Re: v6.39.1 [current]

I had a very annoying issue when upgrading an RB3011 today. This was probably because I've tried repartitioning it in previous RouterOS versions (unsuccesfully of course, since this is only officially supported since 6.39.1). I upgraded from RouterOS 6.38.5 to 6.39.1. This caused it to get stuck in ...

Re: Is VRRP working in 6.38.5?

From your description it sounds like the VRRP broadcasts don't make it to the other routers. Might there be a firewall for inbound traffic on these firewalls that blocks this?

Re: wAP AC PoE Compatibility - No Gigabit

We just installed a couple of wAP AC's powered by a RB260GSP last week, and those all show their Ethernet ports running at 1 Gbps. This is with the latest RouterOS (6.36.2).

Re: HAP AC

I think the biggest thing is that it's not using local forwarding, which means that the CPU is tunneling the traffic back to the CAPSMAN. You think that without CAPSMAN would achieve a better result? mavink : Can you test it without CAPSMAN and with disabled connection tracking? I might have some t...

Re:

Was it in fastpath mode?
AFAIK it is; the "allow fastpath" setting is on and there are no firewall rules (this is an internal AP used for testing, and all traffic is handled by the CAPsMAN router). The complete config is available here:

Have you any screenshots? Please share it with us.
That's 80 MHz, the Macbook connected as "877.5Mbps-80MHz/3S". But the limiting factor appears to be the CPU in the hAP AC, not a lack of wireless bandwidth. What would you like to see screenshots of?

Re: HAP AC

RB3011 will not have hw encryption support enabled in ROSv6.
HW encryption works only with Ipsec.
That's good to know. Is hardware encryption for IPSec already enabled form the RB3011, or are you still working on that?

Am I reading it correctly? 16MB storage ONLY? So... no partitions and a problematic upgrade process? Is this possible? This is the same as the HAP Lite; the upgrade file is loaded in RAM. I've never had a problem upgrading those, but it would have been nice to have enough storage for two partitions.

Re: Support for ACME/Let's Encrypt certificate management [SOLVED]

This would be a great feature. Configure a couple of hostnames you want certificates for, and then have the firewall automatically request/renew them with letsencrypt.org. This will save a lot of time, especially when using services that require a valid certificate such as SSTP VPN's.

Re: Cloud Hosted Router

I don't think they really know Mikrotik RouterOS. If they did they wouldn't say that there will be a significant processing overhead because of IDE.
Once Mikrotik boots it pretty much writes almost nothing to the disk. So there is no disk IO to cause any load :P
That was my exact response :D
