Ropieee Not Showing The Web UI

Thanks Harry will do this weekend

having the same problem here. Just configured RopieeeXL and everything worked great and was working in Roon no problem. Now I need to setup WiFi and http://ropieeexl.local doesn’t work. Tried directly to the IPN as well, same error. What are my options to just configure WiFi so I don’t have to have it connected to Ethernet? Thanks

Well, the only option is a working web interface.

So you never had access to the web interface at all? Have you tried connecting to http://ropieeexl/

In stead of .local address? And the IP address?


What about SSH or connecting the 7" Pi display directly to the Pi? Can I configure WiFi that way?
No I’ve never had web interface connection to Popieee. I did try the IP address and got the same failure.
I didn’t try http://ropieeexl/ but can when I get home. Thanks

Sorry meant Ropieee. :slight_smile:

No, the 7 inch display is not going to help out here. All configuration stuff needs to happen from the web interface.

Have you tried a re-flash?

No because everything worked great. Recognized and configured Hifiberry DAC and showed up in Roon and played correctly. I can try to flash another SD and try again.

http://ropieeexl/ worked! Thanks
Now when trying to configure WiFi, I check the box and it takes me to the page where I save but I can’t enter anything in the Network and Passphrase boxes.

That’s correct.

It takes 2 steps: first enable and save it. Then go back to the network tab and you can select network and enter passphrase.

I saved and then it took me to screen to input the info. Selected the 1 of 3 networks that showed up the on one network I have and now i won’t connected. Guessing now I have to reflash the card to remove the settings for WiFi so I can connect again to try this all over.

No idea why 3 showed up. After I accepted that, a little window popped up which showed like keystrokes for the Network instead of just what I typed. Very confusing.

No. As long as you have your cable pluggen in uou can reach the unit and reconfigure it.

Cable meaning ethernet? Doesn’t seem to be the case. I’ll try rebooting again

Yes ethernet. Connect to ropieee.local

Can’t connect with xl or regular site or .local versions of either. Still showing in Roon and working though

You can always use Fing on your mobile device to search your network for the IP address and use that to access the web interface.

Finally success. Uplugged 2 of my mesh routers, used the IP address and I was finally able to get back in and set the wireless which now works. No idea what was going on. Thanks so much for your help!

Not sure if this has already been pointed out… It took me awhile to figure it out.

I’ve got two Orchard Audio PecanPi Streamers running Ropieee. Using http://ropieee.local/ won’t work if you change the Hostname in the Ropieee web UI the first time. So I changed the name of each (BedrmRopieee and LivingRmRopieee) and then I can access each via the given Hostname (e.g. http://BedrmRopieee) or via their IP addresses.
