v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Wed Jul 26, 2017 2:36 pm

What's new in 6.41rc3 (2017-Jul-26 09:32):

Important note!!! Backup before upgrade!
RouterOS (v6.40rc36-rc40 and) v6.41rc1+ contains new bridge implementation that supports hardware offloading (hw-offload).
This update will convert all interface "master-port" configuration into new bridge configuration, and eliminate "master-port" option as such.
Bridge will handle all Layer2 forwarding and the use of switch-chip (hw-offload) will be automatically turned on based on appropriate conditions.
The rest of RouterOS Switch specific configuration remains untouched in usual menus for now.
Please, note that downgrading to previous RouterOS versions will not restore "master-port" configuration, so use backups to restore configuration on downgrade.


Before an upgrade:
1) Remember to make backup/export files before an upgrade and save them on another storage device;
2) Make sure the device will not lose power during upgrade process;
3) Device has enough free storage space for all RouterOS packages to be downloaded.

!) bridge - implemented software based vlan-aware bridges;
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:I ... _Filtering
!) switch - "master-port" conversion into a bridge with hardware offload "hw" option (CLI only);
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:S ... Offloading
!) bridge - general development of hw-offload bridge implementation (introduced in v6.40rc36);
*) CRS3xx - switch VLAN configuration integrated within bridge VLAN configuration with hw-offload;
*) arp - fixed invalid static ARP entries after reboot on interfaces without IP address;
*) bonding - improved relialibility on bonding interface removal;
*) bridge - fixed ARP setting (introduced in v6.40rc36);
*) bridge - fixed multicast forwarding (introduced in v6.40rc36);
*) bridge - implemented dynamic entries for active MST port overrides;
*) bridge - implemented software based "igmp-snooping" (CLI only);
*) bridge - implemented software based MSTP (CLI only);
*) bridge - removed "frame-types" and "ingress-filtering" for bridge interfaces (introduced in v6.40rc36);
*) certificate - show "Expired" flag when initial CRL fetch fails;
*) e-mail - do not show errors when sending e-mail from script;
*) firewall - properly remove "address-list" entry after timeout ends;
*) hotspot - improved user statistics collection process;
*) interface - improved interface state change handling when multiple interfaces are affected at the same time;
*) ippool6 - try to assign desired prefix for client if prefix is not being already used;
*) lte - allow to specify the MAC address for passthrough mode;
*) ppp - added client support for Sierra MC7750;
*) rb2011 - fixed possible LCD blinking along with Ethernet LED;
*) rb922 - restored missing wireless interface on some boards;
*) sftp - added functionality which imports ".auto.rsc" file or reboots router on ".auto.npk" upload;
*) trafficgen - fixed "lost-ratio" showing incorrect statistics after multiple sequences;

If you experience version related issues, then please send supout file from your router to support@mikrotik.com. File must be generated while router is not working as suspected or after crash.

Hello everyone
I'm confused on the crs 125 series what is the best way,
Use the new vlan on bridge or stay using the switch menu?
Thanks.

Hi,

I am sitting in my office at work and have just update my RB2011UiAS-RM remotely, after rebooting the router am not able to access my router from the WAN side, my internet service provider is a WISP so I logged into my CPE and tried to SSH my router, I am able to login to the router but as soon as I login, the router stops responding for a few minutes and then comes back, same thing keeps happening when trying to SSH to the router. Will have to check the router when I get home.

Folks, don't upgrade your router if it is on a remote location 8)

New bridge is back!!!!!!! Super excited to test IPv6 pool prefix hinting assignments too. Might not be until next week though.

My understanding from the 6.40rc36 and 38 releases was that the switch chip menu was to not be used for ports not in a new bridge and ideally all configurations should move to the new VLAN aware hw-offload bridges.

I do recall a conflicting post from a MikroTik poster so clarification from own of the MikroTik folks would be great.

Leds work on boot. But after router come in working state they switch off.

My understanding from the 6.40rc36 and 38 releases was that the switch chip menu was to not be used for ports not in a new bridge and ideally all configurations should move to the new VLAN aware hw-offload bridges.
Currently, it is implemented only for CRS3xx series switches.
If you see the table of crs 1xx/2xx series
It have a - on bridge vlan filter
On CRS125 VLANs still have to be configured in "/interface ethernet switch" menu to keep hw-offload working. If they are configured in "/interface bridge vlan", the hw-offload will turn off.

