V4 can manage UAPs and is available in both stable and beta.

hi sir

 

does Unifi Controller Version 4 upgrades the UAP firmware?

also can the Unifi Controller Version 4 manage AP in another subnets?

 

because Unifi Controller Version 3 have a issue that they cannot manage AP on another subnet...

i have many sites all different subnet.

 

thanks

V4.6.3 stable uses the same firmware as V3.  Both can manage UAPs over layer3.

 

V4.6.6 beta has newer firmware.

Re: Unifi Controller Version 3 and 4???

hi sir

 

thanks for great info

 

how do you manage UAP over L3?

my unifi controller is installed on my laptop. it roams from Vlan1 to vlan2.

the laptop firewall is turned off. from vlan1 i can ping vlan2 UAP

my UAP is on VLAN2 when i am on vlan2 i am able to control them

but when i am on vlan1 it shows disconnected.

 

thanks

I suggest you not host it on a laptop that roams to different VLANs.  Install it on a fixed IP or in the cloud.

Your software controller must be fixed to be used to manage remote APs on another subnets. It must use the same subnet and IP address. Ports must be allowed and maybe redirected to the controller IP address, if you're using NAT at the border of your network.

To see wich ports the UniFi controller users, take a look at this KB article.
