Network ComputerWeb Address

Hi All

Many thanks in advance for your help on this.

I have installed sharepoint / solidworks on a computer and the system name is \\test and therefore the URL is for the applications http://test:80 

Is there anyway to change this to a more friendly name like http://helpdesk with out reinstalling or renaming the computer

Many thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You won't have to do either.
Is this internal? If so then get your DNS admin to add a record for http://helpdesk that resolves to the IP of \\test server.
Then go to IIS and add this name under "edit bindings" for the site.
