Static IP
« on: November 02, 2017, 09:51:34 am »
Long story short: I'm back after a few years, due to a RetroPie build.

For SSH purpose, is there a way to set up static IP?
I've tried editing /etc/network/interfaces, but it is a RO rootFS.

Maybe update GCWConnect to configure static IP?

I'm assuming you're referring to Wifi. Until it gets static IP setting, I think an alternative solution is to configure your router's DHCP server to assign a static IP for your GCW0's wifi MAC address. You can get it by ssh'ing or telnetting in, connected via USB or wifi dynamic IP, and running 'ifconfig' and looking at the entry for the 'wlp3s0' interface. You're looking for the hex bytes after 'HWaddr'.

Hopefully, your router supports this.

I have the Wireless Net Watcher program on my Windows machine to find MACs and IPs to everything connected in the network, but thanks.
Still, we should be given an option to set IP addresses. There is not one way to have a static IP stick upon reboot, unless I edit /etc/network/interfaces.
Maybe have a file in user-land that allows us to config the IPs?

I'd actually like this feaure myself. I spent some time a year or two ago working on mundane GCW Connect UI stuff, fixing the goofy fonts and speed .. maybe I can wedge this in too.  I am not a python coder, and did not create original app.
