High temperature in system health report.

Hello,
I have PowerBox Pro, when I check system health in winbox.
It shows voltage: 48.1 V and temperature 77 C.(cpu 3%)
77 C seems to be too high for idle operation.
Is this normal?

the problem you are facing is hat you have to create pptp tunnel to your ISP. That is odd to say the least as they usually provide PPPoE tunnel, that is assigned on the interface (or inerfaces in MLPPP case) while PPTP uses IP address to connect. PPPoE is chosen since you do not need ethernet to be...

yes, if ports are switched, then only master port have configuration in RouterOS. SO if you set ether2 master-port=ether1 and assign IP address on ether1, then both ports will have that.

non-bonded - means you have several links but they work as separate connections. And all the balancing is done on one router.
