Ubiquiti cloud controller
Attached is a very simlified network diagram. I am about to install a cloud controller so I can centrally manage all my ap’s etc. I have a range of Ubiquiti hardware on all of the Vlans and the default lan too. How do I allow the cloud controller to pick up all of the hardware? Possible a management vlan?
Thanks in advance. Ed
You have to use Layer 3 adoption..
Or yeah use a management vlan that puts them all on the same layer 2 as the controller is being run on.
This doesn't really have anything to do with pfsense.. Moving this to the General Section.
Thanks and apologies! Eddie
No problem - not a biggy ;)
If you have unifi questions - their forums are pretty responsive.. I am over there as well, but not any where close to the amount of time here ;) hehehe
Ah cheers. Any advice on setting up a management vlan?
management vlan is no different than any other vlan ;)
What AP you running and what version.. What other unifi hardware? Switches?
Until recently their AP didn't actually support a tag vlan for management the vlan the AP was on to manage had to be untagged. But a few revisions back they suppose to have added ability for tagged.. What version of the controller you running? I always run bleeding edge beta.. 5.9.32 for controller and 4.0.15 on my 3 AP..
Wouldn't it be easier to buy a Raspberry Pi and install the software there, place the Pi on the untagged management VLAN ?
Are those vlans on individual pfSense interfaces or a single interface going to a switch with all the vlans ?
Also I wonder if if it will work over the cloud with the double NAT you've got on the WAN 1 interface.Dooh I saw 172.16.x.x not 172.168.x.x
Not sure where he is running his controller. But easy enough to place it on the same vlan being used for the unifi management vlan no matter where the controller actually runs be it a VM on something, actually on hardware like a PI or their own little cloudkey pi type computer.. If budget is there sure I would get one of their little cloud key boxes to run the controller software on.
All mangement vlan is another L2 that all the devices your wanting to "manage" have IP on..
