I am brand new out of the box to the Home Assistant world, and I am excited to get going with it. However, I am running into issues accessing the Web Interface on my first install. I’ve tried both a Raspberry Pi 4 and a virtual machine on Ubuntu; I am confident I followed the HA instructions to the letter on both installs. The Home Assistant network shows up on my router, and I can see the Home Assistant IP address, but whenever I try to go to homeassistant.local:8123, homeassistant:8123, or the IPaddress:8123, it says that it refused to connect.
The mobile app also has issues; it just continuously scans for the HA network. I’m thinking that it may be an issue with my internet, but I don’t even know where to start troubleshooting that. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated. I am a noob when it comes to programming and these things, but I am willing to learn. And if I am in the wrong category of the forum, just let me know and I can post it elsewhere. Thank you!
