Description

It would be useful to be able to define from which interface this hostname to IP mapping is defined, in the event that your management network is not on the "LAN" network. This could be a menu option somewhere in the General Settings page or a checkbox on the target interface's page.

Presently, system.inc defines the hostname to IP mapping of pfSense to the LAN interface. That is, name resolution lookups using unbound or dnsmasq use this generated value in /etc/hosts whenever you try to resolve the hostname or FQDN of the pfSense instance.
