Recently I havent been able to access my dietpi's server via hostname.local. Oddly enough it seems to be working for my desktop but not my laptop? inputing the ip address on my dietpi still does work though, but i'd like to use the hostname.local if i can. I've already tried flushing the dns using the ipconfig /flushdns command. not sue what else I should be doing.
THe only other thing I notice is that whenever i log onto the server I get the line
Code: Select all
curl: (28) Resolving timed out after 2000 milliseconds
just below the LAN IP information.
Thank you for the help!

many thanks for your message. This doesn't seems to be an issue of DietPi. Looks like you are not able to resolve the host name on your laptop correctly. You could try using command prompt and check result of nslookup <yourname>.local . Usually it should return the DNS server ask as well as the IP address of your DietPi device.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

It looks like the resolver used is not reachable. Make sure it is using the correct one.
If you run just `nslookup` without any arguments it will output the nameserver used.
