Are Penryn MBP's made (in part at least) by Lenovo?

    I encountered something strange this morning. When enabling VNC and FTP on my Penryn MBP, the address to allow people to connect to is

    ftp://lenovo-590ce084 or browse for "johnlvx's MacBook Pro"

    :eek:

    Does anyone know what this might be? or why? Im puzzled.

    Were you at work or something?

    Where I work, our DHCP servers will give any computer an IP address, but only Windows computers that are members of our Active Directory can update DNS with their hostname.

    So when my Mac gets an IP address, the DNS entry for that IP address shows the name of whichever Windows PC had the IP address before.

    I'd say that you have your hostname set from a DHCP server, which sets it to this lenovo thing, nothing else. Go to Sharing prefpane in System Preferences and put something in "Computer name" field at the top - it should disappear then.

    Actually it is. Well, it was, actually, circa July 2006. What's your point? But whatever, let's stick to what we're all here for <cough> -- grammer.

    I sure hope not! Had to use a Lenovo for 5 years of college. Not fun!
