DescriptionFrom the forums (first comment) - [^]

It would also be nice for the static leases to be able to populate the hosts file if you give the lease a name.

Or perhaps, rather than populate the hosts file, add a configuration directive --dhcp-host to dnsmasq.conf or one of its subfiles. This looks like you can set the MAC, IP address and host name in one line, which could be in a separate sub-file. This would replace /etc/ethers combined with the hosts file.

From the man page, it would be better to use a subfile specified by --dhcp-hostsfile=<path> as this is reread when a SIGHUP is issued avoiding the need to reload dnsmasq when changes are made.

This change could then be integrated into the Network Map as you would then have a link between MAC and Device Name.
