Re: Port Forwarding Problem

None of the rules work to that device 10.1.1.2. And I did export all of the rules in the code below. This is what I did: /ip firewall export file=firewall-config That should have gotten everything. Do I need an accept rule? The weird thing is that the other VNC server seems to work. I assume it work...

Port Forwarding Problem

This should be a simple problem. I've been pounding my head against it for a couple of weeks. Hopefully someone here can spot my mistake and help me out. I'm trying to forward port 80 (http) and 23 (telnet) from the external WAN interface through to an internal IP (10.1.1.2). I have port forwarding ...

Re-match: XR5 vs F50-Pro

All: I am a long time user of the XR5 cards from Ubiquiti. I have recently come across the F50-Pro from DBii. My Google-ing of the topic shows forum posts of people saying "just ask Ubiquiti or DBii which is best." Amusing. I am interested in the DBii F50-Pro card because the cost is about 57% less ...

Re: Help with retrieving /interface/wireless > scan data

bburley:

Thanks for the script and the intro to Tera Term. I used your script and it does need a few tweaks. It has the same flaw that I am already dealing with which is that I am wanting to run the script from across the wireless link and the scan command cuts the wireless link.

Re: Help with retrieving /interface/wireless > scan data

Do we have to write our own scan script?

(i.e. foreach value in scanlist, do something really smart and dump it to a file or variable / when finished grab it in the dude or via ssh or push it via syslog)

I have tried:

What about storing the value of the output to a variable that stays resident in the radio? That could be called from a script call from The Dude?

Get the file off the CPE radio onto a file server (or input into a database). 5. Analyze the output for frequency conflicts, ...

Re: Migration from bridged network to OSPF

Just a quick point of clarification. Does an OSPF area fill out all of a broadcast/collision domain? From what I am reading, I see that OSPF likely does not want two areas sharing the same broadcast domain. And in that sense, I want to route between each of the three routers in my drawing, so does t...

Re: Migration from bridged network to OSPF

How about the CPE radios? Do they go into the backbone area too? Here's how I see them working. 1. The CPE radio powers up. 2. It makes a DHCP request for its wlan1 interface. 3. It makes a PPPoE request (of a local radius/PPPoE server) for an IP block for its ether1 interface. 4. It injects that cu...
