userman shows an in-active account with unlimited time. Paypal completes the transaction sends a receipt to the customer and notifies me of the transaction as normal.

What RouterOS version are you using?
could you send the support output file to support@mikrotik.com?
Also what is the status of the paypemt in the 'tool userm-manager payments' menu?
And do you have https enabled (certificate enabled on the router)?

The version is 2.9.41
https is enabled with a generic cert.

output is:

subscriber=admin user=(unknown) key="d6gejduvqugkmabhtp249fhe8htns79p"
credit=1hour credit-time=1h price=300 trans-start=mar/21/2007 01:18:15
trans-end=waiting trans-status=5 result-code=0 result-msg="Timed Out"
method=paypa

I followed the wiki manual for setting this up. Including putting in the public IP.
The money gets taken from the customer and they get a paypal receipt. I also get notified by paypal that I have received the payment.

Will do but just so you know all payment attempts show the following status:

trans-start=may/04/2007 12:05:20 trans-end=waiting trans-status=5
result-code=0 result-msg="Timed Out" method=paypal

Also, HTTPS is enabled with a certificate, the router has a public IP address and currency is set to GBP.

For trial purposes we have been accessing the Userman web interface directly and not via any hotspots. This means we shouldn't need any walled garden setting to test (but will when we go live). The fact that get all the way through the process and both company and client receive a confirmation email from paypal suggests this is fine. It just seems to be the Userman doesn't receive any response from Paypal to activate the account even though it has a public ip address that it routes all traffic via.

Howdy,

I am seeing this exact same behaviour.

I have a public IP on usermanager router (v2.9.42), a (paid for) SSL certificate installed.

The procedure is:-
Customer connect directly to usermanager signup page, create account, click paypal. Customer gets redirected to paypal payment site, all details are correct. Customer makes payment, money gets transfered from customer to ISP account, customer gets receipt email. Customer clicks "return to merchant" link and then sees 404 error.

I log in to userman with owner account. I can see the new customer account with unlimited time but no credit. I check ISP payapl account and the funds have been transfered.

My currency is in AUD, but I get the same behaviour using USD.

Cheers...ƒil

http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/User_Mana ... nts#PayPal
If I enter the following from the wiki into my walled garden:

/ ip hotspot walled-garden add dst-host=:^www\\.paypal\\.com\$ dst-port=443 action=allow
/ ip hotspot walled-garden add dst-host=:^content\\.paypalobjects\\.com\$ dst-port=443 action=allow

It doesn't work - my PayPal buttons don't appear and the PayPal style sheets do not load, so it looks like a spoof PayPal site!

Those rules didn't work for me either, giving the results you describe.

The ones that i found to work well are:-
add dst-host=*.paypal.com action=allow comment="" disabled=no 
add dst-host=*.paypal.com.au action=allow comment="" disabled=no 
add dst-host=*.paypalobjects.com action=allow comment="" disabled=no 
add dst-host=*.akamaiedge.net action=allow comment="" disabled=no
you may not need paypal.com.au

Yes, that's more or less what I've been doing for that past 18 months but from time to time PayPal seem to change IPs and it breaks, so I have lots of addresses in my IP list gathered from reverse DNS lookups.

I'd really like a simple walled garden hostname that just worked!

Hi,

I'm havig a similar problem to the described here.

All the payment process goes through and the payment appears as completed on our merchant account at Paypal. Just after the payment I can see connections from notify.paypal.com to our usermanager IP. But on /too user-manager payment menu the transaction never ends. "trans-end" field is waiting and after some time "result-msg" is Timed Out".

It has been reported to support. And they kindly accessed my usermanager to check every thing was right. According to them settings has been checked on their system and they work. And I assume the problem is related with the way Paypal reports completed payment. I tryed with certificates generated with apache on Linux and with a Paypal certificate with the same result.

I find very dificult to find the reason the notifications form Paypal are not recognized as there is no log anywhere. Or at least I don't know where to get logs from payment transactions.

Anyone had this problem before?

Re: Paypal still broke

G'Day...

