Still see an issue with the graphing.
I've created a queue graping rule for my internal network to see.
Nevertheless I can see the entry from anywhere.
Testing setup with: 2 x RB750UP | 2 x RB750GL | 1 x RB951G-2HnD | 1 x RB2011UiAS-IN

We will check, meanwhile please make a firewall rule to deny access to port 80 from other networks.

When sending traffic over wireless links in some rare cases the N data rate could drop to the lowest value and would not recover so fast. This version has a fix for those rare cases.

Any IPSec fixes? Particularly for "Unknown" for key names?

*) ovpn - allow to specify server via dns name;
ROS 6.4 - RB951G-2HnD - oVPN Server - after upgrade
ROS 6.3 - RB951G-2HnD - oVPN Client - lost connection to ROS 6.4 oVPN Server.

Downgrade Server back to 6.3 and same effect.
Downgrade Server back to 6.2 and it works.

ros code

/ip service disable www-ssl
And it's working.

Thanks for the explanation.
Have you plans for the next version some NV2 improvements?

Here is something strange. All options are disabled on quickset page. Only after closing it and reopening it the fields become enabled. I've seen this since 6.3 on laptop and workstation. Has anyone else noticed it?

Bug in v6.4 ... Using Netinstall or Upgrade package.

When using WinBox only and navigating to several random settings ( IP / DNS, IP / SMB, etc.) the options for these pages (to enable or disable) are grayed out. However, closing the page and going back and forth to it makes it accessible again. Not present in v6.3. WinBox is most likely to blame.

There are strange errors:
- Do not update via NTP Client (2011UAS-2HnD)
- Do not appear possible to edit anything, all obscured. For the second time of calling this function is activated. (2011UAS-2HnD + 450G)

In OS v6.2, v6.3, v6.4 not communicating UPS, connected to serial port. Previous versions of OS everything worked. See the following thread: http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=76652

Newly Identified note (If you restart the system, just before the shutdown occurs shortly to implement the communication with the UPS)

I can confirm this.

EDIT: I just closed it and opened NTP client settings again and i can edit. Seems a random bug.
EDIT2: OK, this always happens the first time you start winbox and click on ntp clisnt settings. This also happens on e.g. /ip clock and I assume somewhere else too, but I didn't check yet.

After I upgraded my Access Concentrators I saw a problem with high CPU usage, but only with the PowerPC ones.
The DHCP process was occupying all available CPU. After I disabled the DHCP package, the CPU usage returned to normal.
The problem is I use the DHCP process for the IPv6 PD.

seems that every text entry box or drop down list is disabled by the very first opening. second time and later - works as usual. (RB750, MT6.4) but is it WinBox problem or OS itself? I guess that supout is meant for OS only without exposing any of winbox bugs (also, web config works just fine)

Hello Folks!

We tried on 6 routers mixture of, rb433, rb333, rb2011uas-2hnd, rb750g

All working fine no real production disturbances, exept things in logs and display:

rb2011uas-2hnd shows running on 245.5V ?!

And in out l2tp router (rb333), very many:
sep/13/2013 21:23:19 ipsec,warning,critical Policy install failed: proposal disabled: ipsec proposal default
sep/13/2013 21:23:56 ipsec,warning,critical Policy install failed: proposal disabled: ipsec proposal default

I did not dare to update our production IPSEC routers, neither the Wireless infrastructure yet.

"Allow to specify server via dns name"

Please add this functionality to IPSEC and also to NTP CLIENT.

Thank you!

DNS bug!

DNS menu in winbox is obscured too.

Workaround:
reset dns-servers thru terminal ( /ip dns set servers=8.8.8.8 ) and reopen dns menu (ip - dns)

May be it will be worked in SMTP-client menu too ?

Hi greek, most of the previous comments in this thread mention the same issue. All winbox windows are affected by this bug. I hope it will be fixed soon because it is inconvenient to reopen the windows all the time.

Yup, and so far not a single word about this from Mikrotik!

Imagine if you were a new user today, never used Mikrotik before, and you bought a routerboard, and you did the suggested upgrade to the newest "stable" version 6.4 and then tried to use the router. You would lose all faith in them, as your very first impression of them is that the "stable" version doesn't even work.

+1. I am a relatively new MikroTik user, and after several updates breaking things I am now weary of new upgrades. What also concerns me is how many of the bugs seem to be regressions... I have been a software engineer for a long time. It seems that there is no automated testing (including regression testing) on the platform.

At least as far as I am concerned I am on 6.1, because that seems to work for me. But I am now reading the "6.x released" threads for at least a week or two before I decide to upgrade to see if it is going to break things. I am getting tired of doing restores for releases breaking things I use.

