Re: RB912UAG-5HPnD-OUT not working!

That'll sure do it :lol:

Also be sure when testing that your Ethernet cable has all 8 wires connected (look at RJ45). Some inexpensive cables (shipped with cheap soho 10/100 routers for example) only have 4 wires so will not work for PoE.

It appears the to-port in both examples is 9400. In this case the first rule will work and the second will be ignored.

Try changing the to-port=9401 for the second rule to redirect to port 443.

Then any connects to port 9401 should be redirected to port 443.

Re: fairly basic "access point" issue...

I will assume you have a bridge containg Ether1-5 plus wlan ? Ensure you have no src-nat rule in place and delete any DHCP server's and DHCP Relay's In this enviroment you should not need any DHCP as the request's will be passed through the Bridge to your DHCP anyway. Also disable ALL firewall rules...

Re: Is That possible to pass Torrents from 2nd Gateway ?

it should be done by these rules. but the problum is mikrotik does'nt understand p2p traffic, torrent works even if u drop all-p2p traffic. i have filter rules to block torrent traffic with keywords. You could try L7 rule... /ip filter layer add name=bittorrent"^(bittorrent protocol|azver$|get /scr...

Re: Understanding switch performance

I did a quick test based on your config with some minor changes to suit my environment. I used a DHCP Client on E1 instead of PPP and different IP's due to a conflict with yours :-) Basically it seemed to work much as would be expected. I did a copy from two ports on the same switch group and a copy...

Re: Enable SSH & Winbox & Telnet with 5.x OS

It is common to have firewall rules on the Input Chain to drop access to the router. If you do not have any Input rules then your packets should be fine. It might be useful to create a firewall entry on the Input chain with a source ip of 10.0.0.0/8 and action of log to log your access attempts. If ...

Re: Understanding switch performance

Are you running DHCP ? If so I assume you have the DHCP server attached to the Bridge ?

Any chance of sharing the /export compact ? (Req RoS v5.12)

I've a RB493 here and a NAS so i can do a quick test for you.

Re: wmm-support, yeah, but does it interfere?

From what I understand WMM does not work with NV2 as it has it's own QoS mechanism (NV2-QoS). http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Nv2

In answer to "will it interfere" I have a site migrated to NV2 which still has WMM=Yes on the wireless Settings and it seems to be ignored by NV2 so you should be OK.

that tool you mention has only one parallel TCP connection, which will give you similar results. you need to use something, that can make 100 or more parallel connections. basically you are not loading the link at all.

Throughput means not from laptop to router, but through the router. You need to do a large number of parallel connections through the device to some other powerful machine. Also make sure that the bottleneck is not your laptop. Also it sounds like you did one connection test. That doesn't adequatel...

I have deployed Dual Wireless OSPF links and they do work well and provide the required redundancy. Mine have historically been on RB433 with 2 x R52N cards. Certainly should work with 4 X SXT's and 2 x RB750G's running OSPF. I do recall there were some minor tweaks required to the example on the Wi...
