Host Name on XF Gateway

Host Name on XF Gateway

Since initial set up (a month ago), my Host Name on XF Gateway for my iphone was iPhone. A few weeks ago, the Host Name changed to include PART of my name, but is incorrect. The MAC address is correct. This led me to wonder who assigns Host Names? I did not, my system was set up by CC Tech. Would CC suddenly change your host name?

Re: Host Name on XF Gateway

Are you talking about seeing this within the user interface pages of the gateway itself ? Within the Xfi app ? Online ?

 

Not sure if this applies to your model but take a look here;
