Computer Hostname In MWG?

Hello all.

I was wondering, is there currently any way to pull the hostname of the client PCs so MWG can see it? If not, would anyone know if there are plans to include this in the future?

For example, when initiating a Rule Trace instead of getting the IP address of a client PC, we could just enter the hostname and then MWG would be able to resolve that to the IP address and proceed with the trace process. Or even use rule criteria based on PC hostname.

there is a property available to check the DNS Name of a Connecting Client. But take care, this could slow down your Internet Performance if DNS is slow.

You may try the property DNS.reverse.lookup(IP). This property should store then DNS Name of a Client.
