Re: CloudCode Router Ports Switched?

I understand that, but a $30 Netgear router manages to route and switch, so I'm having trouble figuring out why Mikrotik doesn't do that out of the box. Some of their equipment (like the RB1200) has a switch chip that switches the first 5 ports. Others (like the RB2011) have two switch chips, so por...

Session Timeout

I'm using an RB1200 with the Hotspot feature and radius authentication using FreeRADIUS. The problem I'm running into is that my customer's sessions seem to timeout too quickly. I have looked into the Idle Timeout and Keepalive Timeout features in the MT manual, but those appear to only deal with un...

Re: CloudCode Router Ports Switched?

Do you have any idea why that's the case? It doesn't make sense to me that all of the ports on the router wouldn't naturally be switched by default. And a software bridge works, but isn't a very elegant (or efficient) workaround.

CloudCode Router Ports Switched?

I have used RB1200 routers in the past and am in the process of upgrading to the CloudCore CCR1016-12g. My question is whether all of the CCR's Ethernet ports are switched or if I have to bridge them. For my RB1200, I had to create a bridge group and put the ports that I want to be switched in that ...

Re: Question about IP hotspot flags

Thanks for the reply, skot. I have another scenario that I need to understand better. I have run across users who are listed on the Hosts tab with a status of either "D" or "AD," and they are not on the Active tab, but they are provisioned correctly in the radius server. Do you k...

Re: Migrating from RB1200 to CCR1016-12G

I have a very similar need. One thing I noticed that has thrown me off is that the Eth ports on the CloudCore router are numbered 11-22 instead of 1-12, and I wonder if that has something to do with it. Is anyone aware of a guide, tutorial or forum post that describes the ways in which the config of...

Re: Problem Transferring Users to a Radius Server

I was able to get this working, but not the way I had hoped. The confusion came when I performed a mass import of users into RM from a user export in the Mikrotik. All of the users I created manually worked, but none of the users that were part of this import seemed to work. Since I was still able t...

Re: Problem Transferring Users to a Radius Server

I seems to me that there must be a set of procedures that one would follow if they had outgrown User Manager, for example, and needed to migrate all of their active users from the Mikrotik to an external radius server. I would prefer to use User Manager so as to not need another service, but my unde...

Re: Problem Transferring Users to a Radius Server

As I mentioned, I have been manually adding users to the radius server for over a month with no problems. When the group of users was transferred to the radius server, each was assigned all of the required parameters (as well as some that weren't required). I followed the same format as the users th...

Re: Problem Transferring Users to a Radius Server

Based on your response, it sounds like there isn't a general rule of thumb when transferring people from the Mikrotik to a radius server, such as clearing their ARP entry or deleting their DHCP lease. That's primarily what I'm looking for. Thank you for your input.

Re: Problem Transferring Users to a Radius Server

Thanks. I'll check it out. In the meantime, are there any entries that I should remove from the Mikrotik as a matter of process when I transfer a user from the Hotspot-->Users section to my external radius server to help ensure that the subscriber will experience little or no service interruption?

Problem Transferring Users to a Radius Server

Mikrotik Forum Gurus, I'm having a problem transferring hotspot users from my RB1200 to our radius server, which is Radius Manager from DMASoftlab and is based on FreeRADIUS. I have been manually adding users to Radius Manager for a month with no problems. Last night, I performed (via DMASoftlab sup...
