Can't access homeassistant using local internal dns name response empty

Hi everybody,

I am struggling with my HA setup. I can access via homeassistant.local:8123 also IP address works My local dns server resolves to brower shows empty response (confirmed by chrom developer tools, request is sent to HA, empty response). Why do I want to make this work with DNS name? Plan to use https, certificate SAN needs to match the name in the URI to get rid of browser chucking a wobbly on cert validation.

Poked around with some config settings external_url: & internal_url: as well as base_url: so far no joy :frowning_face:

google and forum search did not return any solution

hope somebody has an idea, thanks in adv.


pls. ignore browser issue, sorry
