Update Tough switch

Ubiquiti have renamed their tough switch line in the web UI, to Edge MAX

Reset the switch

It's honestly easier to reset the switch (Holding down the reset button) and then connecting to it directly.

You will need to set your network interface to the below

computer IP:
Gateway: NUll

Download the firmware


Edit your SSH config file

This is becuase it uses the diffie hellman group key Algorithms

Host # (1)!
    KexAlgorithms +diffie-hellman-group1-sha1
    Ciphers aes128-cbc
  1. Replace the IP address with that of the switch you're connecting to.

Copy the files to the switch

scp SW.v2. ubnt@

SSH to the switch

ssh ubnt@

The password will be ubnt

Start the upgrade

cd /bin/
fwupdate -m

Do not panic

It will take around 5-10 minutes after running the command. DO NOT power off the switch, however you are able to unplug your computer.
