[erlang-questions] : Can't set long node name on windows

Try the same but use the machines actual short hostname.
If you do not know it, right click on "My Computer",
choose "Properties", "Computer Name", and compare
the "Full computer name" with the "Domain". The
difference should be the short (unqualified) hostname.

That was for XP.

If the machine is not configured to be part of a DNS
domain, you have that problem to solve before making
Erlang distributed networks work.
