Re: Slow Gbit speed with Mikrotik hex S

FYI: You're reading the block diagram wrong. The Hex S is capable of routing a full gigabit one way even on ports which use the same path to the CPU. Each of the two gigabit CPU links is 1 Gbps in and 1 Gbps out. You only need to use ports which are on separate links if you want to route a gigabit i...

Re: single IP constantly trying to log to my Mikrotik

The point was I understand about the order of firewall rules and efficiency of checking packets. What I was questioning and wanted to see a reference about was this line........... " Things like tracked connections (and also address lists) are stored in a clever way so the match can be made more qu...

Re: single IP constantly trying to log to my Mikrotik

@Emil66 It's a forum for technical assistance. Don't be offended when you "waltz in" post "some gut feelings and expectations" without any substations, and someone reacts on that... Your opinions are incorrect. This thread could have been over when vecernik87 correctly informed you about the purpos...

Re: single IP constantly trying to log to my Mikrotik

looking for a reference that the router processes filter rules of accepted/related more efficiently than other firewall filter rules in general and specifically better than raw rules. Nobody said anything like that. Each rule that needs to be checked takes some time, When processing a packet that b...

Re: single IP constantly trying to log to my Mikrotik

I asked for factual info & data, not some gut feelings and expectations! The Linux kernel code is open source. You can look it up yourself. This is the Mikrotik Beginner Basics forum, not a technical debate club. ...to pass many rules before they are accepted, the CPU load will be high... Can you p...

Re: single IP constantly trying to log to my Mikrotik

I wouldn't advise to use raw-prerouting rule. It might have negative impact on speed of all (including fasttracked) connections. ... it will have more negative, than positive consequences because ... This is based on what factual info / data? It a rule base system like any other table (filter,nat,m...

Re: [Feature Request] IPv6 Fasttrack

I was not aware that any Mikrotik Products supported DS-Lite, please explain how you support this. They don't support DS-Lite. But DS-Lite is just native IPv6 with an IPIPv6 tunnel to a CGNAT gateway for IPv4. Mikrotik routers can do the tunneling, but lack the automatic configuration and the neces...

[Feature Request] IPv6 Fasttrack

I was led to believe that the Hex S (RB760IGS) achieves full gigabit throughput. This is not the case with IPv6. Due to the lack of IPv6 fasttrack support, IPv6 throughput maxes out at roughly 500 Mbit/s. That alone is bad enough, but on a DS-Lite connection, IPv4 is tunneled via IPv6, so even IPv4 ...

[Feature Request] DHCP(v4/v6) client: Make arbitrary option codes requestable and provide their values to the script

Motivation: The DHCP server in Mikrotik routers can be configured to supply arbitrary options to clients, and the DHCP client in Mikrotik routers can be configured to add arbitrary options too, but the DHCP client has no method of requesting arbitrary options from the server and does not make values...

DS-Lite (RFC 6333 + RFC 6334)

I'm trying to configure a Mikrotik router to use a DS-Lite (dual stack lite) internet connection as defined in RFCs 6333 and 6334 . DS-Lite combines a native IPv6 connection with a IPIPv6 tunnel to a CGNAT gateway called AFTR (Address Family Transition Router). The router learns the remote tunnel en...

Re: Bug in default configuration

This is already the case in default configuration.. Indeed it is. I dug a little deeper, and while the default configuration has the addresses on the bridge, applying the configuration from the "Quick Set" form moves the addresses over to ether2, even if all I change is the password. So the bug is ...

Bug in default configuration

Disclaimer: I am an absolute beginner. Got my first Mikrotik router today. Nevertheless, I think there's a problem in the default configuration, but as I'm new to this, I'm not sure. Please enlighten me if this is my mistake. In the default configuration, ports 2 through 5 and the SFP slot are in a ...
