v6.18

Fri Aug 01, 2014 2:29 pm

What's new in 6.18 (2014-Aug-01 10:47):

*) sstp - report TLS encryption as well;
*) safe mode - do not allow user with less permissions to disrupt active safe mode;
*) console - print command does not try to reuse item numbers assigned by
previous invocations of 'print' when doing 'print where' or 'print follow',
items are numbered consecutively starting from '0'.
*) console - fix compact export of some partially modified
configuration values;
*) api - use the same syntax for property values as is used in 'print detail'
output, with the exception of numbers, that are not shown with suffixes
(K/M/G/T or bitrate) and are not contracted or separated into digit groups,
and "yes"/"no" values that continue to be reported as "true"/"false".
*) console - show internal numbers in the form returned by 'find' (like *9A0F)
instead of "(unknown)" when configuration refers to
deleted items. This change also applies to API.
*) ipsec - fix addition of default policy template;
*) console - values of type 'nil' were returning 'nil' as result of most
operations. Now it compares less than all values except 'nil'
and 'nothing', and compares inequal to all values except 'nil'.
This was changed to make 'print where' and 'find where' more useful.
An example. Previously the following command
/ip route print where routing-mark!=nosuch
Would not print routes that had no value for 'routing-mark' set, because
(nil != "nosuch") was equal to nil. Now it evaluates to 'true', and this
command will also print all routes that have no 'routing-mark' value set.
*) l2tp - fixed problem on CCR where server responded with wrong source address;
*) console export - put qutes around item names that start with a digit;
*) sntp client - added support for dns lookup of ntp servers;
*) console - when exporting to file, use name ending in '.in_progress', and
rename when export finishes;
*) bridge setups sometimes could crash on CCR devices;
*) fixed port flapping in 1G mode on sfp-sfpplus1 on CRS226;
*) fixed SXT ac model losing it's interface if changing regulatory settings in "routerboard" menu
As usual, version can be found on our download page, or just click "check for updates" if you already run som v6.x release

On 6.18 x86, I do not see the IP>Cloud menu anymore, not in console either.

Any comments?

ip cloud is only for MT hardware, not x86.
With great knowledge comes great responsibility, because of ability to recognize id... incompetent people much faster.

Shouldn't the cloud menu be not available on x86?

There is nothing that is supposed to work for x86 in this menu. So why confuse people

Yeah, its not supposed to work on x86, but the fact that the menu is completely missing is a bit misleading to me personally.
It would make more sense IMO to show it anyway, but show "Only supported on RouterBoards"

Also, importing an export file which has "/ip cloud" setting defined in it will fail on x86 this way.

Of course, that is nit-picking and only my personal opinion :)

Re: v6.18

Fri Aug 01, 2014 3:07 pm

Ok, if I install this version, the wireless package; is it the 'legacy' one, or the new -fp one? Or do I still install the wireless CAPsMAN package to get the new wireless package?

Or, when a radio already has wireless-fp installed, an upgrade (with the auto process in sys/package/upgrade sequence) will automatically install the upgrade for the wireless -fp, or do I also load the Wirless CAPsMAN?

I am confused now after this post; http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php ... 12#p440012

So, can we have a very, very clear statement on what we need to do in the upgrade from different versions, already or not already installed -fp, to get the new wireless features installed on a board that is going to run 6.18...

Please....

It will not mess with your packages. CAPSMAN and 802.11ac still requires Wireess-FP.
If you use legacy wireless, upgrade will install legacy wireless. If you have wireless-fp, upgrade will update wireless-fp.

If you use wireless legacy, and decide you want to use wireless-fp, simply upgrade, and then enable wireless-fp in packages menu (it is included in the bundle).

Ohhhhhhh! :D

You omit this on changelog:

*) webfig: fixed right when creating new script or schedule, now is possible to set/unset ftp right;
*) winbox: fixed right when creating new script or schedule, now is possible to set/unset ftp right;
*) user-manager: fixed profile limitation creation, now is possible to specify the owner;

;)

You are joking with me? :lol: All the bug I find and (very thanks!) your staff fix are never written on changelog!!!

7 hours after the 6.18 was made available still only a hand full of small issues surfaced amongst us users??? What is this, do we finally see a very reliable version or is everybody already having his friday afternoon party before going on holidays.... :D

All I notice so far is the package upgrade in winbox is not working. Probably because the servers are either overloaded, or also on holiday...?

IGMP proxy is still broken in 6.18!!!!
Since when do you plan ignoring major bugs and problems???? I can't understand that mikrotik don't know how to fix simple problem with IGMP proxy, for which I believe half hour would be enough!
It's sad that you are selling broken products, you don't wont to fix them nor you wont refund money!

