How do you host a server?
Re: How do you host a ( btest ) server ?
Answer - From North Idaho Tom Jones - admin for btest server 188.8.131.52
Hosting a btest server:
- 1st ; Mikrotik does not oficially endorse or host any btest servers that I know of. Back in 2016, I just made a btest server and posted it to the Mikrotik forums.
- 2nd ; All you need to do is the following:
-- a) configure a Mikrotik (I use a CHR) with a live IP address (so that remote Internet btest-ers can test to it ( TCP send & receive and also UDP send & receive )
-- b) disable any firewalls on the btest server (My btest server does not have any firewalls , I did this so that remote btesters and performs btests to/from it).
--c) on the new btest server you are creating , crease a " btest " user and a " btest " group.
My " btest " user is a member of the " btest " group
My " btest " group has only the following Policies checked " test & winbox & romon & tik.app "
--d) under IP Services , modify every IP Service to only have your IP addresses.
example: winbox Port 8282 should have one or multiple entires for your IP addresses
Note: Use IP Services to pervent others out on the Internet from telnet-ing and/or ssh-ing and/or winbox-ing (an entry for each service)
Then after your new btest server is up and running , simply post here in this forum your IP address and btest user name and password ( I would assume btest and btest ) along with information about where you are , who you are, and what speeds your server can handle for btesting , also include any policy you would like to state so that others can follow your desired btest server policies.
I will then add your btest server to the first posting of this Mikrotik btest forum topic.
If/when you have your btest server running, you are welcome to private message me so that I can take a look at it to make sure everyting looks OK.
If you would like some help , just PM me and I can winbox into your new btest server and configure it for you.
