Install Unifi Controller on VPS

Misc
I have realized why they are charging at least 20$/month for a hosted Unifi controller solution - one of the reasons for this price is that it actually took me a few days to set it up right. I bought a VPS (OVH.com) for about 5$/month and installed Unifi controller on which I have added (migrated) all my costumers Unifi APs. [wp_ad_camp_1] 1. My choosen OS is Ubuntu 16.04 Server (64 bits, Linux Kernel 4.4.0.45.48) 2. Add the Unifi repo so you can install Unifi with apt-get command I like to use NANO editor. nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/100-ubnt.list and add "deb http://www.ubnt.com/downloads/unifi/debian stable ubiquiti" so you can install and update the controller. 3.

Sync Firefox on multiple computers

Microsoft, Misc
In this short post I will share with you how you can use Firefox on all your computer devices that run a Microsoft OS (mobiles are excluded). I don't have Firefox Sync option enabled but I rather have a portable Firefox distribution that is accessible to me via Dropbox. Just put your Firefox portable in your Dropbox account and that's it! And if you're concerned about your security (like me:) than you can easily use a free open-source disk encryption software for Windows 7/Vista/XP called TrueCrypt but I will write my next post about that option.
