Air Console Default out of box DHCP

I would like to see the Airconsole Default Out of the Box be set to DHCP instead of the 192.168.10. network. this way i can ship an air console to another location have them plug it in and it would obtain an ip automatically.
this way i can look in the arp table of my router or Meraki Firewall and be able to jump to it via web gui and configure it remotely for that location.
this way i can walk them thru hooking it up to the router or swtich in question and be able to have OOB management

The Airconsole user manual is here: ... ser-manual - it lists many different IP configurations that can be used.

If you are shipping devices to other locations then you can configure them with DHCP on the bridge interface (or some other custom configuration) before you ship them?

Airconsole uses mDNS so users on the local segment don't need to use the IP address - they can simply use the hostname - e.g. http://airconsole-56.local/

For true OOB management you may want to consider using both the remote connectivity (to an AES server) possibly using a 3G/4G USB dongle.
