How to make Friendly Names appear in the report   11 November 2016, 00:23

Hi. I created friendly names, the list is there, but does not appear in the report. Is that right? If "yes", that means I must remember each IP or MAC to know what I'm looking at, since not every IP address shows a Host name and I cannot insert a Host name.

It should appear in the Friendly Name column if there is a matching record, as shown below:

Hi. I did exactly that, except I used the IP address. Not listed.
Tried MAC address. No luck.

Could you perhaps post a screen shot similar to mine?
By the way, the friendly names may appear only after a rescan.
Got it! Rescan helped. Thanx
