kerberos

Wed Feb 19, 2014 7:46 pm

kerberos support for ssh logging.
i may be bombarded her to use radius with user-manager. problem is that radius is not as secure as kerberos. if you want to have same password for winbox and ssh you have to store and send passwords in plain-text !!!

don't you think that is a security hole ?

secure store local users passwords

Wed Feb 19, 2014 7:49 pm

it is verry simple to crack local user password once you have access to binnary backup for example.
Store them in sha or blowfish.
If you do this they can be exportable via /export. Also please note that importing them would be a really nice feature.


as a side note please read this and THIS.
please read my post again, because you completely missed my point. I said - why even bother encrypting it? it will just take a little more time to read. Better deal with your other security hole - why can somebody take your router and do what he pleases?
Are really so ignorant ? Why even bother ?

connection lists. split ports in separate columns

Wed Feb 19, 2014 7:55 pm

/ip firewall connection
25    tcp      212.77.100.128:80     91.xxx.xxx.xxx:52378  established 2h47m39s  
issuing below command:
print where src-address=212.77.100.128
will not print src addres becouse you have to write it with port. what if you do not know the port or you are just not interested in it ?

under winbox you can filter it by src-address and it works. why there are differences in console experience and winbox ?



-----------------------------


ok scratch this one. i have figured out to use scripting
/ip firewall connection print where src-address~"212.77.100.128"

general purpouse prefix lists

Wed Feb 19, 2014 8:10 pm

prefix lists for bgp, ospf etc. not only rip. once done you can store prefixes in some separate place making filters refer to them and resulting in more clear configuration

if you set an ethernet/sfp interface as disabled link is still up. how about phisically (elecrically) disable it as well. just like a decent switch does

case insensitive mac address formats acceptance

Wed Feb 19, 2014 8:19 pm

if you want to find a mac address on a bridge host table you have to write it case sensitive. how about accepting it in case insensitive ?
This may be for some people a cosmetic feature but still noce one.

loopback interface access.

Wed Feb 19, 2014 8:50 pm

simply show loopback interface in interface lists.
then you will be able to add addresses to it and not make a dirty empty bridge hack.

Hi!

Need snmpget, snmpwrite, snmpwalk tools to monitor and control status of remote network hardware via router. For example, monitor UPS via snmp, reboot hardware and so on.
Yes, ups package already exist but it capable with APC only and interface cable lenth is limiting factor...
Really need. Thx!

Copy cell feature

Thu Feb 27, 2014 11:27 am

Often MAC or IP address should copy manually from winbox. I suggest to make "cell copying" command for more convenient work...

We tried CAPsMAN this week. It seems us a good tool, We haven't tried all features at the moment and we are planning to use it without SSL certificates exchange in an hotel in the next week.

We would like to suggest some enhancements for radio parameters managements.
  • The frequency provisioning does not permit to set the "auto" frequency value
  • The frequency provisioning does not permit to set the country value resulting in illegal frequency channel (in fact we cannot use the channels 2467 and 2472 that are permitted in italy)
  • Generally speaking it will be usefull having a greater control on CAP's radio parameters setting (country, power, frequency mode, antenna gain, DFS mode, etc...)
  • May result usefull let the CAP use its own radio parameters configuration, when implicit default provisioning rule is applied, or when configurations without radio parameters explicitly setted are used.

NAT64: Tayga

More info:
http://www.litech.org/tayga/
http://blackhold.nusepas.com/2014/04/nat64dns64/

it should be easy to implement, install tayga package (121kb) and configure twice firewall rules...

please, it is really important due ipv4 is out and now if you want to redirect users from a wisp you need to use policy routing and you need IPv4 inside your network to make it work.

thanks you much!

I would love to get a url-server/filter command implementation what Cisco provides. (Do a search for "PIX/ASA URL Filtering" for an example of what I am referring to).

The basic idea being any website being accessed first does a quick hand-off to the filter server for a yes/no response. If yes is returned then the router allows the access to continue. If a No response is returned than the Router passes you back to the url-filter server for a block reason.

I realize that you can proxy, but this feature would open up RouterOS to the possibility alternate content control without the need of proxy servers.

Just a thought.

Next feature request for Access Points (Like metal, BaseBox, etc) and their LEDs:

It'll be just fantastic for us to be able to not only add wireless signal strength to LED1-LED5 (which is somehow pointless when they're configured as access point) but alternativly CPU load and/or bandwidth utilization (in % of the theoretical configured maximum)... THIS would really help us a big deal.

Thanks,

Some features have already been requested before, to better manage this, you can register on the Wiki and cast your vote there:

http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/MikroTik_ ... e_Requests

Of course, in addition, it would be great if you also posted a message here, explaining why you need that particular feature. And as usual - search before you post, maybe a topic exists already.
normis,

Wiki link is down, there is some other specific place to do feature request or here's the right/official place?
My feature request would be to have an option to turn on/off (checkbox) dynamic mode on "/ip pool" so we can have the opposite behaviour of:
Note: Whenever possible, the same ip address is given out to each client (OWNER/INFO pair).
Better if it could be possible for each pool :)

It would be very appreciated by many. Big thanx!

Would be perfect in IP/ROUTES Check-Gateway to be able to specify an IP-Adress other the the default Gateway.

In Germany we get more - and more proconfigured AVM Fritzboxes as a DSL Connecting-Point.

The box is always Pingable - even if the connection behind is down. Script is possible but complicated.

---

And by the way...
Optical nice (something like UNIFI with hidden cables) RB with (RB95xxx) with 2,4 AND 5 GHz would be perfect.

And... don't forget the perfect DUDE. Its still in beta and send's me email's even if the server is down for only some seconds.
Would be perfect to give a time-limitt (if down 1 minute...)

Thanks. RB is "nearly" perfect - good stuff.

IPv6 DNS Router advertisement

Sun May 11, 2014 4:31 pm

I hope the title says it all.

We bought the CRS125-24G-1S-2HnD for the express purpose of getting IPv6 running properly on our network. Getting everything up and running, only to find that we could not advertise local DNS servers via RAs, was very disappointing! I am however very impressed by the device and by RouterOS in all other respects.

If anyone knows a clean way to do this from Windows, feel free to reply here or email me directly. I'll be very thankful!

In the meantime I'll hope this feature comes to RouterOS!

Please implement logging possibility when bridge port interface role changes. If something happen in my STP enabled network, I can`t see where was an issue and which of my routerboard changed it`s port state. Furthermore debug log should show BPDU message detail logs. But now even debug log can`t show nothing regarding bridge interface role changes.

If I have opened a firewall rule, a Button to clone this rule.

I have a lot of INPUT rules, which are only different by the src IP Address.
So I can clone the rule, change the SRC IP and apply the rule.
Webmin (www.webmin.com) have it implemented for the firewall settings.

thanks

The pages already deleted

My Feature request:
1. Utilize the USB for NAS and Cache.
so we can connect a Hard disk and use as NAS and cache (to save bandwidth)
2. Support PHP please. so we can run the PHP script on Mikrotik Router.
Now the memory size already big enough and also the Processor also fast enough.
By allowing PHP Script it will make the Router more flexible and powerful.

