Gibberish for hostname in logs since I put on 2.1.4
all of my log entries are showing the following gibberish instead of the hostname
CPE00e06f126c0f-CM8c04ff1ae6a4 lighttpd: (connections.c.137) (warning) close: 17 Connection reset by peer
I tried changing the hostname to something else and back but still the same. The hostname does seem to show up properly in an SSH session however.
So this morning I SSH into the firewall and now the prompt is messed up as well
editing the hostname under the general setup tab fixed it, but logs still messed up.
Perhaps it's being set by DHCP?
clog /var/log/dhcpd.log | grep -i hostname
Looks like it is DHCP

re0 is my WAN so that is probably the hostname being assigned by my ISP, I guess something changed in 2.1.4 that impacted this? Better question is how to make pfsense ignore that hostname and just use the one I give it. If it matters I am running a 6rd tunnel to my ISP on the WAN as well.
garga put in a fix for this last night, you can use the System Patches package to apply the patch to correct the behavior.
That did the trick, thank you.
