I tested it with the the ocserv-script and added the value $Hostname in it get the Hostname. 
The Line in the ocserv-script now looks like echo "User '$USERNAME' from '$IP_REAL' connected. Local IP is '$IP_REMOTE' Hostname is '$Hostname'" >> /etc/ocserv/test2.txt and output it to a file that I can see the variables. When a client connects I get the following Output "User 'test' from 'X.X.X.X' connected. Local IP is 'X.X.X.X' Hostname is ''" and the Value of the Hostname variable is empty all other variables in the script has the correct value in it. In the debug log I see the correct hostname in this entry HTTP: X-CSTP-Hostname.

Isn't it exported in the HOSTNAME variable available on the up/down scripts?
