Description

Looking at the State table it would be nice to have internal addresses shown as DNS names or aliases if it can be resolved. Possibly hover over the name and it shows the IP address.

If a CSV State table export is considered just using the IP address would be fine.

Instead of something like this...
WAN tcp 1.2.3.4:64438 -> 192.168.1.11:993 (5.6.7.8:993) ESTABLISHED:ESTABLISHED 48 / 78 4 KiB / 64 KiB
WAN tcp 7.1.1.9:58912 -> 192.168.1.12:5001 (5.6.7.8:5001) ESTABLISHED:ESTABLISHED 160 / 167 7 KiB / 19 KiB

Show the determined alias or DNS name.
WAN tcp 1.2.3.4:64438 -> EMAIL:993 (5.6.7.8:993) ESTABLISHED:ESTABLISHED 48 / 78 4 KiB / 64 KiB
WAN tcp 7.1.1.9:58912 -> PHONES:5001 (5.6.7.8:5001) ESTABLISHED:ESTABLISHED 160 / 167 7 KiB / 19 KiB

I see this as helpful as I can then use the filter feature to show states that particular alias or name.

This is unlikely to be viable because it would scale very poorly. That said, if someone can come up with a way to do it that is (a) off by default or takes explicit action to activate and (b) does not adversely affect performance with large state tables, we would consider a PR for it.
