Where does HostName come from (that shows up on IP scan, like Angry IP?
Posted on 2008-11-03
When I use an IP scanner on my office LAN, the HostName that shows up (in the scanner's results) are sometimes not consistent with the setting for Computer Name on that PC (after a recent computer name change and reboot). Sometimes, I can reboot the nrewly-named PC several times, and Angry IP Scanner will still show the old name. How does this work? (Where does HostName come from on Angry IP?)
