I have installed umbrel on my raspberry pi 4 and am running it as a bitcoin node. For a couple of months, I had no issues with connecting to it through my browser but for the past couple of weeks I have been unable to connect to umbrel from the browser. I am able to ssh and also ping the IP address but for some reason I can’t access the GUI from my browser. Has there been an umbrel update recenty. I can’t tell because I have my umbrel with auto updates ON. I;m guessing it might be the latest umbrel update becuase it was working totally fine.
I have tried the following:
Restarted my raspberry pi multiple times. Once restarted, I can access through browser for like 10-15 mins but then when I try to access it again, no more GUI access but able to ping and ssh.
Unplug the ethernet connection and plug back in. No luck here.
unfortunately if your router assigns a dynamic IP to your umbrel, the hostname ‘umbrel.local’ may stop working. instead you will need to use the IP address directly- you can find this using https://angryip.org/, ie i can also login via http://192.168.86.77/ on my browser
also i find the easiest way to be able to use umbrel.local again, and access your umbrel outside of home, is to use tailscale from the app-store.
i dont understand how installing tailscale would help.
If you are asking if I’ve tried Tailscal before for remote access, then yes.
I could try to do install tailscale again and test but now Im not even able to access my umbrel after restart.
