Basically title. Raspberry Pi 3, fresh install of osmc.
When I use DHCP, I can SSH into it on IP xxx.xxx.xxx.102, if I try to set a static IP to the same 102 IP, it suddenly doesnt work. It makes no sense to me. Maybe someone knows what could be the problem?
Quite simple your DHCP server (router) most likely gave the 102 to a different device in the meantime. If you want to a static IP you have to use one from the IP range that is outside of what the DHCP server distribute
I can check on my router, and no, the IP wasn’t given to someone else, I already tried giving the Pi the IP of 150, and I still can’t SSH into it. I can switch between them infinitely, and the static wont work, but the DHCP will.
Sorry, can’t think of anything that would cause what you describe. From OSMC’s point of view there is no difference between a static IP and a DHCP assigned one. I’ve certainly not noticed any issues with static IP’s, and I use ssh all the time.
Well it makes no sense to me either. Furthermore the official iOS remote sometimes works, and sometimes doesn’t. It’s really random if it’s gonna tell me “Connection timeout” or if I can control the osmc. This has made me quite regretting acquiring the raspberry pi.
