I changed the domain name for couple of home computers from "local" to

I have ipfire box doing hopefully firewall and DNS and so while I
changed domain I let all get address from its DHCP and gave them fixed
I have 2 debian PCs
I try to find IP address of a cheap IP cctv camera I just bought with
I do "nmap -sn 10.0.0.0/16" to see if camera shows up
oddly finds PCs but gets "I'm here" from the windows PC but on the old
IP address I had previously given it in windows networking
any idea where this identification might be hanging about ?
everything works but it just doesn't look very tidy.
I should point out I don't really know what I'm doing.
Welcome to the club, we've all been there!!! :)
You should look on the device on which you change the TLDS (local >
home) for the dhcp leases and the log.
I hold my hand up there was an entry in "hosts" GUI of ipfire PC about
the old domain/ipaddress of windows PC but I swear I cleared out ipfire
/etc/hosts so I dunno where that came from.
I think it might be something to do with arp cache on all the PCs going
"I know about that"
Still no funny entries in nmap results now except windows PC doesn't
show up at all but guess that is windows firewalling.
regards the CCTV camera is another thing. It's there but is not
streaming on the ethernet, just the WIFI and appears to connect to cloud
servers ( I'll leave that for another day ). my suspicion is that the
Chinese are selling these off cheap to have a peek at European domestic
