Interesting one for you all, anyone know me what is going on?
Background: I have just purchased a new mac - an entirely new experience for me actually, having only had PC's before.
I have noticed that the mac won't resolve my hostnames on my pfsense local DNS, not completely anyway. A little explanation:
Hostname 1: pfsense
Works on both windows and mac when typing in the url bar of a browser.
Hostname 2: TEXT-10
Only works on windows based browser when typed in the url bar. Mac just sends me off on a google search.
Could this be because of the '-' in the second hostname? I don't know why it wouldn't resolve one when it's perfectly happy with the other.
I'm probably missing some information for a diagnosis but since I don't know what im looking for I thought I would keep it relatively short and sweet. Happy to provide any more information if anyone has any ideas

Well perfect, if your running pfsense - just create whatever dns records you need
If pfsense is also your dhcp server - then have it register those entries
I would also suggest the bottom two checkmarks - so that your not forwarding say hostname to your isp when there is no domain on it, and would last one no reason to do rfc1918 ptr upstream.Go to the full post
