Have you assigned an address to your loopback and set the router-id for OSPF to be this loopback address?

It's always best to assign OSPF to the lookback address as this "interface" never goes down.

Standard ISP Firewall practices

What are some good standard firewall practices that ISP's should use to filter theirs customers internet? Is it appropriate to filter it at all or give them full access to ports etc.?

If it is a good idea to filter forward traffic for customers then what are some good guildlines to use?

Traffic Flow (NetFlow)

What is the best NetFlow collector to use with MikroTik?

I am looking for any price range (obviously cheaper is better) and I am looking for something that can analyze, build data point that can be exported and can run on Linux or windows.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Routing Public Ip's

That is what I think I will be moving towards. Does anyone have any good suggestions as far as resources I can use to help me set it up weather that be literature or videos? I have read all that I can find on mikrotiks site but It does not seem to help in my specific situation.

DHCP and PPPoE

I am currently using PPPoE to authenticate clients to my router.

We are going to being using DHCP with Static only mac filtering.

Can I ad my server to the same port as the PPPoeE, Use the same pool in both and then change all the PPPoE clients to DHCP without any issues?

Freeradius + PPP Profile

I would like to specify (using my freeradius server) what PPP Profile I would like each user to use from the router. I use PPP Profiles to set not only the IP Pool but also to rate limit in some cases. Is there a special command that will apply a Profile defined within the mikrotik or do I have to a...
