comment ubuntu server not resolving LAN hostnames
Wow! Awesome answer gertvdijk! Very comprehensive. So much so, that I'll need some time to understand what you've said. I can say that I tested a ping with a dot after the hostname and it worked correctly. I don't use DHCP on this LAN for the permanent machines. I've never configured the .local settings on any machine as I didn't understand what it was all about. I'll investigate this further as per your instructions and get back to you.
