Hello,

I am running Apache, and my computer name is mx458, so other computers on our network can access my webserver by typing in on their browser http://mx458, is there a way I change the name so they can access it by typing in http://frankswebserver.  Is there a way I can do this without changing my computer name?

Hello failmorad,

Try adding a DNS entry- Host (A) file (frankswebserrver - IP address) to the zone where the mx458 resides.

but would the other computers be able to access it using frankswebserver, or do they have to configure their hostfile as well.  I know that I can do this by having all the machines that connect to my computer configure their host file.  But i will give it a shot

Add a host file on your DNS server.
