How to setup mDNSResponder on FreeBSD?

I have installed the net/mDNSResponder port on a FreeBSD 7.2 i386
computer. Set to launch the mdnsd on start up (in /etc/rc.conf).
Changed "hosts" line in /etc/nsswitch.conf to "hosts: files mdns dns".
"mDNSIdentify name.local" immediately shows the IP address of the other
computer but "ping name.local" shows following message:
ping: cannot resolve name.local: Unknown host
Its the same for ssh too. Is there anything else to set up in FreeBSD?
Appreciate your reply.
