Status / DHCP leases

  • Hi,

    It seems that the Status / DHCP leases log page does not update the hostname column as frequently as I wish ;-)

    How can I kick pfsense to re-read all the connected IP addresses' hostnames?

    Thanks for a tip on this



  • Hi,

    Sorry if I expressed myself unclearly…..

    Is the DHCP leases log supposed to reflect an immediate change to a client's change of hostname?  I.e. when a workstation's hostname is changed, when is the dhcp lease log supposed to display the new hostname?  Immediately or after the the dhcp lease has expired?

    Thanks a bunch if someone can comment on this


  • The hostname is read from the dhcpd.leases file. When the host renews the dhcp lease the hostname change should appear.
