Perhaps it would help if you told us what kind of machine, operating system,
connection - etc etc.

Anyway I believe your host name (sometines called computer name) is
different from your user name. My Inet provider asked my what name I wished
to give my computer. You might check with your Inet provider. Perhaps they
just gave your machine a name of their own choosing.

I am running Win 3.11. The host name is in the [DNS] portion of the
SYSTEM.INI. The paragraph reads as follows

[DNS]
DNSServers=nnn.nn.nn.n
HostName=XXXXXX
DomainName=xxx.xxx

Of course the nnn's are numbers and the xxxx's are letters

I hope this helps a bit.
