Blog 07 – Ubiquiti Unifi

Unfortunately there was a complete lack action taken to ensure that students knew this was one of the workshops that we had to do, which resulted in me (and multiple other students) thinking that it was some optional exercise which I did not the time or available brain power for.

I did some research later from which I learned that the process basically follows these steps:
* creating a UniFi account
* installing the UniFi controller
* connecting the WiFi router to POE
* initialising a pfsense server
* connect to the router with the UniFi application
From there you can update the firmware.
Also it may be necessary to reset the router before connecting to it.

This is designed to be as simple as possible and handles most of the configuration automatically.
