Which is not what you originally asked, and I did NOT post how to do that, but glad that it's working.

Did you not understand the past TWO TIMES you were told yes?

Pay attention: YOU specifically said you didn't want people to get an address until you entered the MAC address into DHCP...and now you're asking if there's any alternative to doing it?? Yes, there is...use DHCP for what it was intended for: let it automatically give out addresses. Otherwise, AGAIN, you will have to manually enter them, WHICH IS WHAT YOU ASKED FOR.

No, I understand it quite well...YOU are not understanding the answer, and you keep changing the question. You asked in your last post if there was 'any alternative to same', for entering addresses into the DHCP file. There isn't, and won't be. Now you're asking if there's a GUI or script.

If you want the entries in there, you have to PUT them there. There is no 'one-click' way to do this...YOU need to edit the file manually, and restart the service. If you want to write a script, then feel free to.

AGAIN, this makes NO SENSE at all. You are NOT making DHCP more secure, and you are NOT preventing anyone from getting on your network by doing this. All you're doing is making things harder to administrate.

Amar,

for a more easy way what we are trying to tell you since last 4-5 times, there is no other way of doing this automatically with one or two or even 50 clicks...

if you want this to be set up in your DHCP configs you have to do it manually with your own hands on keyboard.

And seriously this makes no sense at all..
