BGP: AS_TRANS (AS23456)

Hi guys, We are using BGP on RouterOS 5/6 and have a 32 AS number, but a new peer only supports 16 bit AS numbers. I am aware that we should be able to deal with this using the AS_TRANS number as a 16 bit placeholder, but I don't know if RouterOS supports that. Does anyone know? Is there any configu...

Feature request: tcptraceroute

Hi all. One utility that proves very handy on Linux boxes is tcptraceroute, which allows you to troubleshoot not being able to connect to a specific service when you can ping the host. Often this is due to nat, mangles and filters on routers between you and the host in question and tcpraceroute make...

Re: SNMP reporting memory problem

Hi.

I've just tried the same snmpwalk on a different rc8 box, this time a RB433, and the results are the same:

iso.3.6.1.2.1.25.2.3.1.6.65536 = INTEGER: 15760
iso.3.6.1.2.1.25.2.3.1.6.131073 = INTEGER: 29036

Hi. With version 3.28 I had our router setup with all local interfaces set to reply-only arp, and the dhcp server set to add arp leases - thus helping to prevent arp spoofing. This still works in the most part with 4.11, but when a dhcp lease is renewed and if the arp lease isn't there, the arp leas...

Re: Hotspot, Radius and Framed-IP-Address

Hi, I found the problem :o

The user profile was set to the hotspot pool and this was overriding the Framed-IP-Address.

I gues this changed between 3.x and 4.x.

Anyway, it seems to be working fine now, so thanks a lot for your help.

Re: Hotspot, Radius and Framed-IP-Address

For us, keeping the pool on the radius server is preferable - it works (or used to :? ) very nicely. Are you currently on 4.10? Did you definitely try Framed-IP-Address on 4.10? Yes, the host to-address record shows as the incorrect IP assigned form the local hotspot pool. I'll probably sent a reque...
