Just put the following into the <bbwin> section of the xml file in .\bbwin\etc\bbwin.cfg
<setting name="hostname" value="servername" />
The other thing I like to do is use the bbwingui tool to configure a bunch of those settings.

dropping the files in the /tmp folder is what I was looking for, however, I was hoping to ignore the hostname from the agent, and was hoping to be able to give an hostname alias in the file.
is this possible?

the alc filename would be "process name" and content would be in date format, not sure if help, like this:

I'm still trying to migrate all the infrastructure away from the old ancient BB into XYMon, I am done with the server, I am now trying to migrate all the clients to BBWin (or WinPSClient" if that's what I'll need to do.
The problem is that the BB client used to pick up everything inside the Log folder specified and send it to the server, consuming all the files in there.
So we have some .Net code that used to write ALC so that we know that data is flowing back and forth keeping the ALC lights Green at all the time. When there is a problem, it goes purple because files are not being written in there (or else) and I get paged.
So now my question is, how can I migrate this to BBWin, do I need to install the FSMon External and monitor a folder where I am going to write the ALC?
