Moving Hostnames and Static IPs between routers

I’ve been running a Gl.iNet router as my primary at the moment and have setup a number of hostnames and associated static IP addresses.

If I wanted to move to another Gl.Inet router, can I just copy across the tertfinfo file from my original router to the new router to keep this information rather than having to manually reenter everything again?


I believe hostnames and static IPs are stored in /etc/config/dhcp.

I am not sure if you can just copy over the relevant content in the file.

You can. I’ve brain-transplanted many glinet routers by copying config files, and brainwashed them by directly editing the config files. You may need to restart the affected service (or just reboot) to pick up some changes.
