Finding your server's local IP

On an installation at home, your server should typically be accessible using the yunohost.local domain. If for any reason this does not work, you may need to find the local IP of your server.

What is a local IP ?

The local IP is the address used to refer to your server inside the local network (typically your home) where multiple devices are connected to a router (your internet box). The local IP typically looks like 192.168.x.y (or sometimes 10.0.x.y or 172.16.x.y)

How to find it ?

Any of these tricks should allow you to find the local IP of your server:

You can use the AngryIP software to achieve that. You just need to scan these local ip ranges in this order until you find the active IP corresponding to your server:

  • 192.168.0.0 -> 192.168.0.255
  • 192.168.1.0 -> 192.168.1.255
  • 192.168.2.0 -> 192.168.255.255
  • 10.0.0.0 -> 10.0.255.255
  • 172.16.0.0 -> 172.31.255.255

Tips:

  • you can order by ping like on this screenshot to easily see effectively-used IP.
  • your server should typically be displayed as listening on port 80 and 443
  • in case of doubt, just type https://192.168.x.y in your browser to check if it's a Yunohost or not.

I still can't find my local IP

If you are unable to find your server using any of the previous tricks, maybe your server did not boot correctly:

  • Make sure that your server is properly plugged in;
  • If you're using an SD card, make sure the connector is not too dusty;
  • Plug a screen on your server and try to reboot to check that it's properly booting;
  • Make sure that your ethernet cable is working and properly plugged in;
