Re: New Packet flow diagram

Hello,

Is there any detailed diagram to show how VRFs are processed ? I'm missing something here to fix my inter-VRF tunneling setup.

Thanks !

Multi-WAN & tunnels - VRF-based setup questions

Hello everyone, I'm trying to harden and cleanse my current setup. It's all about distinguishing support connectivity from what flows inside tunnels. Basically, I'd like to put the ISP provided WAN connectivity in dedicated VRFs in order to keep the main routing table clean, and establish tunnels to...

Re: Feature Request /31 Subnet

Implementing RFC3021 is long overdue. I for one simply do not use the Mikrotik /32 method because IP designs should avoid depending on proprietary features when a perfectly good RFC is available, suitable and supported by multiple vendors. I second the feature request and would add that any mention...

Re: CLOUD CORE ROUTER

I already went through most of tilera's papers, what I'm trying to find out (through blind testing on the few CCR we bought yet) is how RouterOS has been ported to the platform.

Every hint I can get would speed-up the scalability assesment and help focus on Q/A (and writing bug reports :D )

Re: MUM Europe 2014 - Italy, Venice, February 20-21

I guess it would require Mikrotik to provide a wider coverage for drivers, or simply allow us to build the GPL'd code and package system.npk ourselves

Re: Specification requests - CCR product line

Please clarify about the smart card? The smart card is used to store your private key. You only plug it in to generate certificates. I thought it could also be used as a local authentication token. My mistake. I don't see the point in handling certificate generation on a router though, should'nt it...

Re: CLOUD CORE ROUTER

Hi everyone, I'm looking for detailed implementation information for the Tilera architecture. Basically, while considering CCRs as candidates to offload some tasks from Cisco and Juniper boxes, we'd like to get some deterministic scales based on the number of cores involved in each and avery bare-me...

Re: RB2011UiAS-2HnD-IN, is Gigabit routing possible?

Hi SquidCannon, On the RB2011 series, all gigabit ports inclueding SFP1 are on the same switch chip with a single gigabit link to the SoC. It means no more than 1Gbps half duplex can flow through the switch uplink. The real limit is still on the CPU though. As you may have already seen, reading the ...

Re: Specification requests - CCR product line

Hi Normis, I saw that already. Looks like a real improvement thanks to the dual power supply. Although the smartcard reader and LCD are mostly useless and a potential security breach. Is it possible to disable it permanently (physical disconnection) ? Still, my point would be to have more flexibilit...

Re: Specification requests - CCR product line

I just learned about the next model : CCR1072-1G-8S+ on tilera's website (http://www.tilera.com/about_tilera/pres ... lity-tiler).

With this NPU, the 1U modular form factor would not give enough space. Maybe a 2U model ? :p

Re: MUM Europe 2014 - Italy, Venice, February 20-21

I'm quite interested in the CCR1072. But why stick to a fixed form factor ? Modular port-adapters and power supplies would help reduce developpement costs imho, and the XAUI interface can be transported as XGMII over 50cm. Also it'll be more flexible with a module choice of XFP (for DWDM optics) or ...

Specification requests - CCR product line

Hi, I've spent a few years playing with routerboards and used a few in real network applications. I now work at for relatively large ISP and thought of using CCRs to offload a few tasks from high-end routers not performing as well as advertised. We've been doing some lab exepriments to validate the ...
