OPi PC DHCP don't work

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

 

This is my first post on Armbian forum so just want to say that I appreciate your work on Armbian. It's great! :)

 

Couple days ago I've downloaded latest release of Armbian - Armbian_5.65_Orangepipc_Debian_stretch_next_4.14.78.7z

 

After successful start on OPi PC board I have installed minimal desktop. 

 

I've created Wi-Fi network (using network manager) so my OPi PC board can act like a Access Point, and this works fine. Wi-Fi network is visible on other devices and they can connect to it.

 

The problem is that there is no DHCP server working on OPi. This mean that any of devices which connects to the OPi's network can't obtain it's IP.

 

Before new Armbian release I used legacy Armbian based on 3.something kernel on which it worked flawlessly.

 

Could you give me a hint on this?

Check what is dnsmasq service telling you

service dnsmasq status

and what is the content of /etc/dnsmasq.conf

 

I tried to recreate, made few restarts and AP is working fine, clients gets IP.

Ok, I've checked it. It looks like I don't have dnsmasq service installed. Command "root@orangepipc:/home/user# service dnsmasq status

 

Unit dnsmasq.service could not be found.
service dnsmasq status" returns

Should network manager automatically modify dnsmasq.conf ?

 

I overlooked and I though you have used our tool to make AP:
 

 

For the way you want to make it, I never tried and I think you should look into the manual if exists. It's a generic problem unrelated to Armbian.

What do you mean by this?

 

Do you mean I have used this tool to make my current hot spot or I should use this tool to make a hot spot?
