Re: Hotspot HttpProxy Problem: 401 Unauthorized

Since this reply comes from the built-in Squid Cache in Mikrotik, it seems to be related to ACL configuration. Is there any way to change the ACL list of Mikrotik's Squid? If so, how?
Thx

Hello! I read the manual and searched the forum, but to no avail. I have a hotspot setup that works well. Now I would like to limit certain hotspot users based on their traffic.

I like using the graphing feature of MT 2.9.x - it's a very nice tool, especially its ability to store historical data. However, every time I reboot the router, I loose the interface graphics for my WANs and LAN, and the graphs start anew again. The "store on disk" option is checked (on winbox), and...

tip: In order to work you have to bind a secondary IP for emule and limit that IP.
What do you mean by "secondary IP"? Don't we use the "target IP" of the client to limit his/her bandwidth?

One way to do this is to separate the MSN traffic from the main bandwidth queue. You can mangle the MSN traffic and give it its own low bandwitdh allocation. That way, if the user is using up their own bandwidth that is allocated to them, there will still be a little bandwidth available for MSN traf...