The problem is that they don't do public beta testing. You can request access to development versions... but that doesn't work well. With 6.4, they didn't allow time for any testing... it was out almost immediately as the "stable" release and they didn't post ANY changelog to 6.4 in the development portal before it went public. And, to make it worse, they prohibit discussing the beta versions in the forum... so all of the people testing the beta versions cannot even talk to each other about it!

It would be great if they always had a public stable version, and a public beta version. A LOT more people would test the beta version... and it wouldn't be such a big deal if there were problems like this because you could talk about them on the forum. Then, after a certain amount of time and stability, make this the new stable version and start a new beta version.

Nope, not at all. You can only send bug reports to support@mikrotik.com. There is absolutely no user-to-user contact for beta versions.

No, that forum was originally created for the PUBLIC beta of v6 before 6.0 was released. Now, it seems to be randomly used for feature requests and general support.

Look in it, you NEVER see people talking about the next version (like 6.5 now).

People get PM warnings if they talk about beta versions, even in that forum.

Keep in mind that when you label a version "beta", you get less people using THAT version compared to a version labeled "stable", which in turn means far less chance of bugs being caught in that period.
It seems that there is no automated testing (including regression testing) on the platform.
And THAT seems to be the root of the problem here.

I'd assume that the MikroTik devs have some tests for the basic functions and compliance for the different protocols... but that's not the same as UI testing and "integration testing" (read: unit testing higher level modules that use the lower level modules), which are the kinds of issues most frequently observed between "stable" versions.

Yes, but if it is publically available AND had a forum for discussion, that would increase it a LOT! The way it is now, everyone has to individually report errors, and they can't see what other people have reported, and it gets old reporting every tiny bug because you know that other people have obviously seen them... but no way to confirm that.

Also, people keep reporting the same "stable" bugs over and over because they have no way of knowing that some of those issues are already fixed in the next beta version... because there is often no changelog at all for beta versions and no where to discuss them. If there was a place to discuss beta versions, you could see that "xx" issue is either fixed (and that "xx" bug tested specifically be users) or not yet fixed in the upcoming release.

Like this current Winbox bug in v6.4 for instance, it MIGHT actually already be fixed in the 6.5 beta... but if I tested 6.5 beta for that bug, I would not be allowed to tell you here on the forum if it is fixed or not! So, EVERYONE that has development access would have to test it themselves instead of being able to see that a few people have already confirmed it one way or another, if they wanted to know if it is fixed.... instead of spending time looking for other bugs, all beta testers are spending time testing this one obvious bug.

True, true... all of it...

But I guess I can also sympathize with MikroTik devs here - it's hard to keep everyone up to date on development changes, without either having direct access to a VCS (and by extension - the source code, which for obvious reasons MikroTik would never do), or spending time on "bureaucracy"* like updating a change log on every commit, and tracking down all issue IDs where this was reported, updating the status, and notifying the submitters.... and don't get me started on what happens when you later need to revert the change because (through the limited testing that you DO perform) you find out it breaks something else in a bigger way.

Bigger companies (e.g. Microsoft) can only pull this off with an army of testers who test everything internally, so that users don't need to be kept updated between unofficial releases. With MikroTik - forum users are the unpaid army of testers.

* Note: This would be so with or without a public issue tracker... though with a public issue tracker, at least, as you say, we get the ability to see whether this was reported already, and maybe just cast a "me too" vote or whatever.

True, true... all of it...

But I guess I can also sympathize with MikroTik devs here - it's hard to keep everyone up to date on development changes, without either having direct access to a VCS (and by extension - the source code, which for obvious reasons MikroTik would never do), or spending time on "bureaucracy"* like updating a change log on every commit, and tracking down all issue IDs where this was reported, updating the status, and notifying the submitters.... and don't get me started on what happens when you later need to revert the change because (through the limited testing that you DO perform) you find out it breaks something else in a bigger way.

Bigger companies (e.g. Microsoft) can only pull this off with an army of testers who test everything internally, so that users don't need to be kept updated between unofficial releases. With MikroTik - forum users are the unpaid army of testers.

* Note: This would be so with or without a public issue tracker... though with a public issue tracker, at least, as you say, we get the ability to see whether this was reported already, and maybe just cast a "me too" vote or whatever.

A beta forum would fix this. I and a couple other people could test it and say, "xx problem fixed". Then, we would know. Then we could look for other bugs or fixes as a community instead of individually. As it is now, you are completely on your own... and Mikrotik probably gets 100 emails saying "xx still broken"... talk about having to spend time on "bureaucracy" !

To be clear, the developers themselves are not the problem, it is the system they're using and a part of. MikroTik is on the brink of another growth period and what does not kill them will make them better. If I was the CTO I would begin to implement some type of change control and automation.

It must still be the wild west around there for this type of a bug to make it out. I understand this and love the products, but what are new people still making comparisons thinking? That's when the increasing popularity can prove harmful.

