I created a home assistant instance on a virtual box about a year ago. I hooked up to a couple of devices and controlled them by climbing into home assistant via actual-ip-address:8123. Great!
Skip forward a year, and I am ready to really begin implementing home assistant in our new addition. Problem is I have forgotten the password I created for crawling in over a web browser.
In an attempt to recover I have installed a new instance of virtualbox and homeassistant on a new windows10 box. VirtualBox 6.1.22 and HomeAssistant hassos_ova_5.13.vmdk.
When I start HA I can see my dhcp server assigning an IP address, and what that actual IP address is. However, when I try to connect to HA (pointing web browser at actual-ip-address:8123/ I get the following:
10.1.10.204 refused to connect.
- Checking the connection
- Checking the proxy and the firewall
I expect this is something stupid I am doing… can anyone offer up any ideas on what it is? Some sort of firewall thing?