And also Better WEB UI / More user friendly.

Thank you .

I want to suggest adjustable boot-delay (under /system routerboard settings), up to 255 seconds, for all RouterBOARDs.
This would allow some safety against bricking by repeated power loss (i.e. in case electrician connects power only for a few seconds router won't yet start to boot and there would be no risk of data corruption due to power loss during boot).

We find inability to trigger commands/scripts based on events to be very limiting, especially in MPLS VPN deployment.

The following is necessary:
1) Ability to specify inside RADIUS reply which commands/scripts to execute (e.g. similar to Cisco-AVPair)
2) Logging target to send every new log line to a script (so there is no need to use a hack with scheduler executing a script every N seconds)

Relatively cheap FTTH CPE

Tue Aug 19, 2014 3:22 pm

Somethink lie RB951Ui-2HnD or RB951G-2HnD with SFP slot. We really need:
-single SFP slot for optical UPLINK
-SFP slot in confiurable VLAN aware switch (we have trunk on optical uplink with IPTV in separate vlan and we need to pass IPTV to one or two ethernet ports)
-at least 5 ports (5 ethernet ports and 1 sfp port will be much better)
-integrated 2.4GHz wifi
-one type with plastic case (like RB260GS) with integrated wifi antennas
-second type "board only" with U.FL antena connectors - we have own design of metal wall-mount case in which we can splice optical cable and put optical CPE (switch or mediaconverter) in it, we can put bare board in this case and use pigtails to pass antennas outside this box
-maybe mikrotik can design their own wallmount box where optical cable can be spliced and integraded routerboard in this box...

- All openvpn features.
- Auto dns lookup when non ip value is entered. Would be very handy to have router os to accept domain names for more features.
- Make adressess list true lists that can hold all kind of unique ip adresses or even hostnames in a list. Not just ranges.
^- and/or make it possible to add more sources and destinations at certain places. (Like mangle.)

Please, create universal versatile graphing that allows user to set whatever value that is readable in ROS to be graphed. Combined graphing (e.g. CPU, memory and number of connected clients together in one graph) would be something extra!

And please, ensure that power loss, reboot or ROS upgrade will not erase old graphs. It is still unsolved bug that emmerges very often still in 6.18 (contemporary latest).

Normis,

you know very well that this is not the requested functionality - getting values via snmp takes time and resources, what is worse, it needs active connection to the device. I talk about autonomous graphing that will work within the ROS even if the device is disconnected from the network.

At least, I wish the graphs were stop disappearing. Finaly. Some day.

And anyway - are you working on speeding up usb storage opertions and usb storage reliability? It is tragical and too much CPU time hungry.

I would like a graceful BGP and OSPF shutdown

when I reboot my router it doesn't bring down the OSPF and BGP connections and I have to wait for its peers to realize its dead

That can take a while.

and you can't just stop the BGP / OSPF instances as they will not restart on reboot !

Both of my other brands of firewalls and routers support graceful ospf/bgp restart. It's very nice when you are making a change to the routing process but don't want to dump all routes.

That isn't graceful restart. Graceful restart means "hold your routes until I come back, wait up to x seconds for me to finish my operation then update routes after we reestablish adjacency". The change you requested is best handled with bfd.

I would have to disagree.

By using BFD (i looked at it, it just makes convergence faster. Good, doesn't work for me as 1 device doesn't do BFD ..)

A graceful shutdown, would do a graceful shutdown of OSPF/BGP, which would mean removing them from the network, not just turning it off.

when I work on a OSPF node, i usually disable the ospf instance, leave it for a bit till all the routes have been recalced. then I can reboot as need.

BFD detects when the peer goes away based on the interval of the BFD messages x multiplier.. So .25 second message X 3 multiplier = .75 second detection time. If OSPF is shut down on an interface, BFD will get shut down and in .75 seconds, the routes on the other end will get dropped.

Graceful restart is an rfc defined here: http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3623

It lets you take the OSPF process on a router offline for reconfiguration or some other reason and it notifies the remote peers to NOT drop routes for a default of 120 seconds. This is helpful if you need to make a change to the OSPF processes but still want to forward traffic through the router while the reconfiguration takes place.

If Im hearing you right, you want the remote peers to drop routes FASTER when you stop the ospf process on a router or reboot the router (faster than the ospf hello intervals). This would be BFD. So yes, BFD does speed up convergence. The second a router goes offline, everything needs to reconverge. BFD makes this happen faster.

Hi there Normis,

I would really appreciate having an save file/export ping/traceroute log function of each individual winbox ping/traceroute test.

Sometimes it comes handy when doing small tests and keeping them logged.

I know there are several 3rd party applications that actually do this. But having it integrated on ROS would make my life easier.

Regards

It would be very useful, to be able to setup a queue with target not only the interface name, but the interface's ingoing / outgoing /both direction.

for example I wish to configure mangle for internet QoS. Now we have to configure different mangle marking for incoming and outgoing traffic. But it would be much simpler, easier and fault-proof, if we could just mark the QoS priority markings in mangle and could have different queues for each traffic direction.
RouterOS as is, works perfectly for symmetric ethernet environments. But since we can use it for adsl router or even asymmetric wireless links, I think routerOS could provide some better tools.

Zabbix package for ROS ? more updated/actual Active queues ?

Thu Sep 11, 2014 1:26 am

is anyway to have native Zabbix support by RouterOS in frsbl future of it ?
also would personally welcome more updated/actual Active queues in RouterOS to handle/combat/prevent Network congestion. rather than static/notorious RED algo/type present already, which unsuable for production for number of reasons.
for example, RRED would be nice. aswell as other adaptive, attack/flooding-proof variants of AQM.
also bout moving RouterOS from vanilla Linux kernels to Zero Overhead Linux gossips - is actually such plans, yet ?
(this thing http://www.tilera.com/sites/default/fil ... aper_0.pdf meant, to be exact/specific)
also finishing/completing BFG routing implementation (auth and echo ?) also may be handy.

Add some planned upgrade feature, that gets done upon next RouterOS start, no matter if shutdown/reboot was graceful or not. This of course should be voluntarily and separately triggered with required packages being uploaded in advance. It does add some risks of course, but I bet some people would/might be willing to take them.

I know this could be done at some level using v6 partitioning or achieved with scripts, but either way, having such function that you can choose not to use if you don't want, is still better, IMO.

I would like that you will add a counter of errors (crc,drop,oversitse,collisions, e.t.c.).
It is desirable that you will add the iperf with the standard features, as well as the possibility
of using as a client or server. This tool needed for monitoring and diagnostic as well as will use
in a bundle with iperf which was installed on radios from the Ubiquiti Networks.