A few suggestions worth checking:-


Install the paypal public certificate (not sure if this is required...following Boo's advice) you find it in http://www.Paypal.com->login->profile->encrypted payment settings.

Install the verisign certificate supplied by mikrotik support (Sergejs).

A self signed certificate would not work for me. I bought a SSL certificate from http://www.litessl.com . I used the \certificate\create-certificate-request command (from terminal) and uploaded the request file to litessl. They generated a certificate within 5 minutes and i was able to download it to my usermanager, install and decrypt.

Be sure that your SSL certificate is valid for the public DNS name of your usermanager, and that your "public host" setting in usermanager->customers is also the correct public DNS name.

Make sure that HTTPS is working on your usermanager router. I check this by enabling resource graphing then visit https://(your_userman_dns_name)/graphs .


Cheers...ƒil

Thanks Phil,

I already installed and tryed with Paypal certificate following Boo's advice. But it was not successfull. I tryed different "public hotst" the certificate was issued to paypal_api1.ourdomain and I used that wothout success.

The case was reported to Mikrotik Support and Sergejs has taken the case. He didn't sugest litessl certificate. I'll install it if he sugest to do so.

Is Paypal working for you,Phil?

Thanks for the advice.

Hi Vince,

Paypal is working fine for us. It's awesome not having to manually signup users and collect cash!

Installing the litessl paid-for certificate made it work for me. Our self signed certificate would cause internet explorer to prompt "problem with the certificate" error which i assume was causing paypal not to trust my usermanager.

The paid for certificate also gives my customers extra peace of mind when signing up or topping up their account as they are not confronted with a "problem with certificate" error either.

Cheers...ƒil

I tryed with the 30 day evaluation certificate litessl provides and it doesn't install correctly.

I guess apache ssl is the right certificate for Mirkotik web server. Downloaded the files provided by litessl and imported on the usermanager router. But they don't decrypt or appear as a valid certificate.

Keep on trying .... :?

It is working now. Also with self signed certificates generated as the wiki explains.

I don't know the reason but it was only failing for me. For any reason, Paypal accepted my payments from diferent computers, diferent payment methods (creditcard, paypal account), diferent e-mail contacts but the login was never enabled.

After sometime trying to find the problem I asked a pair of coworkers to try the signup process. And they were succesfull. I can't understand. But it is working for everyone except for me :-)

Regards.

You may use 'apache2-ssl-certificate' tool at Linux to create it,
get Linux box and install appropriate packages to get this command.

Re: Paypal still broke

I am having the same problem.

Usermanager is on a public IP (v2.9.43), with a trial SSL certificate Comodo installed.

Everything works fine till the end:
1) Customer connects directly to usermanager signup page.
2) Customer creates account and selects PayPal.
3) Customer gets redirected to paypal payment site, all details are correct.
4) Customer makes payment and money gets transfered OK from customer to us.
5) Customer gets a receipt email.

6) Customer clicks "return to merchant" link and then gets a 404 error.

If we log in to userman we see a new customer account createdwith unlimited time but no credit showing.

I have read everything above on certificates, walled garden (and had no difficulty putting in the paypal rules on the wiki) currencies, external IP's etc and all looks fine with these.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

In reading all your posts clearly several of you had the same problem, and many managed to fix it.

Has anyone at MT found a common factor which is present in all the problems?

Thanks,
Martin

I don't think you have any problem with the walled garden rules as your users can fill in the signup form and paymet form in paypal.

But you have a can see a difference with my case. I didn't get the "404 Not found" error when returning to the merchant. I saw it when doing test with certificates and used the wrong certificate.

My case was (and still is) very strange because when I did the payment myself either with credit card (3 different cards) or with another paypal account, the credit wasn't added to the customer. But then two of my cologues tryed the payment and it was successful. And also we had some real customers created correctly.

But it seems to fail again for anyone. The certificate is still valid. So that shouldn't be the reason. I upgraded to 2.9.44 that should come with some improvements on the usermanager. May be that is the cause.

At the moment the workaround is: Copy user name, password and credit and manually remove and create it with the credit payed.

