I have four devices:
- Windows 10 PC
- Android Phone (v6.0.1)
- Internet Router
- "servername" (Raspberry Pi 4)
All are connected locally using Wifi (not that it should matter) using the simplest possible configuration imaginable. Every device has working internet access. Everything talks with everything else nicely apart from when I try to use Termius on Android to ssh into "servername".
On the PC I can simply issue the command
putty fred@servername and I can login without difficulties, as one would expect.
However Termius on the Android phone does not seem to understand that "servername" is attached locally to the same wifi network as the phone itself. If I open a local SSH session on the phone itself and ping "servername", then it appears to be going after some random internet IP address (
92.xxx.xxx.xxx) and fails to login.
If I use the server's local IP address (
192.168.xxx.xxx) then Termius can SSH to it with no issues.
So, how can I persuade Termius (free version) to understand local network host names? I cannot find any settings that correspond to this problem.