Hi.
I never noticed it before, so I am not sure if this is related only to 6.4. But when I am running Winbox on any computer (in this case 192.168.88.10) there is still significant packet traffic in LAN - it looks like the winbox is still broadcasting on the winbox port (20561) even if it is already connected. This behaviour is not visible when Webfig is used and became visible when winbox is connected to Mikrotik router.

What do you think - is it common?

my RB951-2n, ROS 6.4, cpu load randomly jump to 100% then crashed (when manage via winbox) and router rebooted it self.

open profile, i saw console and management consume cpu load highly. is it normal? why console apeared in profile? :?

For production gear, just don't upgrade.

I had a CCR and stayed on 6.0 RC13 until 6.3 had been released for awhile. It's stable for me, so I will now stay here until there are significant performance improvements that will make it worthwhile upgrading.

Hi, all PPP options are also greyed out/obscured once the connection starts...

I'm still able to edit/change the settings via terminal, webfig or right click...

All this started with upgrade to v6.4. I'll provide a suppout if required.

Currently I am overly fed up with Mikrotik and RouterOS.

We are providing a VPN service with PPTP, OVPN and SSTP, using x86 RouterOS.
Yesterday I upgraded from 5.24 to enjoy the new features and kernel. I have waited long enough after 6.x coming to stable version. 6.4 failed me with freezes randomly when a client connected, as well as the earlier mentioned grayed out settings anywhere, randomly. After this, as I have read that 6.2 is more stable, downgraded to see the same freezing issue. Downgraded back to 5.24 to see that SSTP now fails, showing TLS shutdown error when a client tried to connect. Upgraded to 6.3 to see that the server reboots about every hour (no leak in graph) and freeze occasionally.

Just upgraded router form 5.26 to 6.4.

Simple queues are all messed up.

First I noticed that Queue Tree was messed up. It seems there is significant change in Queue Tre but upgrade is unable to convert to new format. All Queue Types were set as red and deactivated and Parent set to unknown. That lead to Simple queues also stop working.

I've "fixed" queue tree by setting up parent=global for each item. I do not know if that is correct.

However, Simple Queues still do not work. The only one rule I made to catch some traffic is general rule that covers all traffic, and even that does not catch traffic properly (for example, I have throughput of 8 mbps on interface but this simple queue shows just about 40-50 kbps.
 0    name="queue1" target="" parent=none packet-marks="" priority=8/8 queue=default-small/default-small limit-at=0/0 
      max-limit=100M/100M burst-limit=0/0 burst-threshold=0/0 burst-time=0s/0s 

If I narrow catching by any way, rule catches nothing.

This is ridiculous that such basic function is messed up this way by upgrade.

I wish Mikrotik would beta test a little more before releasing these files to the general public, or release it as "beta" and tell people it's for testing. Releasing something as "stable", implies just that.

I'm sure the Mikrotik Dev's are working hard on a fix! :)

When will documentation be updated to reflect IMPORTANT changes in Mikrotik commands?!?!?!?!

Example from Manual:

/queue simple add name=private target-addresses=10.1.1.0/24 max-limit=256K/512K interface=ether2

Until now it worked fine but in the latest Mikrotik this command is invalid!!!!

I guess it is not to much if we ask that we at least get working product with proper documentation that we pay for?

Right. They are working hard but still cannot fix issues that are noted years ago. But they are very successful to produce more bugs. :)

We should be careful not to go too far as Mikrotik stuff has a habit of banning people just for complaining too much.

With MT you have to be in waiting mode, not to hurry. Just stick to some earlier version and do not let the PR talk you convince to upgrade.

RouterOS6.4, wont accept mesh script… (Groove A-52HPn)

NOTE: Script (with mesh setup) loaded without issue on RouterOS6.2 and mesh system worked fine.

Script below:
/interface mesh port
add interface=wlan1 mesh=mesh1
add interface=wlan2 mesh=mesh1

Now this wont load with a RouterOS6.4 install.

I then rolled back to v6.2 reloaded the script successfully – then upgraded to RouterOS6.4 (using WinBox) - to see what was happening – see attached:

The mesh ports “look configured” for wlan1 and wlan2 – but if you do a print the interfaces are unknown – see terminal window output.

When I export the script I only get this:
/interface mesh port
add mesh=mesh1
add mesh=mesh1
without any reference to wlan1 or 2

If I try to type it in I get this error:
[admin@MSH-PORT-PMP-1] /interface mesh port> add interface=wlan1 mesh=mesh1
input does not match any value of interface


Any suggestions from MirkroTik – have you guys broken something or changed anything in this area?

