Unable to access rs.local

Hi there.

A friend was kind enough to lend me his RS1 to do some basic tests with it.

Now I connected it with my modem via ethernet and plugged in the power cable. But unfortunately I cant seem to reach either of these through safari or chrome: http://rs.local or http://raspberryshake.local:5000

It says: IP Address not found and „DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN“.

Do you know about this problem and can you suggest me a way to solve it?

Thanks - Claudio

Hi Claudio,

It can be possible that your friend setup the pi with an fixed ip-address that´s not working in your network.

Can you reach the pi on its Ip-address? So instead of using http://rs.local use (as an example, use the ipadress of the pi)

So the first thing I would check is to verify if the Pi has an ipadres that ´fits´ to your network:
You need local access to the Pi (monitor, keyboard etc.) and login with user account myshake.
Verify what the ip-address is of the device with the command ´ifconfig eth0´.

In the output of that command you´ll see somewhere ´link encap: Ethernet´ (this confirms that you have a wired connection). Below that line you will see inet:XXX.YYY.ZZZ.AAA - this is the ipaddress of the pi.
This should be in the range of your network (eg. 10.10.10.x or 192.168.x.x). The range of your network can be found in your router or dhcp server.

If the Pi has an fixed ip not in your own network range the easiest way is to setup the pi with a dhcp ipadress, let me know if you need help with that.



Hi Claudio,

If your raspberryshake connect in network and wifi use dhcp address. Perhaps, you can try using fing applications on mobile phone. (https://manual.raspberryshake.org/fing.html)

Good Luck,
