Our home router is terrible at remembering configured static IPs, I'd like to use my RasPi instead. Is there anything particular I need to consider when setting it up?
On your Raspberry Pi, all you would need to do is install the
sudo pacman -S dhcp
apt-get install isc-dhcp-server
You then edit the configuration file at
/etc/conf.d/dhcp which tells the dhcp server which interface on which to listen with this line:
You then start the server daemon with:
sudo /etc/rc.d/dhcp4 start
Now any clients that broadcast for an IP connected to
eth0 will be managed by the dhcp server.