Hello,

we have several ROS 5.26 installations on XenServer 6.2 in HVM mode running fine (support for xen/vmware/openvm tools would be superior for live migration support). But upgrading to 6.4 or doing a fresh install of 6.4 from ISO image leads to 100% cpu load during boot process and VM's boot process stops. Console only shows
Loading Linux...................
Loading initrd.rgz............
Ready.
In XenCenter we can see cpu load graphs constantly at 100% for 1 vcpu (doesn't matter how many vcpu we put in). Occasionally network traffic goes up to 1.5 kbps but we can't connect to any mac based service to do any initial (ip) configuration. I changed vcpu from 2 down to 1 and ram from 1024 MB down to 128 MB, but hadn't any success.

What may i look for? How to debug this any further?

What mean the first change? *) wireless - improved 802.11n wireless retransmission
When sending traffic over wireless links in some rare cases the N data rate could drop to the lowest value and would not recover so fast. This version has a fix for those rare cases.
Hi Uldis,

are you really sure that the problem has nothing to do with similar problem in NV2 we are trying to solve long time? Isn't it possible to use this knowledge to solve the NV2 problem? Will the 80211n fix be ported to 5.x ROS line? Or there is no such bug in 5.x 80211n ?

NV2 AP tends to lock modulation for some clients - it can be easily detected by checking the 'age' of RX signal info on a client (wireless registration-table print stats - we use a perl script to check this via API). The locked modulation can be a low one or even the high one (harder to detect unless the client is not working on the high modulation).

It would be great if they always had a public stable version, and a public beta version. A LOT more people would test the beta version... and it wouldn't be such a big deal if there were problems like this because you could talk about them on the forum. Then, after a certain amount of time and stability, make this the new stable version and start a new beta version.
Keep in mind that when you label a version "beta", you get less people using THAT version compared to a version labeled "stable", which in turn means far less chance of bugs being caught in that period.
It seems that there is no automated testing (including regression testing) on the platform.
And THAT seems to be the root of the problem here.

I'd assume that the MikroTik devs have some tests for the basic functions and compliance for the different protocols... but that's not the same as UI testing and "integration testing" (read: unit testing higher level modules that use the lower level modules), which are the kinds of issues most frequently observed between "stable" versions.
I'd like to see something like what Kerio has where they have a private (by request/invitation) forum for beta versions. There you can discuss the issues with the beta and get input on whether the problem is unique to your installation or common across many. Obviously you can't discuss beta out on the public forum. After a time in private beta, Kerio will also release various milestone versions like release candidates (rc) for the world to test and report back on the public forum any issues found.

You get a much better product that way. And when something doesn't work, it's caught well prior to release.

Cheers,
Jon

yes, it is. 20561 is not WinBox, it's MAC WinBox. use IP address to connect to the router. now you're using MAC address

'target' in v6 is mandatory parameter, I don't know why your target="" is not invalid :)
This is ridiculous that such basic function is messed up this way by upgrade.

Yes, i have the same problems on RB951G-2HnD, RB751U-2HnD and on x86-system, but also in some other dialog windows (NTP-client, NTP-server, DNS, Users). Dear developers when will you fix this problem?

Mine is RB450G. After updated to v6.4, the LAN speed dropped from 100+ MB/sec(gigabit) to merely 7MB/sec(100Mb?)! Restored to V6.2 and everything is back to normal.

I found that out and tried bit it does not work anyways.

As upgrade was unable to use previous configuration, backup configuration was unusable too, and even full export of configuration was unusable due to changes in syntax i had to set it all up from scratch.

And then I found out that simple queues actually do not work at all.

You say "until now", but this change has been there for several versions already. It's not a v6.4 change.
So your point is that change is there for several versions but documentation still instructs us to use syntax that is no more valid and there is no new documentation that shows how to use new syntax?

Well, As I learn from my mistakes I do not update router with all MikrotikOS release as it is notorious on introducing new bugs, changing syntax and other unpolite stuff. I decided to upgrade with this version as it seemed not many complaints followed its publication.

That was another mistake.

If I am not using too much of equipment under Mikrotik Os and switch to other product would be far too expensive, I would do so.

This became ridiculous. How about you start investing in better quality control and producing software that actually works instead introducing more and more hardware that is not needed that much?

Yeah I spent 4 days undoing an upgrade to a router. DHCP was acting weird after the upgrade, although L2TP/IPSEC was better than in 5.26. Also experienced all the issues with winbox and syntax changes. What an unfortunate mess :/

Another script stopped working...

The following command does not work anymore:
/interface> print count-only where !comment
0
In previous versions this command returned number of items that not had a comment. Now it always returns 0. This also fails in other contexts.
User "kotsius" also reports this problem: http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=76416
Is it permanent change or a bug that will it be fixed?
This is useful command.

