Re: acces internal webserver over public ip from internal lan

I have a similar but different problem. I have four interfaces on my firewall, the address range 192.168.2.0/24 is my DMZ with 8 servers in it. If I come in from any of the other 3 interfaces I can get to my webservers via the nat. http://www.example.com will resolve EXT IP. --> Internal IP 192.168....

Re: Dude 3.0 beta7 service hangs/stop monitoring

Hey Guys same issue, wouldn't switch back to Nagios though, too much hassle ( I know it's come along way) but I like the dude. It's important to remember that the "b" = Beta. However, would be nice ot have some more feedback from the Mikrotik Guys, I'm gonna try not running it as a service as well a...

Re: Spambots

I've run it on my "Supernode" which will catch all Hotspots, I'll see how it goes. I'm dubious about running such scripts on my firewall, last time I ran a similar item I got too many false positives and had some grumpy customers... However, after my clamav had a panic attack last night I'm tempted ...

Re: Spambots

Hey Guys Thanks!!! Forepoint, I'm gonna try that out today, hopefully it will help get me off the block lists. Can I safely just add this to my firewall / permimiter device, or am I better off adding to each of my radios (50 Hotspots) ? I'm also gonna trawl the forum for auto backup and update scrip...

Spambots

Hey everyone, I hope I'm not doubling up, but I couldn't find any relevant posts... I have some issues on my hotspot network. I'll give you some history first. First we re-directed all email through to our isps mailserver and told our customers to turn of SMTP auth as we were trusted ip. However, a ...

RE-directs to third party site for confirmation (i.e. http://www.mycardsecure.com) 4. then back to our local ...

Just my two cents. Love the graph, but 3b4 is not displaying history correctly.

More Wine DUDE?

I've got Dude running fine in Wine on Debian Etch. I'm sure there should be little hassle on most Wine Systems. Problems though... 1. The network map I use (PNG of my town) displays fine, but redraw is slow. 2. Dynamic items in Network map (such as load, Disk, Traffic) doesn't display, perhaps a red...

Locustworld MeshAP and Mikrotik

Anyone got experience of both? I'm looking at moving from MeshAP to Mikrotik and would like to know if I can reuse geode SC1100 boards (no luck thus far). Also, benefits things you miss? I read a post from surfnet that it made life 100 times better, I'd believe that as I'm having no end of issues wi...

Geode SC1100

Howdy, I'm currently using MeshAP and am having some issues with suppport and getting it to work with Aradial Radius. While i'm waiting for support I thought I'd see if ... 1. Does Mikrotik RouterOS work on the Geode SC1100? 2. Does mikrotik work with Aradial Radius ? Looking forward to some answers...
