I have a Pi that runs hostapd and dhcpd on arch linux to create it's own land with the Pi's (routers) IP being
10.0.0.1. This uses the wlan0 interface and it only serves as a standalone router running a web server.
Once I connect to the Pi, I use
10.0.0.1 to display the web pages, but I want to use a hostname such as
firepi. I have tried using dnsmasq, but I haven't been successful. Any help would be greatly appreciated especially if you can give me some detailed examples as I am a novice.
The purpose of this system is that I have created a web app that you can use to ignite fireworks over WiFi at a safe distance. I would just like the convenience of using a hostname instead of the IP address.
