v5rc6 released

Thu Dec 23, 2010 2:11 pm

v5rc6 (aka v5ip6) is released just in time for holidays.
What's new in 5.0rc6 (2010-Dec-23 13:33):

it should be specified under broadcast-addresses (X.X.X.255),
255.255.255.255 is not going to work;
*) ssh - fixed showing forwarding settings,
check your setting after upgrade!
*) allow to specify multiple networks (including IPv6)
in user's allowed-from list;
*) added support for Safe Mode to WinBox;
*) allow to specify non acceptable groups for RADIUS console logins;

*) added IPv6 support to API;
*) added IPv6 support to winbox;
*) added IPv6 support to ftpd;
*) added IPv6 support to netwatch;

As usual, torrent will work sooner, as mirrors are still being updated (wait for a few hours for the HTTP mirrors to be up to date).

Good news. Thanks Mikrotik.

DSCP setting for IPv6 IPinIP tunnels is very good. We should now be able to use policy routing with tunnels using DSCP as a matcher. I hope to see this for IPv4 as well.



For information :

IPv4 exhaustion counter has been advanced to 11 february 2011.

There is now only seven /8 blocks available at IANA. APNIC has aanounced a few days ago that they will deliver two /8 blocks quite fastly.

After those 2 /8 blocks, the 5 remaining blocks will be allocated to 5 RIR regions at the same time.

IPv4 end could be seen before the computed date.

Asia will eat their IPv4 ressources very fastly. And we'll need about one year before final RIRs exhaustion.

Good time to begin testing, clients and providers deployment.

Hopefully we have Mikrotik Router OS :=)

There seems to be a problem with v5rc6!

When i try and mac ping, winbox closes!
I confirm this bug too!
winbox crashes when macping something.
To reproduce it:
1. go on ip neighbors;
2. on the list of nighbors, go on the selected item right click on the mouse and choose ping or macping (it is the same)

then winbox will crash.

regards

Seems like Winbox 2.2.16 does not allow IPv6 addresses.

The 5.0 rc6 changelog say :

*) added IPv6 support to winbox;


Is there is new Winbox version available for IPv6 access ?

Still no support for linkloop 802.2 protocol.

linkloop 00:0C:42:xx:xx:xx
Link connectivity to LAN station: 00:0C:42:xx:xx:xx (HW addr 0x000C42xxxxxx)
** TIMEOUT (2 seconds)
-- NO RESPONSE --


Would be usefull for testing level 2 connectivity with switches.

Works even if ARP is disabled.

I can confirm about simple queues.
As i think it's because in all my simple queues appears 0.0.0.0/0 value in "Dst. Address" field, and i can't remove this, previous this field was unset.
Normally my simple queues works by packet marks and "Dst. Address" in not necessary.
After downgrade to v5.0rc5 queues works fine.

It's probably related to
*) added IPv6 support for /queue simple;
If it can now handle both IPv4 and IPv6 bugs may have been introduced. That said, 0.0.0.0/0 should be equivalent to an unset destination address since that matches all possible IPv4 addresses, and you're presumably not just having issues with IPv6 traffic.
Out of curiosity, does explicitly adding 0.0.0.0/0 as a destination address work on RC5? When you leave it in like that and then upgrade, does it work in RC6 (is there a difference between explicitly defining it and having it appear as a default value)?
Specific answers require specific questions. When in doubt, post the output of "/ip address print detail", "/ip route print detail", "/interface print detail", "/ip firewall export", and an accurate network diagram.

Its more than that. If I click on a SSTP active connection on a SSTP server, and then ping, it crashes there too....

For the queues, it looks like it always wants an address.. If you try to make it blank via CLI, it puts ipv6 ::/0 in automatically.

Anyone having anything "weird" happen with IPv6 RA/discovery?

