I would like to access my RPi on my local network by a FQDN that I have. Example: my home network can be reached at www.myhome.com and that in turn with port forwarding will reach my RPi internally at 192.168.1.100 (set statically in the router/RPi)
From internally I would like to reach the same RPi at its FQDN of rpi.myhome.com. Since the hostname = rpi and the static IP = 192.168.1.100 it seems like just adding to the /etc/hosts with the entry: 192.168.1.100 rpi.myhome.com Should accomplish this. BUT... that's not the case. I can't seem to get around the problem that any hostname get the .local appended to it via the avahi deamon. So all local request end up as rpi.local.
I can set local DNS in my router I think, it's a Verizon FIOS router. But the problem of .local still exist.
Looking for suggestions.
