2927NSLU2 sometimes calls itself "noname" (or gives itself no name!?)
- Oct 28, 2005The hostname of my Unslung 5.5 NSLU2 is "gillian". I can find it under
that name in the windows network, it says on it's web interface this
is it's name, I can access it via SSH by typing "gillian" as hostname,
etc., etc.. All perfect. BUT:
- in my router (AVM FritzBox 7050) it appears as "noname"
- my firewall, before I configured it fully to accept my NSLU as
member, told me "noname" from my NSLU2's IP want's something.
- if I SSH into the NSLU2 in my local network the "hostname"
appearing in the window from of putty is "noname"
Does anybody know what the reason for this is? it seems to me that in
these cases either no hostname is transmitted or the hostname "noname".
And in case anybody knows the reason (or not): does anybody know how
to make the NSLU2 tell my router, firewall and putty the correct
hostname ("gillian") by which it can be addressed, but that it is so
shy about telling sometimes?
