I know that many people have complained about this, and I know the standard response (e.g. as posted above by MerakiGeoff on 12/10/19). But has anyone heard any updates that point toward a true "fix"? As of last night, maybe only about 10% of my Windows 7/8.1/10 clients were showing up as their mDNS names, and the rest were showing (as desired) as their host names. It had been like that for probably about a month since an office-wide extended power outage. Today, it is randomly up to about 50% that are showing as mDNS. There weren't any Windows updates last night, nor anything else I can think of which should have caused a change in behavior. My only other thought was that maybe a Chrome browser update did something weird, but it looks like the stable release of Chrome hasn't been updated in about a week now. I don't want to manually configure all of the host names in the MX, and I don't want to install Apple Bonjour for Windows as a poster above suggested. Is there a proper "fix" in the works, or a better workaround that doesn't require unnecessary software?

Thanks. Blocking access to all private address space is definitely more elegant than what I was thinking. It would still be better if it was possible to directly allow traffic to just the internet/uplink, but this can work.
