Re: When can developers improve ipv6 functionality?

It will be another load of fun if we ever decide that we actually want direct communication. Because unless something changed, recommendation for default router config (home devices and such) was to block new incoming connections from internet. So you will have devices all with public addresses, bu...

Re: When can developers improve ipv6 functionality?

A long time ago, there was the sound of perfecting ipv6 modules in the forum. It has been nearly six or seven years in an instant, and many functions are still lacking. ipv6 nat, policy route, routing mark, and many other functions are completely absent.

Re: A serious issue on RB4011 after upgrade to RouterOS version 6.45.2

But my bad luck at this time was not gone. After downgrading both firmware and RouterOS to the previous version my router still refused to obtain the ip-address from the ISP via DHCP.

Re: The RB4011 does not support Passive DAC modules and SFP GPON modules

No. An interface is the module that you put into your SFP/SFP+ cage, not the cage itself. The specification of the cage itself is (almost) purely mechanical. And my understanding is that both host software and host hardware must be compatible with the type of transceiver you want to use. It appears...
