The extension rif is not allowed.
you can just change the filename to ._if, or .txt or something else perhaps?

so lets get this straight: if you disable the mangle rule you show above, then msn works. when you enable it, doesn't work.

What kind of power rating for the 24v supply? RB450 needs probably 8 watts at least - if your 24v power supply delivers less than 300mA, then it may not be able to supply enough juice to power your router.

Re: hotspot redirect still a problem?

hey! I just discovered something! :) Part of our standard load is to have a dhcp client attached to the internet interface. I discovered that when the problem shows up, the dhcp client did NOT pick up a default route. I checked the dhcp client settings, but the "add default route" was correctly set....

Re: hotspot redirect still a problem?

Hi Folks, just putting in my 2c worth. I'm back here again with a RB/433 with v3.13 on the bench behaving badly. Just to clarify, we have hotspot enabled, the login page is set to redirect to a remote splash page allowed through walled garden. The unauthenticated client successfuly gets the local lo...

Re: hotspot redirect blocked by mt proxy

oh! just one minor step!? you are right, of course, I did mis-read that post. Our latest batch of rb433 came with 3.4 which was terribly buggy, and upgrade to 3.10 fixed much of that. I didn't even think to try to go back to 3.9 ;-) Thanks, I must give that a shot (so long as I can lay my hands on a...

Re: hotspot redirect blocked by mt proxy

I find the easiest way to fix the lockup you have mentioned is to just downgrade or updgrade 1 version. I've been switching between 3.10 and 3.9 for the moment each time the issue occurs (as you noted a simple reboot won't fix this) That is all very well in most cases, but all of our current sites ...

Hi Folks, we saw this problem recently with rOS3.10 and found a work around with assistance of MT suppt is to use a fully qualified hostname as the login host. under ip->hotspot->profile->hsprof1 we had dns-name = "login.hotspot" changing this to dns-name="login.hotspot.com.au" fixed the problem and...

Re: Limitting bandwith after download limit is reach - How to?

Hi,

you need to use a radius server to do this, else subscribe to some admin application service like this one: http://www.viewbankrise.net.au/webministrator.htm

N+streme manages hidden node problem?

Hello folks,

I have been reading up on the routerOS 'N-Streme' protocol but still not quite certain about the intent and/or capabilities.

Can someone confirm if i am correct to assume that n-streme 'client polling' is some kind of token management system?

I want to rate limit hotspot users but Ascend-Data-Rate apparently only sets "Max-Limit" queues.

Is there some way i can also set "Limit-At" to define a more strict rate for connected users?

I swapped out that netgear 54g card for an older 11b, and now it all works fine again.

I assume that there was some driver problem with that card - it loaded up as atheros, but i suppose it was no good.
