Armbian HotSpot, reserve an IP address of a device

Recommended Posts

Hello.

I created a HotSpot with my Orange Pi Zero H2 with the latest version of Armbian Bionic.
Everything seems to work, but I need the access point to reserve dynamic IPs, ie for a device with MAC address XX.XX.XX.XX.XX I have to reserve and then assign a specific IP address XXX.XXX. XXX.XXX.
Any idea how to configure this HotSpot?
Do I have to add some commands to the hostapd.conf file or what?

Thanks in advance for any help.

IP for clients are dynamic by default. It's a job from dnsmasq (/etc/dnsmasq). This is not really an Armbian problem, so you have to look into manual pages from dnsmasq how to set that up.