Hello everybody,

I have just purchased my first routerboard, RB951G-2HnD, which came with ver. 5.24 os and I wonder if this is a right time to upgrade the software.
Looking at this topic found that 6.4 has some issues, and on download page there is also 5.26 version available...
Should I upgrade to 6.x or 5.26, or just wait for some more weeks for a mature release?

Please note that I am newbie in Mikrotik OS, and I use it for basic internet connection via PPPoE from my ISP.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion/answer.

*Gets up on a soapbox.*

I feel that the ROS is getting into a situation where outstanding bugs and issues are not being fixed, and new features that have even more bugs are being added to the package, compounding the situation to where it is unacceptable.

Take a little advice:

Set up a triage on a whiteboard.

Make three columns.

* What needs fixed immediate:

* What can be resolved in the next few releases:

* What can be shelved BUT it does need to be resolved BEFORE the next full version roll out.

Keep this board updated and moving!

Do NOT add any more features or enhancements until the current package has all known and future bugs resolved.

This is what got CCP, the creators of EVE-Online in the dip early on. They threw an update package out without bothering to resolve outstanding issues with the game play and subsequently got reamed out by the developer community. Even the novice players realized the mistakes they were committing and made notice.

CCP realized their cock-up and the next update resolved nearly EVERY issue in the game and got rave reviews and attaboys from everyone.

Do not continue on this release path you are on now.

Fair advice, please follow it.

This proves that the Mikrotik does not test before they release a new version.
Mikrotik leaves that job for us.
+1. I am a relatively new MikroTik user, and after several updates breaking things I am now weary of new upgrades. What also concerns me is how many of the bugs seem to be regressions... I have been a software engineer for a long time. It seems that there is no automated testing (including regression testing) on the platform.

At least as far as I am concerned I am on 6.1, because that seems to work for me. But I am now reading the "6.x released" threads for at least a week or two before I decide to upgrade to see if it is going to break things. I am getting tired of doing restores for releases breaking things I use.
I just upgraded from 3.30 to 5.25. Every time I tried to upgrade to 4.x I had to roll back nearly half of my customers to 3.30 to keep it working.

I had decent results with 5.11 and 802.11n hardware. I finally took a chance and updated my A/G hardware to 5.25 and it finally matches the performance of 3.30 in 95% of my equipment.

I have upgraded a RB750GL from 5.26 to 6.4
everything went well, except from the simple queues that needed a little adjustments.

The weird thing is that with 6.4 it doesnt respond to pings, and so all of my CPE's just auto-reboot every 15min... and if I downgrade to 5.26 it responds to pings again.

Even with no firewall rules, just plain routing

I'd suggest upgrading to 5.26 and then sticking to it until a) you get more familiar with Mikrotik RouterOS and b) 6.x stabilizes.

Why would this happen on the same type of boards, same routeros. Voip doesnt want to work anymore, If I enable tracking of connections it goes to the normal mode like in working1.jpg. Working2.jpg changes to red even if i disable enable again.

+1. Add documentation to the list. A WIKI is great, but the users can't update it and many of the pages are old, outdated, and lacking information. All of the features should have appropriate, correct, and good documentation when they are released.

I"m sure this was already mentioned, but multiple times on all my RB912's I log in and go into interface to change settings and its all grayed out, as if I'm logged in as read-only. I simply close out the window and re-open it, then it allows changes.

Nstreme seems totally worthless starting with v6+ and NV2 has stability issues with latency all over the place. Throughput never was what it used to be. Not sure what's going on with Mikrotik lately, but it seems things are slowly getting worse and worse! We use Mikrotik for all our PtP's, and it seems every firmware has no improvements for Nstreme or NV2. I used to get SOLID 1ms with Nstreme, now its 14-26ms and throughput is complete crap. I remember when my "Pthroughput" used to say 145000, now it never goes above 45000kbps !!

This problem keeps getting repeated over and over here. It is being fixed in 6.5

6.4 responds to pings, something may have went wrong during your upgrade.

The new traceroute count option does not stop the traceroute itself, the output is still being refreshed. This is quite annoying when using API calls on traceroute, this just keeps generating output.
Is this a bug or is this expected behaviour (and how should I then use the new traceroute with the API?).

at the moment you can try to use duration together with the count, just note, duration will limit time, while count will limit requests sent. So for example
/tool traceroute 8.8.8.8 count=5 duration=10
will stop in CLI and API after duration.

It should be fixed in final 6.3. I've reported it already when 6.3 (or 6.2?) was in development. Support said that 6.3 will have it fixed.

I halted our deployment of Mikrotik devices because I feel RouterOS isn't as stable as it once was, and could be. Even the Winbox Read-Only bug should never have reared it's head, and was a easily avoidable bug.

With a company policy in place that says all networking devices must at all times have the latest firmware/OS releases, and with RouterOS' supposedly stable releases causing all kinds of havoc, my job is on the line if a router should misbehave.

