Ubiquiti Notes

Installing the UniFi Controller in a Jail

Super easy! In a fresh jail,

pkg update
pkg install unifi5
sysrc unifi_enable=YES
service unifi start

Note that this will most certainly be a few versions behind upstream.

Clear DNS Cache

Go to Site → Services → Advanced Features and enable it. Hit “Save”. You’ll see a new section called “Device Authentication” at the bottom. It will have the SSH credentials. SSH into the USG.

# Inspect and remove any offending entries
sudo vi /etc/hosts

# Clear the cache
clear dns forwarding cache
