I'm having a problem with networking under Snow Leopard.
I have my DHCP client id set to mac-vh in the network preferences as well as the computer name setting under sharing.
When I launch terminal at home it correctly shows my machine name as mac-vh.
When I connect at work, it arbitrarily assigns someone elses' name on the network to my machine.
I wouldn't really care except that I run software that looks at that value and requires it to be the same as when I installed the software. It needs to be mac-vh or the program won't run properly.
I've googled this problem and the sites I've found say to make sure networking settings match what's in the sharing setting. Our network admin doesn't know the answer.
