DHCP relay server and disconnections

Hi all.
I'm testing to install an externa dhcp form my two mikrotik pppoe servers.
My question is: how does the external dhcp server know that a pppoe user has logged out and then the ip address must be released?
The relay send also this information to the dhcp server?

Thanks.

Re: v6.22 download traffic limit problems

It seems you mangle only the traffic generated from IP belonging to the PPPoE-100M-list address list.
If so, you mark only upload traffic.
Have you evauated the possibility to add a rate-limit directly to the pppoe profiles ignoring mangle and queue?
In this case queues are dinamically created.

the best is a radio directly connecxted to antenna.
you can have at maximum 1 meter (or 2) of lmr400 cable. with good quality pigtail and N connectors you lost "only" 3db (the half of the power!).
you can place radio at the bottom of the tower using waveguide but it is very expensive.

Re: SSIDs -- same or different?

same ssid pros:
- if one sector goes down, users could connect to other two
same ssid cons:
- after some days you can find all user connectd to only one sector

Re: OSPF - ethernet disable-running-check

why does you want to propagate the route also if the client is diconnected ?
and why create a loopback bridge is a bad solution ?

correct pratice to set dial-on-demand pppoe ?

Hi all.
I need to set my pppoe user to disconnect if idle for more than 3 minutes.
The correct configuration is:
1. assign pppoe server to a profile A
2. set in profile A: idle-timeout=3min
3. set in pppoe client dial-on-demand=yes

Is this correct ?

thanks

does disabling Forward but brdging isolate users?

Hi all.
In one access point rb433ah, I have two wlans.
In each wlan I have Forward=off then users are isolated at L2 one each other.
If I bridge the two wlans, is also true that users of wlan1 are isolated at L2 by users at wlan2 ?

Prblem in signal strength N,nv2

Hi all.
I have a 20km link, two 29dbi dish antennas, rb411ah, r52N.
I set bridge-station, antenna gain 0 in the two side.
I have this signal:

What can cause the signals asymmetry in the two chains ?
Normally, signal must be symmetrics ?
