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 “desktop version” 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 found and signed up with a dynamic IP address service. and set up port forwarding on my Edgerouter.
I set up everything at my house. He is on a 192.168.2 network and everything worked great. I went and installed it and it picked up his internet perfectly. I then logged into my home computer and when i went to the controller. It shows his equipment is disconnected. I now am not sure what to do.
I tried everything the Device adoption method suggested to no avail. As i continued my search I came across a post saying that ubuntu my be blocking the ports so i tried opening the ports following the guide here
everything but the ssh. (don’t really need it) everything was accepted.
Even redid my domain and nothing still.
Would a cloud Key be an easier thing to get up and running at this point?
