oes linux sp2 iprint dns resolution not working

I posted in iPrint forum also, but thought I should try here.

I have oes linux sp2, iprint on same server. DNS is on WinNT40. I cannot
resolve dns for anything in the same zone as the oes server, so printers
do not resolve in iprint unless I add them to the etc/hosts file. I
already have the server name and the iprint alias in the etc/host file.
Why can't I resolve dns names in the same domain as the server? Can't find
anything in docs or online.

This was resolved in the iPrint forum. OES (linux and other variants)
cannot resolve in .local name spaces. Thanks

By default, .local names are resolved through multicast DNS; see
http://support.novell.com/techcenter/sdb/en/2005/07/rdassen_multicast_dns.html
for details on how to change this behaviour.
