I am trying to get .local name resolution working for SSH. I have the Avahi package installed for mDNS and am on a fresh install of Manjaro Gnome on a 6th Gen X1 Carbon. I can SSH normally using the IP address, but any time I try to ssh using .local (macbook.local for example) it fails.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
Usually your router create the subdomain in your local network.
Check this (adjust the ip):
nmap -sP 192.168.178.0/24
Otherwise you have to specifiy it in your
This is easily resolved using an ssh configfile.
# Port 2894

Installed is not enough, you would need to start the service. And if you use systemd-resolved you might need to configure systemd-resolved to use local MulticastDNS.
@xabbu - How do I enable the service and have it start at startup automatically?

You can use
systemctl enable --now avahi-daemon.service
to start and enable (auto start) it in one step.
Alternative would be
systemctl start avahi-daemon.service
systemctl enable avahi-daemon.service
This fixed it for me, thanks
