NTP server with 4.16 x86 on server chassis

NOTE: Reported to support, so spare your typing fingers asking. I built up a new server x86 4.16. Set up NTP, first as client to asia.pool.ntp.org and then the server. This is a fresh install. All client Mikrotiks on this NTP server report corrupt packets. If I move them to another subnet and anothe...

Re: Winbox on Linux?

OK, this might be a dumb question, Mikrotik, but why not post the source code, then anyone who wants it for Linux can compile it for their individual Linux package?

If you are already giving it away, why not let us compile it for ourselves?

Thanks!

Re: can 450g handle 300 hotspot user with 30mbps

Hello friend, In theory, at least, the 450G should be able to handle that. CAVEAT If you try to add many firewall rules, L7 filtering and/or mangle, this loads the CPU greatly and you may find yourself bogged down. I use 450Gs with heavy filtering, mangle and L7 rules. The largest group I have on th...

Re: Dude 3.6 with Routerboard RB-450G and ROS 4.6

Just for the record: I can't make it work on 4.9 either. :(
