Add Hostnames to client Ips


I find myself having to commonly look up on a outside ip scanner what hostname maps to what ip on my network to figure what where some traffic is coming from. I don’t know if this is out of scope info a dns server cannot get, but it’d be great to have the hostnames as a hover tooltip for the ips or something, then we don’t have to keep looking them up on outside programs.


There are three ways to do this now:

  1. Enable conditional forwarding to the router (may not work with all routers). Admin GUI > settings > DNS.

  2. Use the Pi-Hole DHCP server. Admin GUI > settings > DHCP.

  3. Map your clients in the etc/hosts file on the Pi.
