Re: v6.48 [stable] is released!

m33g - added support for "/system gpio" menu (CLI only);



Could we please, please, please have the documentation for the RBM33G Header and instructions on how to trigger the gpio pins as inputs? (Pull up, pull down, resistor?, etc...)

Did I say PLEASE?

Re: RBM33G has 6 GPIO

It took over a week to get this reply. I was tempted to try to either "pull up" or "pull down" the pins but I chickened out in fear that I could cook the inputs. I was thinking about trying a 47K resistor inline from pin to ground and then vcc. Hello, Thank you for contacting Mik...

Question about Queues

Assume I have a 100Mbs wan and a 1000Mbs lan. Queues would be for the purpose of prioritizing traffic. In this scenario does it make sense to have a "down-stream" queue? If the router, the lan interfaces and lan devices can process and receive data 10 times faster than the wan interface ca...

RBM33G has 6 GPIO

Thanks to xvo, I installed version 6.48beta48. I can confirm that I am able change DIRECTION on "pin3" to output, change "OUTPUT" from 0 to 1 and read a voltage change on pin 3. I'm not going to attempt to drive the INPUT until I hear back from Mikrotik support. I suspect that a ...

That's very promising news. Thanks for that. I just emailed support asking for documentation of the IDC header pins on the RBM33G and for the documentation for the /system gpio menu.

Re: RBM33G Voltage Monitoring

For the situation a RB33G is likely to be used in I think the temperature and voltage monitoring is very desirable . I would say it's a necessity. If you aren't using all the ethernet ports you can loop back the TX and RX pairs and check for ethernet link status for your contact closure monitoring....

Re: RBM33G Voltage Monitoring

I am also using RBM33G boards for a project. I am very disappointed that there is no voltage monitoring via /system health, that there are no additional GPIO pins, and that the RTS/CTS/DTR and DSR pins are inactive on the serial ports. Additionally, there is no realistic way to write/read to the ser...

You can enable logging for any rule (log=yes, Log checkbox on Action tab in WinBox).

Re: Possible to Torch firewall rule [SOLVED]

Sindy, thanks for your reply.

Yes, one can easily see the count of packets with that command and also in Winbox.

I'm looking for a way to "torch" - see what src and dest IP address, port and protocols are being matched to the rule.

Re: Firewall rule base on connection

Thanks for that. I believe its the established state that allows this. From the MikroTik wiki: ESTABLISHED - The ESTABLISHED state has seen traffic in both directions and will then continuously match those packets. ESTABLISHED connections are fairly easy to understand.
