I have these two lines in my /etc/dnsmasq.conf
Dnsmasq is running on a Pi. Also on the same LAN is my Win 7 laptop. When I
make this request from Chrome on the laptop. http://mymovies this is what I
get in the dnsmasq log file:
Oct 21 23:38:12 dnsmasq: query[A] mymovies.home from XX.XX.XXX.XXX
Oct 21 23:38:12 dnsmasq: config mymovies.home is 192.168.1.124
However when I make this request from Chrome http://mymovies.ncp this is
what I get in the dnsmasq log file:
Oct 21 23:41:54 dnsmasq: query[A] mymovies.ncp from XX.XX.XXX.XXX
Oct 21 23:41:54 dnsmasq: config mymovies.ncp is 192.168.1.124
Apologies if this is a really basic question, I am a beginner with dnsmasq.
Why is .home appended to a hostname when it is just a plain simple word
without any domain or tld?
