Comment 26 for bug 94940

I should also mention I looked at the freedesktop.org link Martin posted and that didn't resolve the issue.
And I should clarify that the domain I mentioned (custname.local) is not an avahi configured domain, it is the name we assigned active directory, and the only DNS server on the network is integrated into active directory. So windows boxes on the network get entries winbox.custname.local automagically, but the lamp vmware image had to be tossed into dns manually. There are a few devices that are using avahi on the network--my laptop, a few printers, and some NAS advertises it's admin front-end.
