Child bedtime control - scripts

I'm sure many of us have bits and pieces we've put together for added functionality, here's an example of one I've done. I hope that someone finds it useful. It would be interesting to see what others have cobbled together to solve "odd" problems. My scenario: Control of the children's net usage, sp...

Re: Bridge with dstnat

First, make sure you can ping the remote gateway. If you can ping it, try changing your ip route to use the IP of that gateway.

/ip route
add distance=1 dst-address=192.168.2.0/24 gateway=192.168.3.x pref-src=192.168.3.203

Re: 1 wan unlimited, 2nd wan ONLY AS BACKUP

I'm glad the script is working for you.

Re: 1 wan unlimited, 2nd wan ONLY AS BACKUP

What exactly this does? I have setup failover at a customer without this rule. It flags the routes set with check-gateway, which: Periodically (every 10 seconds) check gateway by sending either ICMP echo request (ping) or ARP request (arp). If no response from gateway is received for 10 seconds, re...

Here is a very simple example, essentially using route distances for decision making, and an open ended NAT.

Re: CCR1016-12G Layer 3 VLAN Routing for school

I would look a step up at the 1036, netting much more throughput for ~$300 additional. With the 2S+ model, you can also bring 10G to your servers, and have headway to increase the RAM on the router, both giving you room for growth.

Try this: Connect after reset with winbox to the MAC not the IP. Select the option to clear the config in that first connection. Open the console, in winbox. Bring your WAN online.

Re: 3 vlan network 3 dhcp servers RB3011

You're putting the IP on the VLAN, then placing the servers on to eth6. Try putting them on the respective VLAN.

Also your pool objects have the same name as the VLAN. I'd suggest something like 10-office-vlan and 10-office-pool.