Sorry to be rude, but that is a very stupid policy.
We currently have severe problems with the latest 'stable' software on our Juniper T4000 / TX Matrix and MX480/MX960 routers. We also had severe problems with previous 'stable' IOS software on our ME3400 switches.
You should ALWAYS test the software before rolling out to the devices. You should test all the functionality you are using in the field.

I don't agree with the policy, but then again, I don't get to make company policy. Stupid policies are usually implemented by people whom know nothing -or very little of IT, but are decision makers of IT Infrastructure.

IMO, his policy is as solid as it can get. People working Enterprise networks expect their hardware to be solid, stable and have world-class support. I've seen some of all three from this company, but the support category needs more work, especially when it comes to dealing with bugs and client requests.

The last company I worked for had Juniper MPLS routers but their power supplies kept frying. Despite all assurances and denials, Juniper lost their shirts and asses over the debacle. Over 2 million USD in routers had to be replaced before they got a handle on it. But by that time the company was looking back at CISO and making quotes for another capital purchase.

With a company policy in place that says all networking devices must at all times have the latest firmware/OS releases, and with RouterOS' supposedly stable releases causing all kinds of havoc, my job is on the line if a router should misbehave.
This is like many others here! They mean it in a good direction and on a fine wise but don´t know
anything about the entire case that with the latest as stable market version more problems can be
putting in likes the used firmware version before! But to coming out of this we all need in my eyes
a more detailed changelog where all points must be named, that we can easier choosing which
firmware we want to install, but than you are running in the next trap, because the most vendors
want to to see the latest firmware version installed on our devices!
You should ALWAYS test the software before rolling out to the devices. You should test all the functionality you are using in the field.
I consider!

With everything said, I believe they should've pulled this 6.4 release from the main page, or at least, move it to the Beta Releases page.

....an apology or at least a formal acknowledgement would also go a long way.

1. Apology
2. Pull 6.x completelly from page and start over :) - Most of my router are upgradable to 6.x, so it's a real joy to see versions passing by like on highway - you can't really clearly see what's going on around you, but you are moving forward very fast.

Eish kwagga feel your pain . I can only assume some braindead auditor or CA thought of that scheme ?


The 6 releases has been pretty poor so far . Barring the boadroom AP's we use there is just no way I would let a 6.XX device touch my network at this point.

Re: v6.4 released

Guys, I've been with Mikrotik since the late 1.x versions. So I'm pretty familiar with the ways things go. Every major release usually has some bugs to work out. Yes, it would be nice for them to have a beta testing system, like Cisco and Juniper (giant companies with much more expensive routers). I think I've only seen 1 or 2 releases that had such severe problems where they were pulled from the stable tree (back around the 3.x releases). On your major production routers, you never want to go to a newer release without looking at the forums. I've found this problem with other smaller companies (ie Ubiquiti) also.

I currently run 6.2 and 6.4 on some of my production routers. I've seen the winbox bug on 6.4 (it is a display bug only). For most basic and advance functions (queues, ospf, bgp, L2 MPLS and wireless) its been pretty solid. I did go to the MUM this month and there was mention that L3 MPLS is still broken. Because the CCR router is based on the Tilera processor, there isn't support for version 5.x. This is because 6.x is based on a much newer Linux kernel version and the older kernel doesn't have Tilera support. I've seen some major performance improvements from 5.x to 6.x.

Because the CCR routers are so inexpensive, I "double up" on all my core routers (which should be done anyway). By having two routers with VRRP, you can virtually eliminate downtime.

But I do very much wish they would put a "Known bugs" (including introduced bugs) list somewhere on the website or appended to that releases changelog. It would save a lot of grief.

Hello Folks!

A success story comes here anyway, after reading problems all over RoS6.x we decided to migrate from 5.25 to 6.4 at same time we recieved our first CCR1016 G12 that replaced one RB450G that was overloaded all time, and finally also burned the two green capacitors, they become "fat".

ROS6.4 now on CCR, RB333, RB750 at our site with ipsec tunnels etc. all working fine.

Two things has been noticed, our ddns scripts broke by some unknown reason, will put in a PMR on it later on.
Also noticed some problem in webmin menues, had to open and close, and open again in order to be able entering data inside.

Beside those two issues, nothing else has been discovered.

If it is ok for some days, we will migrate rest of our wireless networks and wba:s to 6.4 as well.

Some of the bugs with 6.4 only appear when you try to edit queues and such with the gui tools. Delete all mangles and then reapply with changes makes some things work. This is how you can have one person say it is solid and other say it does not work, etc. In other words, the types of bugs MikroTik creates for itself does the brand no favors.

