4.1.1. Hostname selection

Enter the hostname you want to give to this IPCop.

Type in a name, using only alphanumeric characters and hypens, without spaces, and press the Ok button to accept.

The default of ipcop is fine. You may want to change this if you are planning on setting up a VPN and allowing administration across your VPN. In this case you may want to give each IPCop machine a unique hostname, such as ipcop1, ipcop2, or millie, steve, bob, etc.

Hostname selection

To “press” a button, like the Ok button on the hostname selection screen above, use the Tab key to jump between elements, and press the Space bar or Enter key when the appropriate button is highlighted.
