DHCP Server & Linux Hotspot
Install stuff:
sudo apt install isc-dhcp-server hostapd -y
sudo systemctl enable isc-dhcp-server
sudo systemctl unmask hostapd
sudo systemctl enable hostapd
Configure DHCP:
/etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf
option domain-name "local";
option domain-name-servers 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4;
default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;
subnet 192.168.200.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
range 192.168.200.2 192.168.200.20;
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
option broadcast-address 192.168.200.255;
}
Configure hotspot:
/etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
interface=wlan0
driver=nl80211
ssid=LinuxHotspot
hw_mode=g
channel=11
macaddr_acl=0
ignore_broadcast_ssid=0
auth_algs=1
wpa=2
wpa_passphrase=Passw0rd!
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_pairwise=CCMP
wpa_group_rekey=86400
ieee80211n=1
wme_enabled=1
Configure interface (+ set the iface name in /etc/default/isc-dhcp-server):
/etc/network/interfaces
iface wlan0 inet static
address 192.168.200.1
netmask 255.255.255.0
Set static IP on the interface:
sudo ifconfig wlan0 down
sudo ifconfig wlan0 192.168.200.1
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
Restart the services:
$ sudo service isc-dhcp-server restart
$ sudo service hostapd restart
