I understand that. But since your package is based on the Windows version, I'm interested in the geographical difference.

There is none. Even some EAP firmware files for certain hardware versions are exactly the same (those EAPs have regional regulatory provisions hard-coded in a read-only flash partition). But most EAP firmware is different for US, EU and Asia regions. Not so the Controller; it adapts settings to the region the EAP is for.

Proof: download EAP Controller for US and for DE or other EU country. Unpack, compare checksums of the executable:
[CODE]
$ sum EAP_Controller_V2_{DE,US}/*.exe
29242 108031 EAP_Controller_V2_ DE/Omada_Controller_v2.6.0_Windows.exe
29242 108031 EAP_Controller_V2_ US/Omada_Controller_v2.6.0_Windows.exe
$
[/CODE]

q.e.d.

Works brilliantly here - I just had to recursively CHOWN the data directory to the new user and set it all files 0755 and it fired up without any issues :)

Great that it works, but the webapps and logs directories also needs to be owned by the EAP user.

Thanks, Yeah - did the whole eapc folder (I forgot to mention).Thanks for porting it over. Not sure why TP-Link don’t do it - i’ve hooked up 2 locations to one VPS and it is working brilliantly, with a few tweaks, they could make it into something truly amazing.

What should I do if I want to convert your startup script with a systemd script? I tried to follow your steps to make it work on a CentOS but after I get it working I had some problems. Though writing a ansible script to make things easier, but I lack the knowledge on init.d and systemd.

Hi R1D2, just saw your tread by searching for new linux version.
Just installed one new linux server in Geneva and wanted to try to use your version but I get a FTP timed out error
[CODE]

220 ftp.rent-a-guru.de FTP server ready.

[/CODE]

And by the way, I was real disappointed to see so few 5G channels available on the European version of EAP245, is it possible to force flash the firmware to the US version?

Le bonjour de Genève


P.S. Solved forget to activate FTP Passive mode :p

If you need bandwith, I will install a nextcloud server so you can put files on it, don't think we are millions using the linux version and the only tp-link technician help I got was from thailand (by the way they actually find some of my issues).

Hi R1D2,

I've just updated my controller from 2.5.3 to your latest version on CentOS 7. The distro verion of Java doesn't play nice with the controller software implementation, although the controller works, the web interface doesn't, so I reverted to the TP-Link verion of java by modifying the startup script. The startup and stop commands returns extremly quick somehow, before the complete startup is finished, so a start / stop of restart doens't work properly. I'll see if I can fix that in the startup script in CentOS.

Glad it works for you. But don't change ownership of the whole EAPC tree to the eapc user (or even root!) - this will render privilege separation useless. Program files (Java classe) and read-only files need to be owned by the root user with read-only rights for the eapc user. Files the eapc needs to modify must be owned by the eapc user.
