I attempted over the weekend to build and flash an snapshot of openwrt for my
ubiquity 8XP switch. I used the config file , except that I narrowed it to my own
device in order not to generate the rest of the platforms. The outcome was that the
device didn't answer in the management port in the default network, and I couldn't
do dhcp over the rest of the ports. Is there any specific configuration required for
these devices that I may have missed? Maybe an specific /etc/config/network?
The config file for perusal:
I took some time to test this around, I did the following stuff:
- Flashed my squashfs-factory image over ftp.
- Flashed openwrt image using the same method.
Both resulted in an unusable switch, so I suspect this went unmaintained.
If that is the case I'm happy to help to get it in shape, I'd need some guidance
from the regular developers to get involved.
After reviewing this, I found that I skipped the make defconfig step,
as well as from the support git commit I learnt the mgmt port is now
the uplink. It seems a bit odd though, since now the switch behaves
as a router, with nat and firewall included...