Hi Normis (or anyone else) in regards to RouterOSv6.4 release notes "fixed watchdog on mipsle boards" - could you please enlighten me on what the issue was with the watchdog to begin with as I am working with a network issue (Groove A-52HPn, on RouterOSv6.2) and I'd like to know:
- if the watchdog is helping or actually causing the issues I'm seeing.
thankyou.

Groove A-52HPn has MIPSBE architecture based CPU. And this entry does not apply to routers using this arch.

All that watchdog does - reboots the software of the router if period of non-responsiveness is detected. On MIPSLE routers it was not possible to enable watchdog, however this was fixed with 6.4 release. On itself watchdog is not causing the issues. If the router is easily accessed, you can try to disable watchdog and see what happens, usually router just becomes unresponsive/some process hangs and uses a lot of CPU resources as this is what watchdog detects.

Thanks janisk, my "dyslexia" did not pick up the difference between MIPSBE and MIPSLE!

Is anyone else seeing issues with DHCPv6 client in v6.x?
Immediately after upgrading to 6.0 my RB2011 was unable to obtain a v6 lease, the client just says "searching..."
I've upgraded to 6.4 and still have the same problem.

Looking on the server side it shows the lease has been offered.

Sorry steen, but I'm not seeing this issue.
I have a static mesh setup running (using Groove A-52HPn), that was onRouterOS6.2 which I upgraded to ROS6.4 last week. I'm not having any issues with The Dude 3.6 displaying the data rates.
Have you tried opening the link, checking the interface setting, then Apply, OK?

It was all over network map, maybe a dude problem, I did delete and added back the links to every device that was upgraded to from 5.22 to 6.4 .
So now all is back to normal, just fiddly to sit there and delete / add links, but no problem with that, had to sit there anyway monitoring devices coming up after migration anyway, so I had something to do so to say. :-)

Hello Folks!

After upgrading RB411 from RoS 5.20 to RoS 6.4 and upgrade the microcode from 4.47 to 3.07 ether1 does not pass any traffic anymore.

I did a rollback to RoS 5.20 but kept the microcode at 3.07, then ether1 started to pass traffic again.

Have anyone seen this before ?

For information, I did also put in a PMR to Microtik for assistance with a supout file as well.

@Mikrotik

Please add back the ability to retrieve array keys. The capability is now completely missing in 6.4 and makes using arrays difficult, if they key names are unknown.

This capability seems to have regressed starting with 6.2 (i.e. the ability to reference array elements using word keys. The problem with this is that, if you "get" system a configuration "as-value," it returns it as an array of "key=value," which results in the 6.2 change taking over and making it impossible to retrieve "key" itself, as was possible before 6.2. This, of course makes it impossible to retrieve an unknown "key."

I have detailed the issue here: http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php ... 91#p389491

Thanks

Hello Folks!

We have now successfully migrated from RoS5.22 to RoS6.4 in all our network, RB411, RB433, RB333, RB600, CCR, RB2011, RB450G, RB750 etc.

No problems or abnormal has been observed so far.

Only noticed it that in winbox you sometimes has to open and close menus/windows in order to get them "writable".

I've upgraded to 6.4 and still have the same problem.
I didn´t see a problem with the DHCPv6 (PD) client, but the servers had to be disabled because it was taxing the CPU's absurdly.
It worked fine on 6.3 but it's giving me trouble on 6.4.

Re: v6.4 released

Thu Oct 10, 2013 7:26 am

@MikroTik:

There was a bug that was reported about RouterOS not responding to L2TP connections using the same interface the original request came in on, where there are multiple Internet-bound interfaces. The primary issue being that RouterOS defaults to sending everything out the interface having an IP address that is numerically lowest. By the way, this issue affects not just L2TP but all RouterOS services.

Today, I discovered that this issue also affects SRC-NAT for protocols such as ICMP and UDP. Here is the issue:

We have two interfaces: ISP1 and ISP2. ISP1 has the numerically lower IP address number. We are using PCC (following the WIKI example) for load balancing and availability. What's happening is that SIP phones attempting to register when going through ISP2 never reach the SIP server.

I setup a couple of mangle rules to force one phone and one laptop to go through ISP2 and enabled logging, in RouterOS, to see what interface the packets were going out. According to RouterOS, the packets were being sent out the correct interface (ISP2). Note: this particular issue did not affect web browsing.

I next setup a sniffer between the MikroTik router and the DSL modem and was shocked to discover that RouterOS was sending the SIP registration packets out the correct interface (ISP2) but the packets were NAT'ed to have a source of the address belonging to ISP1. Further investigation showed that, if I performed a traceroute on the laptop, it would not obey the routing mark and would instead take a path through ISP1. However, if I typed "What's my IP" into Google search, it would indicate that my IP address is that of ISP2. And if I did a bandwidth test, the throughput would be consistent with that of ISP2. So, for TCP it was fine, but for non-connection-oriented protocols it was failing -- even though I had no rule distinguishing between the two.

