You can setup DNS resolution for the logging but its highly not recommended as it will slow things down terribly.. Either way the 'name' you're talking about is the Windows netbios name, and it will not resolve to that.. If you want to get some information on the IP, do a whois query on it.. or nslookup..

Doing reverse lookups before logging is a very bad idea.. really !
