PUT MAC Address on gui


#1

Simple request. I’d like to be able to see the MAC address of the PI Server on the GUI.


#2

Why should it have the MAC address in the web interface? Pi-hole does not use it.


#3

OK. real world situation. My router went south yesterday. I had locked the IP address for the PI at 192.168.169, using the MAC. I had to put in a new router, then had to SSH into the PI to get the MAC. It would have been so much easier to have done this from the GUI. Like I said, something nice, not a big deal.


#4

Why not install a program which is made for this, such as RPI-Monitor? We just need to keep feature creep in mind.


#5

Yeah, I can do that. Thanks. You’ve made a great program. I absolutely love it.


#6

Use a tool like https://www.advanced-ip-scanner.com/ its free


#7

Stuff like the Raspberry Pi running Pi-Hole should have a Static IP and the DHCP assigned Static IP via the MAC address only as a backup option!

But displaying the hostname/IP/MAC address couldn’t hurt indeed :slight_smile:
