Re: Issues with OSPF

I would try setting the Network-Type =Broadcast on all interfaces rather than Point to Point.

With Network-Type=Point to Point no router is elected as designated router under OSPF. This is good on a wireless segment of an OSPF network but perhaps not so good in your situation ?

Re: Firewall setup problem

That is pretty normal. These are attempts by outside hosts trying to connect to common ports on your router such as RDP (3389) etc.

Disable logging for the Input rule if you want to stop seeing these entries. You can always enable the logging again for diagnostics if necessary.

Re: vlan isolation not working

Could you not set all of the VLAN Horiizon's=1 in the Bridge Port settings to isolate these ?

My understanding is traffic is not passed between ports with the same Horizon setting in the bridge.

If any VLAN in the bridge is to be shared/accessed by the others set it to Horizon=0 (for example).

R5SHPn minpci card and heating problem ?

We are looking to put one of these in an Acconet EN5820 enclosure.

These are made from plastic so I wonder if the heat will be an issue ?

Upgrade to 5.14 / RB1100 not booting anymore.

I always cross my fingers when doing an upgrade remotely as it can crash. If it crashes you need to get into the car and go to site. My advice would be to only do it if you have to.

You cannot run different versions of packages when you update.
