I’m happily running three U6-Lites at home, but I’m not happy with my UniFi Controller setup. In two months, I’ll have my HP Microserver g8 back where I can have persistent Linux running on my LAN, but until now I’m in an all Mac household. I installed the controller on my young son’s iMac, but the controller only runs when someone is logged in, which is less than ideal. Regardless, I’ve been able to get my APs running and updated when needed, though not monitored to my satisfaction.
I thought I finally had a better option by installing Multipass, where I can run Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS without the overhead of VMWare or Parallels. I successfully managed to install the 6.4.54 version of the controller, login and restore the latest backup from my son’s iMac instance. However, the new instance can’t see the APs, which I quickly discovered is because they’re on different networks.
My MBP is on 10.0.1.40, while my Ubuntu instance is on 192.168.64.5. I can ping between the networks, but the controller doesn’t recognize my 3 APs on 10.0.1.5 - .7. This feels like something I should be able to resolve within the controller, but I’m not sure. Can I sort this in the Advanced Gateway Settings or do I have to go into Linux?
