Re: Poor SXT Power Adapter Quality

Had a couple fail on me recently and thought it was just dirty power. Would there be any damage caused or warranty voided to the unit if I use the RB 951/RB 2011 24V 0.8A adapters on these units ? I have a lotta links with these radios so I'd rather be proactive and start replacing them now.

Re: Advise on x86 hardware for bgp

I know this is a total necro , but we mostly use Dell R320's for the job via ESXI and has done the job very well though I wish you could get a native accelerated network card supported with the Mikrotik instead of using the E1000 or flexible adapter.Dual PSU , Dual Flash Card, 2XPCIE Risers,Out of B...

Re: v6.4 released

Eish kwagga feel your pain . I can only assume some braindead auditor or CA thought of that scheme ?


The 6 releases has been pretty poor so far . Barring the boadroom AP's we use there is just no way I would let a 6.XX device touch my network at this point.

Re: IPSec 6.4 MT to MT

I always just make IP-IP Tunnels to the remote sides and then use IPSEC to encrypt the remote ends . Makes troubleshooting so much easier , when something isn't coming up and routing is dead easy.

Remember to change the MSS via mangle otherwise you might experience MTU related issues.

Re: x86 CPU + RouterOS

Avoid hyperthreading CPU's (or turn off in BIOS) with RouterOS as it causes weird issues. If you use a 5+ release my experience : The more cores the better the performance whilst older ones releases seemed to favor higher clock speeds. Xeon will smash a Celeron from what I recall in my tests. Do not...

Re: Recovery Site

Been a while since I've done it , but the networking part was the easy part from what I recall . EOIP just created a big broadcast domain between the main server closet and the recovery center. You give the recovery vmware server a different ip in the same range , and then VEAM just backs up the ima...

Re: Recovery Site

I take it you are using something like Vmware/HyperV with VEAM replication ? We've done something similar with EOIP to a DR center and works pretty well.
