Unique network names

I have a Vero as well as two PI-2’s on my home network.
Can a unique name be assigned to each device since only one “OSMC” will show up on the Windows network at any given time.
If so can it be done through the GUI on each device or would I have to SSH into each and edit a particular file?

SSH in and edit /etc/hosts and /etc/hostname

I am looking at making it possible to do this from Kodi itself in the near future



Thanks ActionA, worked fine. New at Linux and it’s a bit of a learning curve for an old man used to ms-dos for the last 30 years. :smile:

Someone more familiar with MS-DOS command line may well find it easier to convert than a Windows user - especially once your fingers get used to reversing the “”.

Good luck.

Vacuum tubes to transistors to TTL logic and truth tables to computers and the internet. It’s always a steep learning curve and keeping up is getting harder all the time.
