I’m having the same problem as bunkisland (http://www.dexterindustries.com/topic/unable-to-connect-on-mac/). Specifically, when I tried to ping dex.local I got the following response: “cannot resolve dex.local: Unknown host.” I followed John’s advice on setting a static ip, using the YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7mdXGxBuDI&list=PLGXEJ4Ye1qCMWziVrynnrIPpgfOr-2aj9&index=6.
I pinged the new static ip, and got successful responses. HOWEVER, I then tried connecting via Chrome (and FireFox) to dex.local/ and had no luck. I also tried pinging dex.local and no luck. Did I somehow miss a step? How is my computer supposed to associate the new static ip with dex? Just for kicks, I tried connecting through my browser to the new static ip and that also didn’t work.
My 9-yo son is breathing down my back, so any help would be appreciated!
