Re: v6.42.7 [current] is released!

I noticed that interface "last link up/down times" are in the future.
I have the same problem, noticed on 6.42.6 version. Seems to be only Winbox problem, in console and WebFig it's correct.

Re: RB2011 mount and router power cord problem

There are few threads regarding the microUSB. The reason for microUSB is, that MikroTik planned some features for connecting to computer (use RB as modem or something), but they aren't there yet (i guess that will be introduced together with mAP), even in settings can be found client or host mode op...

Re: RB951-2n PoE question

According to Zyxel's web, it has 802.3af (active) PoE, which needs to negotiate power for working. RouterBoards as opposite are using passive PoE (just voltage in two wires), so they doesn't ask for power. (Except mAP, which should support both.) I don't know, if there is any simple solution.

Re: winbox problem

Winbox stores it's data in %AppData%\Mikrotik folder, if can't write here it stores data in current working directory. Check permissions settings of that folder.

Re: Allow choice of binding interface for NTP and DNS server

Maybe it's good idea to have DNS and NTP (and other) servers configured the same way as DHCP (per interface), i don't know. But for sure you should have a "block everything" rule below the rules, in which you allow something. I think it would be unnecessary more complicated to have access configurat...

The battery drain can be stopped by enabling WiFi powersave mode in Android WiFi settings - but as this isn't supported by ROS, you can expect troubles with push-mail or other things, that need to use WiFi when on powersave.

You want access from 2 subnet only to management and not to AP's clients? AP probably block access to management from WAN port, then don't use WAN port on AP and set them (RB and AP) to same subnet.

Re: Firewall rules between two LAN help

I think i figured it out: you allow established connections, but to establish TCP connection you already need link in both directions.

So i think you should allow all traffic from server to second network, so he can respond and establish the connection, then the established rule isn't needed.

Re: Reading USB / SD card on RouterBOARD 751G-2HnD or RB450G

ROS can read only Ext filesystem, but windows can't. You need special softwre to access Ext filesystem from Windows.
Simpliest solution now is to format the USB key in RB and transfer files via FTP, winbox or SMB.
