I can't get RoMON to work. When I try to connect with ssh it simply keeps on asking for password over and over again without actually connecting. Ping and discovery work. Anyone with same problem?

Re: How critical is grounding with LHG 60G

That is why there are gas discharge units and surge arresters for proper static discharge. If the only reason is the static build up in the grid, there is really no point to do that since it is already attached directly to the master and if the UTP grounding is also part of it, then, there is a real...

How critical is grounding with LHG 60G

I am using a couple of LHG 60G model RBLHGG-60ad. Next to the UTP there is a grounding connector. How critical is to use this? Should it be grounded directly to the master/tower? Is this grounding pin connected with the grounding UTP also? Is there any grounding loop danger?

I am having a dhcp problem also with VLANs. One of the voip devices gets an IP from a different dhcp-server VLAN every time I reset the switch. If I reset the device after then dhcp assigns proper IP. I will be sending a supout to support about this.

It is only a matter of time. As things get smaller power consumption will eventually decrease and passive cooling will be possible.

Yes, I think RB1100AHx4 would be perfect, thank you. I thought RB1100 was not passive cooling though. I had older models and they were not for sure. I agree, CCR1009 is an overkill for what I want.
