Unable to connect to Home Assistant with Pi 2 Model B

I’ve just decided to try HA out on an old Pi 2 Model B, I’ve set it all up, installed onto the SD card, plugged ethernet into my router on http://homeassistant.local:8123 and I’ve also tried IP address log in from the Pi but it won’t connect. Is there anything I can try to troubleshoot? Will my model of Pi not work any more? I don’t really know where to start. Thanks in advance, Ben

Have you tried http://<ip-address>:8123 ?

What is http://:8123 - just the port number?

Sorry, check my post again, I had to edit it and write it as code for the middle part to show.

Yes I’ve tried that

Should work, but initial setup takes a long time.

Plug in a monitor and take a look (a keyboard would be handy too)

How long are we talking?
