Your experiences using RFC2217/Serial-over-IP on RB over 3G?

Hello, I've been testing RFC2217 (serial-over-IP) using some RB411 boards, connected over an 850Mhz 3G network with a SW MC8705 to connect to, read, and remotely configure some industrial RS-232 hardware. We're connecting to the boards over a PPTP VPN, and using the popular (among MT users!) VSPE so...

Re: Understanding PCI-e in 411-5nH

Hello, I have recently configured a few of the MC8705 cards on 411-5nH boards, using RouterOS 5.18. I found it extremely problematic, and experienced the same thing as you - unable to enter the info and data channels (same error message as you described), and status continually reading 'reseting lin...

Dude bandwith use for data-sensitive devices?

Hello, I have some RB411 units with 3G modems that I would love to monitor using the Dude - but these devices are on VERY low (5MB/month) m2m plans. I only really want to probe two or three ports, and every few minutes is OK. Are there any tips or tricks for minimising bandwidth/data usage on the Du...

Re: PPTP VPN into network. Missing something.

You probably need to set ARP to proxy-arp on your LAN interface.
Absolutely spot on. Thankyou :D

PPTP VPN into network. Missing something.

Hello I would like to configure a PPTP VPN so that I may connect any machine I happen to be at (at home, etc., which may have any local or WAN IP) to my 192.168.1.0/24 network for troubleshooting and so on. Let's assume that I want it to take a lease from the same pool as all the other machines, and...

Re: Port switching group on RB1100AH? Or something else?

Seems to be working perfectly now, thanks.

Still a bit confused about the conceptual side of these things.
What happens if I add my ether-wan port (ether1) into the switch group, for example?

Very, very impressed with routerOS. Learnt a lot in the last few days..

Re: Port switching group on RB1100AH? Or something else?

Hi cbrown, Hmm, I think I have gotten myself thoroughly confused (and a bit frustrated). I could do with a gentle push in the right direction. Lets say that ether1 and ether2 are my WAN1 and WAN2 interfaces respectively, and that I want the rest of the ports to behave as one big unmanaged switch for...

Re: Port switching group on RB1100AH? Or something else?

Switching the ports together is best but you won't be able to switch 4-13 together, they aren't in the same switch group. You can do 1-5 and 6-10. http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Switch_Chip_Features Thanks for your reply. Does this mean I must use a patch cable between ports 5 and 6 (or betwe...

I answered your other post. Please don't double post. http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=63763 Thanks - The double post was unintentional. I was preoccupied while I typed/submitted my thread, and when I couldn't see it in the forum, I thought I must have only previewed it and not posted...

Port switching group on RB1100AH? Or something else?

Hi all, I'm replacing a Draytek 2820 with a new RB1100AH (very exciting) - The Draytek 2820 simply has four ports at the back, which are all switched. Our network is currently flat, same subnet, no VLANS etc. On the RB1100AH, each port is independent (by design, of course) but for the moment, I just...

RB1100AH - start with port switching? or something else?

Hello everyone, I'm replacing our office's Draytek 2820 (Dual ADSL) with a RB1100AH. We have a simple 'flat' network (same subnet, no VLANs etc), with a couple of external sites on different subnets VPN'd in, but we don't need constant connectivity so it's ok for me to tinker. The draytek 2820 simpl...

DIN rail mount enclosure?

Hello everyone, I am new here and new to Routerboard (and RouterOS!) I am wondering - has anyone found a nice enclosure for a RB411 board (with clearance for a sierra MC8705 3G card) which allows for mounting onto a DIN rail? The unit will be inside another sealed enclosure. All the other devices wi...
