Unfortunately, if they are *all* the same hostname, and behind NAT, they
will just be seen as *one* host ... what is PCBSD?
It's a user-friendly version of FreeBSD designed to provide a workstation
environment for the more novice-style users.. see here for details:
It's not a different BSD OS per se (as opposed to Free/Dragonfly/Net/OpenBSD)
but obviously the pre-defined hostname is a problem for determining
uniqueness... I wonder if this is something better addressed by the PC-BSD
developers as part of their setup process?
In this case, I think it would have to be ... as much as I hate to refer
to Windoze, but even they at least do something semi random when you setup
the machine for a hostname, so that not everyone is 'the same' ...
