OSPF and Radius behavour

Hi all We have deployed OSPF on all of our routers with a loopback address assigned to an empty bridge but when the unit sends an access request to the radius server, the source IP address is the interface it exited on and not the loopback address assigned to the box. This is not a big problem until...

Re: Problem with Hotspot and Apple products

Thanks aoakeley for your post.

We do not have any DNS resolving locally for security. Everything points to google public DNS. The only way to reach the hotspot is via IP address. Could this be the problem?

Thanks

Re: MT Base > Ubnt CPE reassociating issue

Hi Deac and thanks for the advice

Device is now updated to 5.5.4 but still suffers the same issue

I did notice it was using WPA2 AES so i downgraded it to WPA AES but this has not stopped the drops.

Is there anything else that can be changed to stabilize the link?

In radiusmanager when you added the new NAS did you hit "restart radius server" under tools?

Re: Very high cpu usage with 20+ sstp clients

I have the exact same issue on a RB1100AH with 6/7 clients. ROS 5.19 AND ROS 5.20

MT confirm its a bug and will be fixed next release. Can you get away with using L2TP/PPTP? We have to use SSTP because one of our cable providers blocks the other 2!

Best of luck
