How to Set Static IPs on an EdgeMAX RouterPublished 2021-10-7
I have a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter X (V2) and one of the things I do frequently - but not frequently enough to keep in working memory - is give a device a static IP address.
Typically I do this so that I can get remote access to my computer or phone (or my wife's computer or iPhone) via ssh or with Bound or AirDroid, etc.
(I tend to use a scheme of birth year as IP for the computers - or prefix with a 1 for phones (ex: 86, 186)
It's pretty easy, but... also easy to forget. So, just so I don't have to think next time:
- Login at https://192.168.1.1/
- DHCP Server
- Actions ➡️ Leases
- Copy the MAC address from the table
- Configure Static Map
- Give it a name and a birth-year-ip
That is all.
