Re: Seeing about 70 kbits per second from my ISP Modem constantly even when idle [SOLVED]

So I added a passthrough rule near the top of the firewall table to count and log UDP dhcp packets (dst port = 67) but nothing seen.

So I guess it is ARP. But why would ARP from the ISP node be going through the Rogers Hitron modem (in bridged mode) too the MikroTik ?

Normal ?

Re: Simple routing architecture problem from a newbie. HELP

Re: How to assign a public IP to a server, without NAT?

I am a Mikrotik newbie... I am trying to achieve the same results as per the title of this thread but on a new RB2011 integrated box. I have 1:1 NAT working for an Asterisk host. But I also need to deploy an Asterisk host directly on a public IP. I have bridged my wan port ether1 to a dedicated ethe...

Re: How do I setup router for public/29 address space

How silly of your provider to give you a static address (/32) that's not already in your static subnet, but that's beside the point, and it gives you 9 static IPs to work with instead of just 8. You get your route from the PPPoE session, so that's taken care of. Now, just put your subnet on your DM...

Re: How do I setup router for public/29 address space

Now that you say silly - That makes me feel better. Maybe it's the only way they know how. In any event, Thanks for the ROS code. I will try to implement that tonite. I am guessing there are a few other ways to crack this nut. But this is the first meaningful (ie: seems to make sense to me the Mikro...

How do I setup router for public/29 address space

My ISP has assigned me a PPPoE login and with it they give me a static IP (that never changes) when the router connects. But I also asked for additional static IP's with a /29 bitmask. How do I add those addresses to the router? The pppoe address looks like 206.243.xxx.yyy and the gatweway is 206.24...

Bug report - Webfig shows 2 rules under the same number

But Winbox shows the numbering correctly. Seems like an obvious bug to me but it only shows up in Chrome and not Firefox. I am running Router 6.6 on an RB2011. Don't know what rev of Winbox because I don't know how to find the rev number. All around as a newbie, I prefer Webfig but not sure I trust ...

How do I connect to TP-LINK 8816 in Bridge Mode

Thought the title might catch some attention here. Just trying to get my head around a new RB2011 wireless in enclosure. I upgraded my DSL Modem from a $16 TP-LINK 8616 to a $25 TP-LINK 8816 just to get some good DSL line quality stats. Both modems are officially allowed for "bring your own modem" o...

Re: Simple DNS for local hosts on the default subnet

Give clients only 192.168.88.1.
That made a huge difference. Now my win7 boxes can resolv either a short address like ext125 or ext125.hosts.tik.

Wish I knew why that change made a difference. I always like logical explanations for why a change solves a problem :)

Thanks.

That worked nicely. Thanks very much. I had already implemented the first part from a reply that you posted on another one of my threads. Things are slowly coming together. But Can I ask what is the purpose of the hairpin rule. If I am on the same subnet doesn't the connection just work by default. ...

Re: Simple DNS for local hosts on the default subnet

So I have the DNS working for local hosts on the LAN with a FQDN. For example I can use a host name to browse or ping such as ext125.hosts.tik where ext125 is a voip phone on the lan. Now the big BUT. But the dns name resolution is only working on my linux hosts and the router console itself. Window...

Re: Simple DNS for local hosts on the default subnet

Does "IP / DNS / Static" not do what you need?
Tried that but I will try again because I agree that it should (at least the way I interpret to manuals).

Re: RB2011 Default Port Configuration (Master/Bridge)

Sounds good.

So using Winbox tool or Webfig tool and "new terminal" is a nice way to subvert or get around a potentially closed port 22 I guess (especially after loading your basic firewall script) ?

Thanks for the encouragement and the router script. Can I cut and paste that into a file with an editor in the command line and what file would it be? (Pretty dumb questions!)

Re: RB2011 Default Port Configuration (Master/Bridge)

Yes, for my home RB2011 I've set port 6 as the gateway (BT's VDSL Modem only links at 100Mbps max by the look of it anyway) and I'm using 1-5 as a straight gigabit switch. For most purposes defaulting to WAN on port 1 is probably a waste of a gig port, although it's consistent with all other Router...

Simple DNS for local hosts on the default subnet

I am a newbie with MikroTik but have lots of experience with OpenWrt and ddWrt. It's now nice to have a supported router with lots of power and functionality. But I can't figure out how to create a table of host names that map to some dhcp addresses that I have made static. For instance, I have abou...
