How do I set a fixed IP address on the Hotspot with provided App?

My hotspot will not work on my network with my firewall. I want to exclude it from the firewall but I need to assign a fixed ip to the hotspot to do this. The app does not appear to provide an option to do this.

Does your network hardware do a “static” DHCP? Always assign same IP to helium, then DMZ or do port forwarding that way?

No, it does not do a static DHCP, those two things are mutually exclusive. Hence the word “Dynamic” in DHCP

You can use DHCP reservations where the Hot Spot MAC address is hard coded in the DHCP server so it always gets the same IP - in a way it get’s a “static” address philosophically speaking which is delivered via the vehicle of dynamic address allocation

The thing you need to touch to do this is your DHCP config - likely inside the router