The VLAN does not work on the Atheros 8327 chip switch.
I create Bridge1 and add Ethernet1 and Ethernet2.
I'm creating VLAN20 on Bridge1 - there's still ok.
But when I add VLAN20 to Bridge2, RB is unavailable on these two ports.

Sorry about my English.

It does not work even if I put my vlan on ether1 or 2.
I want to get the old way tagged vlan20 on ports ether1,2,3 ... n (before master port1 and slave ether2,3, ... n)
Bridge strip Taging. I have DHCP server for vlan20.

It works great on chip switch Atheros 8227.
Simplified Example:
/interface bridge
add name=bridge1
add name=bridge2
add name=bridge3
/interface vlan
add interface=bridge1 name=vlan20 vlan-id=20
add interface=bridge1 name=vlan30 vlan-id=30
/interface bridge port
add bridge=bridge1 interface=ether1
add bridge=bridge1 interface=ether3
add bridge=bridge1 interface=ether2
add bridge=bridge2 interface=vlan20
add bridge=bridge3 interface=vlan30

Will there be shift to new syntax also for CRS125 series? It is a bit confusing to have to use different syntax for each product to get things done ...

+1, one would hope it continues to move towards a singular syntax for VLAN configuration and let MikroTik ninja's translate that as needed in middleware into any fidgety model specific configuration options.

Agree, need to be more simple, no offense but the Cisco way it very simple
Switch port mode trunk/access
Switch port access vlan x
Switch port trunk allow vlan x,y,z

Grickos, just put your vlan interfaces at bridge1 and add bridge1 to tagged ports in

I have worked with HP: very simple vlan setup, Cisco: simple VLAN and others
On Mikrotik I have still not used VLAN, since I have problem to understand how it works.
Its way to complicated.

Vlan is Hard to understand IF you used HP as they use the term tag/untagged (Their Ports are all hybrid and can't be trunk or access from the cisco perpspective.)

AccessPort = A port that is only accepting untaged frames on ingress and only output untaged frames on egress. All other frametypes is silently droped
TrunkPort = A port that only accepts tagged frames, all untaged frames is silently droped. it only egress taged frames.

Other have then invented shortcuts of that:

Hybrid = A port that accept both taged and untaged frames on ingress, untaged frames are assumed to belong to a native vlan. the same vlan can even recieve frames taged as beloning to it. Egres a hybrid port outputs as a trunk on all vlans and as an access port on the native vlan.

HP's implementation of only hybrid have stirred quit a few it guys in the field. The cisco way is cleaner and less error prone.

This is a Mikrotik forum and I who claims to understand .1q or qinq or qinqinqinq for one loves the freedom in mikrotik bridge being software layer, switch being hardware layer or at least I assume. Here i'm am currently not sure due to 6.41rc work.... but that will clear when it's done.

- ipv6 - fixed IPv6 address request from pool (introduced in 6.41rc1);
RB2011UAS v6.41rc1 - rc20
IPv6 address assignment is broken :-( State is 'invalid'
Just for INFO:
MikroTik have managed to reproduce the problem. The error only occurs with me and a few others. MikroTik are working on it. But I fear this will remain an eternal bug.
:wink: I can live with the router not to reboot.

Since 6.41rc13 the DHCPv6 client has no more prefix. The IPv6 address could therefore not be assigned manually. Since 6.41rc20 gets the DHCPv6 client again a prefix which I then manually assigned.

I can not test the feature with the dynamic subprefix.
- Ippool6 - try to assign the requested prefix for client if prefix is not being already used;

Edit:
Damn, I'm stupid! I wanted to answer, do not edit. The forum is unfortunately not in the wayback machine so I can reverse that again. Sorry.

