Question Boson NetSim Question

Hello everybody. My name is Edward and I am a systems administrator. Recently the Director of IT gave me this simulator to practice configuring Cisco routers. They are a great reference but I have a question.

As I get deeper into the tutorials it is asking me to name multiple routers. I am getting confused on how to do this. To name a router I have to do this from the command terminal. I have an attached image showing what I need to do.

My question is:

How do I decipher, name/switch between routers? As you can see in the 2nd image I attached when I go to configure terminal and input "hostname Router2" it just changes the router name of the 1st one? In this lab it states we have 3 routers. Any advice from somebody who has done this before? I am getting rather confused

Maybe another line of work? How long you been a system administrator? It's not everybody's cup of tea!

It is April 1st, so...

I am not trying to be rude, but isn't that rather basic?

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.
