I have xrdp installed and running on a Raspberry Pi 3B+ running stretch. The Pi's name and address, from the /etc/hosts file, are:
When I try to access the Pi from Windows 10 via Remote Desktop Connection, if I specify "mycroft" as the target the connection fails -- I get asked for a user name & password, but they're rejected -- while if I specify the numeric IP address RDC launches & I immediately get the xrdp signin screen.
nslookup mycroft on the Windows command line shows the name correctly resolving to 10.0.0.5
I've never seen a situation where a numeric IP address works but its human-readable alternative fails.
Thoughts on what's going on, and how to fix it?
