Video Guide:

  • 0:00 Watching traffic come in with unresolved IP addresses
  • 0:10 Turning on IP address resolution (this affects what appears in the "Hostname" column)
  • 0:20 Turning on in-message IP address resolution (this is optional, can be slow, and affects what appears in the "Message" column)
  • 0:27 A quick glance at the DNS server settings (which DNS server to use, whether NetBIOS is to be used, etc.)
  • 0:29 A quick glance at the DNS cache settings
  • 0:30 Turning on resolution of frequently-uses IPs from a local hosts file (this is very fast, but ignores changes to DNS servers)
  • 0:35 How to edit the hosts file
  • 1:30 Watching traffic come in with properly resolved IP addresses
