Hi Guys,
I know my question is a so newbie question, but it's really confusing me.
I don't understand the reason of using the dotLOCAL domain name
instead of dotCOM, beside I don't understand how the communication
occurs to and from the Internet to this kind of DomainName.

Your help is so much appreciated.
best regards,


Hey Simon,
a dotLocal domain is not for communicating with others. It is just available within your LAN. It is a possibiliy to create an ADS domain or (I think) kerberos realms without having to register your own domain. You can still communicate with others over the internet, but just not using the dotLocal.
Hope this helps a bit.
