What is the relationship between a hard port like ether1 on the front of the 1100RB and the ether name in the
show interfaces button in winbox.
Normally I plug a wire into etherX on the front of the box, and etherX shows it is running in the display.
Today I uploaded a slighly older backup from another box onto a box running 6.37.1
Suddenly hard port 1 was ether10 and everything was scrambled, as the IP assignments, that were on display ether10
showed up on hard port ether1
How can this even happen and can I correct it without have to hand configure the second box from scratch?
Thank you for your attention and efforts,
