How can a computer running avahi ascertain and display its OWN hostname in the event that it is dynamically changed to foo-2, foo-3, etc due to hostname conflicts with other devices on the network?
When two computers (both with hostname = foo) that are running avahi-daemon and are on the same networks, as expected they can be accessed via ssh as
foo-2.local. Eg, the hostname collision is being handled correctly by avahi.
However, on both machines the command
foo. So that is not dynamically updated when avahi does it's hostname renaming.
What command will show the correct (dynamical) hostname to access a computer?
These are mobile devices, and I want to display "my hostname is XXXX.local' on each device so when more than one device is present the user know WHICH hostname to enter to go to "their' device.
