How to change the hostname of GameShell


I noticed that every GameShell comes with the same hostname, i.e. “clockworkpi”. This has created a slight inconvenience to me as I have 3x GameShell at home, one for me and two for my two sons. So, If every GameShell is turned on, I think my iMac will get confuse which clockworkpi.local I am trying to Samba connect to. So, I have to go figure out the IP addresses of each GameShell and log in from there. I can’t use the Browse function to connect as all comes with same name. I tried change the /etc/hostname & /etc/hosts file, it seems the TinyCloud info still show as “clockworkpi”. Please advise. Thanks.


You can write on the console:

hostname andthename
