Re: SIP port(s)

Are there any plans to add any SIP ports to any switches or routers? The HAP ac with one would make an ideal home router with a SIP port added and remove the need for an extra box for VOIP.
SIP port? Do you mean ATA port as Mikrotik already supports SIP ALG just fine.

Re: RB4011

To those having bad 5Ghz problems, do not choose auto. It may be that MikroTik is choosing a dFS channel and not all modern devices support DFS channels properly.

Re: LtAP Mini GPS useless without antenna

My question is how did this get past QA? How did so many devices who cannot lock on to GPS without an external antenna get shipped? This is probably as paramount for a recall from Mikrotik as I've ever seen. A core feature which is advertised (STILL) on the device but doesn't state the external ante...

Re: Why remote logging not work?

Just to clue other people in... its a matcher in the MT syslog that is the problem.

If you try to send critical,error,info, etc all at once. Only events that match all 3 topics will be sent. you have to send individual topics separately.

Re: Error handling?

Going to resurrect this as I found this during my runtime error handling testing. The syntax format has to be very specific to process the error handling properly. Example: :do {/interface bridge add name=loopback; } on-error={:put "loopback exists"} So its :do {whatever command you want to run; } o...

Unable to use variables substitution within an array

Just discovered that when trying to use a variable within an array with keys, it does a comparison instead. example: :global "newAddressListArray" {$localserver="OnPremiseServer"} or example: :global "newAddressListArray" {"$localserver"="OnPremiseServer"} comes back "false" instead ...

rant about Functions arguments and variables

Discovered today that if you send a function an argument, you can no longer use a global variable within the function. Once a argument is passed to the variable, the global variable is no longer referenced by the root, but only by the arguments that are passed in. Example: :global "physInterface" et...

Re: How To Get Keys of this Array ?

The array_keys() function is used to get all the keys or a subset of the keys of an array.
Here is syntax

array_keys(input_array, search_key_value, strict)
from my testing... this function doesn't exist within RouterOS. Can you give me a syntax example?

Re: mangle and Qos - pre vs post routing

- there can only be a single packet mark on a packet, so when you want to use packet-marks
both for routing decisions and for QoS, you need to apply the mark for QoS in post-routing
For routing decisions (and routing marks), wouldn't you do that pre-routing?

Re: mangle and Qos - pre vs post routing

Why would one mangle pre-routing vs post-routing for QOS? I've seen it both ways but don't know why. I'm sure someone will post you a link of the packet flow diagram but it depends on that according to how you are routing the packets. Generally go for pre-routing although for a lot my applications ...

Re: How to setup DSCP 46 Priority for voip?

first, Thank you IntrusDave for the script. If someone wouldn't mind explaining, why put the DSCP mangle on the post routing chain and not the pre-routing chain?

Also, why use the default queue tree and not say pcq?