It should be like this ... (if your vlans 20 and 30 are on ether2):
/interface bridge
add name=bridge1
add name=bridge2
add name=bridge3
/interface vlan
add interface=ether2 name=vlan20 vlan-id=20
add interface=ether2 name=vlan30 vlan-id=30
/interface bridge port
add bridge=bridge1 interface=ether1
add bridge=bridge1 interface=ether3
add bridge=bridge2 interface=vlan20
add bridge=bridge3 interface=vlan30

On CRS125 VLANs still have to be configured in "/interface ethernet switch" menu to keep hw-offload working. If they are configured in "/interface bridge vlan", the hw-offload will turn off.
Beginners question: I am not using VLANs on CRS125, but was using masterport. Can I still use this masterport functionality? Or I need to go via VLANs now, to get hardware switching?!

Thanks.

JimmyNyholm, a Cisco trunk port will pass both tagged or untagged traffic depending on the allowed VLAN list assigned to the trunk port (by default all VLANs are allowed). This is the "hybrid" behavior you're describing. Leaving the native VLAN routable on trunks is what exposes people to double tagging VLAN hop methods for what it's worth.

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Sun Jul 30, 2017 6:07 am

The VLAN does not work on the Atheros 8327 chip switch.
I create Bridge1 and add Ethernet1 and Ethernet2.
I'm creating VLAN20 on Bridge1 - there's still ok.
But when I add VLAN20 to Bridge2, RB is unavailable on these two ports.

Sorry about my English.
Grickos, I've not used VLANs in that fashion in any configurations. Looking at the new bridges I have been creating a single bridge and I add the interfaces as bridge ports. I also add all VLANs to this central bridge and adjust ports for tagged or an untagged VLAN as needed. I wouldn't expect two bridges to share information regarding the same VLAN without another bridge to glue them together.

Running the command:
/export
Hardware I tested against:
  • RouterBOARD 750G r3
  • RouterBOARD wAP G-5HacT2HnD
  • RouterBOARD cAP L-2nD
The result I see in the print-out:
#error exporting /system routerboard mode-button
I'm pretty sure it's benign but just thought I'd post it.

Idlemind: you are right when talking to later 802.1q adaptations from cisco side. switchport mode trunk will still only accept taged frames on ingress (leaning back from the isl days before 802.q was ratified). You have to tell it to process untagged frames as well and that command is only available after certain version of the ios. We do agree upon that this will make even ciscos implementation leaning to hybrid.
My writing was to open up peoples mind to the idea of what is happening ingress and egress of a switchport, and to set some acronyms. To many techs think vlan is difficult when it's actually not just with the right mindset.

never connect vlan 0 from different vendors, never use spanning tree. Allways know what you are doing. ;-)

Ahh, ISL has been removed in the newer IOS XE based switching lines and you no longer have to express which encapsulation method you want to use.

I would disagree with you. I haven't been bit by the spanning-tree devil and am a firm proponent in it's use. It's definitely a best practice to use spanning-tree in switched networks. It will layer appropriately on top of other redundancy technologies like port-channels as well as protect you from loops.

Like you finished with though, knowing how to use the tool is critical. Spanning-tree with it's many variants and implementations can be difficult to master but it's absolutely essential for any portion of a network that's switched. I'll take slow (fast honestly with RSTP/MSTP) automated failover of my links any day of the week.

What's new in 6.41rc4 (2017-Jul-28 06:48):

Important note!!! Backup before upgrade!
RouterOS (v6.40rc36-rc40 and) v6.41rc1+ contains new bridge implementation that supports hardware offloading (hw-offload).
This update will convert all interface "master-port" configuration into new bridge configuration, and eliminate "master-port" option as such.
Bridge will handle all Layer2 forwarding and the use of switch-chip (hw-offload) will be automatically turned on based on appropriate conditions.
The rest of RouterOS Switch specific configuration remains untouched in usual menus for now.
Please, note that downgrading to previous RouterOS versions will not restore "master-port" configuration, so use backups to restore configuration on downgrade.


Before an upgrade:
1) Remember to make backup/export files before an upgrade and save them on another storage device;
2) Make sure the device will not lose power during upgrade process;
3) Device has enough free storage space for all RouterOS packages to be downloaded.

