I have a simple network topology consisting of 3 pieces of hardware, a CentOS server, an access point and a 4g modem. The server has 2 LAN ports and the 4g modem and the access point are connected to each.
After reading and watching videos about Chilispot, I am unsure in my setup where my DHCP server would reside. I know it will be on the server box but I am confused if Chilispot provides this or if I need to enable the CentOS in built DHCP server?
As another element I am unsure of, the 4g modem is just a modem and does not contain a router, but it does connect via a LAN port rather than a USB connection. Without a router I am not sure how my server can share the connection to all the devices connected to the AP as a result.
To be clear in my project I have to get everything running on a single computer, and I cannot have anything more. I know from reading that my Radius and Web Server components can all be run locally, which is great.
