I recently noticed that when I run
ping raspberrypi it resloves to an IP that is not part of my name but when I run
ping raspberrypi.local I get the raspberrypi in my LAN.
I am wondering if there is a way to not have to type the
.local and have it resolve to the external IP. I ask this question because I remember being able to execute
ssh user@raspberrypi it would resolve to the Pi on my LAN but now I have to use the
.local. Maybe I am imagining things but if this is possible I think it would definitely be convenient.
