RB850Gx2: hardware MPPE?

Hi!
I've read in the announcement that RB850Gx2 supports hardware encryption.
Is MPPE supported?
In case of thix box acting as small PPTP server.
Thanks for attention.

Re: FastTrack - New feature in 6.29

Seems like it's not working on PPTP and GRE interfaces of my RB2011. Do you plan to support fasttrack on GRE/PPTP/etc ?
It's a common practice when PPTP connection to ISP is used.

Same problem on RB1200 with FW 3.10 ROS 6.24 (and earlier versions starting from some 5.xx, I didn't have 4.xx on this board).

Yes, you should. Here you have two choises 1) Add route to guest subnet on CRS via RB951. NAT only to WAN. 2) Add NAT on RB951 with SNAT (to source: ip address in LAN connected to CRS) for guests. No need to add route on CRS to guests in this setup, but it's additional cpu load and memory use for N...

I think that the problem is that your proxy replies with it's own address (192.168.1.100) to clients. Make sure that it replies with original destination ip to client (reply to client must be from the same address that client used as destination). Of course you need to forward correctly this on rout...

Re: About Wifi roaming settings in CAPsMAN

As for now you can use a bridge in datapath configuration.
It will roam ok between APs'. Also you may want to setup access list for dropping low-signal clients (for them to reconnect to strongest AP).
Roaming will not be seamless but at least it's working.
