Re: Problem Metal 2SHPn

*Bump*

Same Problem here. Tons of clients getting regulary "disco's" from metal. All RB33 working fine in same area with same Antenna.

Should we all contact Mikrotik support or is there any help on the forum for this?

cheers,

Re: Roaming between hotspots via central dhcp and proxy arp?

Proxy-ARP only helps once an ARP request is made so the central router would need to decide which interface to ARP on before it can get any replies - proxy or otherwise. You mean i would have to provoke icmp requests for this concept to work? Ok, then i rather stay with either - dial-in/wlan router...

Re: Roaming between hotspots via central dhcp and proxy arp?

No that wont work
dang! Any word on why it wont work? Wheres the thinking error?
Just use EoIP/vpls tunnels and bridge it all back to the main controller.
Thats another aproach but then id rather bridge them directly via ethernet.

thx,

Re: Very basic nat question

Hi Feklar,
What interface is that IP on? I'm guessing you have a PPP client running, and the out interface is technically that routed interface, not the physical one it resides on.
the public ip is on an ethernet interface with a /30 transfer net to the isp.

cheers,

Re: Very basic nat question

Hi, Instead of using src-nat, using masquerade might be more appropriate to your setup. Something like (not tested): add action=masquerade chain=srcnat src-address=192.168.1.0/24 out-interface=ISP_UP with the "masquerade" action i had the problem that it did take the private ip assigned to a bridge ...

Supout.rif reader only shows resources

Hello,

ive tried to use the supout reader but it only shows the "resource" information. Everything else is blank.

Any hints why this could be? Empty supout file? No registered licenses?

And how do i add licenses to my account who had been bought via an distributor?

Re: /ip settings doesn not exist?

Many IP settings are just under /IP. If you are new to RouterOS try looking at Winbox or Webfig - faster overview than the command line.
