Description

We should have the hda-change-gw script as part of the network settings in the dashboard. That way users could change the 3rd octet of the IP address via the GUI instead of running a script command line. It would be added right before/after Gateway in network settings. The less command line needed, the better.

I hope we can eliminate many of the scripts run command line and incorporate those features in the HDA dashboard. This will help those who are command line challenged and make Amahi more appealing to beginners.

this is already implemented in the network settings http://hda/tab/network/settings

it may be that advanced settings needs to be enabled to get this showing.

close if you agree, if not, explain more.
agreed on eliminating commonly used commands.

The dashboard only allows you to change the router IP address (4th digit). However, hd-change-gw allows you to change the 3rd digit, often set as 0 or 1 for many routers.

See the wiki article at https://wiki.amahi.org/index.php/Change_IP_Address.

So for example, the router IP address is set to 192.168.0.1. But you realize after installing Amahi, it should have been 192.168.1.1. The only way to change that with the router and clients (Fixed IP) is using hda-change-gw via command line.

If you wanted to change just the 4th digit of the IP address, that could be done via the Dashboard. For example if you wanted to change 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.2. It's the 3rd digit that requires the command line script.

My recommendation is to change the Dashboard to allow changing both 3rd and 4th digits of the IP address independently.

Hopefully that makes sense.
