Amahi has a daemon that helps configure the network settings. It's called hdactl.
This network daemon can de customized by advanced users. Configuring things improperly can yield an invalid configuration and a broken DNS, DHCP or network subsystem.
The following settings can be customized by creating
- DEVICE: set it to eth1 to make services attach to eth1 (default: eth0)
- NETMASK_SIZE: number of bits in the netmask (default: 24 ... i.e. 255.255.255.0)
- NET_START: what's the start of your network, passed into the acl trusted group (defaults to 0)
- DYN_LO: low end of the dynamically allocated DHCP range (defaults to 100)
- DYN_HI: high end of the dynamically allocated DHCP range (defaults to 254)
The syntax for
/etc/hdactl.conf is a sequence of lines with
For example, to change the dynamic IP range:
After settings are changed, the service has to be stopped completely and started:
service hdactl stop service hdactl start
for the setting to be picked up. Merely restarting or reloading the service will not do it.
