Re: U-installer Firmware

Yeah for some reason you need to specify https on this device......wow seems like we could have just had it work like every other device......

 

But i can confirm this works,  but UNMS does not.

Re: U-installer Firmware

Even when you ssh to it, the default fallback ip is 192.168.1.2. I can see a reason for them not using .20 but ya documention could be way better.

 

Also the fact that you can't edit the channel in the gui, but you can by ssh is odd too.

Re: U-installer Firmware

I only fluked it out because I just edited an ip from a radio I was on and I was on the secured page version without realizing it awhile back when I first got my first shipments of installers. I just didnt remember til I logged back in to this firmware update. 

 

Adding https guarantees access to matter what.

 

Connect to U-installer SSID

Enter https://169.254.169.169 into web browser.

Login credentials ubnt/ubnt

Update as you would normally update a radio manually without air control or unms software.

Re: U-installer Firmware

Also if you do it from your phone make sure to hit the 3 dots and keep connection when it says something along the lines of logging into network or something whatever.

 

Once you hit keep connection. You can hit htttps://169.254.169.169

 

It's a little cumbersome but hopefully in the future they can allow the uinstaller yo update from the app itself.

 

As for now it doesnt exists..

Re: U-installer Firmware

All development seems to be abandoned on the u-installer and that's just sad because it was going to be a really cool product it just has najom software bugs still like having a 192.x secondary address I'm shocked it went out of beta like that

 

My only guess is it was costing them more to work on then they made so they just pushed it out called it done and refuse to support it

Re: U-installer Firmware

Well in theory it does exactly has its suppose to. Help with installing fresh units.

 

The only thing that would make this the ultimate took is vlan tagging so you can also use the tool for service calls.

 

Also to change ips on the fly..

 

Both features can literally be coded in less then an hours of work from the uinstaller os to the unms app itself. 

 

Ubiquiti does have a real habit though of strictly working on new products only

[ Edited ]

You can, I've done it. Although again cumbersome.

 

Requires you to ssh every time to make a change. All simple programming to make it user friendly and interface ready.
