Default it is avahi? network

The message seems to be coming from avahi:

In Finnish it says

*'Verkkopalveluiden etsintä on kytketty pois päältä. Nykyisen verkkosi toimialue on .local'.
Se ei ole suositeltu asetus eikä yhteensopiva* avahi verkkopalveluiden etsinnän kanssa.'


(An English translation: 'Network searching is disabled. The present network working region is .local.
It is not the recommended setting and not compatible with avahi network search.)*

Does this mean that I need to reconfigure only avahi?

with best,

-hv


P.S.


I'm using lxde

apparently your or the connected network's domain name (used in search list)
is .local

The issue is that .local domain is used by (Avahi) zeroconf and has a
special use so it's not recommended to use by network setups.

change the domain name used to something else (I won't tell you what,
there's no reserved TLD for local usage)

hello,

thank you for the advice.



Here is another question:

Matus UHLAR - fantomas <uhlar@fantomas.sk> wrote:


"change the domain name used to something else (I won't tell you what,

---------------------------


How to do it?


(Which domain name do you mean? My computer?)*


Where can I check my system's domain name?


Or is this 'domain name' .local at my vdsl modem?*


with best,


-hv

mobiles, tablets, windows, macs - they all do use it. So the solution is
usually not to disable avahi but change internal domain.

Hi,

thanks for the messages.

The thing is that the network works.

But it is complaining that something is configured .local.

Do you know if it is my computer or is it the vdsl modem?

Default it is avahi? network

But ugh, that's a lot of stuff to study, when the problem may be rather trivial.

How about try reinstalling all avahi packages. (Using a package manager, check anything with *avahi* in their names.)

I recommend to move to Debian 'testing' anyway (i.e. upgrade) except your laptop is way old. I bet the upgrade fixes the error message.

You'll have to edit your /etc/hosts file to reflect a different domain.

Hope it helps!

Default it is avahi? network

I have been reading recommended texts how to do network setup.*


1)


Chapter 5. Network setup has got one notice telling something about 'wheezy'.

Maybe the problem has something to do with my upgrade to the latest stable:

It says:


----


Tip

Although this document still uses old ifconfig(8) with IPv4 for its network configuration examples, Debian is moving to ip(8) with IPv4+IPv6 in the wheezy release. Patches to update this document are welcomed.


----

2)


I tried to do some fixing and* etc/hosts looks now like this:


127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.1.1 gone.thusgone

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

---

4)


But still avahi is telling the same message about the network configuration being .local, which is not the recommended way. Where is that .local setup existing?


5)


Does anybody know if the problem has really most to do with my laptop configuration or with my new ZyXEL modem?
