Connecting runeaudio to laptop via ethernet cable (Solved)

Postby irishwill2008 » 11 May 2018, 10:36

Hey guys,

Im wondering if someone can help me out with this.

I looked all over and followed numerous tutorials but got nowhere!

Right! I want to be able to access the ssh or GUI (Web control panel) without internet access but just my laptop (no wifi etc) and RPI.

What i did (Windows 7 OS on laptop),
I connected the ethernet into my laptop and into the pi, i then went and shared it. I firstly went and made my ethernet to assign ips automatically in which i then did a CMD: ipconfig /all in which it displayed the ethernet ip. I tried typing the IP into browser but could not connect. I then tried typing the hostname in (http://runeaudio.local) but also refused. I then tried assigning Static IPs Via control panel for the ethernet adapter (only on windows pc) and tried going in on lets say "192.168.1.99" but no luck, tried again with hostname and no luck!

What i did have luck with was, if i set a static IP on the RPI & on the pc with same range.. I can then connect!

Thing is, i want the raspberry pi to be on DHCP and the PC. So all i need to do is plug ethernet in and connect via hostname using "runeaudio.local" and away it should connect! I cant seem to do this with the current setup?

Am i missing something or doing something in correct?

Perhaps somethings disabled on the pi side which is blocking this?

Let me know thanks!

P.s, again... I want to be able to connect when both parties (RPI & PC) are both set on DHCP - no ips set. In which i can at ease, plug my ethernet cable into the laptop/PC & into the RPI and then from the PC/laptop, i can then go to my browser and type: http://runeaudio.local and it should connect! Same goes with SSH etc.

Any ideas? Much appreciated.

Regards,

Will.

Hi Will,

for this to work you need a DHCP server running on your network (see here).

On small home networks, this server runs on your router.

The best way to get this working is to use dnsmasq on your RP.
