QC Ubiquiti EdgeMAX - EdgeRouter-X & UAP-AC-Lite Setup
 
15:17
This is a tutorial video on how to install and configure a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter-X (ER-X) / UAP-AC-Lite combo. I focus on configuring the ER-X using the basic installation wizard and some best practices like hardware NAT offloading. The other part of the video is aimed at installing the Unified Access Point and adopting the UAP on the UniFi Controller.

QC Ubiquiti EdgeMAX - Using VLAN 1 on a vlan-aware switch0 Interface
 
07:36
This video focuses adding multiple VLANs to the switch0 interface on an EdgeRouter. There are some caveats with configuring a vlan-aware switch0 while using the default LAN range (192.168.1.0/24). In this video I create two VLANs (1 and 10) and demonstrate why issues occur when we try to use the default LAN range without assigning it to VLAN 1.

QC Ubiquiti EdgeMAX - Basic Traffic Analysis & Deep Packet Inspection (DPI)
 
09:56
This video focuses on implementing the Traffic Analysis feature in conjunction with Deep Packet Inspection (DPI). The EdgeRouter uses DPI to view the contents of packets flowing through the device from LAN to WAN. This analysis is only implemented when traffic (I believe) is flowing through the firewall (WAN to LAN), so unless you have a firewall between your LAN interfaces (host to host), you will not see this specific traffic. This feature will only work for offloaded traffic on EdgeRouters other than the EdgeRouter-X (ER-X). For the EdgeRouter-X the DPI feature is supported for non-offloaded traffic. In the video I demonstrate that there are two modes of traffic analysis, the enable and the host-only mode. The enable mode is traffic analysis with DPI, the host only-mode only shows the bandwidth and the host that generated it.

QC Ubiquiti EdgeMAX - UAP with Guest WLAN & VLAN Trunks (VIF)
 
24:22
This video focuses on combining an EdgeRouter with an Unified Access Point (UAP) and configuring trunks (tagged ports). In the example I am using an ER-X and a UAP-AC-LITE which will be configured with two WLANs, one for GUESTS and one for the LAN clients. The 'trusted' WLAN will be untagged in VLAN 1 (192.168.1.0/24), whereas the guest WLAN will be tagged with VLAN-id 10 (10.0.0.0/24). In the video I show you how to configure the EdgeRouter vlan-aware switch0 interface and some of the caveats and problems you might encounter. I also focus on setting up the UniFi controller and configuring the wireless networks and guest policies. Finally I show you how to disable the guest policies on the controller and instead run the guest policies (firewall rules) on the EdgeRouter.

QC Ubiquiti EdgeMAX - Blocking Adult Websites using Traffic Analysis & Firewall Categories
 
10:50
This video focuses on blocking adult entertainment websites (apps) by using firewall categories and Deep Packet Inspection (DPI). This blocking relies on the workings of the traffic analysis feature which allows the EdgeRouter to view the contents of packets flowing through the device from LAN to WAN. This analysis is only implemented when traffic (I believe) is flowing through the firewall (WAN to LAN), so unless you have a firewall between your LAN interfaces (host to host), you will not see this specific traffic. This feature will only work for offloaded traffic on EdgeRouters other than the EdgeRouter-X (ER-X). For the EdgeRouter-X the DPI feature is supported for non-offloaded traffic. I have another video that focuses on enabling and configuring the traffic analysis feature. In this video I demonstrate blocking certain websites using the build-in categories as well as creating custom categories. The categories and apps are a Ubiquiti proprietary implementation, so we cannot add our own custom websites that we want to block. Some adult websites are listed under the Streaming-Media category. In most cases we do not want to block this entire category because it also hosts websites that do not categorize under 'adult entertainment' like YouTube and Vimeo. Before you configure this feature, you need to verify that the Topsites-Adult catogory is populated with entries. If it is empty, it might be due to the firmware version you are using, and an update is required.

QC Ubiquiti EdgeMAX - Adding Linux Packages to EdgeOS
 
02:52
This video focuses on adding the adding Linux packages to the underlying linux shell that EdgeOS runs on. By default, the sources list (repositories) are empty, so you cannot install applications with apt-get for example. The solution is to add the Wheezy Debian repositories to the sources list at /etc/apt/sources.list. Even though the latest distribution of Debian is Jessie, the recommended repositories are still Wheezy.

QC Ubiquiti UniFi - Layer 3 (L3) Device Adoption Methods
 
06:15
This video focuses on the discovery and adoption of UniFi devices when the controller is in a different subnet/external location. The devices discover the controller using the inform URL. Layer 3 adoption is a process where this URL is changed to a custom value, which is the location (IP) of the UniFi controller. There are three different methods shown in this video, using the UBNT Discovery Tool, using SSH and manipulating the DHCP scope (option 43).

QC Ubiquiti EdgeMAX  - Dual WAN Load Balancing
 
28:23
This video focuses on the Dual WAN Load-Balancing feature when using an EdgeRouter, in this example I am using an ER-X. In earlier versions of EdgeOS we had to rely on Policy Based Routing (PBR) in order to make this work. Luckily, since version 1.4.0 we can use the Load-Balancing Wizard to set this up. In the video I talk about load balancing, flows, sticky addresses, reachability tests, weighting and failover modes.

