Re: MPLS TE Bug?

I personally have my doubts that this has to do with hardware, but it very well may have to do with the differing CPU architectures that Mikrotik runs RouterOS on. I don't know if the MIPS/PPC architectures that they have can "do" a 64-bit integer. We're all sure and positive that x86, ARM, Tilera c...

Yeah this is one of those things where it's kinda surprising that it hasn't been fixed yet. Does changing the variable type that stores this number from an integer to a double cause an issue within the calculation script?

Request for Mikrotik to allow older versions of code on site

I know that there's older versions of code that Mikrotik has on the download page...however I don't believe that it is sufficient. The code that is there is WAY older....not just a few versions back. It also seems like with the differences/bugs between versions of code that it almost might be benefi...

Re: Having trouble marking return traffic with DSCP...

So BE and CS1 are the traffic classifications under the Diffserv QoS model. BE = Best Effort = "It'll get there when it gets there" CS1 = Class 1 = "A little more important than best effort" It's essentially a Diffserv way of implementing the old school IP Precedence marks. http://www.cisco.com/en/U...

Re: Having trouble marking return traffic with DSCP...

So, what I am intending to do is this. If a packet comes into the router as BE, and it leaves out to ISP 1, then I want the connection that it makes under connection tracking to mark the return traffic coming back in from ISP 1 as BE. I'm doing that across all classes. So I was thinking to classify ...

Heya guys. I am trying to remark return traffic with certain DSCP marks based on how it enters the router. I did it two ways, and the first way was more effecient but it didn't mark traffic. The second way I thought would also mark traffic but it does not. The second way is less effecient but I thin...

Re: Upgrading to V6.0rc12 from V5.5 mipsbe on RB450

Load V6 RC12 into the router (drop the files in) and then see if you can flash the board firmware.

That way you can upgrade the board firmware, and then when you restart it should be able to start in RC 12? I'm just guestimating this...

However I got a quick question. Does this also get engaged on x86? Are the performance boost numbers similar for x86 (50% and up?)?

FastPath wont work with connection tracking. So anything that needs conntrack (firewall, mangle, etc.) will "disable" FastPath if you have conntrack in the new Auto mode.

When one says, "No firewall rules" that means any and all configurations that fall under that right?

So no fast path with Mangle and Marking, or if there is an QoS/Queueing?

I'm not meaning to give a hard time. I'm just meaning to get clarification :)
