Export PPP Secrets for Radius Import

I have CCR with 750 secrets that I want to export so that I can start using Radius Server.

I need a way to consistently export secret data with only the following variables "USERNAME" ; "PASSWORD" ; "PROFILE" ; "REMOTE ADDRESS"

How can I create a txt file in such a format?

Best Config to connect to WiFi AP as a bridge

What is the proper way to config a MikroTik for connecting to a standard AP that most likely does not have WDS. I know when setting up for a MikroTik AP, we use station WDS, but I am not sure what to use without WDS. Note ether1 and wlan1 are bridged and no routing is done on the RB, it is simply a ...

Re: Log ARP Entries for given IP

Thank you very much. Looks like the examples will work perfectly.

Very powerful for such limited amounts of code!

Re: Simple Queues Does not work in 3.14 !!!!!!!!!!

Under /system packages I selected "Uninstall" and then rebooted the PC, but it is still installed? Do I have to do a shutdown? Can I just "Disable" it and reboot? I only have remote access at the moment.

Re: HELP! RB600 Port Stops Responding

PC Has been running flawlessly. I have to assume it is RB600 related. Don't have time to experiment with it any further. Going to leave it on the shelf or trade it for an RB433AH. (Can't afford the 1000U)

Log ARP Entries for given IP

Totally new to MikroTik scripting. :( I need to log any changes in the ARP table for a given IP. In otherwise if the MAC address of IP 192.168.1.1 changes, print it to a log file. Or if it is anything other than 00:00:00:AA:BB:CC log it. The reason I need this is I suspect a device on my network is ...

Catch Gateway IP Theif?

I believe I have a client trying to use the IP of my gateway router. Is there a way to log each change in the ARP table for a specific IP. I need to know what MAC address is attempting to use the IP of my gateway router. The only evidence that anyone is trying to use the gateway IP is that pings to ...

Do we still have the problem with 3.17? I have 3.17 X86 and XEN was installed by default and Simple Queues are not working. Do I need to remove XEN?

DUDE on RB450 for 5 Class Cs?

Is an RB450 powerful enough to be used as a Dude server for 5 Class C networks? It would be installed at the gateway and monitor aprox 500+ IPs? This is for a WISP setup.

If not, which RB could do this or what PC config would be adequate?

Re: HELP! RB600 Port Stops Responding

Bad News. Port 2 dropped all incoming traffic once again and required reboot to resolve it.

Going to prepare a P4 PC with 3.13 and see if the same problem persists with my config. Should help me decide if it is the RB600 or the ROS that has issues.

Re: HELP! RB600 Port Stops Responding

So far so good... knock on wood!

Up 1d 18h since reboot with no lockup using 2.18 Firm and 3.13 ROS.

See we now have 3.17 as stable download... tempted to give it a try and add back queues etc?

Re: HELP! RB600 Port Stops Responding

UPDATE. Despite having removed queues, a port has locked up once again. This time it was port 3 rather than port 2.

I had uploaded 2.18 file and now since the RB600 locked again, I was forced to restart and am now running 2.18 firmware.

Will see if 2.18 is any better.

Re: HELP! RB600 Port Stops Responding

I was using 5 Simple PCQ queues and after reading another thread decided to remove all simple queues. So far, no lock up, but it is still early to point the finger at PCQs. Will report back later.

Re: HELP! RB600 Port Stops Responding

Allready have 2.16. On previous RB600 I tried 3.16 and seemed to have more problems than 3.13?
routerboard: yes
model: "600A"
current-firmware: "2.16"
upgrade-firmware: "2.16"
Let me know if 3.16 helps you!

I have an RB600 with OS 3.13. For unknown reasons, all traffic to port 2 stops intermittently. I can not even ping the IP of that port when conected to it, however I can ping it's IP from both port 1 and 3. Sometimes the problems corrects itself and traffic starts to flow on it's own, other times, a...
