Network

HassOS uses NetworkManager to control the host network. In future releases, you will be able to set up the configuration using the API/UI. Currently only a manual configuration using NetworkManager connection files is supported. Without a configuration file, the device will use DHCP by default. These network connection files can be placed on a USB drive and imported to the host as described in Configuration.

Configuration Examples

You can read the Official Manual or find many configuration examples across the internet. The system is read-only, if you don't want the IP address to change on every boot, you should set the UUID property with a generic UUID4. Inside \CONFIG\network\ on the USB or SD, create a file called my-network and add the appropriate contents below:

Default

We have a preinstalled connection profile:

[connection]
id=HassOS default
uuid=f62bf7c2-e565-49ff-bbfc-a4cf791e6add
type=802-3-ethernet

[ipv4]
method=auto

[ipv6]
addr-gen-mode=stable-privacy
method=auto

LAN

[connection]
id=hassos-network
uuid=d55162b4-6152-4310-9312-8f4c54d86afa
type=802-3-ethernet

[ipv4]
method=auto

[ipv6]
addr-gen-mode=stable-privacy
method=auto

Wireless WPA/PSK

[connection]
id=hassos-network
uuid=72111c67-4a5d-4d5c-925e-f8ee26efb3c3
type=802-11-wireless

[802-11-wireless]
mode=infrastructure
ssid=MY_SSID
# Uncomment below if your SSID is not broadcasted
#hidden=true

[802-11-wireless-security]
auth-alg=open
key-mgmt=wpa-psk
psk=MY_WLAN_SECRET_KEY

[ipv4]
method=auto

[ipv6]
addr-gen-mode=stable-privacy
method=auto

Static IP

Replace the following configuration:

[ipv4]
method=manual
address=192.168.1.111/24,192.168.1.1
dns=8.8.8.8;8.8.4.4;

For address, the value before the comma is the IP address and subnet prefix bitlength; the second value is the IP address of the gateway.

Tips

Reset network

If you want to reset the network configuration back to the default DHCP settings, use the following commands on the host:

$ rm /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/*
$ cp /usr/share/system-connections/* /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/
$ nmcli con reload

Powersave

If you have trouble with powersave you can do following:

[wifi]
# Values are 0 (use default), 1 (ignore/don't touch), 2 (disable) or 3 (enable).
powersave=0

Using nmcli to set a static IPV4 address

Log into the HASSOS base system via a console:

Welcome to HassOS
Hassio login:

Login as root (no password needed)

At the hassio > prompt, type login (as instructed).

From here you will use the nmcli configuration tool.

# nmcli connection show will list the “HassOS default” connection in use.

# nmcli con show "HassOS default" will list all the properties of the connection.

# nmcli con edit "HassOS default" will put you in a position to edit the connection.

nmcli> print ipv4 will show you the ipv4 properties of this connection.

To add your static IP address (select 'yes' for manual method);

nmcli> set ipv4.addresses 192.168.100.10/24
Do you also want to set 'ipv4.method' to 'manual'? [yes]:

In addition I have found it is wise to set the dns server and the local gateway. For most home routers these will be the same address. If you are using Pi-Hole you can set the dns to that.

nmcli> set ipv4.dns 192.168.100.1
nmcli> set ipv4.gateway 192.168.100.1
nmcli> save
nmcli> quit

If you now view the default connection cat /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/default you should see the method is manual and the address is set.

Doing a nmcli con reload does not always work so restart the VM.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
