I am using the AP6-Pro on my home network/homelab. As I work from home, I do have more than 1 physical Internet address. The ethernet network has a lot of different layers, but the AP6-Pro is starting to be incorporated.
I understand there is no self hosted application yet, but I found it hard to get the mac address configured.
I see the Ip address and other detail once the unit has access to the internet, but the physcial unit – the box sticker, etc do not expose the MAC ADDRESS for the device. The web management ui (https://manage.alta.inc) becomes a useful tool once the access point has a physcial address and can reach the internet.
When the network has a zero trust, the lack of knowledge on the phsycial mac address is difficult overall.
Yes I do all the network commands to get the mac address, but shouldn’t the hardware have a way to expose this detail before plugging the ethernet POE+ cable to the physical ethernet?
There are other nuances with the UI but I am trying to sort out if these are issues.
