Show Player IP in Stations screen in Signage Studio

It would be extremely usefull to get the players IP address shown in the Stations view for remote managing the player when the signage player crashes

We had that feature under StudioPro > Stations but it was removed later due to some re factoring we did.
Will push to add it in a future build.

I am pretty sure the feature is back on, please check with live chat, but you should be able to pull the IP address of a station when you enable the LAN server mode under StudioPro > Stations

What about in the console -- studio -- show IP Address, MAC Address, etc.
This information is definitely available and would help with diagnosis of computers over a distance.

IP Addresses change
MAC addresses don't

This addition will help sys admins find the player on a 'lost' network to create valuable rules.

Yes. Mac addresses are static
IP addresses aren't always static

In order to find a system on a network -- for stores with several hundred computers -- MAC Address is important
