Warning: Be careful when changing the USB network configuration in a SSH through USB session—you could easily lock yourself out if you make a mistake! You should leave a terminal emulator like Fingerterm running on the device so that you can easily restore the network configuration to its previous state in case something goes wrong.

Then, open the DHCP server configuration located /etc/udhcpd.usb0.conf. Look for the following lines and update them:

option          broadcast

Restart both the DHCP server and the network service to apply the configuration changes.

$ systemctl restart busybox-udhcpd@usb0.service systemd-networkd

Finally, unplug the USB cable and plug it back again to renew your computer’s DHCP lease.
