Newbie Question
Authored by: Anonymous on Jan 10, '03 11:16:57AM

I haven't messed around wth rendezvous much, so I thought trying this would be a fun start. I installed the plugin, my system now shows up in the Rendezvous bookmarks section, but when I double click it, my browser gets redirected to <hostname>.local which our DNS server doesn't know what to do with.

<hostname> is what's set in the rendezvous secion of my Sharing prefs

Any thoughts? Thanks.

You must have the Webserver Running on your computer. To turn it on, go to: System Preferences: Sharing and turn on Web Sharing. Then when you click on it, thew default Apache Server Files will display... With a little work, you can get your computer running it's very own server... My homepage is actually just this, so check it out...

I've seen similar problems, I'm using squid on a local linux box as a proxy server.

Adding .local to the list of domains to not proxy works, but Safari insists on adding the trailing period if I click on the machine in the Rendezvous menu.

http://imac.local/ works
http://imac.local./ breaks

I think my problem might be due to my local NetInfo setup forwarding the .local names to my linux box for DNS resolution.
