Geezer and Carbon based biped, with a fondness for hard cheese, Amigas, synthesised noises and competing in sprint triathlons.

Unix geek at heart, Mac user since 10.4 so still a little green on some things (Dog cow? Teh snappy?), but familiar to some extent with almost every current computing platform know to man, and some that aren't.

comment Installing specific iOS version on iPhone 4S
To extend the answer slightly, you can do it, if you have previously done it on the same device, and had the forethought to save your signed upgrade files. This doesn't help you, but may help you fend off questions from people who say it can be done. It can, but only in very specific scenarios which do not apply to you.

comment hostname configuration for remote access
I take it your domain name details are provided by your IT department, and you merely wish to understand how to apply them? Is the Mac internal to a work infrastructure, and you want to remotely access it from home, or the other way round? Just do we can understand the topology and direction of access. If you can add more detail and clarify it would help.
