PfSense & Unifi Controller

  • So my network consists of a pfSense box, HP Procurve Switch, and 3 VLANS configured.

    My switch has VLAN 10,20, and 30 with 30 being the VLAN for WIFI. pfSense has 3 VLANs setup in a identical sense and I have DHCP running on the VLAN for WiFi.

    My issue that I'm having is that when I connect to the Unifi Controller I get a 169.x.x.x IP address but if I connect a laptop to the switch on the same VLAN as the WIFI I can get a IP address perfectly fine.

    I'm looking for advice to move ahead in how to get it so that when I connect to my AP that I get an IP address. I realize that the IP address has to come from the VLAN on the pfSense box as the AP does not have a DHCP controller.

    When looking at logs I see this:

    Apr 25 12:01:51 dhcpd DHCPOFFER on to (mac address) (hostname) via vlan.30
    Apr 25 12:01:51 dhcpd DHCPDISCOVER from (mac address) (host) via vlan.30

    So I'm confused to as why my laptop is not accepting the offer? Or getting the IP

  • How you run the Unify Controller? Where is controller localted ? switch? computer?

    Is it a Unify Cloud key ?

  • did you offer ip helper-address a.b.c.d on unifi controller?
