Re: v3.20 Bug Or Hardware failure

It was my suspicion that it was the ROS version as im pretty sure i did not have this issue before.

I have however upgraded about 20 boards and this is the first to have such issues.


What could possibly have changed so greately that a bios update is needed!!!!?

I can think of a range of things that you could do if ROS supported Bluetooth!

Re: Web proxy https bug?

Found a temporary work around for the https issue.

We now have to rely on Proxy auto configuration scripts to set the SSL proxy in users browsers to the upstream proxy server the MT itself uses. (in turn bypassing MT) and ONLY using MT for simple http.

Re: New Version, New Bugs - RIP Bugs

Well it could be more specifically RIP redistributing OSPF routes thats the issue with me.

i have 5 core routers on a LAN that use RIP v1.
Then one of these routers happens to be a MT unit that then inturn redistributes rip routes via ospf to our wireless network and vice versa.

New Version, New Bugs - RIP Bugs

Just upgraded to v3.8 to fix current routing and web-proxy issues.

Well now it's worse. RIP has a tendancy to only replicate some routes causing network to break.
Enabling and disabling causes routes to replicate for short while then ROS removes them once more.

Back to V3.7 and alls working.
