[Ntop] (no subject)

On my network we use DNS CNAME-aliases to access most services. I have
problems with Ntop showing traffic as belonging to the aliases instead
of the real computer name. Is there any way to force Ntop to always do a
DNS reverse lookup and thereby get the real computername, instead of
listening on the conversation for names?
In a typical Windows Active Directory environment DNS is used to
translate things like which are the domain controllers for a domain etc.
This means that when Ntop listens to these kind of requests it will
cache the domains' name adress instead of the computer name for the IP
adress captured. So this is an issue even if not using aliases.
I currently run 3.2.6 on Windows 2003.
