Snaplink to Omni won't work over LAN. Remote connection OK.

Anyone having issues connecting Snaplink across the LAN?  I have an Omni system with the Snaplink app on an iPhone.  I am able to connect to the Omni using Snaplink when I’m on an external network and coming into my LAN with port forwarding.  However, when I try to connect to the Omni from the LAN (using the controller’s direct IP and port 4369), Snaplink will not connect.  I can connect to the Omni using the Dealer PC Access software on the LAN.  It is very weird and I cannot figure out why Dealer PC Access works locally but Snaplink will not.

I had an issue once trying to use an external address (DNS) inside our home.  My routers security would not allow, but direct IP always worked.  Assume it worked in the past?

I have 2 configurations in Snaplink.  One for the static IP from my ISP that I use when I'm not at home.  The other config uses the local Omni IP address that should work when I'm on my home Wifi, but it doesn't.  
It did work at some point but something changed a few years ago (I'm not sure what).  I didn't pay too much attention because I could always use the external (static IP) config and get to the controller.  It's a long story, but now I need to get the local config working.

Before I let this thread go, I was hoping someone could at least confirm that they are able to get this to work:
Snaplink to an Omni Controller
Using an iPhone over WiFi (local LAN to controller)
Using the Omni's direct IP address (192.168...  probably) and local port number (likely 4369)
Thanks

It works iOS 15.3
The only problem is I usually have to enter the PIN code twice, because the PIN screen appears twice.
