Re: v6.44.2 [stable] is released!

I don't know when it happened but the kid controls don't appear to accept times anymore. Not that it's important in the grand scheme of things.
It was working when it accepted only the allowed times but Mikrotik decided to add on times and off times which is odd.

Re: Assistance with kid control

Strange. I have mine setup the same way. My kids Mac address is set and the hours it can be active - not blocked, are set. And yes, the guide was not entirely helpful. Once blocked, you should see a B next to the device Includes the kids menu. Also, a firewall will is created at the top of your fire...

Re: Mikrotik as IPSec/IKEv2 client

I'm not sure anyone really knows how to do this as I've asked similar questions. I've tried using certificates but they just don't work. The guide is not very good and I think it needs updating with a fool proof step by step instructions list - with pictures! I'll be watching this thread for a solut...

Re: OpenVPN and Android

My internal IP is 192.168.60.1 for the vpn elements.
Perhaps some of my error is with the certs so can we start there please?

Every guide ive read does the certs differently for SAN and most guide assume knowledge and miss out tons of details. I just can't get this working.

Re: OpenVPN and Android

Could anyone help provide a real idiot guide to ovpn with Mikrotik and Android please? I have tried making a cert and configuring the ovpn client but can't get it to work. I have tired my certs generated, inside my Mikrotik, with L2TP and can't get that working either. All I can use is preshared keys!

Re: Feature request: CAPsManager - roaming

Any equipment you buy today will support 11r and 11k. Anything in the last 2 years will too. Almost all iPhones supported these standards for several years.

These standards are supported in all modern WiFi chipsets. It's up to vendors to implement on top.

Re: Mikrotik OLT ?

Just Google it. No offence. I tried coaxial direct copper. This has the SFP+ integrated to the cable. It works perfectly at 10G speeds. I should think that most if not all SFP/SFP+ modules will work. Although you should be looking at SFP+? I remember reading a few issues but don't remember the brand...

Re: Simple Queue question

It does look like the way I have it setup is to try and reserve or guarantee a minimum service. But that any one user can use all the capacity if available. To have 5 users, each will need to be manually setup with ip addressed and have a queue each. Seems like hard work. Is there another way of doi...

Re: Simple Queue question

Err. Just done a quick test on 6.34.6 it appears the simple queue isn't working. Both limit at and max limit are not working as I thought they did. I'll do some more testing tomorrow night, but you might be right with the limit at setting reserving capacity. If that's true then either set a simple q...

Re: Simple Queue question

The PCQ type works very well for me but..... PCQ is per connection queueing. From what I understand, it detects a connection based on ip. I haven't tested it for a while but I could be wrong on its effect. I'll test this weekend to find out. I seem to remember having it allow an individual user to u...

Re: Simple Queue question

The limit at parameter tells the router to give 2M to reach IP. The max of the connection is 10M. The PCQ type will use this information to try and guarantee 2M per ip. So.... Say you have 2 users. Each will get 2M. Total used will be 4M Say you have 5 users, each gets 2M with total 10M. Say you hav...

Re: Simple Queue question

Target = 192.168.0.0/24
Max limit = 10M
Limit at = 2M
Queue type = PCQ-UPLOAD-DEFAULT and also PCQ-DOWNLOAD-DEFAULT


I have one for the ISPQueue connection /16 and one for each smaller /24 group. These smaller groups has the main ISP queue linked using the PARENT=ISPQueue setting

Re: Is my 2011 dead after firmware update and config reset?

Not sure if you solved your setup. I use simple queues assigned as PCQ. "Max" is limit of broadband, "limit at" is the guaranteed minimum. Simple queues can be IP ranges or i think, individual IP address. It doesn't use ports. So, in your case, I would bridge all together for the LAN and use the sim...

Simple queues, total counters

Hi, When I setup a simple queue using PCQ, the total counters do not increment. PCQ download and upload are OK. The queue functions correctly. With default-small for the total, the counters remain blank. But, set the total to default and the counters start working. Very odd. Is that the correct setu...
