I often want to ssh to a Mac and would love to make use of of MobileMe to look up IP/DNS routing information.
Let's assume of my on-all-the-time Mac at home's hostname is "maui" and it's running Snow Leopard. When I'm on my laptop connected to the home network, I can
ssh maui.local. It sure would be nice to be able to
ssh maui.connectivity.me.com or whatever would work in place of connectivity.me.com (I've also tried members.me.com to no avail). I'm guessing I would need "maui" and my mobile me name to let it know which machine under my account needs reaching.
Does anyone know if this is possible through API or command line? I've browsed the public developer information several times but don't see anything promising. Any pointers or code examples would be welcome.
When I turn off and then on Back To My Mac - messages in system.log make me think mDNSresponder or racoon might be the entry points to get this functionality.
May 12 22:36:43 maui awacsd: Connecting AWACS client: bmike hello.connectivity.me.com May 12 22:36:51 maui mDNSResponder: Adding registration domain bmike.members.mac.com.
P.S. Please don't suggest free DNS accounts as I'm really interested in MobileMe exclusively for this question. I know those will work but I'd rather hack/extend use this if at all possible.
