Retrieve name of the computer

Hi,

How can I retrieve the name of the computer vvvv is running on (ex: HP 54867-854)?
I don’t want to use IP or MAC to identify a computer, just its name.

Thanks

Hey,
I made a small plugin,

AWESOME!!!

Related and also useful, this script will give you both your computer’s name & all of the names on the LAN. It will write Lanlist.txt next to itself, which you can then parse from vvvv.
