If you want to alert the hostname parameter used by the LANGuardian system simply alter the current value in the in the textbox beside the Hostname parameter and click Save.

Click on the gear symbol, top right and then select configuration. Scroll down to Configuration, set the IP address, SNMP collectors etc of the system and then change the hostname.

The LANGuardian Configuration page will refresh with the new parameter value displayed. If the value you entered was an invalid value for the parameter then an error message indicating this will be displayed.

If you change the IP address or hostname of the system please reboot your system, this will allow the full affects of the change of IP address and hostname to take affect.
