Raspberry Pi4 Initial Config


  • This page will cover the initial configuration of the Raspberry Pi4 running RADIUSdesk.
  • We assume it is plugged into a network with a Huawei LTE Router.
  • We will assign a fixed IP Address of to the Raspberry Pi4.
  • We will also cover the settings on RADIUSdesk that needs to be adjusted to work with this IP Address.

Set A Fixed IP Address On Pi4

  • Edit /etc/dhcpcd.conf and make sure the following is specified
sudo vi /etc/dhcpcd.conf
  • Adapt to fit your environment
interface eth0
static routers=
static domain_name_servers=
static ip_address=
static domain_search=
  • Reboot the Raspberry Pi4 for the new settings to take effect.

Adapt The Settings In MESHdesk

  • Use your browser and go to the IP Address of the Raspberry Pi4.
  • Log in. (root / admin)
  • Navigate to OtherSettingsDefault Settings
  • Change the IP Address specified in RADIUS-1 and UAM URL to match the IP Address of the fixed IP Address of the device.
  • Click Save to apply the changes.

Adapt Sample Demo1 Mesh

  • In a similar way edit the Captive Portal Exit Point in the Demo1 Mesh (change the IP Address)

Adapt Sample Demo1 AP Profile

  • In a similar way edit the Captive Portal Exit Point in the Demo1 Access Point Profile (change the IP Address)

Next Steps

  • Congratulations your system is now ready to manage the Access Points.
  • There are dedicated Wiki Pages on how to flash and point the Access Points to the server.
