How to set a static DHCP lease on the Pace 5268AC router?
My client has U-verse with a Pace 5268AC router. One of his hosts requires pinholes, so that it can be queried from the internet via a mobile app.
The host requires a fixed LAN IP address, which is in conflict with the requirement for the Pinhole configuration that it must be a DHCP host. The host cannot be in DHCP configuration, because the DNS forwarding service run by the 5268AC does not resolve the host’s dynamic DNS queries. I have to be able to hard-code the DNSs.
I have tried to set a fixed address for that host on the 5268AC (I forgot, what screen that was, and I am not at my client’s location), which I assume is a static lease. It is a pull-down that let’s me pick an address from a super-long consecutive addresses in the DHCP range. When hit “Save” it goes right back to the the original selection, which was something like “address from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx pool,” presumably the generic DHCP configuration. This appears to be a bug.
