Need product recommendation for sending SMS.

I've tried the Huawei E3372h-607 USB modem in both stick and hilink modes without success. Data no problem but never got SMS working.

What i'm looking for ideally is a routerboard that supports a sim card along with the mini-pci card to handle the cellular part.

API written in C

I'm continuing to develop an API written in C and wish to share it here.

The API has now been broken out into separate files that can be included thus keeping your main project files small.

Hope someone finds it interesting.

Quickly clone firewall rules via API written in C.

I have a need in my work to copy firewall rules from a master router to several dozen other routers. So I wrote this program.

Re: 1st time RB3011 configuration

Here is something to get you started. We create the bridges and vlan interfaces, then bridge them together. Without a better explanation of the service you get from your ISP I can't help more. Do you have static (public) IP's? or do you get an IP from your ISP via DHCP? /interface bridge add name=br...

Re: Understanding fast path, fasttracking, and fast-forward

A basic firewall rule set would include just the permit and deny statements necessary to control traffic. This would be inefficient since once a connection/stream has been established, you don't need to check all the rules for subsequent packets as long as you know the packet is a member of a stream...

Re: Understanding DHCP on Mikrotik [SOLVED]

None of my Mikrotik's are directly connected to the Internet. They're all internal routers. Picture a water tower site. One radio pointed east. One pointed west. It is a full ring so if the east link goes down, then all traffic will reroute and come in from the west. If the west goes down, all traff...

Re: Understanding DHCP on Mikrotik [SOLVED]

I found that when I bound the DHCP server to a bridge it didn't work. Therefore I assumed it was a requirement to bind all DHCP servers to interfaces. I see that this may no longer be a limitation with newer firmware. My testing was a few versions ago. I'll have to try again with the latest version....

Re: CRS226 DHCP + MAC Limitation Help !

I'm a newbie too.

I believe you just set the pool on the dhcp server to static-only and enter all your static leases for the permitted devices.

Understanding DHCP on Mikrotik [SOLVED]

It has been my experience with 6.40.2 on a network of ~30 Mikrotik routers, that in order for a dhcp-relay anywhere out in the network to work, the packets from the relay must be received by the dhcp server on the same interface the dhcp server is configured on. Now consider the case of an OSPF ring...

Prior to the addition of fasttrack you could remove all firewall filters with

Now that we have fasttrack you must use this

Re: Easy way to mass upgrade firmware?

You need two scripts. Schedule the first one for 11:30 pm. This gives enough time for all your routers to download the update (if there is one). Then, if and only if there was an update, the second script gets called which reboots all routers with an update simultaneously. (make sure you use NTP) I ...

Try setting the "Admin. MAC Address" the same as the "MAC Address" on the Bridge. Also make sure STP is OFF on the Bridge too.
