Re: BGP - Network not being advertised.

Synchronize allows you to only advertise a route when your iBGP or OSPF actually knows how to route it. There are a number of scenarios in which this makes sense. Most recently I used this when building some failover routes. Two routers connect to an upstream and have different paths (multiple routi...

Re: CoA in userman 5.12 to change rate-limit

Hi there. We don't make use of usermanager - rather we have our own external RADIUS servers. In the case of the Mikrotik we invariable rather send a PoD as that works. On reconnection the user is then in the appropriate package. On Cisco's CoA works - same code on the Mikrotik's doesn't seem too hap...

Re: BGP Question

Hi, A /21 is simply 8 /24 subnets aggregated. As such splitting this to specific providers is simply a matter of bgp filters for the relevant providers. Setup a BGP session to each provider. Add all the /24's to your bgp networks. Setup filters for the specific /24's you want to announce to each of ...

Re: BGP Filter

Another option would be to use a jump rule.

This could allow you to centrally manage the rules you want while still having a number of individual rules per peer. We use this for our bogon and transit vs peering announces.

Re: Stuck Routes on Route Cache

Hi, This specific bug is causing some frustrations for me as well. It appears that the stale route remains in cache for as long as any IP sessions are trying to make use of the path. In this regard think of any TCP connections that might need to time out etc - the route could therefore stay in cache...

Re: BGP Default route propagation

Default route is propagated if default-originate parameter is set. The same behavior as cisco. Hi mrz, Actually, that's not correct - in the Mikrotik case you 'originate' - you do NOT propagate the existing default route. As such the ASPATH and community information does not propagate. In addition,...

BGP Default route propagation

Hi Guys. We're using only BGP on a number of networks (both eBGP and iBGP). One of the recurrent issues we have is that default route cannot be propagated - are we seriously the only people that miss this feature? I'm really not in the mood for deploying more Cisco's at the edge ;-) Thoughts anyone? R

Re: Stop counting quota / data limits for updates of OS or A

Hi, You are referring to an ability to not account specific source/destination IP ranges - a feature many of us in the ISP space are looking for. Cisco's ISG funcationality can do that - and much more. I've requested this sort of feature capability before but don't expect it any time soon as there i...

Re: LLDP

and what will this give over existing /ip neighbors and /ipv6 neighbors coupled with, for exmaple, dude monitoring of the network? It looks more like something will be left to dust with no real use. Sadly, it looks the same as with scsi drives - everyone needed it and still there is no response if ...

Re: SCSI and SAS support in RouterOS

All we can do, is include the standard driver. If it doesn't work, we can't do much.
Hi normis.

Based on a quick count from everyony posting in this thread I'd say the next driver for inclusion should likely be the cciss driver.

I have hardware on hand to test that with.
