Re: Impossible to downgrade from ROS 6.42.7

I watched the log right now, it says "omitting package system_6.38.5 min version is 6.39"
so it sounds like i can't downgrade.
is there any way to override this lock?

Re: Same Multicast group with multiple sources

after some tests, i noticed that the problem is related to the coexistence of both router configured with pim multicast... with only one router i have no problem, when i turn on the second one, it seems it blocks multicast packets delivered from the first one, but the behavior is not so deterministc...

Re: Question about MAC addresses on Routerboards

Why ? This often happens when people copy configuration from one board to another using backup/restore instead of export/import. Yes, actually i did a restore from a backup of another RB, but this isn't the eth1 mac address of the cloned router, but an internal mac address, as i mentioned in the pr...

Did you tried /interface ethernet reset-mac-address eth1 ? Yes, and the strange thing is that it worked for a routerboard and it didn't for another rb, same model and same firmware...

Question about MAC addresses on Routerboards

Hi all,
yesterday, using neighbors discovery in winbox, i noticed that two rb493G routerboards were using the same Mac Address on eth1.
Why ?
How can i force a routerboard to use its real mac address on ETH1 interface ?

Thank you.
