smoothwal+ mikrotik problem help

Sat Jan 12, 2008 7:10 pm

I am WISP not so profecional in IT but I decided to use smoothwall as a wb proxy for cache and firewall an MT for hotspot and user mangement.. I geus many would say why though MT has a webproxy and firewall .... after I tried it I saw MT cache is not so effecient so I decided to use the following sugession
INTERNET GATWAY -------> SMOOTHWALL-------->MT------Wireless
the problem is that the system worked perfect but after a while say 2 hours the smoothwall dhcp stop responding and return after restart ... I thought that the problem is in the smoothwall but I tried smoothwall alone without a problem..
so what would you suggest,why the dhcp stops with MT..
and I don't know why there is a problem with a static IP assignment to the MT with smoothwall
anyway before that I tried a firewall box with cache called ETRI based upon KUBUNTU LINX and squid.. and the same problem happend with dhcp...
best regard

It's strange that just the DHCP "just" stops working. Try to resetup it and check the Ip Pools.
Anyway...The best solution would be a CentOS Server with squid and cacti (for statistics)...and you'll have a reliable caching and monitoring.

I told you that I am not so profetional but any way I tried KUBUNTU with squid3 and webmin it was welly amazing evry thing was good except transperent proxy I tried many Iptable setting for transperent and also tproxy with no result evry thing worked except transperent proxy... when I used smoothwall transpernt proxy worked and cache also but it stops after a while and dhcp stop responding... knowning that smoothwall has built in squid 2.6... I would be so gratefull if U tell me the best choice and configueration for either squid box and MT... I will try CentOS if you have config please do help me ...
