I've just installed Ubuntu Server 8.10 on a new (2nd hand=old) server.

I can't seem to get avahi to work.

Avahi is installed, and the server can resolve its own name:


$ ping server.local

works a treat.

My mac laptop cannot resolve "server.local" and the server cannot resolve "matt.local" (the laptop). There's no problem with a connection between them.... SSH and HTTP are working just fine.

Any ideas?
