Re: MUM Europe 2019: new hardware

I just stumbled across the GPEN11, interesting product. Does it out POE power on both ports? The cabling diagram seems to indicate yes but the documentation doesn't say so I was just looking for some clarification.

Re: Proxy arp by mesh gateways causes problem with hotspot bindi

The solution we came up with was to introduce a layer 3 hop between the Mikrotik and the mesh network. This means the only mac address to show up on the Mikrotik is that of the directly attached router.

Re: Proxy arp by mesh gateways causes problem with hotspot bindi

I've encountered the same problem - also using Tropos mesh APs. If anyone has an idea on this I sure would like to hear it.

Mikrotik and T1

Anyone using Mikrotik as a T1 router? If so has it been successful and would you recommend it? I notice the T1 interfaces are gone from the MT website ... maybe they aren't developing it as a T1 router solution any longer? I'm looking for an alternative to Cisco for dual-wan router (T1 with DSL back...

v2.9 hotspot

Hi All, Does anyone have a suggestion on how to make the hotspot application in version 2.9.x layer 3 only? It seems that the "active hosts" table in the hotspot on 2.9.x binds the client ip and mac address together. This poses a big problem for us because we use a wireless meshing technology that u...

packet sniffer and filter (v2.8)

I'm trying to use the packet sniffer just to monitor DHCP traffic, but it doesn't seem to work right. If I understand the manual correctly I should be able to specify the following to sniff only dhcp traffic : filter-protocol ip-only filter-address1 0.0.0.0/0:67-68 filter-address2 0.0.0.0/0:67-68 Ho...

SR5 and pigtails [SOLVED]

Which connector are people using on the SR5 card - the U.Fl or the MMCX? I'm trying to set it an MT box with the SR5 and finding that the output power is way below what it should be (using the MMCX connector). Lastly, is one connector "antenna a" and the other connector "antenna b" in regards to the...

re:keepalive

cybertime, that sounds more like an idle timeout to me... it could be possible (but maybe unlikely) that a client is still connected for longer than the keepalive-timeout and simply not sending any packets. my goal in using keepalive-timeout rather than idle-timeout is to avoid logging off idle (but...

Hotspot and Keepalive

Hi all, I'm trying to figure out what method the Mikrotik "keepalive timeout" uses to determine whether the client is still connected or not ... I found the question asked a few times already in the forum, but no authoratative answer was given. Does keepalive timeout rely on some sort of method (ie ...

Hi All, Does the nstreme protocol provide any better results against interference? I thought someone said that it did (due to different packet headers?), but I searched through the forum and didn't find anything. We are running up against 2.4 Ghz phones more and more these days -the kinds that have ...

multiple flows to bypass hotspot

I almost had it before I made my first post, I didn't realize I was missing just one thing! You can add firewall rules to allow multiple flows to bypass the hotspot. 1) Create a rule in the "hotspot-temp" chain to return if the flow is marked with a certain name (look at the return if authorized exa...

You can create firewall mangle rules to mark the flow based on source mac address. Once the flow is marked you can shape bandwidth with queue trees.

Reply back if you need specific examples.

hey all, anyone got suggestions for how to set a flow with more than one mark? my current challenge is that I am marking some users with "hs-auth" to bypass the hotspot, however I would also like to mark them in some way to provide bandwidth shaping (for example, PCQ which would require a different ...

I believe these are usually late returning packets whos connection time limit has expired. For example: you connect to website-A, a session is established that lets return packets through the firewall. You close your browser or move onto another site... eventually the connection expires and return p...

Anyone try the Mikrotik bandwidth test client on Windows XP SP2? A friend of mine can't get it to run and I don't have XP/SP2 to verify.

Hi all,

Anyone know if the hotspot feature can be used in a transparent setup? (ie between bridged interfaces)