Changes since previous 6.41rc release:

!) bridge - implemented software based vlan-aware bridges;
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:I ... _Filtering
!) switch - "master-port" conversion into a bridge with hardware offload "hw" option (CLI only);
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:S ... Offloading
!) bridge - general development of hw-offload bridge implementation (introduced in v6.40rc36);
*) bridge - show "admin-mac" only if "auto-mac=no";
*) rb922 - restored missing wireless interface on some boards;

If you experience version related issues, then please send supout file from your router to support@mikrotik.com. File must be generated while router is not working as suspected or after crash.

What's new in 6.41rc3 (2017-Jul-26 09:32):
*) ippool6 - try to assign desired prefix for client if prefix is not being already used;
Strods, this is implemented in the IPv6 pool code now but it doesn't seem to be implemented in the address assignment code yet, correct?
[admin@rtr1] > ipv6 address add    
address  advertise  comment  copy-from  disabled  eui-64  from-pool  no-dad  interface
I'm hoping we'll be getting an option to like "pref-prefix" where we can hint what prefix we'd like. Think a prefix of 11 for VLAN11 when getting a /56 assignment from the ISP for that networks /64. Ensuring devices remain some semblance of consistent IPs and keep us administrators sane.

Same issue on RouterBoard 2011. Also "Run After" appears to be broken too,it will not load exported .rsc file. Mikrotik ends up rebooting with no config at all.

We have tested a freshly configured Hap AC with 6.41rc4 and getting large amounts of Radar detect in Regulatory domain.

Accespoint is only usable in super channel mode.

We are in a bank building so no actual radar here ;-)

Available for debugging.
We manage 50+ corporate wifi networks in the Netherlands using Mikrotik & Cloudcore equipment.

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Tue Aug 01, 2017 11:47 pm

*) ippool6 - try to assign desired prefix for client if prefix is not being already used;
So how do I use this feature?

Suppose my pool prefix is 2001:db8:abcd::/48 and I wish to assign subprefix 1234::1/64 from this pool onto interface ether1. How do I enter this?
Suppose further that I wish to define this in such a way that if the prefix changes in the future that I don't need to change anything in the router.
I.e. if tomorrow, my dhcpv6-client receives pool 2001:db8:4567::/48, then ether1 should change automatically:
from 2001:db8:abcd:1234::1/64
to 2001:db8:4567:1234::1/64

Or does this feature only apply to dhcpv6 PD server?
When given a spoon,
you should not cling to your fork.
The soup will get cold.

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Wed Aug 02, 2017 8:42 pm

*) ippool6 - try to assign desired prefix for client if prefix is not being already used;
So how do I use this feature?

Suppose my pool prefix is 2001:db8:abcd::/48 and I wish to assign subprefix 1234::1/64 from this pool onto interface ether1. How do I enter this?
Suppose further that I wish to define this in such a way that if the prefix changes in the future that I don't need to change anything in the router.
I get a new dynamic IPv6 prefix every time from my ISP after each reconnect or after 26 hours. (with IPv6-DHCP-Client)
Adding ::1/64 to this dynamic IPv6 prefix runs here over 4 years. A subprefix abcd::1/64, I have not yet tested. I will try the days. (If 'IPv6 address request from pool' is fixed in the rc version)

This works, the dynamic prefix is added automatically:
/ipv6 address> add address=::1/64 from-pool=ISP-pool-ipv6 interface=bridge-local advertise=yes

2001:db8:abcd::1/64
2001:db8:0123::1/64
2001:db8:4567::1/64

Everyone who is experiencing issues with DHCPv6 client - we will have a potential fix for this problem in next 6.41rc version. Please test it when it comes available and report to support@mikrotik.com with results. If fix will help, then we will also include in upcoming current versions.

What's new in 6.41rc9 (2017-Aug-03 12:02):

Important note!!! Backup before upgrade!
RouterOS (v6.40rc36-rc40 and) v6.41rc1+ contains new bridge implementation that supports hardware offloading (hw-offload).
This update will convert all interface "master-port" configuration into new bridge configuration, and eliminate "master-port" option as such.
Bridge will handle all Layer2 forwarding and the use of switch-chip (hw-offload) will be automatically turned on based on appropriate conditions.
The rest of RouterOS Switch specific configuration remains untouched in usual menus for now.
Please, note that downgrading to previous RouterOS versions will not restore "master-port" configuration, so use backups to restore configuration on downgrade.


