I am connecting with putty to a stock Ubuntu machine hosted at EC2, and notice the following:
When I connect, the title of the putty window appears at first as the hostname I enter (e.g. "myhostname.com"). After it's connected, the hostname changes to a different string -
user@domU-12-31-20-0a-81-AB: ~ (different on each machine).
This look like an ethernet address of sort, I'm not sure. It's really annoying because once I open 2-3 putty consoles I can't remember which is which.
Is it possible a ~/.bashrc script run from the machine itself changes the putty title? Somewhere else I should look into?
I forgot to mention this ... but I have tried this and the title I set up in the connection is shown briefly when connecting, but then overriden just like the default hostname title.
