[Dnsmasq-discuss] Windows ipv6 hostname

Happy new year!

I didn't manage to get my windows 10 to send a hostname, but I settled 
with a workaround in the dnsmasq config.

If I add an dhcp-host entry like this but without any ip-address I get 
dnsmasq to add the host correctly in the dns.


So now my lease-file looks like this:

   1483400087 3e:fa:72:5b:c7:02 carlsberg 01:3e:fa:72:5b:c7:02
   1483400345 171899506 2001:470:28:6ac::e82c carlsberg 

Before the dhcp-host entry I just had a * on the entry. So now my host 
has a AAAA-record like I wanted in the first place and also I don't have 
it hardcoded to a specific ip-address.
