Thanks for that, very useful. I’ve always stuck to just using IP addresses as the various tools that provide client-side names have changed over the years and rarely worked consistently.

Using the HOSTS file is a good solution if your hosts used fixed IP addresses.

Using a router that supports “hairpin NAT” is good where you want to use the same name externally and internally.

Good routers should also support mDNS which should also possibly be the best answer all round.
