Resin WiFi Hotspot

Is there any built in way to create just an access point that doesn’t share out the internet connection? We want to share only access to our control dashboard on the device and not allow any traffic out from attached clients.

This is to minimize the costs of bandwidth.

So let me ask a couple of clarifying questions, if I may:

  • You want a bandwidth billed connection between the HostOS and to manage the device.
  • You want a local only wifi hotspot for your container to provide a dashboard
  • You explicitly do not want these to be bridged, routed or in any way connected

does that sound about right?

I figured this out by using the DBUS api with NMCLI.
