L2TP/IPsec vs OpenVPN speed tests

I decided to do some testing today while I had the time, and wanted to see if my results are typical for speed differences between IPsec and OpenVPN. I have 4 routers, all virtual machines on an esxi server test environment, with gigabit virtual networks. All virtual routers were running RouterOS x8...

Re: Cannot pass traffic across EOIP bridge?

Well, fixed the issue. After beating my head against the wall some more, I finally stumbled across this thread http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?t=54496 . All I had to do was set Promiscuous Mode to "accept" on the vSwitch properties, and voila, it's working like it should. So, moral of the st...

Re: x86 and ethernet/port isolation

generated quite a bit of traffic across the network that ether2 is attached to, and still nothing showing on ether1. still weird, but, at least it's doing what I want right now.

I was looking around for anyone who had experience with the RB922UAGS-5HPacD-NM, but, nothing to be found. So, figured I'd add some info I came across. My intention was to build a dual-radio AP for my house. I am using an RB751, which works great, except on my mac equipment. Since Apple cripples 40m...

Re: RB751u-2hnd ethernet 1 gone bad?

I appreciate that. As inexpensive as they are though, I think I'll just purchase another, and use this one as a backup. It doesn't seem to be affecting the performance/stability of the router as long as I keep the port disabled.

Re: RB751u-2hnd ethernet 1 gone bad?

powered the router down for ~2 minutes, powered back on, and ethernet 1 still shows an active 10m full duplex link even without anything plugged into port 1.

I have setup the link to the wisp on ether2, and it works fine.

pretty sure i have a faulty ethernet 1 port at this point.

RB751u-2hnd ethernet 1 gone bad?

After an electrical storm (no direct hits taken), the router I setup for my parents at their house quit passing traffic to their wisp. Today, went to their house, and first thing I noticed that was odd, was that ethernet 1 was training up at 10m *full* duplex, to the wisp's equipment, which is 100M....

There are two ways to collect information, SNMP or Router OS. Router OS is only supported by Mikrotik applications. SNMP is an open standard. You will want to use SNMP unless there is a specific reason you need ROS. what would be some reasons to use ROS over SNMP? Any differences in speed and packe...
