How to obtain inventory/usage of SFP modules?

Is there any simple way to obtain the SFP data (serial numbers and DDM info) for all the SFP modules installed in one equipment? A complex script iterating thru all the SFP interfaces doesn't seem practical. Some print command (eg. /interface ethernet sfp print ) should print a summary about each SF...

VPN Idle-Timeout (mis)used as Session-Timeout?

After some complains about frequent drops in our dialup VPNs, we have made a test and this are our current conclusions. When the user connects, the Mikrotik (CHS) receives the answer below from the FreeRADIUS. The user navigates in the web and maintains an active "Spotify" streaming active to make s...

CRS326 reporting wrong interface speed on CLI

RouterOS 6.42.1 While debugging a user connectivity problem I've found the SSH CLI is sometimes reporting a wrong speed in interfaces. This is correct (10M) and consistent with the information provided in the WEBFIG: > /interface ethernet monitor 13 name: ether14 status: link-ok auto-negotiation: do...

CRS112 drops HW offloading when bridge is VLAN IVL enabled

After noticing our recent acquired CRS112s weren't using the HW offloading in the bridge ports, I've done some tests and found that happens after activating the IVL (VLAN filtering) at the bridge level. By default, with RouterOS 6.41.3 the HW offloading is active (note the "H" in each switch port) [...

CRS328-24P-4S+RM is finally available

I've received information from our main Mikrotik supplier that CRS328 (24 PoE AF/AT) is already in production/sales. The supplied product flyer doesn't mention the L2 IPv6 support capabilities, of course the L3 functions will be available as in other RouterOS products, but, does de equipment (and th...

"Duplicate" ARP entries and delays when VRRP interfaces are used

In interfaces using VRRP, I'm seeing a lot of "duplicate" entries, ARP broadcasts and connectivity delays This is what I've concluded in my analysis of the situation: Routers do their direct deliveries on the base (non VRRP) interface, using the interface MAC address in his ARP requests (even when t...

IPv6 replacing the link-local address

To ease the management of IPv6 networks is useful as a first step to base them on the existing IPv4 network structure. One of the things that could be done is using some elements embedded in the IPv6 link-local address so the Windows "ipconfig /all" (and alike from other OSs) provide an simple way t...

IPv6 Default Router Preferences (RFC4191)

It should be very simple to add support for selecting the bits of the IPv6 RA that announce if the router have "High", "Medium" or "Low" preference for being selected as a default router for the terminals in the segment. (RFC4191 2.1 Preference values) I know VRRP could be used for that, but I think...
