Hi List,

I just made clean checkout and tested this issue, using samba.local domain for example and it worked just fine.

FWIW, the TLÐs for "example" (com, net,etc.) are reserved for testing.  Your isp will drop packets destined for those domains if you misconfigure, so that's a safe namespace as well.  IIRC the "test" domain is also set aside.

Sorry for top post, I can't get bottom posting to work on my blackberry...

No, but as Michael said mDNS hogs the .local namespace. I personally avoid 
confusion by using .domain instead of .local for my local test domains.

Does that help?
