How to create a DHCP reservation

DHCP is managed in the Gateway Control Console.

  1. Log into the Gateway Control Console,
  2. Select Config and then Networking on the left hand side
  3. Select DHCP server from the top of the Networking page.

If you want to give a static IP address to a device which already has a DHCP lease, simply find the DHCP entry and click the + next to the DHCP lease in the Add Static column.

Click Apply, and then OK at the bottom of the page

 

**********************************************************

If you want to create a DHCP entry for a device which doesn’t have a current DHCP lease, you need to enter in the Mac address, IP address and Description in the Static DHCP Entries table.

Click on the Add button, and then enter in the Mac address, IP address and Description.

 

Click Apply, and then OK at the bottom of the page

 

**********************************************************

If you want to create a DHCP exclusion (so no devices can get a DHCP lease for a specific IP address), simply do the above but enter the MAC address as a random string of numbers in the correct format. E.G. 00:11:22:33:44:66
