Hello everyone,

I have enabled my intel edison mini breakout board as a hotspot using hostapd as discussed in /thread/58633?sr=inbox&ru=417172 this thread.

I want to set the limit of maximum number of connections (clients) that can connect to it.

Is there any command or file that I need to perform to achieve this ?

Thank you

Hello mailto:falak.desai@yahoo.com falak.desai@yahoo.com,

The https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Udhcpc uDHCP configuration of Edison can be found in /etc/hostapd/udhcpd-for-hostapd.conf. In that file you can see the range of IP addresses assigned by Edison while on AP mode. You can change this configuration to the number of IP addresses you desire and once they are over the Edison should not assign more therefore limiting the amount of clients on your hotspot.

Peter.
