#StackBounty: #networking #ethernet #pi-zero Can't find my Pi on my home internet network by its hostname

Bounty: 50

I’ve got a Raspberry Pi Zero V1.2 that is plugged into a powered USB hub that in turn is plugged into my router via Ethernet cable. (Basically like this.)

On my desktop computer, running Arch Linux, when I try running ssh pi@raspberrypi to connect to the Pi, I get this error: ssh: Could not resolve hostname raspberrypi: Name or service not known.

On the Pi, when I run hostname or cat /etc/hostname, the output is raspberrypi.

And here’s the output of cat /etc/hosts:

127.0.0.1       localhost
::1             localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
ff02::1         ip6-allnodes
ff02::2         ip6-allrouters

127.0.1.1       raspberrypi

On my Arch Linux computer, I can connect to the Pi Zero using its IP address on my network by running ssh pi@192.168.1.7.

What must I do to SSH into my Pi using its hostname too?
