OVPN idle timeout not working?

Under the "/interface ovpn-server server" menu, the "keepalive-timeout" value doesn't appear to have any effect in RouterOS 6.42.7. I've had several cases where remote clients (using "hAP lite" routers) would lose their internet connectivity (or lose power), and then not be able to connect again, be...

Re: CHR feature requests

I forgot to add, I did a write-up which details how I resized the filesystem, in case anybody needs it.

Re: CHR feature requests

How about a way to re-trigger the partition resizing, after the first boot? I'm evaluating using a CHR as a VPN server. I'm hosting it with a VPS with 20 GB disk, however "/system resource print" only shows 128MB. I was able to shut down the CHR and boot the VPS with Finnix to adjust the partition t...

Re: Help with VLAN trunking

The "/interface vlan" menu allows you to create VLAN interfaces. The VLAN interfaces will "contain" the packets with the indicated tag, while the underlying physical interface will "contain" the untagged packets. Once these interfaces exist, you can assign IP addresses to them, and then set up whate...

Re: Update mechanism details

I just finished writing a more detailed write-up on how to build a private package update repository. It includes a shell one-liner to extract the necessary four bytes and format them as a decimal number.

Re: Update mechanism details

I figured it out ... the four bytes at offset 0x0022 in each "system-*.npk" file are the value, in little-endian order. For example, for version 6.38: * The four bytes in the file are "24 46 66 58" (for both "mipsbe" and "smips" architectures, I'm assuming this will be true for the other architectur...

Update mechanism details

I'm setting up a private repository with a few specific RouterOS versions, to be used by our routers (half a dozen RB2011's, about 40 hAP lites, and a few hAP ac's.) I've been reverse-engineering the mechanism behind the "/system package update" mechanism, and I've reached the point where my test ro...

/interface list member

You can use the lists in /ip firewall filter
I totally missed the fact that /interface list member existed. Thanks for pointing this out.

Re: v6.36 [current] is released!

I can see how to use "/interface list add" to create a list, but how do I control which interfaces are part of the list? http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Interface/List is pretty much useless at the moment.

ovpn-client assigns wrong network

I'm trying to use an RB2011, running RouterOS 6.18, as the firewall/router for a new remote office. The company has an existing Linux OpenVPN server in the main office, and the RB2011 is intended to be an OpenVPN client, routing private traffic back to the office while allowing all other traffic to ...
