Re: v6.24 RC

I updated to 6.24rc10 (build 2014-12-22 13:43:03) using the all-in-one routeros-mipsbe-6.24rc10.npk on an RB2011UiAS-2HnD. Upon doing so and rebooting, the ntp and multicast packages were gone from the router, disabling some important functionality. I had to manually fetch and unpack all_files_6.24r...

+1 for IGMP snooping. Its absence is ridiculous.

Re: Ready-to-go IPSec+L2TP config?

I had upgraded to Mavericks 10.9.2 and discovered (client side) that the VPN issue was NOT fixed if one didn't apply the patch in 10.9.1 (see here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5951305?tstart=0).
Give this a go and let us know if your VPN woes are solved:

Ready-to-go IPSec+L2TP config?

Hello! Does anyone have a ready-to-go IPSec+L2TP VPN configuration to add to an existing router config running a fairly simple NAT setup? The clients would be iOS and/or OS X. Also, how can one prevent connection to the L2TP server without going through the IPSec first, to ensure that all connection...

Re: NTP client using FQDN?

Why complicate all???? You just need this: /system scheduler add interval=30m name=check_time_servers on-event="/system ntp client set enabled=yes mode=unicast primary-ntp=[:resolve 0.europe.pool.ntp.org] secondary-ntp=[:resolve 1.europe.pool.ntp.org];" policy=read,write start-date=jan/02/1970 star...

Re: NTP client using FQDN?

I wish ros would save the fqdn instead of the ip. I use a script set to run every 30 min to update the settings with the new addresses to respect the load balancing. This doesn't seem to work; here's the script: :log info "NTP IP update script triggered."; #Get NTP IPs :local ntpipa [:resolve 0.eur...

RB450G with RouterOS 6.9; the Graphs page in Webfig is completely blank.

Re: How to disable Quick Set in Webfig?

Using the Design Skin button, it is possible to disable menus.
Fair enough, thanks!

What a hack, but if need be, I'll do it. Please excuse the ignorance; how exactly is this added and scheduled?

Re: NTP client using FQDN?

Just input the FQDN in the /system ntp The FQDN will be converted to IP addresses once the router does nslookup. It performs the DNS resolution precisely once: the moment you configure it, and then never again. Load balancing (the whole point of pool.ntp.org) is lost. This is not a solution, unfort...

NTP client using FQDN?

Hello!

My RB450G (RouterOS v6.10) is configured as an NTP client. I would like to use an FQDN (pool.ntp.org, europe.pool.ntp.org, etc) to respect load-balancing. How can I do this?

Thanks in advance!
