Norton Core and Apple Device Hostnames (Bonjour)
Since installing my Norton Core, I have noticed that my Apple devices seem to be having issues with duplicate hostnames on the network, which cause numbers to be appended to the hostnames. While I can't say that it has directly caused an issue, it is something that I'd prefer not to have happen as we use a number of their services. I know a lot of people suggest using DHCP reservations, but that doesn't seem to have had any effect.
Non-Apple devices do not appear to have this issue, which leads me to believe something is screwing up Bonjour communications between the devices. Does anyone else out there have a lot of Apple devices on their network and have this problem?
This photo illustrates the problem for some of my devices; I also see it on my MacBook Pro and Mac Mini, as well as occasionally my iPhone.
