I setup my headless Raspberry PI and called it Optimus. I connect my Windows 10 desktop machine to the Raspberry PI via an ethernet cable. If I ping optimus.local I get a response and can SSH into it - no issues.
Based on the above I am sure my Raspberry PI is configured correctly.
However, from my Windows 10 laptop following the same process as above, does not work (can't ping optimus.local and therefore can't SSH). So clearly, there must be a configuration element of sorts on my laptop that needs to be checked / changed in order for this to work as it does on my desktop machine.
Any ideas what I need to look out for on my laptop? Please advise.
