I was just (unsuccessfully) playing around with setting up a vpn in OS X Server, and now all my new terminal prompts begin with "vpn" followed by my user name. Anyone know why this is the case and how I can revert back to my default prompt, without "vpn"?


SuperUser has a similar question/answer. I thought this was covered here already, but couldn't find it.

Found it!


As you were setting up the vpn it got changed.

That can be changed in System preferences - Sharing - Computer Name.

Use Edit to change the name to your liking.


First it shows the Machine name, then your user name.

In my case myMBA:~ Buscar$
