The client computer seems to report the 192.x.x.x IP address. This is of course not usable for the lansweeper and so it cannot resolve the right computer name. With LsPush and equal it is working but the machine will run 24/7 and so I cannot apply any start-up script.
How can I force the lansweeper to use the 10.x.x.x address?


PS: The client machine is stand-alone and cannot be added to our domain. So it is also not possible to use the DDNS.

An example hosts file can be seen in the screenshot attached to this post. Computer "LAN-001" now matches
