Re: Remote Support Access to RouterBoard via NAT

Well, I do not have any access to the edge router, backbone etc. I only have initially access (during set up) to the RB450G which is connected to a NAT router, then satellite and then somewhere via same public IP to the Internet. Once the RB450G is in operation I do not have any access anymore ... h...

Re: Remote Support Access to RouterBoard via NAT

I guess you're making it overly complicated for no particular reason. I advise making it in a more simple way, a way that just works and is used by a lot of people. If you're worried about the safety of PPTP, you can secure it with a "port knocking" technique. Not sure what I am doing differently? ...

Remote Support Access to RouterBoard via NAT

I've got around 100+ RB450G all connected to the Internet via a single public IP address. Right now it is impossible to apply any changes, updates etc. I like to remotely access these routers to apply changes, updates if required using e.g. winbox (or http browser). But I do not have any access to t...

Re: Walled Garden and SSL sites intermittent problem

Thanks! Looking forward seeing the reply from Mikrotik. Well, from my understanding, the domain name is never in the IP header, as the IP header only knows about IP addresses.

Did you check if the rb750 rebooted during the non-responding pings? Check the System/Resources Uptime. I have a rb750 for testing here and it is giving me just trouble.

RouterOS generates a RADIUS AcctSessionId which is not 'very' unique. The same session-id is generated from time to time within a time period of a few days or hours.