We have many QRT's that don't have flapping. It's not every board that does it. We are seeing it in somewhere between 10 and 20 % of boards

Yourself find the solution: is not related to RouterOS version, maybe BIOS [firmware] version?

and "yes"/"no" values that continue to be reported as "true"/"false".
So what has changed? When I first saw that part in the change log (in the RC days...), I was starting to think exactly that suffixed numbers and Boolean values are changed, but no... They're an exception, so what's different from before here?

I must admit it looks strange. I was really afraid to upgrade because of that ;). How is this possible that nobody found any bug?! If there is nothing wrong means something is wrong! Maybe after update everybody have their devices bricked and cannot access forum?! ;)
Only ropeba gave me some faith.... ;)

Anyway, I have updated and everything is OK. Thanks MikroTik for fixes and improvements!

I actually have a problem, which was present with 6.17 when I upgraded from 6.15. I have a single IPSec tunnel that's bouncing up and down constantly on 6.17+. It'll be up 10 minutes, down 20, up 15, down 30, up 5, down 10... Seems to be no rhyme or reason to why it's up or down. 6.15 was stable. No settings have been changed since the upgrade. I noticed a lot of IPSec "fixes" in the changelog...sounds like a real fix is needed.

:cry: 6.18 on ppc RB1100AHx2 :cry:

STILL DO KERNEL PANIC FROM WHEN YOU HAVE REWRITED MPPE ON 6.8!!! :!:

ON CLIENT SIDE 6.18 NEVER CRASH, INDEPENDENTLY HOW YOU CONFIGURE THEM OR WHAT SERVER VERSION YOU USE

I have already submitted ticket at support and clearly explained how very simply you can duplicate the kernel crash/panic

I have also talk directly with some MikroTik Staff at MUM Venice 2014

pppoe-server + MRRU 1614 + MPPE encryption enabled + EoIP 1500 MTU = Kernel Panic when 1st user access by pppoe-client

And I'm still forced to use 6.7 on my 4 pppoe-server RB1100AHx2

Pratically near all devices on my network have 6.17 and I'm forced to still use 6.7 on pppoe-servers for the MPPE bug!

Ticket#2014032566001217 (2014-03-25) BUG 6.12: Replicable kernel crash when try to discover why winbox not working well from 6.8 over IP obtained from pppoe-client

I see the following in change log:

*) sntp client - added support for dns lookup of ntp servers;


Does that mean I can put "pool.ntp.org" into Primary Server?

/system ntp client set primary-ntp="pool.ntp.org"
invalid value for argument primary-ntp:
invalid value for argument ip-address
invalid value for argument ipv6-address


How does this work?

Re: v6.18

Sun Aug 03, 2014 11:56 am

I can hopefully provide some more detail here.

I had 2 x CCR1016-12G set up on the network running 6.17 with all packages installed (and un needed packages disabled) and with 3.18 router bios installed. The packages disabled are the likes of DHCP, Calea, GPS, Hotspot, Open Flow, PPP, UPS, User Manager, Wireless as they are not needed.

These routers are being built up to replace an MPLS core network and is not yet in production so they can be used for testing.

I opened up the router remotely through the Dude winbox option. Then I clicked Settings > Packages and then clicked Check for updates. The update to 6.18 was offered and I clicked download and upgrade. The downloads started slowly then sped up and slowed down again. Once downloaded they rebooted and I was disconnected. They didn't come back after the reboot.

I have not yet had a chance to go on site with the routers and do additional reboots (Will do so) but maybe this will be enough for some people to start testing to validate or for Mikrotik themselves to take a look.

Thank you all for your time.

Regards
Alexander

Maybe you should try again to update (maybe a file corruption on download or similar).
I upgraded 3 devices with the same processor and firmware with no issue.
And no one else seem to have troubles.

Re: v6.18

I lost 5 routers in the update, so I wouldn't say "no one else has had any troubles". I've also seen several other posts with problems.

Something in the 6.16/6.17 config killed 3x CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+ and 2x CCR1016-12G.
My CCR1009: 3 out of 22 units updated, then continuously rebooted at "Starting Services"
My CCR1016: 2 out of 9 units updates, then hung at "loading kernel from band"

All 5 units seem to have a problem with the config. resetting the devices to factory allowed them to boot. However each returned to the crashed state once the config was restored. I was able to revert to 6.15, restore, then export compact, then copy/paste each section of the export that I needed, leaving out anything that wasn't required to get back up and running. I was never able to figure out what exactly was killing them.

send all supout.rif files to support@mikrotik.com and i think network diagram should be added also.

I lost 5 routers in the update, so I wouldn't say "no one else has had any troubles". I've also seen several other posts with problems.
My bad then. There where no complains posted for 6.17->6.18 regarding this...
Please let us know! And especially let Mikrotik know.

