2.9.16 Released

Thu Mar 09, 2006 10:17 pm

What's new in 2.9.16:

*) fixed ospf bugs that caused problems when multiple addresses were
assigned to the same interface;
*) added option for enabling TCP SYN cookies;

What's new in 2.9.15:

*) fixed mac address changing (improves vrrp)
*) fixed dns cache, it could stop working
*) added server-name and interface-name variables in hotspot servlet pages;
*) fixed bonding, works better with wds slaves
*) fixed wireless related kernel crashes when some combinations of
nstreme/framer-policy/encryption are used;
*) added support for VerizonWireless CDMA modem;
*) fixed major bug in routing protocol operation that was
introduced in 2.9.13;
*) decreased default queue size for Simple Queues (uses less memory);
*) fixed bug - system backup did not work on RB500;
*) disabling connection tracking could sometimes crash router;

I have just upgraded from 2.9.13 and MSN/Skype stopped working.

Update documentation pleeeease!

Please update the manual so that these new settings / possibilities can be understood!

And what is a "wds slave"? Does it have anything to do with wireless? I am using bonding in 2.9.11 and it seems to work quite well... is this workin better also for ordinary LAN nic's?

An implementation of VRRP that *works* would be welcome! It needs to be able to take over the MAC addresses as well.

Does 2.9.16 fix the 64mb NAND problem?

I have a few older ones that I've been waiting to upgrade.

Thanks,
Richard

After upgrade if use NAT must modify connection tracking TCP send/receive timeout to 00:01:00. The deafault in 2.9.16 not correct.

I don't have any Skype stuff to test with, but MSN appears to be working OK. I only tested text chat so far though.

Edit: just saw your reply... I'm not using any NAT, pure routing/PPPoE

Since I did what BLT suggested above, everything's working fine.

Strange thing is that once I upgraded to .16, the connection tracking change is done. I tried rolling back to .14, but the new connection tracking were kept, and I still could not connect.

It affected Skype, MSN, Soulseek and outbound SMTP.
HTTP, FTP and inbound SMTP were not affected.

it is located in:

/ip firewall connection tracking print

I think it is better to set it to 10s max, with 1m you could have too many defective cobbections in your connection tracking table
With great knowledge comes great responsibility, because of ability to recognize id... incompetent people much faster.

If problem still persist create another topic with the configuration description!
