Why does adding a simple queue to the END of the chain with a target address of 0.0.0.0/0 or simply no target address seem to shape ALL traffic, INCLUDING traffic that is targeted by IP in the chain above it? In my experience, it doesn't. My first implementation of MT was to create an MT replacemen...

Another important consideration of Simple Queues is that traffic that does not find a rule match among the simple queues is uneffected, and unlimited by any simple queue. Its kinda like having an unwritten final Firewall rule that says "everything-allow". The "default" is unlimited... Unless you spe...

my understanding of and experience with Simple Queues is that they do process packets in the chain order. So, if you have a simple queue for each assigned IP, you would just have a final (last) simple queue covering the entire subnet with your desired default speed. I have one situation where that i...

The documentation is "interesting" :roll: I frequently find the Wiki to contain the missing link between the docs (devoid of any application examples) and some actual real world application examples, and some discussion of the meaning of ...

RB112 Serial Console Problem

The seemingly simple goal is to connect to a RB112 2.9.40 via the serial port. I lost ethernet communication with it during initial config. Only the blue LED is lit. So, I thought I would try a net install. 115200bit/s, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity, hardware flow control. From the Serial Conso...

yes, the "server" needs to the IP address of an available SMTP server that will accept an SMTP connection from the machine running the Dude. And, of course it would also require that any intervening firewalls, routers, etc, between the SMTP server and the machine hosting the Dude must allow the SMTP...

snmp would be wonderful :-)
