    Just getting started with Bash/WSL to try and make my Raspberry Pi from Windows experience a bit slicker. I want to ssh to my Pi as user@hostname.local. I have Apple's Bonjour service running and have configured my Pi with avahi, and from a command prompt in Windows or from PuTTY I have no problem pinging / connecting to user@hostname.local. However from a bash prompt I get an "ssh: Could not resolve hostname raspberrypi.local: Name or service not known" error. Am I missing something? Many thanks!

      Hi Graham, I believe this is the same issue correct? If so let's track this on the GitHub issue, thanks!
