Local name resolution

I have a computer on my LAN plugged into my SH3.  I can address it by IP address but not by name (I get "Temporary failure in name resolution").  I have tried both static IP address and a reserved dynamic address.  This is also the case with all the hosts on my network, none of which I can address by name.

How do I configure local name resolution on my LAN using an SH3?

Re: Local name resolution

Hello

I have seen this, this is due to the Virginmedia DNS servers not knowing anything about your home network, and the only solution I have found to this is too purchase and use your own router which mush have DNS caching.

Re: Local name resolution

Or just run your own dhcp and dns server. You can skip the dhcp server if all your clients are static ip.

Re: Local name resolution

Thank you for your reply.

Only one of my local clients (out of at least 15) is static so I need a DHCP server.  I'm trying to get boxes off my network so it's frustrating to have to put another box on the network simply to do local name resolution.  It might be easier to put my MQTT broker (which is what the static IP server is) in the cloud rather than on a Raspberry Pi but that would mean re-programming my IoT devices, which is also pretty annoying.

I suppose I could just run the DNS server on the MQTT broker machine but I prefer to keep separate servers for separate purposes to minimise the impact of a system failure.
