Configuring via hostname instead of ip

    Hi!

    I've been using Tomato since 1.15 and really enjoy it's power and simplicity. Lately, I added a new computer to the local network. I use exclusively Static DHCP, so all computers have the same ip at all time.

    When I go configuring "Access Restriction" or "Port Forwarding", I must enter IP or MAC address. Is there a way to enter hostname instead? If I remember correctly, it's possible in a linux computer (using iptables).

    Thanks!

    "so all computers have have the same ip at all time"

    can't work if every computer are on at the same time

    Sorry, should have been "each computer have a respective ip at all time":

    hercules=192.168.0.100
    dakota=192.168.0.101
    galaxy=192.168.0.102
    etc

    My point being that hostname are as "constant" as ip addresses. They could be used in configuration.
