Volumio is not accesible by volumio.local on linux

Hello! I know that there were a lot of threads like this, but using info from them did not very help me. I can’t access volumio using volumio.local but it accessible by ip address. I am not very familiar with networking basics and how volumio works so any help in troubleshooting this problem will be great.
My system is manjaro linux. Raspberry pi 4 with volumio connected to wireless network.

Volumio Information

Volumio Version: 2.853
Hardware: rapberry pi 4
DAC: no dac

You could try lookup what domain name has been mapped to your device using dig (or drill on arch?)

dig -x <ip address of the pi>

Thank you! Now I know more about arch. But using drill I can’t find domain name attached to this ip

➜  ~ drill -x

Well, basically there is your answer - your machine doesn’t know how to resolve volumio.local to 192.168.xx.xx.
Try and check out if you router knows the device by it’s hostname to figure out if your issue is your local machine, or something network wide.

PS: For good-luck, you could always try rebooting the pi once before diving down this hole… :wink:

Thank you for your help. Will be trying to resolve this issue!

Ok, what helped me is
