DNS lookup in syslog receiver sensor

Is there a way to have the PRTG syslog receiver do a DNS lookup on the source of each syslog message?

For example, right now I get this in the log: 1438: Severity "Warning" in [172.26.243.30: : 2012 Aug 6 14:03:19 PDT: %OSPF-4-DUPRID: ospf-20 [4630] (default) Router 10.255.10.3 on interface Vlan10 is using our routerid, packet dropped]

I'd like PRTG to do a lookup on 172.26.243.30 to resolve to the hostname and print that instead.

Is that possible? Thanks, Tim

dns hostname syslog
