  • VB 2.3 reinstall, same hardware and hence IP address. Win 10 PC cant see it

    I just installed a copy of 2.3 on a 1TB SSD as I feared that one day my 5 year old WD 3TB drive would fail and I would be music less for some time!. I used the original hardware so no changes there.

    Putty on Win 10 PC accesses the VB just fine, and SCP too. The hardware is the same hence the IP address is the same on the new SSD based VB as on the old (I have the disc still working so I know this is true). Both old and new hard drives use the default root name and password. When the old hard drive is installed I can see the Vortexbox in file explorer and typing the IP address brings up the VB home page on the VB box (showing LMS etc). So why wont the new SSD based drive be available on the network. Is there some step(s) that I should have taken but did not?

    I cant get VB 2.4 to work on my hardware - tried again today and many times in the past and its a NOGO - so thats not an option.

    Any thoughts??
