logging a connecting pc's hostname

Unanswered Question
Mar 31st, 2008

We have a security requirement to obtain the hostname of machines connecting through our vpn devices. With logging on the local vpn client set to high I see it does log the systems' hostname (below.) Is it possible to capture this into my AAA servers to pass into our database?

Thanks

Address watch added for 192.168.79.105. Current hostname: LHOxxxxxxxxxFQC, Current address(es): 10.219.161.111, 192.168.79.105.

I have this problem too.

Using vpn client the AAA server will authenticate a user on username basis and so it is not possible to log the machine hostname directly to the AAA server. Although you can send the syslogs to a syslog server and then later using some script you can serach for host names.
