    Hey guys, weird problem... Searched around but did not find anything.

    If i connect via SSH to my iPod, using the hostname, no problem at all. E.g.;

    ssh root@SirCharlos-Modded-iTouch.local

    The hostname (in this case 'SirCharlos-Modded-iTouch.local') is equivalent to using the device's IP address. I can use it to connect to my device, whatever it's IP is. However it will sometimes change hostnames for no reason...

    Such as, instead of using SirCharlos-Modded-iTouch.local, i will have to use SirCharlos-Modded-iTouch-2.local for it to work. Recently, this got up to SirCharlos-Modded-iTouch-8.local.

    Very confusing !!!

    Any help ?
