Longtime no post. We have users downloading 4GB plus sized files. Our entire backend is made up of MT boxes. Problem is the download stops with the filesize reported as 0 and the status as completed! Before we complain to our upstream providers we need to know that this is not an MT issue. File down...

Problems with MT PPPoE Client

We intend to use MT in a big way as a firewall/QoS/Access Control solution for our clients. Problem is that the PPPoE client in Mikrotik behaves strangely. The setup is as detailed. MailClient has a Valid IP and is routed through MT BOX-A. MT BOX-A gets connected to MT BOX-B as a PPPoE client using ...

Cant be done. As your PPPoE interface created for a client is in ITSELF regulated by the profile limits. As the interface itself is say 64/64 no way can you increase bandwidth to particluar sites. one way out will be to invert the limits. ie Have a profile limit of say 1024/1024 and then have trafic...

Do what we do. Determine the routes to most popular IP series on each ISP. Then policy route them as per the fastest link. Not the neatest method but this works. If you are going to continually assess latencies and then decide on the route, your MT and you will soon be in a loony bin.

We have noticed that EDonkey performance drops like hell when using private IP's. Are your clients on private IPs or on Public IPs?? If on Public IPs there should be no problem.

This could be a bug in EDonkey wherein it limits the number of clients from a single IP.

2. Use PCQ on your clients, not the PPPoE limits - you will have to use tree queues, consult the manual on how to do this. AFAIK, then you will be able to change limits on the fly.

You could masquerade all users on the MT and have a DST NAT redirect Port 80 to the SQUID on MT. Have MT SQUID size set to zero and parent proxy it to the EXTERNAL SQUID.

Then External SQUID will easily communicate to the MT SQUID, we thinks.
