I've recently done a fresh install of Ubuntu 15.10 and I'm experiencing problems accessing hosts on my local network.
Just an example:
works perfectly, returns the actual hostname (printer is a cname) and corresponding IP address.
Trying to connect, or even pinging this hostname does not work:
returns: ping: unknown host printer.mydomain.local
however "ping printer" does work.
Already tried commenting out the dnsmasq line in /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf added mydomain.local to /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf
all to no avail. What am I missing?
local DNS server is bind9 on Ubuntu 12.04
