Can I configure the DHCP of pisound to always assign the same address to the tablet/phone that connects? This is in order to send messages back from my app to the tablet without entering the tablet’s ip address each time


Yes, add a line like this to /usr/local/pisound/scripts/pisound-btn/dnsmasq.conf and restart the hotspot:


01:23:45:67:89:ab should be replaced with the MAC address of your tablet/phone.

Use cat /var/lib/misc/dnsmasq.leases to see the connected clients with their MAC addresses. The IP must be in the range [;], as defined by dhcp-range in dnsmasq.conf.
