2 Pis in a Windows Workgroup (Wifi Homenet)

Mon May 16, 2016 8:54 am

hello,
I have connected my Pi with my Windows Workgroup (Wifi Homenet) via Samba, it works fine and I can see it in my PC workgroup folder as
Samba 4.2.10-Debian (Raspberrypi)
I used this guide to set it up:
http://raspberrywebserver.com/serveradm ... twork.html

But if I have a 2nd Pi with identical hardware and software setup, it appears with the same name in the network, and I can't distinguish which is which.

Is it possible to assign specific names to the Pis to appear under their proprietary names then in the Windows net, too?
#define S sqrt(t+2*i*i)<2
#define F(a,b) for(a=0;a<b;++a)
float x,y,r,i,s,j,t,n;int main(){F(y,64){F(x,99){r=i=t=0;s=x/33-2;j=y/32-1;F(n,50&S){t=r*r-i*i;i=2*r*i+j;r=t+s;}if(S){PointOut(x,y);}}}for(;;);}

Change the host name of one of the Pi.
Use 'sudo raspi-config' to do that.

better yet, change the host name of both of the Pis, then you won't have the same hassle again when you add another one or load a fresh OS onto the one you renamed.

thank you, I didn't know it was beyond "advanced options", now I found it and it's perfect :)
#define S sqrt(t+2*i*i)<2
#define F(a,b) for(a=0;a<b;++a)
float x,y,r,i,s,j,t,n;int main(){F(y,64){F(x,99){r=i=t=0;s=x/33-2;j=y/32-1;F(n,50&S){t=r*r-i*i;i=2*r*i+j;r=t+s;}if(S){PointOut(x,y);}}}for(;;);}
