This question already has an answer here:
My machine name is set
shiny in System Preferences/Sharing/Computer Name.
From another machine on the network, I can only use
shiny.local to refer to this machine. In the past, I used only
In a terminal, I have
new-host-7 instead of the machine name.
I don't know if this is relevant, but the computers are connected to an internet box, on which a DHCP server is activated. I assigned a static IP address to the Mac. The internet box can see the name I gave to the Mac.
Is there something I can do to refer to the Mac as
shiny on the network ?
