    This is supported today. Simply modify the device and check the MACAddr checkbox. This will allow the plug-in to monitor a device by MAC instead of the IP address.

    I second this request. I only assign static IP's to servers. All other devices have dynamic IP's, and I think that is the best way to handle things so that you don't need to reserve a larger amount of Addresses.

    It would be help to at least have as an options

    I guess I could do that, It would be easier if the PI tracked MAC's though.
    CISCO SBR they do thing diferantly, not just a check box to reserve IP, the MAC needs to be bound to the IP, not sure if that include DHCP aswell . Never used it as yet. I guess I will give it a try.

    EDIT: That worked, I only wish the recovery was quicker ...

    I did this by going into my router and reserving an IP for each device we use. That way each device we use has it's own static IP.

    Tracking MAC address

    Is there anyway this plugin can track MAC addresses oppossed to IP's?

    I would really like to havr events based on certian device come back on line.
    For ex. when my cell is rediscoverd, I could trigger events based on me comming home. It's a little hard to static a cell phone
Working...
