For a test setup I would like to configure a static IP address (I am using the full Chirpstack OS in Rpi4). I found a few threads on this forum but unfortunately I have not been able to set a workable static IP.
In the folder
/etc/network I modified the
interfaces file with a static IP (see below).
iface eth0 inet static
Also changing the network and gateway to the same subnet does (after a reboot) not result in the static IP address as configured.
Any ideas or suggestions?
So if it does not work thru the /etc/network/interfaces file I could imagine adding it to a list of commands executed at startup (as workaround)
Command to add:
ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.103
Where can I configure / add this in the Chirpstack OS?
don’t forget to flush your RPI4 dynamic IP assigned by your GW(ROUTER), between the reipl for your RPI4
Thanks. However I am using the full Chirpstack OS and the assignment of IP addresses is handled differently afaik.
Such a trivial topic taking so much time and becomes frustrating
Please look into connmanctl, that might help you
Thanks Orne. Will have a look at it
My 2 cents of experience below
Set static IP settings in Chirpstack full OS
- sudo su
- cd /var/lib/connman
- cd ethernet_dca632817e1c_cable (in my case)
- cat settings (displays the current settings)
Change IP address to static (example)
connmanctl config <service> --ipv4 manual <ip address> <netmask> <gateway>
connmanctl config ethernet_dca632817e1c_cable --ipv4 manual 192.168.178.37 255.255.255.0 192.168.178.1
- Changes immediately / if connected thru SSH the link will be broken directly and you have to ssh to new IP@
- Do not change the settingsfile manually (changes effected the OS directly)
Good connman overview: https://variwiki.com/index.php?title=Static_IP_Address#Configuring_Static_IP
(also describes when you would like to use the /etc/network/interfaces instead of connman)
Would you like to create a PR to add this do the documentation (e.g. a new page under the “use” section)? https://github.com/brocaar/chirpstack-docs
Sure …good idea. Are you asking me todo this?
Yes, if you would like to, that would be appreciated
WIll pick it up during xmas holiday period
