Re: Google Cloud Platform GCP - VPN - BGP [SOLVED]

Hello, RouterOS has policy based IPsec only. You can configure 0.0.0.0/0<->0.0.0.0/0 traffic selector, but you will not be able to route specific traffic over the tunnel, so that really is not an option at this time. So basically the only way to have stable tunnel between GCP and Mikrotik is to swi...

Re: Newsletter 60: 802.11ac

Apart from designs.mikrotik.com you don't like the nice shirt designs ? :) Just not for me ;) I get what you guys are trying to do by getting some brand awareness going though. Would prefer some stickers or plain brand posters personally for the IT room. How many people are actually going to take t...

Re: LDP Based VPLS tunnel

Hi We are using static routing and transports are pingable. Both end-points show route labels from each other, so I cannot see anything wrong here. The vpls interfaces is totalyb dead, no data is transferred. Could you post your config ? It sounds like you're on the right track.I'm still betting on...

Re: LDP Based VPLS tunnel

This stuff usually boils down to MTU most of the time.MPLS/VPLS is a whole lot more complicated than EOIP , so you're gonna have to read up quite a bit how it works.Have a look at the Wiki as well as documentation written by Greg Sowell,Andrew Thrift and Tomaskir. Can you see MPLS labels being excha...

Re: Testing New MikroTik Hardware on Production Environment [SOLVED]

Looks great rextended. I totally agree regarding lack of available panels directly from MTK.I dislike buying 3rd party panels as I've had fitting and moisture problems with 3rd party panels.I'd definitely buy 90* 2.4ghz and 5ghz high gain panels from Mikrotik by the truckload if they ever produce th...

Re: CAPs Manager

Any reviews on usage of Capsman in a semi/production deployment ? I need to do a wireless roll out for nearly site wide VOIP + Email connectivity in the not too distant future. I'd normally go to UBNT but their current stuff has left a really bad taste in my mouth. Would be interested to know if any...

Re: SFP Link down after reboot

I've seen similar things happen between different manufacturers switches using either unsupported or partially supported SFP modules.Are you using the manufacturer recommended SFP's on both ends ?

Re: Ospf flapping

What mode are you running your OSPF in ? Broadcast , NBMA , P2P ? I've pretty much had to force all my Wireless links to run in OSPF P2P Mode due to links getting stuck in ExStart or 2 Way.

Re: Home CPE + VoIP

I can't really see MTK going into the voice arena tbh.The horde of asterisk frontend devices/projects you can get nowadays is very very complete.That said if they make such a device I would deffo be interested in it for some of my tiny remote sites and finally get rid of Mitel/Cisco crap that I have...
