I'm aware there are many, many questions and blogs on this topic, but after several days of looking and asking friends I can't find an answer.
My Raspberry Pi Zero W has two wireless interfaces: wlan0 and wlan1.
I want wlan0 to be an AP and wlan1 to connect to an AP.
So I need wlan0 to have a static IP and wlan1 to get one from DHCP over wireless.
If I set a static IP for wlan0 in
dhcpcd.conf, dhcpcd still calls
wpa_supplicant and so even with a static IP it joins the AP - which causes conflicts when trying to run
If I set a static IP for wlan0 via
dhcpcd fails because it detected the interface being configured in
interfaces - eventhough I'd added
denyinterface wlan0 to the
I know that
wpa_supplicant has a command-line parameter for
interface, but I haven't been able to find a way of limiting which interfaces get passed from the dhcpcd hook.
The question is: what configuration should I use in
dhcpcd.conf (or elsewhere?) so I can get a static IP address on wlan0 and not have it connect to an AP AND get an IP address via DHCP on wlan1 and have it connect to an AP? phew
I've tried using
systemctl start firstname.lastname@example.org to have a per-interface config, but there is no
dhcpcd@.service file, only
I've added a system unit file (if that's the right word?) for
[Unit] Description=dhcpcd on %I Wants=network.target Before=network.target [Service] Type=forking PIDFile=/var/run/dhcpcd-%I.pid ExecStart=/sbin/dhcpcd --config /etc/dhcpcd-%I.conf -A -q -w %I ExecStop=/sbin/dhcpcd -k %I [Install] Aliasemail@example.com
This means I can successfully apply an interface-specific config into which I put a static IP address configuration and
This correctly doesn't call
wpa_supplicant, but doesn't seem to set the IP address either. No errors on run and I can see it's loading the correct conf file, but
ip addr shows no IP address on the interface.
