Manually Adding Ubiquiti Unifi Access Point To Unifi Contoller

This is the process to add a new Unifi AP to the Unifi controller when discovery doesn’t work.  In our case, we have a central Unifi controller managing APs on multiple networks.  But, the routers don’t allow the discovery tool to see new APs on other networks, so this is how we add one.  In this example, we’ll say the Unifi controller is at 192.168.1.55.

How to run multiple networks from a Mikrotik

Since a Mikrotik (example being a 750GL) is a true 5 port router and not just a consumer-grade router (which is actually a router with 4 port switch), you can set them up to run multiple networks, use multiple ISPs for WAN failover, and more.  Why you would want to do any of these things is beyond the scope of this post, but this will show you how to do it.

Let’s take an RB750GL and have it run 4 internal networks instead of one.  Like this:

Mikrotik port mapping/forwarding

If you would like to direct requests for a certain port to an internal machine (sometimes called opening a port, port mapping), you can do it like this:

/ip firewall nat add chain=dstnat dst-port=1234 action=dst-nat protocol=tcp to-address=192.168.1.1 to-port=1234

This rule translates to: when an incoming connection requests TCP port 1234, use the DST-NAT action and redirect it to local address 192.168.1.1 and the port 1234 Continue reading Mikrotik port mapping/forwarding
