Local name resolving not working if using 'home.arpa' DNS suffix for LAN

Factory reset Turris 1.1 with OS 6.0.1, only after minimal initial configuration. If I set the local DNS suffix to ‘home.arpa’, the Knot blocks resolving local names taken from the DHCP configuration with reference to the standard Locally-Served DNS Zones. If I use, for example, the suffix ‘in.lan’, local resolving works OK. Yet, if I understand correctly, ‘home.arpa’ should be the suffix intended for local networks.

Right. We work upstream on combining these rules better.

In the meantime, you can unblock the subtree. EDIT after months: I’m sorry, it does not work due to another issue.

(Queries to non-existing names may then leak to upstream resolver, contrary what the RFC requires.)