I have an RB1100 with a RB433AH access point behind it. The 1100 bridge interface is enabled for discovery/managed config/other, the RB433 IPv6 address/interface is just mac discovery. But my laptop picks up the 433 as the default gateway, so i need a default route on the 433 for my laptop to get access across the 1100... on 5.0rc5, I didnt need a default gateway on the AP and it picked up RA messages from the 1100..

I dunno what is supposed to be right. Seems like the AP should be a bridge and the 1100 would be the default gateway for my laptop, not the 433...

EDIT: If I disable the IPV6 package on the 433, The 1100 comes through as the default gateway. Even if I remove any global IPV6 address from the access point and remove anything about discovery, it still gets advertised..

Im thinking there is a quirk with advertisement in 5.0rc6. The config worked in 5.0rc5..

I can confirm that the User Manager has not been fixed, the issue is the same like with version 5.0RC5.

- No Store can be activated for User Manager
- User Manager has no idea about any user or anything (as result of the above obviously)

Please fix with lightning speed.
Thank you.

I hope everyone is submitting rif files to support. Be a little fair as this is a RC still and has *ALOT* of v6 support added to things which is going to cause problems, Log support tickets and let them work on them. This RC has alot of things changed to alot of key bits (and old code)

You have to download from the router latest winbox loader v2.2.18
When I download Winbox, it still says version 2.2.16. Is there a different location to get 2.2.18?

w0lt, where did you get Winbox ?

if you downloaded it from the router web GUI, it should give you 2.2.18. If not then i think you don't have RC6 on the router.

It is in TODO list and should be ready until final v5 is released. You can easily start to deploy IPv6 even without DHCPv6, use stateless address autoconfiguration.

Just to add something positive to this thread, first time during v5 testing I don't have any wireless "sent deauth" issues with iPhones and iPads.
I don't know what you folks have changed in rc6 wireless code but seems it helped in overcoming that nasty issue. I hope it won't come back in future releases. :)

Hello,

I don't know if it's a bug or I need to configure something, but when I try to execute a script over ssh that is ~850 lines long in v5rc6, I get the message "Write failed: broken pipe". The script is with customer firewall and queue rules. The same script had no problem on v4.13 and if I shorten it to just a few customers (3 out of all 70) it works fine. (didn't try to see how many would work)
Any ideeas?

Thank you.

EDIT: I've downgraded from v5rc6 to v4.16 and now I get this error when ssh-ing into the system: " Protocol major versions differ: 2 vs. 1 "/ I also noticed that when the system first boots after the downgrade, it only generates an RSA key. After a clean v4.16 install, everything works fine.

It is in TODO list and should be ready until final v5 is released. You can easily start to deploy IPv6 even without DHCPv6, use stateless address autoconfiguration.
To MT:
First of all I would like to say thanks for your job.
You doing very useful job for community. However,
The question is – do you have any schedule for final release?
There were so many changes since 5beta1 (03.2009). When you are going to „freeze” any add-ons into RC?
I can agree that ipv6 is the feature.
But seriously, I don’t need any surprise regarding changes in simple Q or Access lists in case if I chose to upgrade my ”IPV4 only system „ to last RC.
From one side, you have asking community to test RC in real life system; from other side each release has add-on that could break some existing configuration. :evil:

I know that IPV6 has so many “stuff” that could be VERY useful for routers.
But I just want to believe that you are not going to add any IPv6 functionality into stable V.5 after it will be released.
Really, could you please just stop with changes, and provide to community stable release with
a)New kernel drivers
b)RPS support
c)N2 support
d)SSTP support
e)GRE support
Do you think these changes are not enough for new version?

What is purpose of release candidate if new features are introduced? This is usually called alpha or trunk branch. RC version should be branch created from trunk where only fixes are applied. And after some time if no more problems are discovered then it could be called as stable branch. So mikrotik should supply trunk, rc and stable versions. New stable version should be released for example in half year period.

