Hostnames with IPs or instead



  • Is it possible in any way to have pfsense apps like proxy report, or whatever show hostnames for the PCs that the DHCP server leases ips to instead of IPs?

    I have gone through the trouble of naming all PCs however no hostnames show up in ntop, proxy report or anything that presents any data about lan pcs.

    pls advise

    Probably not.

    If you have the DNS forwarder enabled, and have it register your DHCP hosts and statics there, it may help, but it's up to the individual packages to support resolving hostnames in that fashion.



  • FWIW: bandwidthd does show host names if you do as Jimp says.
