Cannot resolve hostname turris itself

When setting up your Omnia Turris, you can define a TLD for your local network.

Typically this is “lan”.

You can also configure the hostnames of the devices getting a DHCP lease to be inserted into the DNS records of the local resolver.

This is fantastic, however I noticed that unfortunately the hostname of the omnia turris itself is left out.

So if the hostname of my Omnia Turris, is the default “turris”, I cannot ping it using turris.lan

I know I can configure this manually by configuring d̶n̶s̶m̶a̶s̶q̶ knot, but this seems like a small improvement which could be added automatically based on the chosen hostname of the router and it’s configured local lan network.

For reference, here’s how to add static address records into DNS on Omnia – it’s not about dnsmasq as that isn’t used for DNS by default (should work the same on MOX as well, I believe).

@vcunat Ah thanks for pointing out it’s not dnsmasq and for the reference on how to do it manually :slight_smile:

But it doesn’t solve the main problem - router name should be resolved out of box without any manual configuration changes…

Yeah, would indeed be a nice convenience
