Can't access my Omega Onion2+ over Wifi after running oupgrade (again)

  • @Yvan-Gagnon
    Ok, I misunderstood your problem then.
    Are you using the IP assigned to your O2+ by your home router when trying to connect to it? What is the IP you are using, perhaps there is a clash?

  • yes, cas is right concerning IP. generally, your router will assign an IP to the onion that fits within it's network. so if you are connected to the router you need to use the IP assigned to the onion by the router. you should be able to access a network map of the router by browsing to or something similar established by the router. the map will give you the IP address assigned by the router. use that IP when connected to router and the onion IP when connected to the onion. at least that is how i handle it and it has worked for me. good luck.

  • Hmmm .. but that wouldn't explain why i was able to access the Onion using the hostname prior to upgrading .. and why I am now no longer able to access it using the hostname after the upgrade.

  • Ok -- I get it now. There are 2 different IP address that I can access the onion through .. the default "" one (which only works when I'm connected to the Onion's Wifi hotspot) .. and the router assigned IP address .. which I just verified allows me to access the Onion when I'm connected to my home's Wifi connection.

    Also -- interestingly -- it appears that I am able to connect to the Onion via SSH using the hostname using my iPhone .. which hints that the issue is likely specific to my local PC. Anyone have any idea as to how I might resolve this issue?

  • @Yvan-Gagnon i thought bonjour was supposed to resolve that on the pc. you could check that you have no firewall on pc or router blocking udp port 5353. bonjour install is supposed to handle windows firewall setup but some routers block all udp ports by default. check the router firewall via admin page via browser.

  • I thought so too. I know it's definitely not the router that's blocking the port .. since my iPhone seems to be able to access the Onion using the hostname. So how would I check to see if my Windows 10 PC is blocking udp port 5353 ?

  • @Yvan-Gagnon visit the firewall settings. i get there via control panel/windows defender firewall/advanced settings then just look around.

  • I've checked my Windows Defender Firewall settings and see 6 different entries for UDP connections on port 5353 .. and all 5 of them have a green checkmark beside them (which I assume means that the port is open). Two of those ports are "mDNS (UDP-In)" .. one which is marked "Domain, Public" .. and the other "Private".

    I have no idea what any of this means ... or if it lends any clues pertaining to the issue I'm having.

  • @Yvan-Gagnon If you have Windows 10 x64 try to install 'Bonjour64.msi' - a part of the 'iTunes64Setup.exe' installer.

  • I just did as you suggested (unpacked and installed Bonjour64.msi) .. and the local hostname for the Onion still isn't resolving.
