Change website url in sharing preferences? - 04-09-2009, 06:20 PM
Running osx 10.5.6 perfectly but i have a little question about the webserver in the sharing preferences.
If I enable the webserver it works without any problem but i want to change the url it is showing.
As you can see in the attached screenshot the url to my computer is: http://D32K5JC1.lan
How can i change this to for example my computer name?

Mac OS constructs those URLs by doing a reverse-DNS query on the Mac's IP address, meaning that the system name you see there, "D32K5JC1.lan", is an address your DNS server (probably your home router, or a server maintained by your school or work when you connect there) provides to you, and not a setting on your Mac itself.
