Hello, the Pi or the Max2Play web interface can be addressed in the network in two ways, IP address or hostname.

Default is the hostname „max2play“ and the web interface can be addressed in the browser via „max2play/“. If the hostname is renamed in the Max2Play web interface, it is important to ensure that no special characters or spaces are included. Assuming the hostname „home“ was assigned instead of „max2play“, you can access the web interface via „home/“

If access is to be via IP address, it is also good to know how IP addresses are assigned in the network (either manually or via DHCP). It is a good practice not to use a mix of manual and automatic assignment of IP addresses via DHCP in a network.

In the Pi you can find out your own IP via „ifconfig“. You can also use „hostname -I“ to get your IP address. Only with „hostname“ you get the name mentioned above. This is a good way to check if the hostname you wanted to assign is the hostname that was actually assigned (keyword: special characters).

If you are on the Pi, you can also access the Max2play interface in addition to the two options above, you can also try to access the web interface via IP 127.0.0.1 or via localhost/ in the browser.

You will probably need to install a web browser for this. I use the browser dillo, which can be installed via „sudo apt-get install dillo“.