QC Ubiquiti EdgeMAX - Site to Site IPsec VPN to Linux Server (strongSwan)
 
20:42
This video focuses on establishing a site-to-site connection betwee a Linux server running strongSwan and an EdgeRouter. The EdgeMAX platform basically runs strongSwan in the background, so we can 'steal' the configuration and apply it directly on the Linux server. In the video I also talk about general encryption settings, IPsec parameters, Dead Peer Detection (DPD) and other recommended settings.

QC Ubiquiti EdgeMAX - Speedtest.net Bandwidth Test using a Script (CLI)
 
03:01
This video focuses on adding a speedtest.net bandwidth testing script to an EdgeRouter. In this example I am using an EdgeRouter-X (ER-X) and the script will test the download and upload directly from the device. Of course UBNT routers are better at forwarding packets than they are at generating them. So for the best result you'd want to run the test again from a workstation behind the EdgeRouter. Other options to test the throughput of a WAN connection is to use the Bandwith testing tool (other video) and iPerf3 (also other video) Link to EdgeMAX configuration files: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AsuDsQ7TSDqNhnsDSCQit6jlk-sY Sources used: https://community.ubnt.com/t5/EdgeMAX/How-to-install-and-run-Iperf-on-Ubiquiti-Edgerouter-Lite/td-p/1284046 https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest.py https://github.com/sivel/speedtest-cli https://linux.die.net/man/1/curl

QC Ubiquiti EdgeMAX - Speed Testing Bandwidth with the Bandwidth Tool
 
06:31
This video focuses on using the build-in GUI bandwidth testing tool. This tool can be used to test the bandwidth capabilities of a link. In the background this tool relies on using iPerf3 and requires an iPerf3 capable device on the other end. One side will be the sender (client) and the other will be the server (receiver). The EdgeRouter is capable of acting as both the sender and the receiver, however output is only generated when acting as the sender. Take note that the EdgeRouter (and all routers in general) are better at forwarding data then they are at generating it. For this reason the bandwidth results may be less than the actual capabilities of the device Link to EdgeMAX configuration files: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AsuDsQ7TSDqNhnsDSCQit6jlk-sY Sources used: https://iperf.fr/iperf-download.php http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/wily/man1/iperf3.1.html https://community.ubnt.com/t5/EdgeMAX/Running-speed-test-from-Edge-Router-Lite/td-p/551108 https://community.ubnt.com/t5/EdgeMAX/How-to-install-and-run-Iperf-on-Ubiquiti-Edgerouter-Lite/td-p/1284046 https://www.stevejenkins.com/blog/2015/10/using-the-ubiquiti-edgerouters-built-in-bandwidth-tester/

QC Ubiquiti EdgeMAX - Basic Smart Queue Quality of Service (QoS)
 
05:30
This video focuses on implementing the Smart Queue Quality of Service (QoS) feature. This feature allows us to limit the download and upload rate of the WAN connection to a specific value. You can use separate values for the upload and download speed. In the video I demonstrate how the feature works and what in which scenarios it can be useful. Basically, the Smart Queue QoS feature is a traffic shaper that applies to all outgoing traffic from LAN to WAN. You can configure multiple shapers, if for example you are using multiple WAN interface. A common scenario is where we use a WAN link for data and a WAN link for VoIP. In this case we can apply the shaper to the voice traffic so that it will never be dropped by the ISP's policer.

L2TP relies on encryption via IPsec, and the ESP protocol cannot normally be translated. The solution to our problem is to use NAT-Traversal, which encapsulates the ESP protocol into UDP (port 4500). In this video I show you how to port forward (or use destination NAT) the correct UDP ports to the internal L2TP server. In this case the server is running Windows Server 2016 with the Routing and Remote Access (RRAS) role.

QC Ubiquiti EdgeMAX - Speed Testing Bandwidth with iPerf3 (CLI)
 
08:23
This video focuses on using the build-in CLI based iPerf3 testing tool. This tool can be used to test the bandwidth capabilities of a link. One side will be the sender (client) and the other will be the server (receiver). Take note that the EdgeRouter (and all routers in general) are better at forwarding data then they are at generating it. For this reason the bandwidth results may be less than the actual capabilities of the device. If you want to run bidirectional tests (or use a GUI application like jPerf), you need to install the iPerf2 package. In this video I also show you how to add the wheezy Debian repositories and install the iPerf2 tool.

QC Ubiquiti UniFi - Upgrading the UniFi Controller from Version 4 to 5 on Linux
 
06:15
In this video I talk about upgrading the UniFi controller from version 4 to 5 on Linux. The current stable release of UniFi (in the UBNT download section) is version 5 (5.4.11 at the time of this video). The debian repositories however, have not been updated yet. This means that the stable repository still points to version 4 (v4.8 being the latest). In order to upgrade the controller we need to change the repository from stable to unifi5. Make sure to make a backup of your environment before upgrading the UniFi controller!
