Ropieee.local no longer functional

I use ropieee with an Allo USBridge Signature and an Allo Digione Signature. After updating to Ropieee version 4.002, I can no longer access these devices using ropieee.local on my pc.
Roon can still find these devices and plays music through them with no issue. Through Roon, I can also see the IP addresses of these units and can access their setup pages by copying the IP addresses into my browser, though this is a bit cumbersome.
Any suggestions on how I can regain the ropieee.local functionality?

Did you change the name of the device from ropieee to something different? If so use that.

Can you try without “.local”?

Yes! That was the solution I needed. Many thanks!
