I am trying to set up a multisite controller system because my brother is not good at anything tecky but wanted to go with a system like mine so he didn’t have to worry about comcast nickel and diming him to death.
I am running an Edgerouter 4 with 3 unifi AP’s in my house. I run the Unifi and UNMS controllers on a freenas Ubuntu 18.04LTS VM and the system works great. I pay for 400 down but i have never seen the system actually get less then 410 down.
I had him get and Edgerouter X and 1 AP (smaller house). I want to just add his equipment to my controllers so i can take care of updates and settings for him so he doesn’t break anything.
I watched both the videos Lawrence posted about hosting your own controller and i must be missing something.
I opened the 3 ports on my Edgerouter and even though i originally added the AP when it was on my network when i installed it at his house it didn’t work at all. and i couldn’t connect to my controller located at my house to change settings. So i took his Edgerouter and Ap back to my house to try and figure this out.
I did have internet wired through the Edgerouter but not at the AP.
My network is a 192.168.1 system. So this time i was thinking set his as 192.168.2 and both have a guest network of 192.168.10. (I didn’t have his edgerouter at first so i had left it as 192.168.1)
Is there a way to adopt these to my controller when they are on my network so when i get to his house they are literally plug and play? And should i add the VLAN for the guest network only to the port that has the AP?
