IDN hostname resolution in NetBSD
So, I'm thinking about naming a host something that includes an
upper-ASCII character. In looking into IDN, and how that works in
bind, I was able to add the hostname's A record into my local
nameserver (running stock bind on a NetBSD 5.1_RC1 machine).
Interestingly, this seems to work just fine from my mac. I can ping
the hostname, and it resolves, and ping behaves as expected. I find
that I can't use host(1) (or nslookup(1) for that matter) to resolve
It's worse on my NetBSD machines. Both 5.1_RC1 machines and
5.99.29 machines, if i try to host, or ping, or anything the name
(I've set my LANG environment variable to en_US.UTF-8), I simply get
name resolution failures.
Is the resolver in NetBSD able to resolve IDN in a relatively
transparent way? Are there hoops that need to be jumped through?
And, while I'm asking the question, is there any known issues/
resolutions with setting a NetBSD machines local hostname to an UTF-8,
or Latin-1 even, name?
