Re: How to prioritize all OSPF traffic?

So, queue trees then. And yes, I am fully aware that to prioritize all OSPF traffic I've got to do this on both devices, as each mikrotik can only actually control its own outbound packets. As a test example, say that I've got one of two links between the devices paired on their matching "sfp-s...

Re: How to prioritize all OSPF traffic?

/ip firewall mangle add action=mark-packet chain=output comment="Mark OSPF" new-packet-mark=OSPF passthrough=no protocol=ospf If you are going "out" a vlan interface, you may want to set COS priority and to do so: /ip firewall mangle add action=set-priority chain=output comment=...

How to prioritize all OSPF traffic?

We are setting up a network, using mpls/vpls/ospf to link the devices. As the connections are all over wireless links, link connectivity/uptime is not nearly as guaranteed as wired connections, so the mpls failovers need to be pretty robust. But of course, regular network traffic can overwhelm the d...

Re: Trouble with vlan & routing

Thank you so much for your help. It was definitely a MUCH better experience here than the "hurr hurr hurr learn how to internetz dude" one I had on Reddit. But I'll at least be able to update my post there with the pair of fixes required to make it work. (Because SOME day somebody else wil...

Re: Trouble with vlan & routing

I will be able to continue work on Monday. In the meantime, your explanation does NOT explain why the config does indeed work when it’s a non-router connecting to the switch’s ports, the dhcp query fully works in that case. The dhcp only fails when it’s a router (Mikrotik, D-Link, etc) connecting to...

Trouble with vlan & routing

Update: FIXED. Entries in the config that were removed are now commented out in the main post. Our end-goal is to be able to rate-limit all the individual ports on a switch, so that our customer's tenants can better share bandwidth. I THOUGHT I had it working well, but ran into a major wrinkle once ...

Re: snmp not working on mikrotik device with a pppoe connection

Some additional info, my end-goal is to be able to monitor/manage this problematic device via The Dude. This (apparently because of the pppoe link and the resulting problems with the snmp) is currently not working for us.

snmp not working on mikrotik device with a pppoe connection

Solved: As a not-exactly-expert in Mikrotik, it didn't quite occur to me that I had to manually enable "snmp" TWICE: once for the community I'd added, and once again for SNMP entirely. Generally other networking devices are much simpler: enable/disable SNMP in one single spot, and have a (...

Re: Route all and/or specific traffic to a VPN

Routing traffic for a specific destination over the VPN is definitely much easier. After creating the VPN tunnel between two Mikrotik routers, it was a two-more step process: /ip firewall nat add action=masquerade chain=srcnat ipsec-policy=out,none out-interface=NAME-OF-L2TP-INTERFACE /ip route add ...

Route all and/or specific traffic to a VPN

I am fairly new to Mikrotik. I'm generally more comfortable working on a command-line than on any webby clicky interface. A customer has a webapp hosted on a specific ip address x.x.x.x ; This is a public ip address, not an internal/private one. They also have multiple offices, none of which have st...
