Consider also trying http://desktop-sqc7tb0:8088/. Many upstream DHCP/DNS/router combo devices will inject such local device names into their local DNS, enabling a local "dynamic DNS" functionality that will allow you to not worry about changing IP addresses.

Dear Friends!

I made an attempt. Unfortunately, Ignition App reported Host invalid.