In current status it seems to me that final release is far away from now. May be several months because real feature freeze stage not started yet. Even that some particular new features are tested and ready for use.

v4 is still premature ... it still has life left hopefully.

v5 started out beta, no one used it because beta is super beta in mikrotik-land... so they made it RC so at least some people would use it, which is why we are finally flushing the bugs out. just my guess : )

V5rc6 database clear failed

Sun Dec 26, 2010 8:22 am

x86 has been running 5.0beta4 for months without a problem.

Upgraded to v5rc6.

[admin@MikroTik] /tool user-manager> database clear
Dangerous! Reset whole user-manager database (except logs)? [y/N]:
y
Resetting user-manager database
Failed to reset user-manager database
error - contact MikroTik support and send a supout file (2)
[admin@MikroTik] /tool user-manager>

I can't believe something so simple or obvious could have been missed during developer testing, so I'm going to *first* assume the problem is at *my* end before I scream it's a bug. My original license was for 3.x, and I'm going to reinstall 3.x and do an upgrade to v5rc6 and see if I can duplicate the problem.

who can test if on 5.0rc6 works command like this:

/ip route print count-only where dst-address "0.0.0.0/0"

on 4.6 this command gives result in few seconds
on 5.0rc5 result is infinite processing without any reslut "helps only ^+C"

if this is a bug how to report ?

few of my scripts don't work like

:foreach subnt in=[ /ip route find comment="IX" ] do={
:local bogon;
:set bogon [/ip route get $subnt dst-address];
/ip firewall address-list add list=IX address=$bogon; };


I would appreciate any response.

Hello andrijco,

Your test results are greatly appreciated.

Does the same problem happen with version 5.0 RC6?

To report this, you could simply send an e-mail to support@mikrotik.com telling them the same thing.
Usually you should include a supout file from your router that has the problem to help identify exact conditions.

Thank you.

Hi andrijco.

Sorry, no access to real hardware yet -- in a few days I will have two RB/750G so will be able to do better testing. As software developer I understand importance of software testing, even more when working on release candidates. Using the online demo router running 5.0rc6 at mt.lv we have:
[demo@demo2.mt.lv] > /ip route print count-only where dst-address "0.0.0.0/0"
0

After update to v5rc6 my IPv6 Tunnel to Hurricane is not working anymore.
The clients don't get a ipv6 ip anymore and advertise is still on.
I did a downgrade to v5rc5 and the ipv6 tunnel is working again also the clients get the ipv6 ip number.

Normis, ROS is software that is provided by MT, so you should do, what you want (not me :) ).
And once again - thank for the ROS.

I'm not contradicting myself.
If you asking me, then I can tell, that NOW I need Stability for V5. Because I need features that V5 has.
I'm with v5 because of New Intel card support. SSTP, RPS, GRE Is also good for me.
If you remember we are waiting for long time until MT fix router reboot in case of Simple Q using.
SSH bug, memory leak in sstp, torch bug. And now we get IPV6 "surprise".
So, for now I can use RC3 - because its looks like most stable for me in current situation.
And Once again - is there any schedule for the final release?

Full release of v5 will be ready when it's ready.

It's still RC, so you should not expect 100% stability, that's what I meant. For stability use v4.16 which is very stable as far as I know (very small amount of problem reports to support).

IPv6 surprise? There's been dozens of threads about it, Those are features you need right now in your network. Right now we needs these IPv6 features and we dont need your features so MT has a hard time pleasing everyone but right now IPv6 is upon us and in order to stay relevant MT has to have full support for v6.

I think everyone here needs a stable ROS 5.0 final release but those features aren't show stoppers. You can workaround the 1gbit card support by using older cards for now, SSTP is still new and really does nothing new compared with L2TP and PPTP etc. We've had to deploy IPv6 with a number of workarounds and messy hacks to get a stable v6 deployment in place now with ROS 4 I can't believe that people are using RC's in production setups. ROS 5 RC's have only just become stable enough to be powered up on lab gear connected to our network.

