I was trying to simplify name resolution within the LAN. It worked well with Zeroconf, so I will show you how to use it.

As you know, we've used /etc/hosts and DNS to resolve host names for a long time. However, these have inconvenient cases. It's troublesome to maintain /etc/hosts at many computers. DNS is suitable to manage many host names hierarchically, but it's a bit overspec for computers on a LAN and it takes a while for using updated DNS entries because of their TTLs.

Now, zeroconf is here. You can resolve computer names on a LAN automatically by zeroconf daemon running on each computer. As the name says, it doesn't need manual maintenance like /etc/hosts and DNS. I've evaluated it on some computers running openSUSE and Windows to reduce administrative work. It made name resolution much easier, but it had some restrictions. In this session, You will see the advantages, problems and tips of it.
