RFC 8375

  • Hi, what are your thoughts on 'home.arpa' for private/home domain use?

    RFC 8375

    I haven't been able to find much about this, seems the most common thing to do is use 'local.lan', but I'm trying to learn and wondering if 'home.arpa' would be the better choice?

    Also, if you get this far, why does the RFC state the domain as 'home.arpa.' (notice the extra dot at the end)? I tried setting up a pfSense appliance/network using the extra dot but it says it's not valid, 'home.arpa' does work though. What am I missing here...?

    Thank you!
