Re: Initial connection SXTR T-Mobile US

If you have a clear line of sight to any of the masts within a distance of 5 km, it should also be ok even with some of the upper frequency bands that are preferable for data connections (if the signal level is good enough). Although I'm not sure what you mean by "I have signal, I'm registered, but ...

Re: Initial connection SXTR T-Mobile US

Sorry to disappoint you but quite frankly is the SXT (and also LHG) quite useless in remote rural areas where the only usable frequencies are usually the lower LTE bands (700-900 MHz). Any idea how far away the nearest base station or mast tower is? This is pure speculation because I do not know you...

Re: SXT LTE6 kit - instable connection / lost internet

Looks like you nailed it at the initial "tryout"! Signal levels are significantly better and the ul-speed of 43 Mbit is actually very good. At that speed, you should be able to get a ping latency of about 20-30 ms. Run a traceroute and pick the first available address that pops up and run a new ping...

Re: Setup IPSec to use specific outbound subnet address on WAN? [SOLVED]

Sorry, but I forgot to mention that the tunnel gets established but cannot pass any packets since the remote peer gets pref-source from the sending side as the return address i.e outbound address = pref-source.

You need to set the "prefered source" on the route - it will set the outbound router ip address. Ok, so if I understand you correctly pref-source is the only way you can control the outbound address for a IPsec tunnel. So in case you have a "/29" subnet defined for your WAN, then you need to assign...

Instead of a direct IPsec tunnel, use GRE over IPsec or L2TP over IPsec to establish a tunnel, and route your LAN traffic via that tunnel. That will end all your problems with NAT avoidance etc. Hi!

Re: IP-address dhcp on SVI interface

Good picture, now I think I understand the objective (sort of anyhow) :-) If the MikroTIk is using only untagged traffic to/from vlan 100 and 200 it's probably a piece of cake. Then you only need to setup the MikroTik to use two regular ether-ports with DHCP on the "vlan-100" side plus a basic firew...

Re: IP-address dhcp on SVI interface

Im using one port in the mikrotik on my local LAN, the other port that i want to assign to vlan 100 is supposed to collect an externa IP from my ISP. My goal is to route some traffic from my local LAN out with another public IP than the rest of my local LAN. Is this making any sense? :) Ok, I assum...

Re: IP-address dhcp on SVI interface

Now im stuck with how the port should be configured. I have configured the port in the cisco to be an accessport and send all packets without the vlan tag. In the mikrotik router I want to tag all packets with vlan 100. . Sorry, but I don't grasp the logic here. If you're connecting to an access po...

Re: IP-address dhcp on SVI interface

Cisco IOS originates from a declarative environment versus Mikrotik ROS which relies more on explicit commands but you can basically do anything found in IOS (or even more). Process: 1. create a vlan interface, set name to VLAN-100, use vlan id 100 and assign it to ethernet port 5. 2. create a dhcp ...

Re: Do any queue types respect Priority markings?

I don't know to tell radius about this, you should contact who built that radius and ask if such thing can be made from radius. Good idea, worth checking out!

Re: Do any queue types respect Priority markings?

Just curious, what does "MSDO" stand for? As regards the other, just set the minimal queue-rate for A and the rest of the bandwith will be available for B. If nothing happens at A, then B will get it all. If the bandwidth requirement is changing during the day you probably need some scripting to alt...

Re: General NAT access between local networks using multiple public WAN address?

It's really quite obvious when you think about it in peace and quiet, right? :-) I was totally focused on the wrong areas looking for a solution. Partly because I was informed that a “Double-NAT“ (:-) or “logical loop-back” was very difficult and required a substantial work effort to implement and s...

Re: General NAT access between local networks using multiple public WAN address?

Correction, you need one extra rule to specifically allow all forwarded ports and it needs to be before the one blocking direct communication between subnets (I'm just not used to this reversed logic of blacklist-style firewall where everything is allowed by default): /ip firewall filter add action...

Re: Subnet on interface

You could set 94.146.42.241/28 as IP address and add a dst-nat rule on that interface so that 94.146.42.240/28 is D-NATed to 94.146.42.241. Connection tracking should take care of the reverse NAT. My only doubts are about if this will cope with ARP for the other IPs. We are using a subnet on the WA...

Re: General NAT access between local networks using multiple public WAN address?

Can anyone please verify if the following argument is correct: If I understand the packet flow diagram correctly, Source-NAT will never be reached since the packet path takes a shortcut directly to Dest-NAT in the prerouting step and will set the Guest Network 172.16.0.0 as the source address.

Re: Default priority DSCP and ToS

Unfortunately there is no default priority for DSCP/ToS (or for anything else), you have to create your own queues. As default Ros treats everything at the highest level of priority. Basically you have to create a queue for DSCP/ToS and lower everything else. General info: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/w...

Re: Connecting more geographic sites: wich vpn ?

. . .

3. Routing protocols, since you have about 15 sites, you should run somekind of dynamic routing protocols, like RIP or OSPF. OSPF is suitable on L2TP links.
Try to avoid RIP or at least make sure you are using RIPv2. Ref: Understanding RIP Routing
