Deciding to begin testing a standalone dashboard and authentication server for my networks with the intention of managing both Robin networks and my standard ap/cpe networks made up primarily of Ubiquiti AP's and CPE's.
Installed and setup Ubuntu 9.10 desktop (I like the GUI).
Installed FreeRadius with mysql databases (installs & setups directly in synaptic manager)
Installed apache, php, pear, phpmyadmin etc (again synaptic manager installation)
Install and setup deloradius as per included instruction sheet.
Setup freeradius for a test UBNT NSM5 x 2 for AP and Station
Install Orangemesh as per enclosed instructions
Test Orangemesh for installation errors... Setups up new networks, plots maps etc.. looks very close to Open-Mesh dashboard.. I like it.
Will now test out migrating an test Open-Mesh gateway and node to orangemesh and see what happens... Will update this once its working.
Total Installtion time from Ubuntu 9.10 install through to working freeradius/orangemesh installation.... 3hrs. Not too bad for a 1st whack at the cat....
Much easier than I anticipated
