Re: v6.43rc [release candidate] is released!

I notice that in 6.43rc34 the /interface bridge vlan untagged= configuration no longer strips all the C-tags from a packet with multiple C-tags. Instead it only strips the top C-tag. Will this be the case in the production version? If so, would it be possible to reinstate the former behaviour as an ...

Re: MikroTik hAP Lite Ports 2 and 4 Shows links

I'm having exactly the same problem with hEX lites. The only thing I can think of that might be causing the problem is static discharges, but it seems extraordinary that Ethernet ports would be so fragile. (I can't imagine that they wouldn't have circuitry to protect against static discharges.) If t...

Failing Ethernet Ports on hEX lites

I've been having problems with failing Ethernet ports on hEX lites. I took one out the box this morning, configured it with the latest software (6.41.2), and one of the ports had failed by lunch time. About three or four hEX lites have failed on me like this. The problem manifests itself as a port L...

Setting an IPv6 Next Hop for BGP-Based VPLS

Is it possible to set the Network Address of Next Hop field in an MP_REACH_NLRI attribute to an IPv6 address for BGP-based VPLS?

If so, does this require a routing filter or is there a simpler way?

Re: EoIPv6

Good point.

However, as far as I am aware, GRE6 (/interface gre6) only supports routed tunnels (IP over IPv6), not bridged ones (Ethernet over IPv6): it lacks the tunnel-id attribute of EoIPv6.

EoIPv6

I’ve been experimenting with EoIPv6 (/interface eoipv6) and noticed that it doesn’t use GRE like EoIP. It uses EtherIP (RFC 3378) instead. A few notes about this. 1. EtherIP is archaic. RFC 3378, dated September 2002, ‘… describes the EtherIP, an early tunneling protocol, to provide informational an...

Using DHCP to Configure a Point-to-point (/32 Netmask) Link

Is there any way to use DHCP to configure a point-to-point link to a MikroTik router acting as a DHCP client? Specifically, is it possible to use DHCP to effect the following: ip address add address=20.1.1.1/32 interface=ether1 network=40.2.2.254 where ether1 is the interface on which the DHCP clien...
