Re: 6.31 released

Upgraded two of my RB450G and both of them run for 15 hours now ... no reboots, no issuses.... both of them run ipsec, l2tp, ipip, ospf, capsmanv2, about 15 queues and about 60 firewall rules ... Also upgraded 850, 2011, 751, 951, 800, 711, 912 and crs125 devices without problems to 6.31.

Re: Using Mikrotik as Business Network

CRS switches can't do STP or RSTP (yet?) unless you take ports out of switch group and put them on a bridge which will increase load on CPU. CRS224 has 400MHz CPU which will prove as a bottleneck in such configuration.
