Raspberry Pi3 To Rio Connectivity Issues

My team is attempting to send network table variables from a Raspberry pi3 to the RoboRio via an Ethernet from the radio to the Pi, but unfortunately we’ve ran into a problem. We cannot successfully send variables/packets to the rio.
When we ping the rio IP (roboRIO-5132-FRC.local), we get no response from the Rio, but we know it recognizes the Rio as a host as it doesn’t return the response “Unknown host”. Does anyone else have this problem and does anyone have a solution?

If you’re using a pi, you should be using static IP addresses. http://wpilib.screenstepslive.com/s/4485/m/24193/l/319135-ip-networking-at-the-event
