Title: Feature request: list remote hostname on OpenVPN client Connection Status
Post by: porouslolly on May 10, 2018, 06:48:01 pm
One minor tweak to the VPN Connection Status page I'd like to suggest: Under Client Instance Statistics, please add an additional field for the remote hostname that was used to obtain the IP.

Use case/background:
Currently the Remote Host field displays the remote host IP address for an active connection. In my case I have a dozen or so remote hostnames configured, each of which might resolve to several IPs. The hostnames give an indication as to their geographical location. Just looking at the Connection Status I cannot tell which of the hostnames were resolved to obtain the IP. Listing the hostname would help correlate certain hostname entries with poor performance so that they can be removed from the config.
