Upgrading UniFi Video to 3.1.5 and beyond using uvc-updater Script

With the latest release of Ubiquiti UniFi Video 3.2.0, Gen 1 airCam's are no longer supported. This includes the following models airCam, airCam-Dome and airCam-Mini. If you have any of these cameras on your network you will not want to upgrade to the latest UniFi Video 3.2.0 as these cameras will no longer work with the software. As a result I have added some options to a script I have previously created for streamlining the upgrade process from airVison2.

Setup an L2TP over IPSec VPN for remote access to your Ubiquiti EdgeRouter


As of Apple IOS 10 and Mac OSX Sierra, PPTP has been removed due to it being weak and vulnerable to attack. This means if you currently use PPTP as your VPN for remote access to your home router you will need to migrate to L2TP over IPSec. Here is how you can do this on the EdgeRouter.

Configuring DDI's with Grandstreams UCM6100 Series PBX and 2Talk

With Grandstream Networks UCM6100 Series IP/PBX you can configure Outbound DOD's (DDI's). An example of why you would use this might be that you wish to only register 6 trunks on your UCM and then have 30 DDI numbers each assigned to extensions on the UCM. Each extension on the PBX when dialling outbound will use on of the 6 available trunks and present its own configured DDI number as the caller id instead of the trunks caller id.

This blog will explain how to setup two Cambium cnPilot E500 Outdoor Access Points, one hard wired to the Network and one connected via a WiFi (Mesh). 
This can be useful in scenarios where it's not possible to run additional LAN cabling to another Access Point whilst requiring extended WiFi coverage.

Using SSH Keys to access MikroTik RouterBOARDs

If you regularly use SSH as your preferred method of accessing your MikroTik RouterBOARD devices, SSH keys provide a more secure way of logging onto your device, rather than just a password alone. 

I’ll explain a little bit about SSH keys, how to generate your own, and show you how to import them into your MikroTik device

You have a Zenbu router that is struggling to provide sufficient wireless coverage to your property. 
You plan to use a Ubiquiti AirMax device to extend wireless coverage. 

The access point we will be configuring in this scenario is a Ubiquiti NanoStation M2A high powered, high gain 2.4GHz MIMO directional (53° beam width) access point.

Why don't the default Agent Login and Logout Postfixes work on Grandstream Call Queues

When creating a Call Queue your Agents are unable to Login and Logout of the queue using the default Postfix. 

If you are trying to use the default Login and Logout Postfixes (i.e. 6500* to login and 6500** to logout) the call will fail from a Grandstream IP Phone with the default Dial Plan.