Before an upgrade:
1) Remember to make backup/export files before an upgrade and save them on another storage device;
2) Make sure the device will not lose power during upgrade process;
3) Device has enough free storage space for all RouterOS packages to be downloaded.

Changes since previous 6.41rc release:

*) certificate - fixed SCEP "get" request URL encoding;
*) dhcpv6-client - fixed IA evaluation order;
*) l2tp-server - fixed PPP services becoming unresponsive after changes on L2TP server with IPSec configuration;
*) lcd - fixed LCD blinking on RB2011 (introduced in 6.40);
*) lte - added initial passthrough support for wAP LTE;
*) pppoe-client - fixed wrong auto MRU detection over VLAN interfaces;
*) pppoe-server - fixed situation when PPPoE servers become invalid after reboot;
*) sfp - fixed invalid temperature readings when ambient temperature is below 0C;

If you experience version related issues, then please send supout file from your router to support@mikrotik.com. File must be generated while router is not working as suspected or after crash.

heaven - Please send supout file to support@mikrotik.com. Generate it while PPPoE client is not working. We have tested it locally and in general PPPoE client is working as suspected. There must be something very specific.

Reseting router with /system reset-configuration is the same as /system reset-configuration no-defaults option. So no defaults loaded on boot.

I have an issue with 6.41.rc9 on RB751G-2HnD.

After upgrade from channel=current 6.40 there is no interface pppoe-client created.
Even if I add this manualy, it wont connect to the DSL BRAS.
Seems that something is wrong with Link Control Protocol.

Log debug below:
14:17:45 pppoe,ppp,debug netia: LCP lowerdown
14:17:45 pppoe,ppp,debug netia: LCP down event in initial state
14:17:45 pppoe,ppp,info netia: disconnected
14:17:55 pppoe,ppp,info netia: initializing...
14:17:55 pppoe,ppp,info netia: connecting...
14:18:05 pppoe,ppp,info netia: terminating... - disconnected
Downgrading to 6.40.1 everything goes back to operational.

Working on a new RB750Gr3 (hex). I installed 6.41rc9 and I'm unable to get an access port working for a VLAN on the new VLAN aware bridges. A similar configuration is working on a RB750Gr3 running 6,41rc6.

A packet capture shows STP frames and discovery frames from the relevant VLAN interface, in this case br-vlan11, but does not seem to forward other traffic. I'm unable to mac-telnet into the router despite allowing it on the br1-vlan11 interface. I cannot ping the IP address assigned to br-vlan11 despite seeing it in the CDP message in WireShark (both interface and IP).

*) ipsec - allow to specify remote peer address as DNS name (CLI only);
*) ipsec - renamed "firewall" argument to "notrack-chain" in peer configuration;
*) led - fixed "modem-signal" LEDs (introduced in 6.40);

does this mean ipsec tunnels can be established between 2 sites with dynamic ip addresses, so I can get rid of the additional L2TP Tunnel?

PPPoE Client problem that I was wrote earlier is not solved in new RC. The Mikrotik support in mail was promised to me that it was been solved in future new rc((((
P.S. don' t use remote upgrade. pppoe client will not start automatically. After upgrade need to turnoff/turnon pppoe physical interface. Than pppoe client will work.

Hi all,

The LED issue on the SXT LTE is still not fixed in 6.41.rc11 but it is getting a little closer...
The LED's on the back of the SXT LTE now respond to signal strength but the scale is off. Without moving our bench SXT LTE device, it shows 3-4 LEDs of signal whilst running 6.39.2. Post upgrade to 6.41.rc11 the LEDs only show 2 bars and it does not fluctuate when the signal is either improved or degraded with any significance.
The webfig interface graphs are also still broken. The graph scale is between -40 and -120 dB but eh signal is being metered in 65xxx figures. Chupaka previously noted in the 6.40 release notes that this is probably due to using the wrong DWORD in the code?

Over to you MikroTik ;-)

Many thanks

Pete.

New bridge with VLANs still appears broken on my test RB750Gr3 for anything later than 6.41rc6. I can't seem to get NetInstall to work on Windows 10 to try jumping backwards to 6.41rc6 to confirm 100% that is the case. I'm holding off upgrading a production RB750Gr3 past 6.41rc6 where a similar configuration is working without issue.

