Windows uses the term 'domain' to mean something more than just DNS domain. All versions of Windows are aware of DNS domains; it's the other kind they upsell. > I checked my router homepage and there is an option in there to pull up the > homepage using the url http://mymodem.home instead of the usual > http://192.168.1.254 It lets you change the "mymodem" part.

Your router is almost certainly sending .home as the DNS domain in its DHCP response. Windows is appending it on bare-hostname lookups because it was told by its DHCP server that it is part of the .home DNS domain. khm _______________________________________________ Dnsmasq-discuss mailing list Dnsmasqemail@example.com http://lists.thekelleys.org.uk/mailman/listinfo/dnsmasq-discuss
