You can find out the name of the current computer in a variety of ways. The fastest one is the shortcut Win + Pause break. In the System Properties window – Computer name. You can also open the properties of any shortcut or file and go to the tab Details or Security. Another way to find out a local computer’s name is using the hostname command. You can find out the name of a remote computer by running ping with the parameter -a, for example: ping -a 11.22.33.44

In the Update source section, you can also select the option Anti-Virus Network. In the opened line, select the local address of the computer on which the Dr.Web product is installed and the update mirror is configured.
