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:

   http://www.pcbsd.org/?p=learnhome

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' ...
