RVS4000 DHCP client table in DNS relay?

    I am using the RVS4000 for my DHCP and DNS.

    In the WAN setup I have my domain set to jentfoo.com (which is just a domain I own, and use for personal stuff). I want to be able to access clients via there hostname. But when I resolve through I am unable to get any resolutions of both clients on the DHCP as well as clients on the static DHCP. I figured in the very least that static DHCP entries would be available for the static DHCP entries (why else does it ask for the hostname in the static entries?).

    Anyone have any ideas as to why I can't resolve the hostnames via the relay DNS (I am positive I am using the router as my DNS server)? If this router is not capable of it, can anyone recommend a router that can, the other main feature I really need from a router is robust QoS.

    Thanks for any advice on how to get this router to relay DHCP Clients in the DNS.

    if you ping your computer name (i.e., "box1") you're not getting a reply back with the assigned ip address of the computer?

    Assuming box1 is not the computer I am currently on, then you are correct. I can not resolve any of the other machines on the LAN via there hostname even though I can see there hostname in the DHCP client table.

    I am starting to think this firmware is not capable of it....So instead I am looking at maybe modifying the firmware:

    Anyone else interested? If I had some help I would be interested in possibly doing other small changes as well.
