CRS series and reading the FDB by SNMP?

I'm trying to map a network with NetXMS and it's problematic with locations that have CRS series units. NetXMS is not able to read the Forwarding DataBase, it complains that the FDB is unavailable I'm working with existing switches and don't have a lab unit here, so I can't work out if it's a config...

Re: UDP to TCP for wireless interference?

As far as i'm aware there is no mechanism to 'convert' UDP to TCP or vice versa as they are fundamentally different protocols. For instance there's no sequence numbers in UDP. So let's assume you did the opposite and wanted to go TCP-UDP-TCP well how do you recreate the sequence numbers on the other...

Re: How do I downgrade CHR to specific version?

The question was how do I get the NPK files since there's no CHR package to download on the website
As it turns out, the answer is to use the x86 image, copied that over and clicked downgrade and it worked fine
Cheers

How do I downgrade CHR to specific version?

I'm testing out The Dude and I need to make the version number the same. Dude server / CHR is currently 6.38.3 and other routers are on 6.38.1, rather than upgrading routers I want to downgrade the CHR to that same version. How can I do it though? I can't see a package for the CHR to download and co...

Re: Introduction to the dude?

Re: mAP lite

Has anyone tried to power this via USB port on a laptop? Such ports can only provide 500mw but this says 3500mw maximum

Re: QoS over mesh network? How?

Can you explain further though? Because my understanding is you need to define some sort of maximum expected bandwidth to artificially cap the line speed.
