I have been using OS 2.9 for the last 2years and have hardly no issue with it. Week ago i thought it would be nice to see what v3 has to offer. I have 3 mikrotik boxes on the network with +250 clients
1st : ppp server x86 (upgrade to v3)
2nd : traffic shaper , dns , proxy x86 (upgrade to v3)
3rd : gateway mini router (2.9.50)
I have heard allot about v3 proxy ,how much better it is than squid. v3 proxy gave me more problems than anything else. page time outs were the most common problem.
The 2nd issue i ran into was this :
10:22:16 pptp,ppp,info <pptp-xxxxx>: terminating... - could not add queue: already have such name
When have 250 clients trying to connect and all you see is this in the log file while taking calls and u have no idea why it is doing this ,it can be a bit frustrating. Mikrotik reckons it is a ppp module crash and have managed to fix it with the new 3.x. Thanks Mikrotik you could let us know that there are still MAJOR bug with version 3
3rd issue : both systems suddenly started to restart randomly.( not sure if that has anything to do with v3 , time will tell after the downgrade)
I have downgrade back to 2.9 now and everything is running smoothly again.
Has anyone used v3 in a larger scale network not just cpe's and if you have what kind of experiences have you had with it ?
Any success stories would be greatly appreciated.
