Re: RouterOS v6.26!

Is there a version of firmware in the 6.x line that seems to be "somewhat stable"? Currently we are using a mess of firmwares, and I just want everything to be the same. Is there one version that is semi-reliable? We do a lot of PPPoE, RADIUS, OSPF, BGP, IPSEC, L2TP, DHCP. No VLAN, no Wireless, no ...

Re: Port forwards only work inside?

firewall rules should be on FORWARD chain not on INPUT . think, that INPUT is for traffic destined to router itself, while FORWARD is for transit. yes, NATed traffis is also "in transit". :) so, you have to enable those rules ##7-9. otherwise - i (personally) feel frustrated with DST-NAT rules witho...

Re: Port mapping with WebFig 5.25

hi! for me it looks, that your rule lacks either dst-address or in-interface. otherwise it requests that ANY traffic passing through your router (to port 808) needs to be NATed. also, are you checking if the rule works from outside of the network or from inside ? as far as i know, NAT is done "on th...

Re: RB2011UAS-2HnD-IN fiber tranceivers problem

For those that are in the same boat as me, I publish the reply I received from Mikrotik support. the problem that you ran into is that your ISP switch supports only 100Base 155M SFP transceivers (as he already explained to you) but our RB2011 can use only 1000Base 1.25G Gigabit ethernet SFP transce...

Re: Double QoS for v6 is possible

you just mark necessary address-list in Mangle, then set packet-mark in Simple Queue
Yes of course. But wouldn't be better to not have mangle rules at all? Simpler configuration.
however, it makes the rules itselve "a bit" harder to implement. and, less transparent.

Re: v6 rc7 released

This conversion should help when dealing with RouterOS:

Beta = Alpha
RC though x.16 = Beta
.16 and higher = Stable

I never deploy a new RouterOS release unless I absolutely have to, and always test the features I use on VM's before deploying it.
i just wander, if you do feel that it is right ?

Re: Monitoring ???

explorer, oper, mozilla... choose your favorite graphical browser. anything starting with an old netscape will do.

of course, you could use more sophisticated apoproach, like SNMP monitoring, or setting up an MT dude somewhere.. but for monitoring 1 single appliance it would be an overkill.

Re: Graphs not showing up.

author: ain't you falling through that transparent proxy on the board ?
try adding 127.0.0.1 or the IP of proxy to allowed sources.

also, try to create rule that keeps http requests to the router itself not falling into transparent proxy.
