vlan 1 is tagged or untagged on your Cisco? It will egress eth1 tagged.

Ping from Winbox is an easy test.

Re: 450G port ethernet 4 no led no link

I have seen an RB450G with a single bad port.

I didn't need all 5, so I used it anyway.

In my case it was port 3.

Your laptop works fine on the other 4 ports?

Re: Making trunk port and access port on 750G

I've never used the 750G, does it have support for the switch chip?

Re: Netwatch failures

Try adding static ARP entries on RB450G for both RB250G.
EDIT: 100+ hours and no failures.

This seems to be working. 12 hours and no netwatch failures.

Is this a bug in SwOS?

Re: SwOS version 1.2 released!

I think it's much quicker to apply a few checkboxes than to edit a text file in hex. If you really want, you can make some 10-20 standard configuration backup files and then just upload them. Much quicker than editing. (I don't think anyone wants to edit a hex file, although I have used Hex Worksho...

Re: trouble with mangle

In the post I left above is a wiki article with some examples. Also in that wiki are links (at the top) to where you can find the L7 regex expressions and a MT script that imports these into the firewall. I don't know if the script is kept up to date - I doubt it. But it is easy enough to make a PHP...

Re: SwOS version 1.2 released!

Are there plans to make SWOs access via telnet or ssh? I second this request. My wish list is: telnet/ssh text based config that can be read and edited by field techs "winbox-like" interface If it costs $5 more because you have to add some memory, it is worth it. I will spend more than $5 on config...

Re: trouble with mangle

@fewi I never suggested blacklisting was the answer, nor is philosophy. [I think the glass is neither half empty nor half full. You can't measure that precisely] If a network has serious traffic issues, all tools must be considered. Prioritize the protocols that are important. They don't change - HT...

Re: Need Help in winbox

Are you trying to change the default web interface presented by ROS?

You can't, from what I can tell.
But it would be a nice feature.

You could always try to get a metarouter to run a webserver.

Re: Can't get VLAN scenario to work in 1.2

When you say the trunk does not pass transparently, are you referring to vlan tagged traffic destined for the next switch? What traffic is not passing and how do you know? If you have more VLANs downstream than are shown in the VLANs tab you posted, they all need to be config'd in the first switch. ...

Port1.....Port 2.....Port3.....Port4.....Port5 Trunk....Trunk......VLANx....VLANy....VLANz Make sure all the vlans are defined on the VLANs tab and the ports checked in.

Re: Login page slow loading

All unauthenticated users are going to fall into the queue dynamically created based on the rate-limit values that are set on the Hotspot server profile. If that is set to a very low speed a resource intensive page would load slowly. Are you saying the "Rate Limit (rx/tx)" drop down on the Hotspot ...

We can give you 30 SwOS licenses :) But you won't be able to use them, because SwOS is free of charge on all RouterBOARD switch products. Don't you mean to say: "You won't be able to use them due to all these problems?" ;) OUCH....that hurts. Seriously, does anyone want me to packet capture this? I...

Is there any NAT configured in this setup? No NAT. I manage the switches via vlan30 which is assigned to the RB450G port and has its own bridge with ip address 10.20.2.1/24.
