The CRS112-8P-4S-IN switch can be powered either at 24 o 48V.
Il 48V is used, PoE output can also be configured @24V passive mode on selected ports, or all ports work in 48V (802.3af) mode?

Re: Impossible to drop ARES p2p

Hi Jose, could you please post what type of level7 firewall do you use to filter p2p traffic? MT cannot efficently mangle all p2p traffic (please look @ http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=18024 ), so the procedure normally used is to mangle all other traffic (e.g. calling it "known" traff...

Please note that Rapidshare traffic is normal http traffic on port 80, the same "normal browsing" traffic.
The only difference is that on RapidShare servers are stored files to be shared.
Definetly, it is not P2P traffic but simply "P2P content".