There are few features in ROS 5 so far that cant be worked around in ROS 4 for the time being

on demo this is MIPS architechture

[demo@demo2.mt.lv] > ip route print count-only where distance=110
2
[demo@demo2.mt.lv] > ip route print count-only where distance=0
0
value of distance out of range (1..255)
[demo@demo2.mt.lv] >

and on demo it works but second answer is strange

maybe it's because my route list counts over 670000 items

sometimes architecture is the key, why bug is manifested on one router and not on the other. I have tried /ip ro pri where dst-address="0.0.0.0/0 (and comment="something") on x86 and it worked, same as for ppc, maybe really, route count is limiting factor here.

On the side topic of ip route print it would be nice if when you do "where dst-address=blah" you can enter a host IP and have it report back the subnet's that route falls into.

When your dealing with a full route table it's dam hard to find a route when you only know the host, In cisco land you can put the host in and it will spit out routes that host falls into. A number of times now we've had to wait 10min for the full table to load in Winbox to manually find the /24 or /19 route that a /16 netblock has

Thank you very much for the reports about queues at 5.0rc6.

We can confirm two problems with queues right now,

1) When there is no address specified (target-address/dst-address), only IPv6 traffic is queued.
To fix it use any IPv4 address (e.g. 0.0.0.0/0) for target-address/dst-address for /queue simple.
To fix dynamic PPP queues, use /queue tree and dynamic-address-list.

2) /queue simple does not work on x86/miplse at all.

Both problems already fixed and will be included to the next release.

CoA's something our dev's have asked me about in the past. It's bad form to have to break a PPPoE to cap/uncap someone and static simple queue's quickly become unmanageable at scale. Can it please be put on the wish list?

@normis
I agree with you, ROS v4 is the stable release right now while v5 is the experimental one. We cannot expect v5 being production-ready yet. Ok, perhaps a "release candidate" is not the place to implement new features, but as noted by Beccara full IPv6 support is not an option anymore. We are moving to IPv6, and we are moving fast. So we need full support for this protocol right now. In our software project, we lock the tree twice a year to stabilize the code for the may and november releases. At this point, no new features are accepted. But in the case of MikroTik, it would be sad not having IPv6 support until ROS v6 (it is even more important for people that, like me, had adquired two devices with a L4 license). So all these IPv6 related changes are welcome.

A few years ago I got an expensive ($900 USD) printer from a well-known manufacturer. This printer supports IPv6 for ping and embedded web server but not for FTP and telnet that remain IPv4-only services. It does not support SSH either. Since day zero, I sent a few requests to the manufacturer about full IPv6 support and adding an SSH service to this printer and got no answer at all. I am greatly surprised to see how MikroTik not only listens to customer requests and works hard to fix bugs in ROS but also implements features wanted by customers. Good work!

now i know why the queues work with pppoe and not working with user manager
because all pppoe users have ip address
and user manager have auto ip
thank u
i will wait rc 7

Re: v5rc6 released

Hello,

I don't know if it's a bug or I need to configure something, but when I try to execute a script over ssh that is ~850 lines long in v5rc6, I get the message "Write failed: broken pipe". The script is with customer firewall and queue rules. The same script had no problem on v4.13 and if I shorten it to just a few customers (3 out of all 70) it works fine. (didn't try to see how many would work)
Any ideeas?

Thank you.

EDIT: I've downgraded from v5rc6 to v4.16 and now I get this error when ssh-ing into the system: " Protocol major versions differ: 2 vs. 1 "/ I also noticed that when the system first boots after the downgrade, it only generates an RSA key. After a clean v4.16 install, everything works fine.
can you send your supout.rif file to support? we would like to see your script and how you run it, please give us more details.

I sent a message to support,including a "supout.rif" file. The script I used is just plain "/queue tree add" (and remove), "/queue type add" (and remove), "/ip firewall mangle" rules for customers. The routers are all x86. The 2 I tested the scripts are on Virtualbox 4 with demo licenses, but I don't think that's the problem.
And as I said, it works without problems on v4. The same kind of script, 308 lines long (for another router) works on v4 and v5. (the first was 803 lines).

