IP Address / Machine Name

I have just swapped to a fixed IP address and note that it has an associated Machine Name, presumably from a previous owner, which can be used to identify me on the net. Can this be removed so that only the IP address is broadcast to the world?

Re: IP Address / Machine Name

I'll flag it up to Chris who I believe can change it.
[EDIT]
Turns out he can't. I'm asking someone else.
Done. Should update in around 24 hours time.

Re: IP Address / Machine Name

Thanks very much. It's support like this that keeps many of us with PN despite the price rises, etc. etc.

Re: IP Address / Machine Name

There's a specific ticket path to request such changes which includes details of all the options.
Shame they've made the crass decision to remove access to that!

Re: IP Address / Machine Name

Very interesting,
It would be helpful if this link was clearly shown on the page where you upgrade to a fixed IP. If it's there then I missed it.
