How do I run 2 nodes on the same network? Please Help!

I am currently running a node and my son wants to run one at home as well, but they both are set to umbrel.local. What do I do to be able to run both nodes at the same time on the same network?

You have to set a fixed IP for each machine.
See How to set a static IP for your Umbrel machine
Option configuring dhcpcd.conf is easy.
Then to run the Umbrel dashboard just type IP (like 192.168.x.x)

I use “Umbrel.local” for my primary node and “Umbrel-2.local” for my second node.

I hope this works for you too.
