Re: Incorrect time on 2011UiAS-2HnD

Just wanted to add that if I manually set the correct time, a few days later it's wrong again.

Re: 6.37.1 Bug 2011UiAS-2HnD

Your reply really isn't helpful

If the feature is there, then it should work and work correctly, if it doesn't then that is a "bug".

I've discovered a really annoying bug on my 2011UiAS-2HnD router board running 6.37.1 I've got got three separate dhcp servers / pools 192.168.1.1 on bridge and 192.168.3 & 192.168.1.4 setup on other interfaces.

Capture all dns requests and pass them to my dns

I need to overcome the problem of my Android devices overriding my network assigned DNS - as now many are hard programmed to contact google dns directly.
And capture all requests to global dns servers and forward these requests to my choice of dns server.

Any ideas??

Re: The scripting is driving me mad :(

Thanks # boen_robot. That was the information I needed. This is a little script (my first working one ever with my Routerboard) the purpose is to detect my dynamic public ip (not my router wan ip which is inside a second nat) and then update a hairpin nat rule for that so that users inside my lan ar...

Re: Script to change hairpin NAT rule DST.Address when public IP changes.

That's great. However, my public IP is not my router IP so I needed a way to find out what my actual public IP is - plus I wanted to experiment with scripts. I find playing is the best way to learn. :D I put the question on the beginners forum after, because I thought it was a better place, where a ...

Re: amazon fire tv not getting dhcp address after lease expires on mikrotik router

You could try adjusting the lease to a short time - five minutes for example and disconnect or switch off all the other devices, to see then if the lease renews - this will demonstrate if another device is conflicting for some reason. It is also a good idea to make sure that the dhcp pool isn't givi...

Script to change hairpin NAT rule DST.Address when public IP changes.

I have my routerboard setup to use DDNS cloud services. And a hairpin NAT rule so that when users inside the LAN type the web address of an internal website not to route outside the network, but forward to the local address. Note: The router sits between another nat and the internet, so the WAN of t...

Re: IP cloud problem

Create a scheduled script to run every 30 mins for example. This has worked for me.

Re: DDNS via cloud is not automatically updating

I'm not using dyndns or anther ddns providor apart from Mikrotik's own cloud service, which works well aprt from not updating as it should. I have got around the problem by creating a schedule script to "force-update". This seems to have solved the problem.
