  • I ahve several machines that show the IP address of devices on the Lan, some of them I am pretty sure are computers and not devices, what triggers the hostname send on machines?I have a couple of different networks that are showing this, on Like I stated earlier, Im pretty sure some of the machines are actual computers that LANwatch sees, but does not report the hostname.

    Thanks for your help

  • You will need to ask or check first if that computer have any kind of firewall running. I found many times that it happens with XP or other Desktop Firewall is running on that machine. The best here is to have agent installed via script.
