• Issue of the topic:
My browser displays: “This site cannot be reached” when I enter DNS name, IP address, or the openHAB dashboard.
I used and old linksys router, disabled the wireless, and connected the pc and Ras to the router. I saw both devices in the router clients table found and one was named openhab. I used this IP and i was able to ping the ip address but cannot connect to it via browser.

Let’s assume everything is installed correctly…did you try to reach it by IP and not DNS name ?
It’s not so automatic that the router can resolve the host name.
So try to put in the browser http://YOUR IP:8080
Can you ssh into the Pi or have a monitor, keyboard and mouse attached?
Browse to /var/log/openhab2 or userdata/log and check openhab.log for clues to if OpenHAB is starting or not. Also sometimes it takes my Pi a few minutes to open the dashboard in the browser and that is the message I get until then, first time might take a few minutes. As Alessio said, use the ip address of the Pi
I entered 192.168.1.100:8080 into putty IP address and kept default port set at 22, tried same IP and set port to 8080 also and the result was failure to connect.
Connected my display and keyboard to the Raspberry and got a blank screen when I hit enter and cycled Rasp power.
Was successful at SSH into the pi using 192.168.1.100 and default channel and this was the result:
login as: openhabian email@example.com’s password:

Is this helpful?
What do I do from here?
Just to review my ethernet setup. Browser is Crome, connected to both ethernet and wifi. I tried dropping Wifi but made no difference.
now that you were able to openssh you need to review the logs typically at ```
sudo sh -c “echo ‘deb http://phoscon.de/apt/deconz
$(lsb_release -cs) main’ >
/var/log/openhab2. In that directory you should see a log file if openhab2 is running.
you can also execute the command sudo systemctl status openhab2.
Seems like your installation hasn´t finished yet…
I´m just installing openhabian onto an Rpi4 myself, using SD card. Atm it has taken 20 minutes, and still not ready, (but its close now… I have a monitor connected to my Rpi4 so I can tell what happens).
I could ssh after aprox 5 minutes of the installing, and then I have the same result as you did get. Thats why I assume your installation isnt finished yet.
EDIT - Installation done. Took 40 minutes (yikes!!!)… openhab is available at http://IP:8080
(I never use the DNS name, as I´m used to IP adresse… they tend to work ).
Ahmmm… Thats hopefully not true??? I have been struggling for quite a few days with my test setup… I just dumped my setup on my SSD drive and is installing yet a fresh image copy on a SD.
And now you tell me, this may be a known issue for the openhabian image
If there are issues with the image, it should NOT be available, in my opinion.
