Would love to see the Dude have a minor/major alarm display option instead of partial/full down. A service would be specified as a minor or major service, which would change the color of the device and submap icon, based upon the most severe service that's down.

Re: The Dude, v6.37rc test builds.

You may already know this then, since 10g interfaces are on your to-do list. But in 6.37rc15 at least, diff64 has a serious limitation. While it can handle 64 bit counters as inputs, its output is the least significant 32 bits. So any difference over ~4.29 billion is erroneous.

Interesting. I just installed Demo ROS on an old Vista machine. If you change the Winbox port in X86, then it automatically changes the Dude port with it. So they share the same port.

Your system sounds similar to ours in a lot of ways. Same problem we originally had when adding a L2TP link as well.

Zerobyte. It does look like you've hit a lot of points. My apologies for not reading more carefully.
