We are testing Teltonika in our company and have a question::

Is thera anyway to add a hostname in the router så it points to an ipaddress? This is for our network equipment so they can find a way out to our monitoring system...

We currantly run Cradlepoint routers but are considering a change... In cradlepoint the config for this setting is under dns->"edit or add known Host"..

We simply add hostname, select ip version (IPv4) and enter the external ip address for the destination..

Best Regards

it is possible, but you need to add it over SSH or CLI.

Try to edit /etc/config/dhcp file and add these lines in the end:

config domain
    option name 'hostname'
    option ip ''

Save file and reboot router.

For local purposes you can change the hostname in the System → Administration → General page. (Second field from the top).

For remote access you would need to use a third-party DDNS service. For extra info you can refer to these configuration examples or the DDNS manual page.
