Re: When auto updating, Error connection timed out

I think it used to work, a while ago I used the auto-update to go from 5.x to 6.x
But now it is not working. When will this be fixed? A smooth auto-update makes the world a safer place :)
It did used to work without issue. Now it is the ugly step child.

Re: When auto updating, Error connection timed out

OK, I'm completely at a loss at this point. My certified Mikrotik dealer says my DNS is correctly configured, and I did a fresh net install on this recommendation but no luck. I even created a firewall rule on the input chain to accept all and put it at the top of the list. I have done back flips t...

Re: When auto updating, Error connection timed out

This is ABSOLUTELY a bug and has persisted for "ever". Mikrotik is a great "do anything" black box, but in this one area of updating through the System/Packages has and is a complete joke. Wait a moment, it is a bug in the update server, a cloud webserver on the internet, not in the MikroTik router...

Re: When auto updating, Error connection timed out

This is ABSOLUTELY a bug and has persisted for "ever". Frankly, I gave up after numerous posts that it is a bug, which was several years back. In my opinion, forget the feature exists (as it is completely unreliable). Mikrotik is a great "do anything" black box, but in this one area of updating thro...

Re: accessing Mikrotik RB1100 remotely

The easiest way to do so is to have a static IP address provided by your ISP and configured to your WAN interface. Remotely you would open WInbox, type in said IP and have full access. If you don't want or can't get a static IP then you would want to look into dynamic DNS. Link here: http://wiki.mik...

Package upgrade Error: Could not resolve DNS Name

In the mikrotik, under DNS, I have the Comcast primary and secondary correctly entered. Package update feature works very unreliably depending which version. My edge router is currently wide open for testing so I am positive it isn't there. All computers on same network can resolve DNS without issue...
