I have a better question, what did both of you enable to get machine names or IP addresses?

Maybe time to crank up the backup box?

Hi lan...

What do you mean by enable...????

I have the same issue as RFCat_vk, I can't see client info, nothing happens when I click the client column. Ahaa, it is my Firefox that is the problem.... I tried another machine and it works there.

I am running w7 64 with ff 4.0.1
I just tried IE 8, still gets the console error I logged in an early 8.2b and causes the ASG cpu load to increase significantly.


Rot my boots, if I click on a column I see lots of additional information, like port, host name, source urls.

Vivekrajput, do you have your local hosts defined in the DNS with revers DNS ticked?

vivekrajput 06-17-2011 01:53 PM


No, i don't have revers DNS.

@InTheAir, machines hosts names are visible to you...???

InTheAir 06-17-2011 02:30 PM

Yes, I see host names.

vivekrajput 06-17-2011 07:16 PM


@InTheAir, could you please explain what king of setup you are using...?? I mean DNS, local or public, Web security Mode or something else, Because i tried in every mode but nothing is working just showing IP address.

InTheAir 06-17-2011 07:33 PM

I have a windows AD server which has DNS with all my host names. If you don't have a local DNS server and use the Astaro to forward maybe try using the "Static DNS Entries" section... might work.