I need to show comments from users section at active tab in hotspot (comments r missing in active tab) , because my users are login with their mac address (MAC login method) so they appear in the active tab only with their mac not with there name nor their comments , it will be more easy if these mac address appear with their comment to easily know who is online

by the way if you comment any record in ip binding the comments will appear in hosts tab with this comment

thank u in advance

Hi,

I would like to request a feature to extend the OpenVPN possibilities.
I would like to run multiple OpenVPN instances on the mikrotik. One for my incoming clients, and a few for peer2peer vpn links between servers.

Setup:
Clients: share some IP space on IPv4 and IPv6 front, /27 and /64.
P2P links: use unique /30's between eachother. Used as connection point to offer OSPF routing over the links (and traffic).

Please, create universal versatile graphing that allows user to set whatever value that is readable in ROS to be graphed. Combined graphing (e.g. CPU, memory and number of connected clients together in one graph) would be something extra!

And please, ensure that power loss, reboot or ROS upgrade will not erase old graphs. It is still unsolved bug that emmerges very often still in 6.18 (contemporary latest).
I would love to see uptime graph added to the graphing section. That way we dont have to run an extra snmp machine.

PPTP/PPPOE interfaces (all PPP? more?) are disconnected then re-connected when clicking "OK" on their /webfig/#Interfaces.Interface page, even if nothing has changed. It probably shouln't do that.

For ease of use and functionality i would suggest to use TheDude for this - just remove probes, so no additional load anywhere, just network device map, where you can create device groups and operate with them (upgrade devices, for example). And if required, you can monitor your key routers in the network.

Linking scripts to VPN connection events

Fri Feb 27, 2015 3:42 am

There are couple of threads where users request feature to link scripts to firewall rules.
Those requests are logically rejected by developers cause this opens a pretty straightforward way to DDOSisng devices.

But there are other posts (in this thread inclusive) to link scripts to VPN events.
IMHO, this idea makes a lot of sense and is not open for DDOS attacks.
The need to use Scheduler or Netwatch for such simple task as "wake up my computer when I connect externally with VPN" is not very cool.

I've seen some requests to implement in ROS more global event triggering mechanism. It would be nice-to-have, but pretty sure, that it requires a huge development (and testing!) effort in comparison with enabling scripts for couple of selected objects, requested more often than others.

Could you please add latest drivers for Realtek RTL8111 ethernet controller? With actial ROS v6.27 it's randomly freezing eth interface. It's in the iface list, but no traffic can pass through.. Only reboot resolves this state, but only for short time (sometimes it's 3 days, sometimes it crashes after couple of hours). It's useless with such behavior..

Ability to specify which prefix from-pool to use on a specific interface.

Suppose ISP assigns a /60 and I want to specify WHICH of my /64s goes to which interface....
Currently, Mikrotik ignores the bits 61-64 and chooses on its own which of the 16 prefixes to use.

In Cisco, prefix and pool are masked together, and I am spoiled by this feature:
e.g. Loop0 -> ipv6 address ISP1POOL ::ff:0:0:0:1/64

If ISP assigns /60 I would like an ability like this:
ISP --> 2001:db8:0:c000::/60 -> pool ISP
I want to be able to hard-code:
ether1 = ::1:0:0:0:1/64 from-pool ISP -> 2001:db8:0:c001::1
ether2 = ::2:0:0:0:1/64 from-pool ISP -> 2001:db8:0:c002::1
ether3 = ::3:0:0:0:1/64 from-pool ISP -> 2001:db8:0:c003::1
GuestBridge = ::f:0:0:0:1/64 from-pool ISP -> 2001:db8:0:c00f::1

With current behavior, if I disable ether2 and reboot, ether3 would get 2001:db8:0:c002::1

Why not just block unwanted access by firewall?

exactly ... IMHO also the way more serious and clean solution

i just wanted to point out, that if someone does not want to "struggle" with firewall rules, there is also a specific ACL("-like") option here ;)

New property for /ip firewall mangle rules:

tcp-length(integer[-integer]:0..65535; Default: ) Matches tcp packets with specified tcp payload length or length range in bytes.

Useful for prioritizing zero-length ack packets over other upstream traffic.

As a rough hack/work-around we can use:

packet-size=40-52

(most TCP 0-payload-length packets I've seen are either 40 or 52 bytes depending on TCP options)

Add new attributes to PCQ classifier:

IP working only on plain IP packets (etherType=0x800),
when device working in bridge mode and passing VLAN, VLAN-in-VLAN, PPPoE packets - it's not properly placing packets in queue (they are bpassed).
Solution is to make few other checks on packet (need more clock cycles), so simplier will be to add src/dst hw addr policier ...

would be nice to had offline RouterOS wiki WITHIN routerboards and CCR. so consumers may configure it, to be ONLINE,to read online version of it, without throwing hair away or running panicking in circles.
wouldn't be much space in internal storage(flash is cheap as dirt, btw). even infrequently updated/obsolete/refernce version would help, but better it become part of ROS and keept up-to date with RoS itself, consitently/smoothly.
or had credit-card-sized CD-R disc with manul in html/pdf in it, but thats less cool/easy to use(and CD/DVD drives slowly become rare/uncommon in consumers desktops/portables).

and to fix ARP filtering(mysteriously work not always). and now bout NDP filtering its work?

how about ad-hoc routing protocols. batman, open garden alike non-propretary counterparts and etc variations.

I don't think there should be wiki inside the devices or on enclosed cd as it cannot be updated on live so it would make big mess.

I would suggest to have wiki according the ros version together with the ability to show differences between two ros versions directly on wiki pages. It would be very helpful for migration of configurations and scripts that normally fail and need to be debugged many times after an update.

Hi!

Need snmpget, snmpwrite, snmpwalk tools to monitor and control status of remote network hardware via router. For example, monitor UPS via snmp, reboot hardware and so on.
Yes, ups package already exist but it capable with APC only and interface cable lenth is limiting factor...
Really need. Thx!

Feature request:

Ability to specify boot-file-name on a per static lease basis. This would add much needed flexibility for rather than using the global setting at the 'ip dhcp-server networ' level where all clients receive the same file.

for now you should be able to create Network entry per IP with changed settings (just set address=x.y.z.h/32 netmask=24 or something)

Hi!

It would be fine to Support UAPSD. All Voip Wifi Phones did support and need this to work. I think many People need this to integrate in Offices an Hospitality Sector. Also Power Drain of Smartphones should be better. Is there any Progress about this thing?

Thank you

I have 30 IP's and MT always is sending request to radius server via first IP. Sometimes something is wrong and MT is trying send request via other IP.
Problem is that on radius server i have configured rules to only received radius request from one IP.

Thank you, so if I'm using ppp, my configuration should look like that:
add address=1.1.1.1 secret=passwd service=ppp,login src-address=212.121.121.121
1.1.1.1 - Radius IP
212.121.121.121 - IP address on MT which i would like use to send request to Radius server

That's mean that MT always sends request to Radius server by this IP ( 212.121.121.121), is it ?

