This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://blokas.io/patchbox-os/docs/first-run-options/
Suggestion to simplify the first time setup for new users:
Every time the documentation says we can connect to
ssh by entering the IP address, which we have to follow a guide in order to find it, the documentation could instead simply say to connect to
patchbox.local. For example:
This works with most recent devices, phones, MacOS, linux. On Windows, it often work but if not, then yeah, they have to either rely on the IP address or install something like Bonjour.
So the documentation could suggest to try using
patchbox.local first, and if it doesn’t work, then yeah, to use the IP address.
