  5. sudo systemctl stop dhcpcd
  6. sudo systemctl disable dhcpcd

  1. Wow, it worked! How unusual to populate a few data fields, click a few buttons, and be done… in Linux. Without the NetworkManager, I’d be pouring through man pages, PDFs, web searches, and endless tutorials. I’d probably muck it up so good I’d have to reinstall to start over. It would be days wasted. This tip made Linux work as well as a commercial product. Nicely done.

  2. Any chance there’s an equally straightforward way to make a Pi into an easily configured DHCP and Proxy server? 😀

  3. Excellent, thanks for this! Far more elegant and secure solution than the first few search results that essentially amount to “just trust me bro and copy/paste these bash scripts.”
