Re: RB133 Netinstall problem (trying bootp protocol... faile

What I notice is that there is no activity on the ethernet connection. A few packets are sent, but none are received.

I have checked the firewall, but it's not blocking Netinstall.

thanks, but how do I do that?

It just hangs when it gets to this point... how do I send the data file across?

RB133 Netinstall problem (trying bootp protocol... failed)

The routerboard was running ROS 2.9.50. I tried updating it to v3.30 via LAN cable but it failed and I've been unable to access it ever since.

Re: /IP Firewall - Which Input ports should NOT be blocked

Thanks,

That's everything I wanted to know. I was just worried about causing disruptions and possibly locking myself out of the router... :mrgreen:

/IP Firewall - Which Input ports should NOT be blocked

I want to create an "Input" firewall rule that blocks all ports on the RB except for the ones that are needed for normal operation of the network, hotspot logins and admin access etc. e.g. I will add these ports to an address list and then block all ports that are not on the list. Q: Is this a good ...

/log print question

I'm trying to copy the log but am having a few problems When I click "log" in winbox I see some entries between 15:10 and 18:54. But when I do a "/log print" those entries are missing. I've set log lines to 2000, could this be affecting it somehow? Also, how do I print the whole log and can I save i...

Re: RB loses all wireless connections on all interfaces

Okay. Switching one of the interfaces onto a different frequency did improve CCQ for APs linked to that interface and the problem has not reoccurred in its entirety... yet. However, I still continue to experience problems, as the RB seems to be disconnecting APs at random for minutes on end. e.g One...

Re: RB loses all wireless connections on all interfaces

It works fine most of the time, so probably is not damaged then.

I'm going to try changing one of the interfaces to a different frequency today, to see if it solves the problem. Will update later.

Many thanks,

Re: RB loses all wireless connections on all interfaces

I'm not aware of any interference in the area and all but two of the 9 APs that connect to this base station (RB532) have good signal and CCQ. My RADIUS server runs on a RB750G which is connected to the RB532. At the same time that this happens, my PC's firewall alerts me to Port Scanning attacks or...

It happened again at almost the exact same time as it did yesterday.

Thanks guys. I've set the timeout to 6 hours as recommended and have scheduled the calea and gps packages to be disabled on next reboot.

It just happened again, only this time it carried on for about 30 minutes. No one, including myself was able to log in and in the end I had to pull the plug out to get it to restart. This is very frustrating and I'm losing customers as a result. Does anyone have an idea what it could be, or where I ...

CPU stuck at 100%

I'm having a problem with the RB532 (RouterOS 4.5) at my base station. The CPU will sometimes jump to 100% and might stay that way for a few seconds or for minutes on end. It happens at irregular intervals as well. There was not a lot of traffic when I took this screen shot at 6:45AM this morning. O...

Re: User Manager Feature request - sticky please?

Can the user manager log be kept in a separate file, visible in Winbox's file list, that can then be easily deleted. Deleting hundreds of thousands of entries with the methods described on this forum takes forever and is extremely unfunny. :?

I've tried all the methods mentioned above. None of them work. The CPU sits at 100% for hours, no one can log in (RADIUS server not responding) and when I finally abort the script, I find that absolutely nothing, not even 1 log entry has been deleted. The only way I've managed to delete them is via ...
