I am trying to get a direct USB-LAN connection from an Android Smartphone to Volumio (Pi3), but I can’t get it to work.
Through a router with static IP -> working
direct connection between a PC and Volumio (with both static IP) -> working
I assume that I need a static IP on the Android smartphone. I tried this in shell with some IP commands
IP addr add 192.168.178.111 dev eth0, ifconfig eth0 192.168.178.100, ifconfig eth0 netmask 255.255.255.0
But it doesn’t work for me and I can’t find the static IP of Volumio 192.168.178.124. Also tried with DHCP.
Anybody an idea how to get this working? Is my direction of just establishing a static IP from the Android Smartphone correct to control Volumio with the Web UI?
Thank you for help!
