Hello!

I am using my FreeBSD 4.8 in a local network, I do not have any routable
IPs assigned to the box, so what am I supposed to use as a hostname for
that FreeBSD box?

I have an internet connection (DSL modem with NAT), and I am using the
sendmail on the box, and the problem I have, is that during the boot
time I need to wait 2 minutes for the DNS-timeout.
I wanted to ask, how the hostname is meant to be set in my case.

Cheers,
Constantine.
