Network configuration file
Where is text file "Network configuration" located?
I would like to change "Host"
and "Domain" that was set with "sysinstall".
My current "Domain" is "il.comcast.net"
so I tried
find / -name "il.comcast.net"

I'm assuming you're using FreeBSD. In this case, check /etc/rc.conf

Going through FreeBSD installation process(sysinstall )
I entered "dell" for hostname.
My FreeBSD machine is connected to internet through router
whose ip is "126.96.36.199"
When Installation was finished and after GNOME login screen I got en error:
"Could not look up internet address for dell.
This will prevent GNOME from operating correctly"
I somehow found a web site that would tell me that my hostname is:
I changed "hostanme" in "/etc/rc.conf" file
, restarted my FreeBSD machine and error was gone.
Is there a command to find out what is my "hostname" supposed to be
and I do not mean
c-24-12-126-5 # hostname that just tells me hostname set in
