I'm trying to set up my pi based server to be a little bit easier to access by using a .local domain. I followed this tutorial: https://www.howtogeek.com/167190/how-and-why-to-assign-the-.local-domain-to-your-raspberry-pi/

Upon installing sudo apt-get install avahi-daemon I was given the message that it already existed, which makes sense.

But when I try to connect at raspberrypi.local, I get a 404.

What should I do to trouble shoot this?

$ sudo avahi-daemon

Daemon already running on PID 416

  • Which OS do you use on your other system, from which you want to connect to raspberrypi.local? Windows before 10 need to have mDNS manually installed, for example, via iTunes. – TheDiveO Aug 7 '17 at 16:55
  • To check whether the daemon is running, use sudo systemctl status -l avahi (or is that avahi-daemon? Try pressing tab to autocomplete the service name). This will show you whether the service is running and what messages it might have produced. – TheDiveO Aug 7 '17 at 16:58
