Whenever my Linux client attempts to request an IPv6 address via DHCP I get the following error: nov/08 23:49:51 dhcp,debug,packet dhcp: recv server: lan fe80::2d9:d1ff:fef6:c438 -> ff02::1:2 nov/08 23:49:51 dhcp,debug,packet dhcp: type: solicit nov/08 23:49:51 dhcp,debug,packet dhcp: transaction-id...

OpenVPN?

I am following the procedure listed in https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/OpenVPN but it does not seem to be working. In my case, I am using cacert.org to create my certificate and everything seems to be working there. Note that things do not match perfectly compared to what the wiki says. For example, ...

VPN with Linux

I have been trying without success to use IPSec to connect from my Linux machine to my Mikrotik router. I have IPSec + XAuth working with my Android phone and tablet, but this configuration does not appear to work with the OpenSwan or StrongSwan network settings parameters. Has anyone been able to s...

Re: v6.41.2 [current]

Never mind. I switched to a different laptop and disabled the firewall and I was able to recover the system. I still do not know why the initial update failed. Using netinstall I was able to boot the new system and install it. This update appears to have broken an RB850GX2 router. After the update t...

Re: IPSec xauth with Linux NetworkManager

I've given up with NetworkManager and am now trying to get Strongswan to work directly but phase 1 negotiation keeps failing. I attempted to set StrongSwan to use the same rules that work with Android but phase 1 keeps failing. Any idea what could be wrong? Here's my ipsec.conf: # ipsec.conf - stron...

IPSec xauth with Linux NetworkManager

Hi all, I finally managed to get IPSec with xauth working with my Android devices after a lot of experimentation but I have been unable to get my Linux laptop to connect. One difference is that NetworkManager on my laptop insists on the group identifier field being filled out. As far as I can tell t...

PPTP is broken with Linux

I have a recent version of OpenSUSE Linux installed and am unable to get PPTP to connect. I have traced the problem down in Wireshark to the fact that the Linux client always sets the Async Control Character Map to 0x00000000 which is passed during PPP LCP negotiation. The Routerboard does no like t...

IPSec with Android fails.

I have yet to be able to successfully get IPSec to work with Android and I could really use an example. I'd like to use IPSec Xauth PSK if possible. It seems that no matter what I do I get "not acceptable Aggressive mode" followed by "couldn't find configuration" My devices are running Android 5.0/5...

Problems with IPSec and Android

Hi all, I have been struggling to get IPSec to work between my Android devices and my Mikrotik router which is now running 6.33.3. I have followed the directions on the IPSEC wiki page without any luck as well as this page: http://www.firstdigest.com/2015/01/mikrotik-l2tp-with-ipsec-for-mobile-clien...

L2TP over IPSec with Android?

I have been trying for some time to try and get L2TP to work between my Android Motorola Droid and my Mikrotik router running RouterOS 4.10 without any success. I've tried with and without IPSec. With IPSec, the IPSec layer seems to connect just fine, the problem seems to be when L2TP is trying to a...

Virtual AP not working

Hi all, I am running RouterOS 4.10 and attempted to set up a Virtual AP using the same settings as the default wlan interface but am having some problems. I have an external DHCP server and have both the WLAN and VAP interface set up as DHCP relays. The WLAN interface is configured as 192.168.1.1/24...
