    ssh eddie.local: getnameinfo failed




      I am trying to ssh into a new Edison that I have setup with configure_edison --name


         Name: eddie2



      After reboot, I could login once. Now I get:


      $ ssh root@eddie2.local

      $ ssh_connect: getnameinfo failed


      Login via IP address works:


      $ ssh root@


      Trying to debug this, I wanted to try dns-rd -B .   But I could not see the name their either.


      Thanks for your help!

          hmm, now it worked, after a restart:


          ssh root@eddie2.local

          The authenticity of host 'eddie2.local (' can't be established.

          RSA key fingerprint is cc:83:49:12:c0:5a:08:59:61:8b:74:46:65:f1:6c:b8.

          Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes

          strange it did not work before.
