Mint 18.3 xfce not resolving LLMNR

Post by frugelhorn » Wed May 23, 2018 5:31 am

My understanding of the systemd resolver was that it should be able to resolve names via LLMNR, however this does not work for me.

If a ping a device's name (which I know to respond to LLMNR requests), this fails. However if I do:

Code: Select all

systemd-resolve <devicename>
This resolves correctly and returns the IP.

I also noticed that systemd-resolved is not running from boot.

So it seems like it might be a config issue. Following a suggestion elsewhere I tried changing the nsswitch.conf hosts: line

Code: Select all

files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns

Code: Select all

files resolve [!UNAVAIL=return] mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns
but no joy.

So why might ping not be using the systemd resolver? Any help appreciated.
