    Default nmblookup ip addresses in report

    How about adding an option which will try and resolve ip addresses within the lan using netbios on reports?

    e.g. nmblookup -A <ip address>

    For those of us supporting windows clients on dynamic ip's this would be handy.

    Cheers,
    Roger

    NetBIOS only exists in the Windows world (which you already know), and Microsoft is moving away from NetBIOS in favor of DNS. At some point, support for it would fade away.

    I did a bit of research, and it appears that if I was to install winbind, and integrate it into nsswitch.conf, then a 'DNS' lookup which doesn't match could be resolved into at Netbios name now.

    Does untangle actually use DNS now to resolve IP's for reports? If it does, then the above might be the best of both worlds...