So again, RouterOS is failing to properly tie traffic to the appropriate interface. It should be obvious that if a packet is within the network scope of a particular interface, it should go out that interface and no other. This is frustrating as, until this whole issue of RouterOS not obeying interface IP addressing when sending out packets if fixed, I have to use workarounds the negate that redundancy and failover.

I am using RouterOS 6.4

Hello Folks!

Problems arrive.... with RoS6.4 and RB5.22, now!

One customer called in after being away a month, their antenna was on RoS5.22 based on RB411.
They told me not traffic passes to internet. Antenna was connected, good signal, I could login from outside and reach internet from their antenna.

Traffic over ether0 was only RX, no traffic sent back to their computers inside.
I could ping their stuff from their antenna and from elsewhere in our network.

However no traffic origin from their computers were returned.
Many other users in same wlan sector as the trouble antenna hand no problems.

I then upgraded the antenna to RoS6.4, but it did not make any difference.

I did then restart the basestation RB600 RoS6.4 and then it suddenly worked.

After just some hours yet another customer called in, same problem, same procedure was repeated and it worked.

It seems like the basestation RoS 6.4 and RoS5.22 does selective lock traffic or something.

Very strange!

Anyone who have seen this.

I wonder if this is the same problem you are having:

6.4 crached. Not even a watchdog restart. Nothing. Just crached.

I got link to the 6.5 from the support, but it is not working now.

I need quick help as the occassional restarts were bad, but a fully frozen router is much much worse.
Please :(

Hi, thanks.

power cycling helped.

is it safe to downgrade from 6.4 to 6.3?

6.4 is stable, the only real problem is that you have to open winbox windows twice to make changes.

Yes, it is safe to downgrade.

That was 6.3.

The router keeps restarting without known causes ever since 6.2.
Sometimes watchdog, sometimes kernel panic.
That is not stabilty.

6.4 freezed completely.

I saw 6.5 changelog:
*) route - fixed crash that could be triggered by change in nexthop
address resolution;

Which seems to me to be implemented in 6.4 as the last log messages before freezing were in the 'route' category.

I'll try to revert to 6.3.

I just upgraded an RB433 w/5.25/3.07FW to 6.4 and it reset to defaults.

Luckily it was my office AP so it is an inconvenience rather than a tower climb or minimum of a service call.

All winbox windows are affected by this bug. I hope it will be fixed soon because it is inconvenient to reopen the windows all the time.

I tried version 6.X
It simply crashes on 386 using PCIe. When I then went back to 5.26 it was a lot better.
With PCI slots becoming less and les PCIe is very important.
I reported it +/- 4 weeks ago and the response on the ticket from Mikrotik is not so good

I have also a very strange scenario with data transfer.
The link seems to be connected the status it indicates data flow yet packets are dropped.
I do not understand how a link stays connected with no data flow
I had very good VOIP and very good video on it.

But suddenly it is turning into a disaster

It appears that if I reboot the system every +/- 24 hours then the software is "more stable"
Looks like a memory leak somewhere.

Through the years there has been many mishaps and many errors with the software.
It would have been nice if MT would have good communication.

It is like 3 steps forward two steps back.

And then there are no response not on tickets not by email not by forum.
With all the current problems and limited communications it is feeling we are a bunch of mushrooms.

We have e new system but due to PCIe not working it is shelved.

Interesting,

I down graded to ver 5.26.
The signal strength increased
Tx / Rx CCQ improved.
Does not make sense.

I experienced today a not clear issue with 6.4 version.
I had a router (RB951) with routerOS 5.22 working well for long time (RouterOS 5.22 is about one year old).
I use it with PPTP BCP vpn client, in a network with other 5 client devices and one server device (RB450G with RouterOS 5.22).
I upgraded this RB951 client and the BCP stopped working: I can't see the correct neighbor in the list and can't ping the internal Bridge ip addresses from this RB951.
The pptp link is up well, but the layer 2 bridging doesn't work.
I tried to enable traking in firewall connections, as I know that in 6.4 it's disabled by default, with no results.
In the neighbor discovery interfaces, all is correct.
I tried with /system package downgrade command to downgrade it to 5.22, and it returned working well into its network, with bcp bridging working well.
So I'm sure it's some 6.4 changes which produces the issue with bcp: does anyone know any change with could affect BCP vpn?
Ttanks.

I upgraded from 5.x on my 493G and uPNP broke. Not sure why. I've tried disabling and re-enabling, and have tried changing the inside interface for UPNP from the wireless-bridge to the inside switch master port. I'd appreciate any pointers. Broken Facetime = murderous wife.

Hi,
changing CPU settings to 600MHz stabilized the router.
MikroTik told me to return the device.
