Does the name resolution also work in ARP decodes? In my Version 3.0.6 windows 64Bit it does not seem ti wirk. The OUI resolution works.

Running Version 3.0.6 (v3.0.6-0-g908c8e357d0f) here and works ok.

(Running on 64-bit Windows 8,)

Did see a few where it was initially not resolved but then were when I went back to check.

Is it resolving ok for other protocols there?

I should be more specific, the name resolution of a profile specific host file.

I'm assuming "Resolve MAC addresses" is enabled. Does it work if you restart Wireshark?

No this is a different question @bubbasnmp this here is about Ip address resolution. Which works fine for IP addresses but not if they are inside a ARP header. And my question is, if this only works with dns or also with a profile host file?
