mshenoy Posted September 5, 2009 Share Posted September 5, 2009 So my setup is a Linksys WRT160 N and 2 machines 1 running a windows xp and another an Ubuntu 8.10. I want to know if there is a way that the router can send a message to my PC when it receives a DHCP request and grants it an IP address. Like for instance when the IP address is granted it has the MAC address too so it sends a message "YOUR IP (internal or external is 0.0.0.0) " Now, I know the router (WRT160n) has a log of the DHCP requests with the mac addresses and the IP addresses as well. Since I have an Ubuntu machine could I access this log through the machine and have a cron job running to check for IP addresses assigned or could this be done through the Router by its own. I just care about the messaging functionality...I am sure there is a way ....I am looking into it....but do any of you guys know how this could be accomplished ??
