My machine name is gitano-mac
This name appears when launching the terminal.
But when I'm joining our company WiFi network, the terminal shows my friends's machine name at the terminal !!
Not enough? my friend's laptop isn't even connected to the network
Today is the first time this happened.
I'm using DHCP and even when I renew the DHCP, I got the same IP
What is going wrong?
Access via airport
I just had the same thing happen (got my first Mac over the weekend).
When I connected the network (with an ethernet cord, no wireless) the machine name took on the name of a consultant's machine who was in the office a couple weeks ago. I'm guessing he was the last person to have that DHCP assigned IP address.
I was able to change it by running the hostname command as root but it reverted to the same thing when I connected this morning.
