Description

It would be nice to allow the changing of the shortname(NETBIOS) name.

Not only that but this would also allow for multiple Amahi servers on the same network. Each running different services for security reasons.

May I suggest that the configuration of this name is added to the dashboard under Shares > Settings next to the Workgroup Config Area.

This would be a useful feature for me too, migrating from a WHS, and having some apps which hard link to files on the server, I'd like my HDA to have the same name as the WHS did.

Thanks
Chris

enar as i can tell this goes in two places - the smb.conf and also the lmhosts file.

well - and a third place dns?

or smb clients do not care about dns?

can anyone test this?