Regards.

I made another test and now I see the 404 error message when returning to the merchant. But the user was successfuly created.

It's like sometimes the notification from paypal and usermanager fails. Some logs including the status of the payment notification will be usefull to have some clues. I think it is not posible to have those logs on the usermanager system, am I right?

hambake, has someoneelse tryed your usermanager using other payment credentials? I have no doubt on our economy ;-) It is because on my case the system is working for some people and it is failing for some other people. And I am not able to see any clear relation between them.

Sergejs, we bill in Euros (EUR) and clients pay in Euros although their cards may be UK£ or US$ etc., cards as most are tourists.

Make sure that your client is not paying in UK or USD, if he/she is payind in different currency that is not supported by your Paypal account. You have to enable additional UK/USD account at Paypal.

The payments are going through just fine. The problem is that clients get a page error when returning to our site from PayPal and the client's account is not being updated with the payment etc.

A suggestion...

You need to establish that your router is accepting https connections. The easiest way to do this is to enable resource graphing then visit https://(your_userman_dns_name)/graphs .
If you see the graphs then the router is accepting the https connection...if you get an error, then you have a problem with your certificate or ssl configuration on the router and not with usermanager.

Cheers...ƒil

We have one issue with Paypal that is related to specific characters used for Paypal account (e.g. š or any specific symbol), you may try to change these symbols to regular one. If this change will help you, you should wait for the next version (where this issue will be fixed) or contact support department, if you need these special characters.

If you will have any other issues with Paypal, we will appreciate if you will help us, more iformation,

I'm not sure if this is what's happening to you or not, but paypal does not allow payments to yourself which may explain why it works for your co-workers but not you.

I create the request but when I try to import nothing happens. The certificate-request.pem and the private-key.pem file can be seen in the file system, but will not be imported or decrypted, no matter what method is tried.
I can only delete them and recreate them.

You have to create certficates or buy them from the organization (signed certificate), if it is fine with unsigned you may use 'apache2-ssl' or 'openssl' tool to create certificate.

Does anybody have an answer to this yet? I get the same thing except I don't get the 404 error. It goes back to the login page but it won't work and the users prepaid time shows unlimited instead of what they paid for.

Right now I have it working on 3.6, but it may apply to other versions as well.
So, I followed all documentation and read all the forums to no avail. At first I kept getting "Status: Error
Status description: PayPal response error: cannot resolve dns"
I was very thorough in matching up all my DNS entries, so this did not make sense.
So, I got a demo signed cert from litessl.com to ensure it wasn't a problem with my self-signed cert.
This did not help.
Next, I added my demo cert file to my paypal encrypted payment settings page (under profile after you login).
PROGRESS!
I now get an error that says "Status: Error
Status description: Credit price differs from amount paid"
Hmm, maybe if I turn off my state tax so that my charged price matches my stated price it'll work?
Viola!
It does. It finally works! Whoo hoo!
Okay, so first question is why did it take so much poking around to make this work. MT? How hard was that? It'd be great to see this tested and added to the documentation. It'd also be great to get some logs or debugging available to users so we can figure out what's breaking without having to guess at the guts of the blackbox.
Overview of steps:
1) enable SSL on box
2) install and enable usermanager and create users
3) setup account at paypal and reference appropriately in usermanager setup
4) upload SSL cert to paypal under profile/Encrypted Payment Settings
5) Ensure DNS all matches, especially with your cert's hostname
6) disable any taxes being charged, or do taxes inclusively in your pricing

So, feature requests from this:
1) allow tax to be charged at Paypal (so, payment amount differs from charged price is okay)
2) Logs, please
3) ability to customize usermanager and user pages (at the very minimum, let us replace the mikrotik logo so we don't look so low-budget)
Thanks, good luck to all!

Hi

I have the same problem like you guys. Users get created payments ok everything ok but you can not log in with that user name that what created by paypal. I did all the thing what wiki says. you can see yourself that https works, it just doesn get data from paypal to activate the user with the credit asigned.