Hi All,

could you add a "skip" option to netwatch system, please?
So when netwatch pings a host and sometimes it has a timeout the host goes down immediately... and goes up on the next ping. It occurs because of a transmission timeout or something else but the host doesn't inaccessible.
If we had a "skip" option to be set to "3" for example then the system could skip 3 timeouts and the host doesn't get down on a simple ping timeout until it has 3 timeouts. When "skip" is "0" all goes the same than before.

thank you much!

I second this! It has been asked before but it might serve to post this again. Same counts for `watchdog` feature. We should have the option to set the 'time' of a timeout and the amount of timeouts.
Now a single missing ping immediately reboots the router. At times this is not desirable....
Show your appreciation of this post by giving me Karma! Thanks.

I would appreciate the ability to use multiple radius servers simultaneously. For example, having a Hotspot setup that can use the built-in Userman package as well as say, a FreeRADIUS server. Right now, if you add multiple radius servers, RouterOS will use the first one unless it times out or otherwise fails. If the first radius server replies to RouterOS telling it that the user wasn't found, then it will stop looking despite there being multiple entries for hotspot radius servers.

Being able to set the RADIUS source IP to an interface instead of an explicit IP address would be useful... for me, at least!

We have ROS boxen that speak RADIUS over a VPN to our freeradius servers; if I could set the RADIUS request source IP to the VPN interface, it would make for simpler "cookie cutter" config when rolling such things out or making changes.

If you're doing this as part of the deployment it's probably better (IMHO) to use part of the config script to determine the IP address for that interface and set it up because it's a once off, while your IP address on an interface could change (or an interface could have multiple IP's)

Winbox SSL Certificate

Tue Dec 08, 2015 7:53 pm

It would be really great if you could add feature, that certificate is needed on client to directly connect to winbox from anywhere. We have a lot of client, and sometimes its realy annoying to always setup vpn, or always have to coonect to office and then to clients. It would be much easies, if i would have one certificate for all client, that I could connect directly to client via winbox securly.

Maybe anybody else opinion? :)

for primarily "emergency networking management" perhaps SSTP would b better choice because its more traversable, despite overhead, delays, IMHO.
otherwise, ROS support various things starting from IPIP and other stuff, which combined with (any kind of prefered)crypto would do trick.

p.s.
perhaps would make sense for mikotik - etend ipip to ipipv2 with gcm/eax/cwc/ocb-ciphers(aside cbc/xts legacy, ought to be deprecated soon)

Re: Zabbix package for ROS ? more updated/actual Active queues ?

Mon Dec 14, 2015 10:59 pm

also would personally welcome more updated/actual Active queues in RouterOS to handle/combat/prevent Network congestion. rather than static/notorious RED algo/type present already, which unsuable for production for number of reasons.
for example, RRED would be nice. aswell as other adaptive, attack/flooding-proof variants of AQM.
also bout moving RouterOS from vanilla Linux kernels to Zero Overhead Linux gossips - is actually such plans, yet ?
(this thing http://www.tilera.com/sites/default/fil ... aper_0.pdf meant, to be exact/specific)
also finishing/completing BFG routing implementation (auth and echo ?) also may be handy.
AQM... codel and fq_codel... the power that this can add, to the power user, and to a wizard setup, would just be insane seller...

Layer 2 tunneling over GRE.

Right now only IP (Layer 3) over GRE is supported, and EoIP uses the GRE protocol number, but is actually a different protocol w/ a similar header layout. Linux already support for L2 GRE (gretap), so hopefully not too onerous development.

Separated or dedicated vcpu at CCR to process control-plane and data-plane. Or maybe the next ccr platfrom has 2 socket CPU, which separated to process control-plane and data-plane.

I know it seems silly but please consider the benefit of it.

Route availability base on an remote IP.

I would like to have route availability based on some other IP. Let's say you add a new option below Check Gateway that would be something like check another gateway (my gateway's gateway for example) or just any other IP like 8.8.8.8. And if that IP becomes unavailable over that specific route it can make it unreachable/inactive so other route with higher Distance can became in charge. Check Gateway option does not work when your provider puts router on your premises. And if provider's router loses connection to it's remote router, you still have your gateway (because you have a router on your premises) and so for you, gateway is reachable, but you actually don't have internet access and that route looks good.

It would help very much in regards to failover.

I know that currently this can be achieved by using Netwatch and some scripting but it would be much easier if it were available directly on the route's properties.

nginx package/service

I'd really like to have an nginx server inside (or at least as an add on package) in routeros. It opens up endless possibilities for application level based forwarding, reverse proxying, caching etc. I believe it's also useful for home users when they have only a single public ip: this way internal http based services could be easily mapped into a single ip.
I'm aware that one might achieves this by installing an openwrt meta package then install nginx into it, but I feel that would be a huge waste of resources.
thanks

Well, even with the option to ping some specific address (other than the GW) you would still need to create a /32 route that forces the test target via a particular interface, or else the route will flap as the GW points to failed link, ping fails, route changes to backup path, ping starts working (via backup), primary route re-activated, pings fail, etc etc etc.

Well, even with the option to ping some specific address (other than the GW) you would still need to create a /32 route that forces the test target via a particular interface, or else the route will flap as the GW points to failed link, ping fails, route changes to backup path, ping starts working (via backup), primary route re-activated, pings fail, etc etc etc.
The idea is that for the 'ping address' you define on the route, the pings to it will always go through that route's gateway address/interface.
If that route's gateway/interface is unreachable/down then the 'ping address' shouldn't get routed via any other route (even if there is another route to it). Otherwise it would be useless apparently (as you described).

In terms of the linux kernel and its networking, yes, obviously there needs to be a /32 route to that 'ping address' via that gateway/interface, and I would also add a second 'unreachable' route with distance 2 so that it won't get routed via another less specific route when the first route is down.
But all that could be handled/abstracted by routeros iteself in the background and not shown in /ip route (that would be confusing otherwise).
And all that in a way that those /32s don't interfere with other traffic to that IP (ie different/hidden routing tables).

The end result would be less work for the end user/admin, less room for errors and a much cleaner/intuitive configuration.

It believe it shouldn't be that difficult to implement.
But I wouldn't really mind if it weren't (since it can be achieved by other means, as mentioned already).
I just find it a useful feature :)

Besides, many things were added over the years that could be implemented via scripting or other methods and simplified our lives. Just to name a few: dns names on vpn intefaces, interface lists, dynamic dns client, automatic tcp mss clamping on tunnels, automatic ipsec setup on tunnels, etc, etc, etc).
Did anybody object to those because they already had scripts for them? ;) I know I didn't (even if it took me a looong time to replace my already stable scripts to those new features - which are very useful of course!)

Oh I'm ALWAYS in favor of making things 'just work right' via the usual config, especially overy scheduled scripts.

I think the suggestion is a good idea. I was simply adding to the other comment that a netwatch can accomplish the goal - noting that even specifying a remote ping target requires one more piece.

If implemented, I would expect to see a dynamic static /32 route in the routing table, and a dynamic secondary /32 blackhole.

I hope they can add two things for the new RouterOS versions

One, Is that the OVPN client could support UDP connections, this because the OpenVPN servers in Linux (used plenty in all over the world) use this as default, and it will be pretty good feature to choose one of those in the config

Two, support TLS connections trough OVP Client, ussing ta.key for authentication, this is a very good security feature that is used also in OpenVPN.
No hand shake, no risk to be hacked or steal the certificates.....

I hope you can consider my suggestions.

Thanks a lot

Some time ago the possibility to change dynamic simple queues was removed, so my script which adds "packet-marks" parameter stopped working.

Is it possible to create a template for the dynamic simple queues which are created for PPPoE users, so that I can specify some parameters like "packet-marks" or "queue" or "parent" there?

create a queue for local traffic and put it on the top. it will catch all local traffic, and all the rest will be caught by 'personal' queues

p.s. if you won't set any limits on that queue, don't forget to change at least something (like queue type) for this queue to actually work

Fasttracking that traffic you want to be excluded from queues is much more efficient.
But keep the exclusion queue for the cases when some connections couldn't be fasttracked.

Please add support for EAP types on VPN connections as you do for wireless. Without EAP support, many security features such as NAP enforcement (using Microsoft NPS as RADIUS) won't work. Specifically, we need support for PEAP and EAP-MSCHAPv2 to get NAP working.

Also consider allowing the ability to set the NAS-Port-Type RADIUS attribute for VPN connections. Currently, ROS sends a NAS-Port-Type of Async for VPN connections. While this might be appropriate for a Dial-Up PPPoE, it is not appropriate for non-Dial-Up VPN connections, and would give us more flexibility in configuring access policies when using Microsoft NPS as a RADIUS server.

When setting up a radius server, I *really,really,really* need these

1) having a secondary (or multiple) IP address in the event the first IP becomes unavailable or times out.

2) i would like the option of putting a DNS instead if an IP (ie. radius1.myradiusserver.com, radius2.myradiusserver.com) in the address field.

I have turned off connection tracking for most connections (using raw table), so it won't be efficient in my case.

You're best bet there is to install a hypervisor on that server and run the CHR rather than the standard x86 ROS. Not only will you be able to use the onboard NICs, but you'll also be able to use more than 2GB RAM, and set up multiple instances so you can run in high availability.

That being said, you should have researched hardware compatibility before buying a server.

DNScrypt for those filtering ISPs and for added DNS security.
Allowing the installation of software and user made libraries (perhaps java?)
Switch based STP variants and fixing route learning (all devices connected to CRS lose internet connectivity but not LAN when changing port router uses).

I know these have been asked for but for DNScrypt nothing is being said anything about despite a significant number of request (even consumer routers are using it).

Mikrotik needs to be ahead when it comes to network related features compared to what openwrt and consumer routers offer. Cant call yourselves a cisco alternative if its missing features. it doesnt need to come with printer and file sharing in the box (but software from others if can be installed can provide this feature).

I'd like to have a new feature: "graceful reboot".

Things to do before actual reboot:
1. disconnect ppp users (while not accepting new ones)
2. transition vrrp to backup state
3. disable external bgp peers
4. wait for routing convergence

Without these, there is a time frame when traffic loops and/or goes to a black hole; ppp users experience an abnormal connection termination.
Currently I have a script to do it, but it would be better to have it in the RouterOS.

Hi guys,

Using it like this , the next radius server will be used only when the first did not answer.

There is a way to configure it to be distributed the radius events ... like i configure 4 radius server .. and all radius traffic be process / 4 ?
Client 1 -> radius 1
Client 2 -> radius 2
Client 3 -> radius 3
Client 4 -> radius 4
Client 5 -> radius 1 ....

got it ?

I´m not saying that the actual way it works is bad or good i´m just thinking that could be nice have this option.

Add more details into System > History like:
  • More details in Action, the "filter rule changed" is to short, enter the details of the rule
  • Action Tab should write about "Delete/Insert/Add/Move 5 rules" with description like chain/comment/etc.
  • If I work on SafeMode then the history entry should be have a flag SafeMode - I know what will be safe or drop

I created a second Radius Server with identical settings and changed the ip to an IP that is actually held by the same server, then i disabled the first entry, but mikrotik reports "Radius Server not responding". When i check the radius server logs, it show its authenticates correctly.

The radius server is set to listen on all ips and that is working, but for some reason the mikrotik is not receiving the response after the radius authenticates.

Hello!

Nice features to have:
1. IP firewall address lists could include one another (or firewall rules could match multiple lists at once, e.g. "src-address-list=list1,list2").
2. NAT parameter to-addresses could refer to an IP pool.

DHCP accounting through Radius

Would be nice if the routerOS dhcp-server allow logging with radius accounting.
We use dhcp-server from mikrotik (no radius auth) and we need have a log of each IP we offer to each client and when, through radius.

NOTE: accounting != auth

Accounting send "log" for each IP address leased or unleased to Radius server, regardless if IP address is served from external radius server or internal mikrotik DHCP server.

CloudFlare is about removing its API version 1 which allowed users to use get-only requests to modify settings.
I used an script + cloudflare free account to run my dynamic DNS

now in their new API, it is required to send header and ... https://api.cloudflare.com/#dns-records ... dns-record

it would be great if curl support become available

In any scripts for WAN failover, there's some difference for ipv4 and ipv6. When we test some host with /ping, we should know, what protocol (4 or 6) we use. For now, the only solution is to hardcode ipv4 or ipv6 addresses into script, hostnames can not be used, because we can not control, which address will be returned from :resolve.

So, it would be great, if :resolve command will have a parameter to resolve only ipv6(AAAA), only ipv4(A), or both(ANY).

Could we get a quickset mode for travel router. I'd like to have a mode that let's someone take a map lite and go to quickset and use it to log into the hotel wireless and have wireless repeater mode setup with an SSID they can log into for their devices. Ethernet could be setup with an option for local device access or hotel internet access if wired access exists in the room.

Right now there isn't really a mode that fits and it seems to require some manual config that is beyond the scope of what I would expect to train a traveling sales rep to deal with. Maybe there's a simpler method I'm overlooking. If so, someone please point it out to me.

We operate a lot of hotspots, using an external AAA/RADIUS solution.
It needs a NASID from the Mikrotik, and unfortunately Mikrotik sets this using ROuter Identity field.

The problem is that this limits us to one hotspot per router which is a huge waste of resources. We sometimes have to put 3 routers at a location to run multiple hotspots.

Can it be added that we place the NASID in the Hotspot Profile, and if it is blank it uses the router identity instead. That way it performs as it does now, but those of us who need different NASIDs can choose to do so.


What do y'all think?

hi

I'd like to see a dummy network interface like one available in generic Linux kernel (http://www.tldp.org/LDP/nag/node72.html).

If all physical interfaces are DHCP it might simplify things to be able to assign a static addresses to an internal interface to make routing and firewall rules simpler.

Small improvements:
1) First column is for rule numbers, logging indicator would better fit in second one, which is sort of status column already.
2) Add a button to easily toggle logging for rule. I often need logging rules that I only quickly turn on and off again, to catch just a few packets. Before this very nice feature that any rule can be also logging rule was added, I used to make a duplicate rule for the one I was interested in, turned it into logging rule and put it before original one. The huge advantage was that it could be enabled/disabled by just one click. With these new non-dedicated logging rules, it requires 3-4 clicks. It may not seem as too much, but it is a little annoying.

Right Click -> Show Columns -> Log. Voila!
You're right, it's there. But not visible by default and too far at the right and "lost" between other columns when enabled. Since logging is useful option available for all rules, IMHO it would deserve more prominent place. But ok, it is usable this way.

And about the toggle button, I might want to quickly not only turn logging off, but also to turn it on, so I think it would be very convenient to be able to do it using only one click. And there's plenty of space for one additional button in button bar.

I'd like to see a dummy network interface like one available in generic Linux kernel (http://www.tldp.org/LDP/nag/node72.html).

If all physical interfaces are DHCP it might simplify things to be able to assign a static addresses to an internal interface to make routing and firewall rules simpler.
just create a bridge (call it Loopback1 :)) and assign address to it
True dat. Thanks. Actually realized this almost immediately after posting. Still, for whatever reason, in Linux there is a dummy interface in addition to bridge. I wonder if there is some overhead involved.

I often miss "copy rule" feature in web management firewall setup. What I'd like to be able to do, is to create a new rule from the existing one so that instead of starting from blank (as in "Add New") I would start with the data of an existing rule.

While this might be really useful especially for firewall rules, I think it could also be nice e.g. in PPP and some other segments too.

If it hasn't been mentioned yet... In the wireless access-lists, you can provide the VLAN ID and VLAN Type for the client's traffic to be taged. In the registration table however, this information is not displayed. So once a client connects, you have no idea to which VLAN the traffic is going (especially when VLANs are assigned via AAA).

Can we include the VLAN information in the registration tables please?

It would be extremely useful in many cases to have a ppp interface dynamically created form the ppp secret (when more than one connection is allowed and/or there is no explicit server binding) to be automatically added to a named interface list when it's created and removed when it's deleted.

Basically there is no need to limit this to dynamically generated interfaces. It might as well apply to a static interfaces if there is an explicit server binding. In any case it would be a property in PPP secret. Something like "Add interface to list: <menu-of-existing-interface-lists>".

I'm sure this would be hugely useful for many users.

Hello it would be good to have optional Radius servers round robin rotation, not only from top to the bottom.

And in Tr069 we (in our configuration) feel like router identity would be useful information in inform update requests.

If that attribute would be writable that it would be easier to change router identity in initial provisioning instead of walk-around with .alter script download containing /system set identity..

i m looking into future hardware if possible i hope one day mikrotik can produce some thing like this


cpe with 2 wlan or more wlan cards and same on base station side to
advantages as under:-
bonding to increase speed
may b fail over 2 different base stations or more
different frequency
different channels like 10/20/30/40
and more possibilities are there

This has been asked here many times before. Mikrotik usually answers that /ip cloud depends on RouterBOARD serial number, so it can not be just added to x86 as it is. And there are no plans to work on any alternative solution.

+1 MT by default being a open resolver is a HUGE pita. You can't expect an ISP with thousands of customers to protect them all, and you can't expect thousands of Mikrotik users to know how to protect their router either. I know of multi 10GB/s ISPs that went down completely due to MT being used in DNS amplification attacks.

Yes, you can block it in firewall, but as soon as you do you loose piles of features (ala fastpath/fasttrack/connection tracking/etc). Silly that other services can be protected by /ip services, but not CRITICALLY VULNERABLE services, such as DNS, SMB, Proxy, Socks, etc. which is known to be used in exploits and DDoSes.

Would like every service MT runs (SMB, Socks, Proxy, DNS, etc.) to all have ACLs in /ip services AFAIK, and would be good to have it 'locked down' by default to say 1921.68.1.0/24 seeing that the default IP on hardware devices is 192.168.1.1/24.

Afaik factory default is 192.168.88.1/24, but I agree. On the other hand, DNS on MK is totally obsolete service. Running DNS service on internet gateway is fundamentally a security risc. It also does not support modern features like DNSSec, so I would rather go with Ubound or Knot running on dedicated host.

As is NTP Servers (ntp server magically disappeared from ROS in some version), web proxy, socks (really now, who still uses socks?), smb, and I'm sure other things too. Unfortunately, that seems to be what consumers want. Just really wish we could have all these things in separate packages so that we don't have to always have them installed.

Most of these services, belong on proper servers yes. I'm all for moving all these things (at the very least) to a meta router image, which is completely separated from ROS and installed at will, not by default. Userman is separated, dude is separated, I fail to see why the other stuff can't be made separated as well.

NTP server was always separate package, as long as I remember. Other stuff could be moved into one (or more) too, but there probably isn't good enough reason to do it (not counting your peace of mind :)). If you don't enable any of it, all this stuff does is taking few hundreds kilobytes of disk space at most.

And of course consumers want it, it's because it's useful for them. If you're big ISP, it does not make any sense to run e.g. DNS resolver on RouterOS (not in its current state with very limited features, that's for sure). But if you're home user or small office, then it's the exact opposite. Keeping dedicated machine for this stuff is huge overkill. Current routers are pretty powerfull and can easily handle all these little extras and still manage to stay bored.

Btw, I think SOCKS is very underrated. It works with TCP and UDP, support both outgoing and incoming connections, supports authentication, can be used as IPv4/IPv6 proxy, and still it's very lightweight. It may not sound as much now, since almost everyone took different path, but this all was available since 1996 (year of SOCKS5 RFC). Why things like HTTP CONNECT caught on instead of this is beyond me. It still has some fans. ;)

Filtering packets in chain=input can affect srcnat. So it would be nice to limit filtering to local routers's IP addresses. But it would be hard to maintain such a list of addresses, if the router's configuration is changed from time to time.

So here goes a feature request: an automatic address-list "local-router" (or similar name) which is generated automatically from the local IP addresses of the router.

P.S. Thanks to msatter who pointed out the existing
dst-address-type=local
option.

There is the option:
src-address-type (unicast | local | broadcast | multicast; Default: )

Matches source address type:

unicast - IP address used for point to point transmission
local - if address is assigned to one of router's interfaces
broadcast - packet is sent to all devices in subnet
multicast - packet is forwarded to defined group of devices
And this one can also be used if you have an dynamic WAN address.

Most definitely! The current "implementation of brute force protection" is a joke. A counter on port visits as opposed to actually checking whether the login succeeds or not.

