Re: v6.45.2 [stable] is released!

Just bricked one of our CRS switches, connected via SFP to CCR. It was a testing one, but we still need to visit the site. How could SFP support get broken, if there are no SFP related changes? I expect fix to be released asap, not just in a mysterious stable release sometimes in the future?

Re: DST NAT entry not recognised by a FW rule [SOLVED]

OK, understandable. It is just that if I do DST-NAT on hAP ac^2 even for the routed address, it does seem to work - packets are counted and if I change the destination port, it influences that. But agreed - this is not probably a correct way to do things.

While MT is not MS, Winbox usability sux. And if you need some lessons on interface usability, go and study some material on the web ;-)

WinBox usability improvements?

Hi guys, just wanted to ask, if it would be possible to bit redesign/adapt winbox for better usability? 1) and probably very cosmetic - graphs are using one red, one blue, one pixel wide lines. Why not some nicer graphs? I mean - bot rx and tx to be displayed one over each other? You can mix colors,...

Just curious - when your ISP sells you you some bandwidth, and you resell it to your customers, what actually the bandwidth is? Is that on frames level? IP level? TCP level? Because - if let's say 256kbit means 256kbit on frame level, then there is much less for the TCP and upper level. If you will ...

Hi, being back from MUM, I am now playing with the MT router in the wild, doing various tests.

At MUM, I noticed MT reps talked about 400 RB version, which should be smaller to fit in outdoor cases better and should sport Gbit ethernets. Dunno any times-frames. But - what about VIA mini-itx? We used some boards for kiosk systems, they were unstable if not supported by good RAM modules, but no...

Hi pekr, The IP scheme you have shown is correct according to the example I mentioned. In the case of your diagram you have an extra network, 10.0.1.0/24, which you would not need if the clients could act as bridges. It's not a problem, but for me it just complicates the network. I understand the l...

To route you just need to add static routes and appropriate gateways. As you can only route between different networks you will have to have a network for your customers, say 10.0.1.0/24, then a network between the CPE and the AP, say 10.0.2.0/24, then you can NAT to the public address space. I fou...

Thanks for the tip. I will probably go with EoIP, as WDS is not widely used here. We have nearly full or already full 2.4 band, not so flat area, and nobody uses it for kind of Mesh networks here. But maybe to bridge two or three radios on one RB it would do the job. As for routing, dunno how to do ...
