Hello,

What is the way to set the dhcp lease time for the hotspot ? because it seems that the hotspot dhcp settings is not in the webUI config and in uci I don't see the dhcp.HOTSPOT.leasetime option

thank you,

Brice

Hi,

You should be able to change lease time by changing hotspot configuration file:

https://coova.github.io/CoovaChilli/chilli.conf(5).html

To edit the file use either WinSCP app or use vi command to do so.

What you need to add exactly is lease X (X is in seconds) in the config and restart the service using /etc/init.d/chilli restart command.

vi command instructions could be found here:
