It's an OKIDATA C331DN with an internal web server for configuration, etc. It allows me to change its full name and short name. Currently they are OKI-WXYZ-E6C0F6 and WXYZ. My router is a Linksys WRT320N and I have reserved the IP address with a client name WXYZ.
I'm running 10.9.2. If you mean /etc/hosts, I could add it there - but ideally the solution should apply invisibly to all computers.
Similarly, in the Printers & Scanners pane, it's named WXYZ on the machine "iMac", where it was configured, and known as "WXYZ @ iMac" on other macs.
