Issue: Can’t connect to Volumio.local from my laptop runnng Windows 10 with any of my browsers [Firefox, Chrome, Edge, Internet Explorer] [Update March 09: Opera neither].
Context: Running Volumio vers 2.555 [Feb 19’19 release] on Raspberry Pi B3+ with HiFiBerry DAC.
Situation: Cannot get into “volumio.local” via my various laptop browsers, not by using the ‘volumio.local’ address nor by using my actual IP address. I know the RaspPi is transmitting -I can see it using Fing, and I am able to connect to Volumio.local with my android phone [Essential PH1] interface. It plays music, etc, perfectly. I just can’t get in from the laptop. I was able to connect to volumio.local from the laptop, using Firefox and Chrome, then Chrome stopped working but Firefox still worked as recently as this morning. Now, nada. The browsers time out and give me the useless “ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT” or “volumio.local’s server IP address could not be found” alerts.
Tried so far: I’ve tried a number of things with my laptop system, including re-setting my DNS, Winsock & Network Adaptor Drivers. All my browsers are updated, caches & histories cleared. I’ve tried shutting down my firewall. There is nothing else going on with my browsers, no other sites I can’t visit, and my wifi connection is fine. I suspect this is an issue with the browsers and some sort of internet security protocols rejecting whatever Volumio uses to set up the volumio.local connection? We know that Chrome blocks Flash, is that what’s happening here?
UPDATE (March7 ]: I’ve tried setting Windows Defender to “accept volumio.local” = zero success.
Suggestions for steps I can try much appreciated. Just fyi: I’m pretty new to RaspberryPi/Volumio world, and not a programer, so will likely ask more dumb questions. Don’t think I can send a log, b/c can’t actually connect, but if there’s a way, tell me how & I will.
Thanks in advance!
