Unanswered Question

Hi All,

Relatively simple one here: I can gain remote (telnet,SSH) access to my device(s), however I can only access via IP address not hostname. I am aware that some sort of host file configuration but to be honest after an hour of trying to find out how I'm struggling. What's the config, how do I implement it? Thanks in advance for the continued excellent service!!!

You either create a DNS record or amend your windows host file located c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\
