Weird. can't access IP address but can access octopi.local

**My camera stopped working as well as my access in pidroid. I tried to log into the webrowser at the IP address and it timed out. I tried octopi.local and was able to get in just fine. I checked my router and the IP address is still the same. I have no clue what happened. I did recently install octolapse and this happened during a restart. **

I see the opposite happening with people but nothing on what I am experiencing.
