I currently have a Raspberry Pi 4 set up on my home network, running Pi-hole. I also have a desktop on this network, dual booting Windows and Linux Mint. When I'm running Linux Mint, I can connect to the Pi via SSH without difficulty. When running Windows, I can't resolve the
raspberrypi domain name, despite the Pi working as my DNS server:
> nslookup raspberrypi Server: raspberrypi Address: 192.168.1.223 *** raspberrypi can't find raspberrypi: Non-existent domain > nslookup raspberrypi.local Server: raspberrypi Address: 192.168.1.223 *** raspberrypi can't find raspberrypi.local: Non-existent domain
I've tried flushing DNS on Windows with
ipconfig /flushdns. I've also checked C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts, there's nothing relevant there.
My Pi has a static IP, so I could use the raw IP or add an entry to my hosts file, but I'd like to know what's going on. Anyone know why I wouldn't be able to
nslookup or otherwise resolve my Pi's hostname?
