Re: Core DHCP-RADIUS / MPLS/VPLS+VLAN

I created a dhcp-client script that reads option 43 from DHCP and converts it from "ip:speed" to the corresponding loopback ip for the loopback interface and ospf router-id and the speed gets applied to the queue. You could use "ip:vlan" and have the script apply the vlan tag. I had to stop using ra...

Re: DHCP+Radius fun [SOLVED]

In case anyone has this problem, my solution was to send the Session-Timeout as a uint32 instead of a string. This also seems to have solved the problem of lease renewals re-authenticating.

Winbox Batch Commands

I use the Safe Mode feature all the time. There should be a reverse version where the settings made in winbox don't get applied until you disable that mode It would be awesome if there was a feature that allowed you to enable like "batch" mode, but instead of applying all the settings immediately, i...

10G support for Traffic Engineering

We've been running traffic-engineering based bandwidth limits for at least 5 years. Now that we have 10G interfaces, the 32bit limitation, or whatever the problem, is requiring us to look for different solutions for limiting vpls connections. In traffic engineering, the highest value i can accuratel...

Re: Bottleneck on CCR (possible queue related)

I'm pretty sure we are running into this issue as well on a CCR1072. Bursting up to 3.4gbps using the default mq-ethernet-default settings. Customers are getting really randomly fluctuating speedtests. Going to try increasing the buffer size during the next maintenance window. All of our traffic is ...

add site-id to dynamic vpls interface name

When using BGP-VPLS, it would be a lot easier to differentiate each connection if they were somehow labeled with the site-id of the router they are connected to.


Thanks!

DHCP+Radius fun [SOLVED]

We setup a Radius server that responds to the Mikrotik DHCP server. If the mac is not in the "allowed" list on the Radius server, it responds with a different ip pool. The allowed mac addresses get a bandwidth limit for dynamic queueing and the "unauthorized" devices get redirected to a web page to ...
