I'm trying to connect to several computers via their hostnames since they get their IP via DHCP. I can successfully ping the machines via
avahi-resolve and even Firefox all send out the required mDNS packages, which I checked throug Wireshark (UDP on port 5353).
ssh doesn't seem to try to resolve the adresses at all. There are no mDNS queries issued and the output for
ssh host-01.local just says:
ssh: Could not resolve hostname host-01.local: Device or resource busy
ssh -vvv host-01.local it is:
OpenSSH_7.6p1 Ubuntu-4ubuntu0.3, OpenSSL 1.0.2n 7 Dec 2017 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 19: Applying options for * debug2: resolving "host-01.local" port 22 ssh: Could not resolve hostname host-01.local: Device or resource busy
The client is running Linux Mint. The network I'm in doesn't seem to matter. Everything else related to
avahi seems to work just fine.