The ability to utilize grouping of for example firewall filters is a matter of making network management more manageable and perspicuous, thus this is especially useful in complex environments. If you're familiar with Cisco ACL Object Groups you probably know what I mean...

RoS v7 wishlist

Sat Feb 11, 2017 2:19 am

RoS v7 wishlist 2017-02-11

I’m rather new to the MT-world since about a year ago and it’s probably way too late to influence R&D at this stage but anyhow, here is my wish list for v7:

- A good object oriented scripting language with a small “footprint” for embedded system such as Lua (eLua), Python, Squirrel, TinyC, Tcl, JavaScript, AngelScript, Picobit, Forth
- Object oriented interfaces for all hardware resources and network related elements for example:
Ethernet eth1 = router.hardware.ether1;

eth1.ip.address = “192.168.0.1”;
eth1.status = enabled;

log (“Eth1 - current speed: “ + eth1.speed);
- Script libraries.
- Event triggers on all objects that have properties that may change.
- Object groups for acl’s, routing policies, interfaces, queue, etc.
- Enhanced debugging/tracing that can show the whole packet path through all chains, queues and possible stops.
- Simplified interface for queue management in complex environments.
- Virtual hardware interface for direct attached AP's, BaseBox SXT LTE, etc in order to check and control important properties and subscribe to real time events like link status etc.
- Pluggable interfaces and protocols to preserve resources.
- Pluggable controller to enable Software Defined Networking.
- Fast and structured storage like sqlite for scripting purposes..
- The ability to develop and run third party pluggable add-ons running on a sandboxed environment (e.g. Linux Docker) for supplementary services like:
  • hotspot management
    accounting and billing
    two factor authentication
    OpenVPN AS
    performance tools
    enhanced management services
    storage providers
    move User-Manager and Netwatch here
- API using standardized interfaces and RCP techniques such as, or similar to:
  • JSON/REST
    CORBA RPC
    ONC RPC
    DCE RPC
- Encrypted key storage for storing passwords used in scripts, certificate private keys, etc.
- Security enhancements
  • Two factor authentication for management access and VPN tunnels.
    Password (or possible ACL) protected files and settings
    LDAP integration for management access.
    Real brute force protection
- Network Monitoring and Management
  • - Pluggable module for Network Management (NMS) with support for:
    OpenFlow/NetFlow (SDN)
    RMAN2
    CIM/WBEM (SBLIM)
    SNMPv3 with enhanced security
    Enhanced MIB-II trees
    SNAP traps for all manageable objects (both hw and sw)
- Various protocol enhancements: IKEv2, OpenVPN UDP + options like ZLE/EAS/TLS-AUTH etc, 2FA, DNSSEC, IPSEC/VT, NAT64.
- Multiple MAC’s and IP’s per ethernet/sfp interface.

Work out a new license model and divide the above into different level of capabilities that will also make it possible to run on less powerful devices.

Well, most definitely not before 2020 if they choose to develop everything from scratch. :lol:

It's actually possible to create a working prototype with most of the features from the wishlist on a small device like the Raspberry Pi in just a couple of days. And yes, you obviously need to configure everything manually the typical Linux way through shell scripts and edit tons of files. But it's quite doable and I've done it my self although the configuration process was definitely the major obstacle. You could probably even use a RB to implement your own prototype: HOWTO: Dual-booting RouterOS and OpenWRT on RouterBoard

Hopefully they'll implement RoS v7 on a new and flexible platform using frameworks such as XDP/eBPF/NFtables, pluggable kernel modules for example communication and management protocols, and using Linux Docker as sandbox environment for third party add-ons. And there are plenty of open source protocol stacks that can act as base for further work. An example of a company that make heavy use of open source is Brocade and you can even find the complete src for the old Vyatta Vrouter. If R&D at MikrotIk choose this way of working they can initially implement the basic functionality quite fast and work their way up in the food chain so to speak.

There's nothing new under the sun and everything is up for grabs but hopefully they'll make it happen! :D

The trouble with working prototypes is that while you can create one in couple of days, you then need couple of months to turn them into something you can share with others, and much more if you want to reliably tackle all corner cases. I imagine there are quite a few in something with RouterOS size. So while I hope to see some of your suggestions make it into v7, I think a lot of others can be just distant dream for v8 or so.

Yeah, the prototype is usually just a part of a POC they probably did ages ago. If they are smart, they'll release a version that will match the functionality in v6 and continues from there when things have stabilised. One thing is for sure, the folks at marketing will have to cope with all the people that have extremely high expectations of v7 and that believes it will solve all problems in the world! :-D

Anyhow, I would guess that much of the work is put on developing their own nftable bytecode compiler/decompiler "engine" that needs to be tightly integrated into the user interface. In general it's a quite big step to move from iptables to nftables but in the long run, the operation and management of the development projects will become greatly simplified in regards of correcting bugs and adding new features.

And they will of course need to integrate new protocol stacks that's not part of the standard kernel but I really hope they'll avoid develop new protocols themselves and instead put all effort in integrating open source or licensed software...

Btw, are there currently any big showstoppers in regards of bugs or missing features that would actually force people to pick other vendors even if they preferred MT?

All i want is for mikrotik routerOS for routerboards at least to have all the features that both consumer and prosumer routers have and many features that industrial routers have as well. By that i mean in consumer routers in the config you can use domains in some of the configuration which is resolved when used rather than stored as an IP. If you look at openwrt and what linux based consumer routers can really do if you get into the linux bit and start adding and changing config files, it really makes those routers flexible. Mikrotik routerOS is only flexible with what you see infront of you, being able to add rules but you cant do really complex things without having to deal with MT's script and scheduler which tends to get broken and fixed multiple times. Last month i updated to 6.37 and it broke the scheduler and the OpenDNS update script timed out. Updated to lastest firmware today for the TILE and while the scripts work now the scheduler still doesnt work. I use the commands you would use in the command lines to run multiple scripts from 1 schedule which worked till i updated to version 6.37.

Hi,
First: I love Mikrotiks, I have allready 60+ pieces brought out to a lot of Customers.
One litte thing that would be very handy for me is:
IPSec Policy with ADDRESSLIST
feature instead of 1 policy per subnet on same VPN-Peer, as I have 1 customer with around 150 subnets and this is a total overkill for searching throug policis.
The Mailfirewall there is a Sonicwall and this supports subnetgroups for VPN-Policies. So the similar thing would be addresslists in Mikrotik.

Thank you for youre great work!
Best

Please add some kind of "find router" feature. I often take over projects from other people and have to search for bunch of devices sometimes in many rooms even buildings. A simple "beep constantly" feature could save me a lot of time. You wouldn't believe where people put their routers and wifi access points. This way devices can be located without disrupting their operation. Beep constantly + maybe some kind of LED visual feedback would be nice to have.

This is already possible, there is a :beep console command and also leds can be turned on/off. Simple script will do the trick.

