Sending your devices name lets you filter analytics and logs by device.

Is it possible to set a custom client (device) name when configuring NextDNS via CLI?

This option is already available/configurable when downloading a profile (MacOS), so I think/hope it would be easy to add it to the CLI tool 🙏


I have a script that sets a new random hostname for my device every time it boots up, which makes viewing logs/analytics of my NextDNS usage not that helpful.


PS: I have to use the CLI cause another network extension (little snitch) is blocking nextdns profile from taking over.