Packets are received on an interface at the Ethernet level and I can see the counters increment. I do not see it increase the counters on the VLAN interface though.
/interface bridge vlan add bridge=br1 untagged=eth2 vlan-ids=11
/interface vlan add add interface=br1 name=br1-vlan11 vlan-id=11
/interface bridge port add bridge=br1 hw=no interface=eth2 pvid=11
/ip address add interface=br-vlan11 address=10.214.11.254/24

[quote="manyyy"]I have an issue with 6.41.rc9 on RB751G-2HnD.

I have similar problem with PPPoE on RB751G-2HnD with
6.41rc11. Even after reboot the PPPoE link does not activate.
I reconfigured it manually. Still did not work.

I tried unplugging and replugging the Ethernet cable
and the link sprang into life, so it's partially solved.

make a new plain text file with contents:

Save this file with name test.auto.rsc

Then upload it with SFTP. Check what your identity name is now.

Yes, with the SFTP client of my computer. But I thought it could be possible to transfer files between MikroTik routers with a native sftp client or with a new fetch mode=sftp.

So, if I rename the 6.41rc6 .npk file to 6.41rc6.auto.npk and upload it a RouterBoard it will reboot into 6.41rc6?

Hello

after upgrade they desapear.
pppoe-client configs disappear after upgrade.
It also invalidates the firewall and NAT configs because the interface has disappeared.

I reinstall the pppoe-client config and try enabling pppoe-client.
I monitor the interface but nothing happens.
I unplug and re-insert the Ethernet lead and the pppoe-out1 interface springs into life.

All this is on RB751G-2HnD

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Sat Aug 12, 2017 6:58 pm

make a new plain text file with contents:
/system identity set name=ITWORKS
Save this file with name test.auto.rsc

Then upload it with SFTP. Check what your identity name is now.
So, if I rename the 6.41rc6 .npk file to 6.41rc6.auto.npk and upload it a RouterBoard it will reboot into 6.41rc6?
So, it works for newer versions but not older versions. MikroTik please make it so you can downgrade RouterOS through this mechanic. If necessary make it a boolean value in the /ip service sftp settings to toggle allow/disallow software downgrades.

on the older versions this works just with ftp.
but there's nothing a consecutive sftp and ssh cannot fix, right :-)

scp yourcommandfile.rsc admin@router:
ssh admin@router '/import file-name=yourcommandfile.rsc; /file remove [find where name="yourcommandfile.rsc"]'

the only thing you lose is the output log.

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Tue Aug 15, 2017 6:13 pm

To be clear I was talking only about uploading a .npk file to the device for the purpose of installing a different version of RouterOS.

It allows you to upgrade (newer code) but not downgrade (older code). As an example you can up to 6.41rc11 by uploading the code file. Once in that version you cannot upload 6.41rc7. You only get a syslog message saying it's an older version.

I'm looking for a way without netinstall to allow that action.

sorry.
put your npk files on the /file section, then do a
[bat@hgw2] /ip firewall nat> /sys package downgrade
it will ask for confirmation on reload, and then install whatever version you have on the files, so yes it is the way you downgrade your OS.
i hope i got it right this time.

What's new in 6.41rc13 (2017-Aug-15 13:09):

Important note!!! Backup before upgrade!
RouterOS (v6.40rc36-rc40 and) v6.41rc1+ contains new bridge implementation that supports hardware offloading (hw-offload).
This update will convert all interface "master-port" configuration into new bridge configuration, and eliminate "master-port" option as such.
Bridge will handle all Layer2 forwarding and the use of switch-chip (hw-offload) will be automatically turned on based on appropriate conditions.
The rest of RouterOS Switch specific configuration remains untouched in usual menus for now.
Please, note that downgrading to previous RouterOS versions will not restore "master-port" configuration, so use backups to restore configuration on downgrade.


Before an upgrade:
1) Remember to make backup/export files before an upgrade and save them on another storage device;
2) Make sure the device will not lose power during upgrade process;
3) Device has enough free storage space for all RouterOS packages to be downloaded.