PS: I'll also send the two scripts to support if it makes a difference.

EDIT: ticket is Ticket#2010122666000091

I've just upgraded from v5beta6 to rc6 and my 532 board not boot:
RouterBOOT booter 2.18

RouterBoard 532

CPU frequency: 399 MHz
Memory size: 32 MB

Press any key within 2 seconds to enter setup..
loading kernel from nand... OK
setting up elf image... OK
jumping to kernel code
Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel. See Linux Documentation/init.txt for guidance.

What to do?

regards,
how did you upgrade, big package to FTP and reboot? which packages did you upload?

We have no such problems with RB532. You will have to use Netinstall to restore RouterOS.

SSTP is still new and really does nothing new compared with L2TP and PPTP etc.

Wow. You might wanna watch what you say when comparing L2TP/PPTP to an actual secure VPN solution..

We have reproduced the problem with SSTP. We are looking for the fix.

I've downgraded from v5rc6 to v4.16 and now I get this error when ssh-ing into the system: " Protocol major versions differ: 2 vs. 1 "/ I also noticed that when the system first boots after the downgrade, it only generates an RSA key. After a clean v4.16 install, everything works fine.
ROS 4.16 supports both protocol 1 and protocol 2. Its ssh daemon is based on an ancient OpenSSH release (2.3.0); ROS 5.0rc6 supports protocol 2 only so it seems based on, at least, OpenSSH 5.4. In fact, we decided disabling legacy protocol 1 by default on march's release after a transition period of ten years. Support for protocol 1 has not been removed from OpenSSH's source code, only disabled by default in the configuration files.

Protocol 1 supports RSA keys only, protocol 2 added support for DSA keys.

Edit: see http://www.openssh.org/txt/release-5.4

I don't know if it's a bug or I need to configure something, but when I try to execute a script over ssh that is ~850 lines long in v5rc6, I get the message "Write failed: broken pipe". The script is with customer firewall and queue rules. The same script had no problem on v4.13 and if I shorten it to just a few customers (3 out of all 70) it works fine. (didn't try to see how many would work)
Any ideeas?
"Write failed: Broken pipe" means that packet_write_poll() cannot write some of the output on a socket because there is no process to read the data on the other side. I would suggest (1) trying another sftp client, and (2) to make sure this is not a ROS-specific problem transferring a file to a BSD or Linux system running OpenSSH 5.4 up to 5.6 (as you noted, this problem does not happen with SSH service on 4.13).

Edit: obviously (2) should be done using the sftp client that is unable to transfer the file to 5.0rc6.

I'm using OpenSSH v5.6p1 on Gentoo (latest available) and just running commands over ssh to an x86 RouterOS box (about 800 at once...).
I think it's the v5 ssh implementation (as there are no problems in v4) and it will be fixed in rc7 according to this (very prompt :) ) answer:
Hello,

OK, we will increase the maximum length.

Regards,
Normunds

My post was about work arounds, SSTP offers nothing other than being simple, if you need secure stable VPN right now work around it, 5.0 is not for production deployment!

Cant. OpenVPN is for crap (The MT config anyways) in larger VPNs.

FWIW, 5.0rc5 has been serving me pretty well w/ 150+ SSTP connections. I just cant run SSTP on my RB1000 or the memory leak problem is too great. Have to use 2x RB450gs behind the RB1000 to slow the memory leak enough to keep em running. Client-side, 5.0rc5 (For my needs at least) is flawless except for the ssh hangup.

I think MTs biggest problem is lack of focus. They dont focus on one thing, finish it, and move on to the next. They finish something 90%, then start new projects and end up with 12 things at 92% completion all the while, people are trying to use said features.

Save your efforts. The User Manager RC5 and RC6 is not working at all. Don't you read the posts here?
I just noticed a post about that a little before mine, so it's likely I was in the middle of my post and started on something when that got posted.
