Re: IP redirect without NAT dst-nat rule

netmap should do the same as dstnat applied to an entire subnet instead of a single address.

I read on the wiki that NAT is disabled with connection tracking disabled, so I expect the entire “NAT” section not working

IP redirect without NAT dst-nat rule

Hello everyone,

I would like to redirect traffic from an IP to another, without using a dst-nat rule, because I would like to disable connection tracking on that router, as I’m using it only to have this redirect rule working.

Is there something I can do?

Thanks

Re: Important bugs in 6.30

Can't understand why they doesn't follow the release schedule they wrote about.
I expected this fix in a quick 6.30.1 release, not a probably buggy 6.31

They told me not to downgrade only user-manager package to 6.29.1

Hey guys, as MikroTik seems to ignore us (as usual on User Manager topics... :( ), i ask you: did you try to downgrade the user-manager package only to 6.29.1? Does it work?
This bug is very important as I have lots of API scripts that use the "username" field.

Sure! It's for this reason i called it remote scan :D API connection is like SSH connection, i think there isn't a real limit on timeout. If you set 60s duration and 80s timeout, it works! Just be sure you don't have any limitation in your php configuration about script time limit. You can remove th...

Re: [HOW TO] Remote Scan using API

You can set your wlan here:
->setArgument('number', WLAN_NUMBER_HERE)
It drops the connection but when the connection come back it returns you the data, i tested it, and it works correctly and it's quick

How do you write to file?

Re: Terrible speed on AP

25% TX
15% RX

I tried to switch off all radios and I tried each allowed channel on wlan1 but I can't find a good one where each client has a good speed.
Only a few users can get 9-10mbps with a good CCQ.

Unfortunately, it's a noisy area.

About nstreme: it doesn't work!
I have "any" on the station. If i set "nstreme" on the AP, it doesn't work: the station disconnects every time it connects with "lost connection, not polled for too long"

I'm sure you have a workaround :lol:
