I have a dns which I had put into the ip4 config which should in theory give me access to a *.test.local domain. It pings well.
I also disabled the avahi daemon completely. The hosts line in the nsswitch.conf now looks like:
hosts: files mdns4_minimal dns mdns4
Now, when I try to access any subdomain of *.test.local, I get nothing via browser. When I ping, everything is fine.
The SIP hub located at the sip.test.local doesn't connect via SIP client either (I use Zoiper), but also pings well.
How can this be fixed? My ubuntu version is 14.04.
I appreciate all the help.
