How To Make Cat-5 as primary connection, WiFi secondary?

I have OctoPi running on a Raspberry Pi 4 which offers both Cat-5 and WiFi connection. I would like to configure it so that octopi.local uses Cat-5 if available and falls back to WiFi if, for some reason, Cat-5 is not available. I can access either connection using an IP address but would prefer to use octopi.local if I can make this work.

OctoPi is working perfectly. My only concern/desire is to make octopi.local use my preferred network interface.


What did you already try to solve it?

I've looked at /etc/hosts, /etc/hostname, /boot/octopi-wpa-supplicant.txt, and a few other network related files. I've not seen where octopi.local is tied to any specific interface (ie: eth0 or wlan0). I have made no changes to anything yet.

Have you tried running in safe mode?

No, I don't know what this is. I'm accessing OctoPi from a Mac. I've heard of safe mode in Windows.

Did running in safe mode solve the problem?

You can download this in OctoPrint's System Information dialog ... no bundle, no support!)
