Re: RB450G cannot update to Level 5 - Invalid old software I

Just click "Update License Key" instead of "Update/Get New Key" because you already have the new style of key.

I just did the same thing and it worked just fine.

cheers,

VRRP: one step beyond...

Hi all, After reading the Wiki and the examples there, I end up with the example showing how to load balance over the two routers. For this to work, there are two VRRP groups that both routers are in and each one is the master for one group while being the slave for the other group. Great! In order ...

Re: RB450G with wrong license (l4 instead of l5) ??!!

Someone here mentioned that their rb450g came with v3.x l4 and got l5 after upgrading to v4.x I thought it was strange but perhaps it's true... They came with 4.5 l4 and I updated to 4.9 and they stayed l4 ... I bought these from Roc-Noc but I think all board have the license aboard already so that...

RB450G with wrong license (l4 instead of l5) ??!!

Hi,

I just bought 3 RB450G's and found they have a l4 license instead of l5. As they must support 300 concurrent hotspot users, I am in trouble.

How can this happen and how to correct it?

tnx,
Nick.

Re: OSPF - I'm too stupid

You can't filter out native routes (used on interfaces) because these are used as next-hop addresses in the routing table. It would break routing.

Re: OSPF - I'm too stupid

There is a simple way to do that, much like it is done in BGP: Set up a black hole for the /24, like a static route to a Null interface. Your normal routing will still work because you have more significant routes (higher prefix). Next, in OSPF, setup the config to redistribute static routes with a ...

Re: Problems with DNS for www.google.com

Sure looks like the same problem. What is your DNS config, which servers are you using?

Also, what does a dig/nslookup tell you about es.yahoo.es ?

Yes, DNScache is rock stable, don't hesitate to use it. On the rest: they have httpd for other routers and it's doing just fine. Even a couple of pages with stuff to download etc. is nice. no server-side stuff, no Apache. Disk: what does some USB flash cost? I have thrown these out because they were...

@jcremin: I can generally agree with our post, but don't you find it curious that you are the only one in the world that had this problem without using any OpenDNS servers?? Think!

And like I said: there's bind for windows too.

What happens if you leave out: tcp-md5-key="" Also, see if you can set the BGP version to 4. the rest looks good. But I must say that on an IX you should normally come with a Cisco or Juniper. Your peers are not going to like you much for this trouble and they might stop the peering agreements. At l...

Re: RB450 Capacitors problem?

If you can make it fit, try to get caps for a higher voltage instead of higher capacity. It could be that the original ones are a bad batch but so many?? may be at a higher voltage they never fail again. The trouble is that for a higher voltage they are bigger, so take the board to the electronics s...

How about this: connect the server to your mikrotik and give that interface an available IP address in the same subnet as the server?

Re: Problems with DNS for www.google.com

Yes, nameserver stability is great. Our freeBSD nameservers set a record of > 800 days (all of them). We took them down for upgrading to a newer version of freeBSD or they would still be running I think.

But... does anyone here have bind running on a routerboard?

Hi Rodolfo, There are two ways to do this good and which one you choose depends on who you are: an ISP or not. If you are an ISP you should have a good solid base of customers and be on good speaking terms with your upstream ISP's. If not, you should choose the other option. non-ISP: you want to mul...

Re: Problems with DNS for www.google.com

I guess times are changing and RFC are just that. One might argue that sending false information, as you put it, is what OpenDNS does for business. But that's not an a problem. The issue is that on occasion MT DNS does not resolve http://www.google.com at all (not even to "false" OpenDNS servers). ...
