I need to run coova on a device that does not easily disable it's built-in DHCP server or the IP address on the WiFi AP interface facing the WiFi clients.

This means both coova DHCP and device built-in DHCP server are now running.

I can try to use the DHCP Relay option, but I understand it's for DHCP server located on another 2nd device outside the 1st device mentioned above, which is not the case here.

How can I run coova to not respond to DCHP requests from clients, and just accept the IP addresses it sees from the clients? (is it the coova uamanyip option ?)

Here's the suggested model that will be running, as you can see coova is sitting behind the DHCP-Server of the device.

SCENARIO #1: Hotspot client (takes IP address from DHCP-Server) <==> WIFI <==> Interface WiFi0 of Access Point (IP address 192.168.1.1 with DHCP-Server giving 192.168.1.0/24 to clients) <==> coova with LAN:Wifi0 and WAN:Eth0 <==> Interface Eth0 connected to internet with public IP assigned by ISP.

SCENARIO #2: Hotspot client (takes IP address from DHCP-Server) <==> WIFI <==> Interface WiFi0 (No IP) <==> bridge <==> Interface Eth1 (IP address 192.168.1.1 with DHCP-Server giving 192.168.1.0/24 to WIFI clients) <==> coova with LAN:Eth1 and WAN:Eth0 <==> Interface Eth0 connected to internet with public IP assigned by ISP.
