Dual interface Unifi Video setup - Is it possible?

Hello, 

Just wondering to control traffic if a setup like this is possible. I'm mostly interested if the traffic in the unifi video can be split across 2 interfaces? I know the separation of the switches is only for graphical purposes as it could be a single switch with VLAN, but I'm more interested in the actual server side configuration of 2 interfaces. Is it possible at all?

 

Thanks!

UFV not not provide control over the ethernet ports.  You would need to do that at the OS level.

Thanks @LLigetfa

 

So basically it would be a matter of manually routing at the OS level, ip route or something to that effect.

 

Based on the official port list found in https://help.ubnt.com/hc/en-us/articles/217875218-UniFi-Video-Ports-Used, would it be just a matter of segregating to the interfaces the required ports. Now the question is what about 7443 and 7080 which are the standard management ports? Do the cameras require them for normal traffic operation? I see the inbound camera streams to the controller is 6666 which is separate from the 7445/7446/7447 used between the NTR and clients. 

 

So basically a camera to NRV connection would be happy with 6666, 7004 and 7442? All the other ports could be routed to the other interface?

That document specifies what two endpoints use what ports.  Don't overlook 7442 and also the ports to/from the cloud portal are not listed.

Understood... Any documented Cloud Ports anywhere? 

 

I have an old NVR installation and might spend sometime this weekend to try and make this work... I'll post the results...

 

Thanks!!

@giannifp - the diagram you created will work just fine on a dual nic NVR with no special configuration of the NVR software or the OS.  The NVR software listens on all of the configured Ethernet interfaces for either/both camera and viewer connections.

 

I am currently using a setup like you described (but with vlans).  The only issue appears to be with the statistics that the NVR software reports for network usage.  It seems to only report on one interface.