What about enhancing CAPSMAN:
- centralized upgrade for RouterBoot (button for "/system routerboard upgrade") would be nice.
- "Right click" into remote CAPs list and directly connect to one of the CAP device itself
- management of all routerboards, also without wifi

Usermanager:
Currently, maintaining users via web browser provides more information than can be obtained using the CLI directly on the router (e.g. Total time left/Till Time can be seen on browser, but not Winbox) this makes using the API to get this information impossible. Could this be added in the output of
/tool user-manager user print
or even
/tool user-manager user print detail
would be great. The CLI should have everything a GUI has (plus more?!)

While using Winbox, I always missed the ability to allow to mark and copy form the log panel to clip board, as well a Find box. It would be very useful.

Re: Feature requests

1. I believe that you need to add ability to associate an IP address with two different mac-addresses. This allows you to give the same network address to a device that connects at different times from different interfaces (for example, ethernet or Wi-Fi in laptops)
This feature is implemented in dnsmasq (for example, dhcp-host=38:B1:DB:38:B4:23,28:d2:44:d0:e0:3e,192.168.0.111)

2. I do not receive the network route specified in the profile of the l2tp client. This topic was previously discussed in your forum: viewtopic.php?t=56079
This feature is implemented in SoftEther

Thus, both possibilities requested by me are technically feasible.

I use wireless roaming feature and I have set Signal range in Access list to kick clients with low signals.

It works fine for most of the time but sometimes some clients got kicked frequently even with good signal.

After some time of monitoring this issue I concluded that problem is that it happens that client momentarily is received with low signal, and Mikrotik kicks it at once.

If I set lowest allowed signal to very low, client does not get kicked. But, that ruins whole idea of roaming as then clients stay connected to node even with very low signal.

My proposal is to introduce option to set hysteresis (delay) to kicking clients if signal is out of specified level range. Goal is to kick client if it really has low signal for some time not just because it is measured low for a moment.

Hello!

RouterOS "ip route print where dst-address in x.x.x.x/z" is fast. But for a reason the same for ipv6 is slow (when the number of routes is large).

Please, make ipv6 route lookups fast as well.

It would be nice if routing updates were more atomic. Currently converging BGP full view can lead to temporary routing loops. They last for a minute or two.

My setup consists of 3 CCR1036 routers facing different providers; iBGP between each pair of them. When a router boots up, a temporary loop can be created for a pair of minutes.

Also I'd like to repeat my plea of a graceful reboot option: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=45934&p=556840&hili ... ul#p556840

1. dstnat for output chain - i.e. to route Mikrotik's DNS requests to different DNS servers / interfaces
2. hardware ipsec acceleration for processors, which support it (i.e. RB3011) - maximum ipsec performance is the must for many modern configs, imho

Please add a button to clear the log. It's practically impossible to try and debug routers over crappy connections when just attempting to load the log causes the connection to break. If I could periodically clear the log it would reduce the traffic enough for the connection to remain viable.

I've tried the methods listed on the forum and they no longer work.

You might be using the same certificate on multiple CAPs. Take this as an educated guess, not a definitive answer.

In case that public key authentication is used (and passwords are disabled) the SSH server should drop the connection immediately if no public key is provided by the client (instead of asking for a password and denying access even if a valid password is provided). There should also be a configuration option to allow password authentication in addition to public key authentication.

I have thousands of failed login attempts (from different IPs), all trying to login as admin, user, test, etc. using passwords...

Re: Feature requests (DNS names input instead of IP address)

Fri Apr 21, 2017 9:29 pm

Hi,

Please add feature that will allow me to add DNS name instead of exact IP address. I need this to connect 2 or more MKT routers (PPTP connection) if they are connected to internet thru ADSL and theirs IP addresses are dynamic. I hope that you understand what I am saying and that we can expect this feature in new ROS.

bye,

;-)
i think that this should be global. anywhere you specify a dns name it should be resolved.
Yes, but not immediately - it should be stored as a DNS name and resolved in real time. For example, it's pointless to resolve /tool email server once and store it as a numeric address, which is why ROS will store it as a name. However, /system watchdog resolves the same server once and then stores it as a number, which is wrong. Also, you don't want things to fail because they can't be resolved immediately when you are configuring a router on a workbench and it has no connection to your network.

This would be good for both /int wireless access and /int wireless connection; also the "add to access list" and "add to connection list" operations, where you already know that the resulting entry will not be incompatible with the connection that already exists, because it is being generated from that connection.

Many of the newer, lower-cost devices have no beepers. :-( I have come to rely on the beepers for so much diagnosis (esp. SXT setup) and I really miss them. I would pay the extra buck.

I believe this request can be implemented very fast but it helps the ROS management with Multiple WAN a lot! :wink:
The "/ping" and "/system ssh" allow user to specify the "src-address" parameter so that the command can initiate the network connection on specific WAN easily.
BUT "/tool fetch" doesn't include "src-address" parameter.

The problem is one ISP blocks all incoming ping request, thus I cannot use ping as a remote monitoring facility, I need to find alternatives to archive this goal.
I write script to carry out the monitoring job, but as I know, "/system ssh" cannot be executed under script environment, which means I cannot use "/system ssh" to do this job.
The only way to choose is to use "/tool fetch" facility to monitor the remote ROS, BUT it lacks "src-address" parameter, to supplement this deficiency, before using the "/tool fetch", I need to specify a temporary custom route to fix the outgoing path for remote target.

The whole situation can be simplified tremendously by only adds the "src-address" parameter to "/tool fetch"

Please add the ability to do a where query in [] with any valid-variable.

fail example:
:local identity "testRouter"
:local interface [/ip neighbor find where identity=$identity]

fail reason:
result differs from :local interface [/ip neighbor find where identity="testRouter"]
contains several interface which don't have the specified identity.

pass example:
:local macAddress "00:11:22:33:44:55"
:local interface [/ip neighbor find where mac-address=$macAddress]

pass reason:
gives exact same result as :local interface [/ip neighbor find where mac-address="00:11:22:33:44:55"]
contains only interfaces that have that MAC address

The problem is one ISP blocks all incoming ping request, thus I cannot use ping as a remote monitoring facility, I need to find alternatives to archive this goal.
I write script to carry out the monitoring job, but as I know, "/system ssh" cannot be executed under script environment, which means I cannot use "/system ssh" to do this job.
The only way to choose is to use "/tool fetch" facility to monitor the remote ROS, BUT it lacks "src-address" parameter, to supplement this deficiency, before using the "/tool fetch", I need to specify a temporary custom route to fix the outgoing path for remote target.

The whole situation can be simplified tremendously by only adds the "src-address" parameter to "/tool fetch"
setup some VPN tunnel between the routers :)
then you may ping inside the VPN, or just use VPN Interface state to detect remote failure

that's because the variable name "identity" is the same as parameter name "identity". the following code works correctly:
:local id "testRouter"
:local interface [/ip neighbor find where identity=$id]
by the way, use the following is also correct:
:local interface [/ip neighbor find where $identity=$id]
:local interface [/ip neighbor find $identity=$id]
