In the following guide we will setup:
Static DHCPfor the server's IP - this allows for a stable server IP, so that it doesn't change.
Static DNSentry - this allows for any machine that connects to the router to be able to resolve the server's domain (e.g. ds.aivero.lan).
NTP Serveraddress which guarantees device-to-device synchronization for the router connected devices.
In a router connected machine, access
192.168.88.1in your browser and login using the user configured credentials (login
adminand empty password in our case).
On the vertical menu on the left got to

Dfor dynamic on the second column, anymore.
Now that you server's IP is static let's allow for all machines that connect to this router to be able to resolve it from your chose domain name (in our case, and for this guide's purpose, we will use ds.aivero.lan but you should do this for every URL in the list further below).
- On the vertical menu on the left please select
- Then click
Staticon top of the page.
- Now please click
- Please fill in the
Regexpfield with a regular expression that uses your chosen domain suffix (if you chose
ds.aivero.lanthis should be
^.*aivero\.lan$) and server IP in the
Addressfield. Then click
All newly connected machines will be able to resolve your server's domain from the router.
Now, let's setup the networks NTP (network time protocol) server in order to guarantee device to device synchronization.
- First, select
NTP Serverfrom the vertical menu on the left.
