Set up a .local domain for both IPv4 and IPv6 (mDNS)

Postby 1byte » 2018-05-20 07:25

I understand that in order to be able to access PC via "hostname.local" domain I need "NSS module for Multicast DNS name resolution" package
https://packages.debian.org/stretch/libnss-mdns

ping hostname.local works

but IPv6 i get "unknown host":
Code: Select all
ping6 hostname.local
unknown host


I have enabled [server] use-ipv6=yes
/etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf

And my hosts setting in "/etc/nsswitch.conf" is:
hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns4 mdns mdns6
