Re: Missing plugin for Winbox

@Normis you should have mentioned that newer versions of Dude does not have Winbox, which is strange as they are using port 8291 (unless the installation of Winbox on dude is hidden!)
I had to go back to V4.beta3 and simply added via "tools" winbox exe path this solves "missing plugin for winbox"

When getting one firewall in front of the pair, keep in mind that you add another SPOF (unless you deploy a HA cluster of at least two devices) and you certainly add another layer of complexity. ........................... I agree it's another single point of failure but i gues...

Re: Firewall software or hardware

As it stands I believe that the firewall settings have to duplicated on both CCR's and if not done then there is no failover, so I thought have a hardware firewall in front of the CCR's,

Re: PPPoE server at tower OSPF + L2 Bridged

Main advantage is spreading your risk to have a pppoe server at every pop. Second advantage is that not one router is doing all queues/firewall/natting for all clients. Sounds good the advantage but by having the PPPoE at the tower does it mean that traffic must transverse the network to PPPoE serv...

Re: Broadcast storm prevention

If you have loops, enable xSTP
(1) How can I test if I have loops?

Broadcast storm prevention

Has anyone got suggestions or recommendations on best practice to reduce or prevent broadcast storm on a L2 bridged network, each Vlan has it's interfaces connected to a separate bridge ?

PPPoE server at tower OSPF + L2 Bridged

As a WISP can I ask what is the advantages/ disadvantages of having PPPoE server at each tower when running
(1) OSPF

Re: Combination of Static Routing and Dynamic!

@Anumrak
Thanks for your reply!
On re-reading my question I will have to rephrase,
Static routing for L2 bridged and Dynamic for OSPF, I want the options that if static routing is unreachable that OSPF dynamic routing will take over until static is reachable?

Winbox - save preferred layout?

In Winbox is it possible to save a preferred layout rather than having to use to default layout - for example I want to add in routing ospf neighbor display "State" and "Adjacency" and save this layout?

Combination of Static Routing and Dynamic!

For a network that was OSPF + MPLS + VPLS and now L2 bridged and PPPoE using Vlans for public ip's ! - OSPF is now used for management
Can static routes co exist with dynamic routes coming from OSPF?
