Re: Metal 52 ac station / RB2011UiAS-2HnD-IN client (slow speed)

Had a similar experience with poor wireless performance. I was running with Frequency set to Auto, and Width set to 20/40 Ce, and there's quite a bit of wireless congestion in my area (neighborhood). Using my phone and a WiFi Analyzer app, I saw the Tik was picking channel 3 + 5, with 40 Mhz width. ...

Re: 6.22 released!

read the changelog - if you don't need a feature/fix, don't upgrade if your setup is working fine. If you do, well, report problems back in a non-whiny way with the data necessary for MT to actually fix your problem. make sure you have a backup of your Know-Good config BEFORE you attempt an upgrade...

Re: 6.22 released!

guys, calm down. did you see how fast they rolled from 6.21.1 -> 6.22? like 2 weeks. THEY ARE LISTENING AND ATTEMPTING TO FIX PROBLEMS! There was a beta upgrade -- but I assume the people complaining here did not download it, try it, and report back problems -- so MT has zero/little complains on bet...

Re: Import Script fails on line that does not exist

hmm... so after some further experimenting, it seems configuring /system ntp client set enabled=yes server-dns-names=0.us.pool.ntp.org,1.us.pool.ntp.org in the script may have been causing some trouble since I was doing this without being plugged into the WAN. I tried doing the restore of the .backu...

Import Script fails on line that does not exist

I have 2 CCR's that I'm trying to keep the configs in sync with each other. One is the primary unit, and the other is a backup unit that is off most of the time. I first tried to take a backup of the first CCR, then download the .backup file to my machine --> power on the backup unit, plug my comput...

Re: 6.22 released!

Why upgrade that critical router before testing by yourself on other non critical place ? I first upgrade my home MT router everything working then update non critical part of network and after that update critical part of network. I know people using today 2.9.27 or 3.30 or 4.17 or 5.26 or 6.22 an...

Re: 6.22 released!

I could give you many ticket IDs which show differently... no point in arguing. if you work in software development for a while, you would understand tickets filed that effect only a small subset of users take the backseat to show-stopping issues (like if the router stops passing traffic or somethi...

Re: 6.22 released!

fellas, calm down a second. any new release of any software will have some problems, not just mikrotik. if you have some core infrastructure that you cannot afford to have problems with -- don't upgrade immediately, let is play out for a few days/weeks while users who can afford to be "bleeding edge...

IPSec Users | Use ldap from Windows AD?

Is it possible to configure IPsec Users to be imported from a Windows AD? When I view IP -> IPSec -> Users there does not seem to be any options other than to just create a local static user. I would like to allow users or a group of users from the AD to use VPN access (so one less password/user com...

The RB's DNS settings have 3 dns servers, 1 is internal to the network, the other 2 are google dns servers in case the local dns goes down for some reason. the problem is, over the vpn, users are not always resolving local ne...

Re: SetNtpServers - Set System Time via NTP, Alternative Scr

Isn't it easier to setup your local NTP server for your local network on this spare linux box ? Quick example: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=862620 Sure, if you have one. Some folks just want their router to NTP itself... or don't have a spare box to setup NTP server on like in a SOHO en...

Re: SetNtpServers - Set System Time via NTP, Alternative Scr

I can confirm the NTP script works without modification on v6.21.1

I did notice it took a little bit before the time actually updated. Also, make sure you have specified your timezone in the System --> Clock menu.

Re: Open port for entire network?

is there a way to just open that port then and not forward? maybe in the filters use the Input / Accept filter chain? I really want to avoid having to change ports for my home server as I have several clients running off it and it would be a pain to have to change them all over. I'd really just like...

Open port for entire network?

I want to open some ports for my entire home network so my roommates can play one of their games. I have the ports open under NAT rules, but when i put the dst-nat to address 0.0.0.0 or 0.0.0.0/0, the traffic doesn't seem to reach the machines...(or one machine is getting all of the traffic???)