At this point in time we can confirm that change of L2MTU value on CCR devices can cause a crash in RouterOS v6.18 - Current 6.19rc version fixes this issue, it is on our download page, below regular downloads

Hello,

I have been using Mikrotik and RouterOS for quite a long but never experienced such a problem as that happened today when i upgraded to v6.18
I have a routerboard 493G and routeros v6.17 with 2 wireless interfaces (atheros MT interfaces). I upgraded today to v6.18 to take advantage of the sstp fix. When i tried to connect to the router via winbox I received a Microsoft Visual C++ runtime error. I cannot access the router via wireless interfaces, only via the ethernet and only to webfig.
I have two urgent questions

1. How to downgrade to v6.17 (never before experienced an issue so I have never done this before).
2. If i downgrade to v6.17 should I have the WINBOX Microsoft Visual C++ runtime error ?
3. Is there any other way to overcome the WINBOX runtime error?

Thank you

Hi,
I'm interested in this also. I tried to put "cz.pool.ntp.org" in WebFig into NTP Client settings, but it doesn't accept that value.

What is feature "*) sntp client - added support for dns lookup of ntp servers;" for?

I see the following in change log:

*) sntp client - added support for dns lookup of ntp servers;


Does that mean I can put "pool.ntp.org" into Primary Server?

/system ntp client set primary-ntp="pool.ntp.org"
invalid value for argument primary-ntp:
invalid value for argument ip-address
invalid value for argument ipv6-address


How does this work?

What's new in 6.18 (2014-Aug-01 10:47):

*) sntp client - added support for dns lookup of ntp servers;
Added property "server-dns-names" in "/system ntp client" not shown in Winbox interface.
It is a bug or a feature?

You can put 0.pool.ntp.org in Winbox primary-ntp field and 1.pool.ntp.org in secondary-ntp field, but RouterOS will change dns names to resolved IP addressess.
You can use "/system ntp client set server-dns-names="0.pool.ntp.org,1.pool.ntp.org", but this DNS names can't be viewed or changed in Winbox.

If anyone has set the server-dns-names in the console I would recommend you get a backup now!

I have managed to brick my RB493G (mipsbe) 3 times already, the last 2 times were to be sure that was the cause and it wasent a fluke, after setting that and rebooting it would get to starting services then all the lights would go out and it would wait for about 30seconds then reboot and keep doing this.

I have also lost contact with a remote RB951-2n (mipsbe) which this setting was set but was not rebooted, so perhaps it periodically checks this setting not just on bootup

I'm having an issue with NTP on upgrading. None of my boxes will grab time anymore. I'm not sure what to do. It is affecting some of my services.

I have tried several ntp servers, i have disabled and enabled. It will convert the names to IP's but it will not update time.

Any suggestions?

I have the same issue on RB751's RB2011's, RB450G's.

Thanks

Hi :D
Problem:
RB450G
firmware: 3.18
Simple setup: 1 WAN (pppoe client to a bridged vdsl modem) 1 LAN masqueraded to WAN, a basic firewall and some QoS.
I was running 6.15 and it was fine.
Upgraded to 6.18.
Device hung/stuck on reboot.
After 15min I had to hard reset it, after that it came online @ 6.18.
I upgraded to the latest firmware & reboot.
System came back online, but errors out when on system/packages
I mark an un-needed package for uninstall: "Uninstall Error - can not uninstall bundled package (6)"
I downgraded to 6.17.
Reboots correctly, and it looks ok (I can mark packages for uninstall).
I again upgrade to 6.18.
Device reboots correctly,
but I can't select packages for uninstall (same error as above),
*and* the pppoe client on the WAN interface is lost.
On NAT/Firewall/Mangle/UPNP and everywhere else where the pppoe interface was mentioned I see a red "unknown" entry.
At this point I connect a spare router and make a coffee, lol.

Any ideas?
Should I netinstall it?
I have no prob reinstalling or redoing my config since it's a simple setup,
but if something triggers this behavior on RB maybe it should be investigated.
If needed I can send my config to devs if any1 has the will to troubleshot further.

Use netisntall 6.18 for install routeros-mipsbe.6.18.npk and I suggest you lose the habit to uninstall the packets, simply disable them, if you not want see the menù on interface.

Hi there. Does anyone see a problem with IPSEC session estabilishment on 6.18 please?
PC form LAN (Shrewsoft VPN ver. 2.2.2) cant connect Cisco ASA in the public Internet now. RB 951G-2HnD does NAT on my LAN perimeter.
As ASA is out of my control, I cant provide more details form its log. Anyway ASA admin said something about "Duplicate first packet"...

I am sure on older RouterOS version everything worked fine. Unfortunatelly I dont have 6.17 packages as you dont provide them for download any more...

When establishing the VPN through my mobile connection, tunnel is brought up succesfuly = there is something wrong with RB :-(