All the wallgardian addresses are added. If buys certificate from 3rd party will solve the problem i will buy one godaddy.com has 2 option one for 33 USD or for 103 approx. Which one should i use?




Can you help.

Hi

I erased all the certificates and started again.

I fallowed the steps from wiki:

Importing certificate
Certificate file can be then uploaded to the router and imported with command

/certificate import file-name=...
The command should return

certificates-imported: 1
private-keys-imported: 1
files-imported: 1
decryption-failures: 0
keys-with-no-certificate: 0
If it doesn't, could happen that the file contains private key and certificate sections in incorrect order. In this situation the output should be

certificates-imported: 1
private-keys-imported: 0
files-imported: 1
decryption-failures: 0
keys-with-no-certificate: 1
Just repeat the same command

/certificate import file-name=...
once again and the output should be this time

certificates-imported: 0
private-keys-imported: 1
files-imported: 1
decryption-failures: 0
keys-with-no-certificate: 0
Now certificate is imported correctly and ready for use;

Enabling WWW SSL
SSL connections for WWW server can be enabled with command

/ip service set www-ssl disabled=no certificate=cert1
where cert1 must be replaced by a correct c


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Everything went ok, like you guys are saying. With 2048 bit encryption ( godaddy needs that)

I copied and pasted the server.crt file to godaddy.com with other server to compile and once it was ready i downloaded from them. Then i pasted those tow files the gd_bundal and skynetisp.com.crt to Mikrotik 750G router with 4.10ver and inported the cert file and gd_bundal and as last the server.key. Everything went ok i got the :

certificates-imported: 0
private-keys-imported: 1
files-imported: 1
decryption-failures: 0
keys-with-no-certificate: 0

but when i try to check if my https url works NOP. ex. https://skynetisp.com/graphs don't work, gives me err that the connection is not verified and not signed. And
signing up new users is still the same problem like i discribe above nothing changed with that at all.

see screen shoots.

P.S i also tried with the xxxxx.pem files generated on User manager /mikrotik web server. The same results. Certificated was not verified 2 out of 3 checked marks when error about the ssl connections in user browser pop up, were displayed.

Thanks guys.

Any ideal what i am missing here?

Looks like it is on final stage to acctivate the new create accout and that is where it stacks, on MT router to acctivate the user accout. User manager doen't get the message some how even thou PayPal send it to it.


the certificate has to work on LAN and on WAN. with FQDN of the Certificat ( CN ) but i can not get to the skynetisp. not being log in first.

Question.
How can anyone sign up with https for https://skynetisp.com when they are not log in first?
What DNS should i use and walled garden for LAN and WAN when signing up new user.

Thanks




What can be causing it?

Thanks Mikto TIk Staff.

P.S

Some folks may find this hande:
1) I was making mistake when copy file to godaddy it has to be xxxxxxxx.CSR to rekey for new certificate and pick "other" option for www server when generating the new certificate.
2) Make sure your pc that you test/work while doing the certificate has TIME set between the range other ways the cert will get err . Change time 1 day ahead. I did and no err.

1) Required walled-garden entries (I recommend to read the entire link),
http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/User_Mana ... nts#PayPal

2) User should go to signup page from the HotSpot login page (you can make a link),

Hi

I have check the walled garden urls and i copied and pasted them form mikrotik wiki, so should be ok right? with wan IP in there as well.?

After successful payment and clicking the "return to merchant" i get redirected to usermanager user page this is the url:

https://skynetisp.com/user?tx=1B024975W ... rset=UTF-8


I also added my certificate to paypal as one of you suggested before testing it. Still the same problem.

MIKROTIK DOESN'T"T READ/ACCEPT THE DATA FROM PAY-PAL WHY?

dns is : skynetisp.com like in my certificate.( CN = common name )

Should Mikrotik work even without adding the same certificate like i have on MT 750g box to my paypal accout ? Or it has to be done?

I open port 443 on fire wall. So i know it is not ssl issue.

Either way doesn't work.

I think it would be faster if you will contact MikroTik support with attached support from User Manager router (support@mikrotik.com).