Changes since previous 6.41rc release:

*) bridge - added initial support for hardware "igmp-snooping" on CRS1xx/2xx (CLI only);
*) bridge - implemented software based "igmp-snooping" (CLI only);
*) bridge - removed "master-port" parameter (CLI only);
*) certificate - fixed import of certificates with empty SKID;
*) dhcp - require DHCP option name to be unique;
*) dhcpv6-client - ignore unknown IA;
*) hotspot - fixed missing "/ip hotspost server profile" if invalid "dns-name" was specified;
*) interface - added option to join and exclude "/interface list" from one and another;
*) lte - improved FastPath support for SXT LTE;
*) lte - added multi APN passthrough support for wAP LTE;
*) lte - do not show USB LTE modem under "/port" menu (introduced in 6.41rc);
*) lte - improved reliability of USB LTE modems;
*) lte - properly recognize USB devices under "/system resource usb" (introduced in 6.41rc12);
*) rb750gr3 - show warning and do not allow to use "protected-bootloader" feature if "factory-firmware" older than 3.34.4 version;

If you experience version related issues, then please send supout file from your router to support@mikrotik.com. File must be generated while router is not working as suspected or after crash.

I am having issues with CAPsMAN on 6.41rc13... Looks like cap interfaces with CAPsMAN forwarding do not pass any traffic.

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Wed Aug 16, 2017 5:42 pm

6.41rc11 -> 6.41rc13 broke my bridge on x86.
The bridge is still there, I can disable and enable it, but it registeres as "not ready" everywhere (firewall, ip...)
In an attempt to fix it, I've deleted the bridge and created a new one with default options and cleared bridge>settings, but the new bridge exhibits same behavior - "not ready" reported by ip, firewall, etc.
I've managed to nicely downgrade back to 6.41rc11 without any config changes, and it works just fine.

I've got a mipsbe test router that's configured almost identically, and that one upgraded nicely and no bridge problems (same bridge configuration as on x86 machine).
No need for help; just reporting an issue for your consideration ;-)

EDIT: I'm able to replicate the problem the x86 (CHR in my case) problem as well. IP address goes invalid as soon as it's added to a VLAN interface. That said, it works fine on my RB750Gr3 now.

A bridge. If br1 is the VLAN aware bridge the master interface of the VLAN is br1.

Thu Aug 17, 2017 10:46 pm

With the new bridge implementation using HW offload, will it be possible to use multiple bridges using the offload capability, effectively creating multiple "switch groups" that retain wire speed in the group? It's now possible to do something similar using VLANs where each VLAN has a CPU port besides the physical ports. Would the new bridge implementation automatically create VLANs to provide such a setup?

After updating a RB922 with a Huawei ME909s-120 modem to 6.41RC16, the lte-interface doesn't switch in running mode. The status of the interface shows only one information: "Functionality == minimal", nothing else.
Is this a normal behavior in case of lte-passthrough or a bug?

I'm unable to mac-telnet into the router despite allowing it on the br1-vlan11 interface. I cannot ping the IP address assigned to br-vlan11 despite seeing it in the CDP message in WireShark (both interface and IP).

I am seeing something very similar on a CRS210-8G-2S+ switch... CDP/LLDP passes just fine... I even get ARP in the right VLAN(s), but no dice when sending from the neighboring device on the same VLAN.

What was the previos version where it worked? Enable the LTE logging topic and check the log file. What Firmware version you have fro the modem?

It is/was running perfect with 6.40.1 since it was released und before with 6.39.2. The Firmware of the modem is 11.617.06.00.00. To activate the logging is only with RC helpful, isn't it? I will try it once more in the evening.

It is/was running perfect with 6.40.1 since it was released und before with 6.39.2. The Firmware of the modem is 11.617.06.00.00. To activate the logging is only with RC helpful, isn't it? I will try it once more in the evening.
We tested and 909s-120 works with such firmware in RouterOS6.41rc16
Try to specify the init-delay in the System Routerboard settings to 9s and then reboot the board.
Also check if it works when you do a usb power reset option.

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Mon Aug 21, 2017 8:27 pm

I'm happy to see support for Sierra AirPrime 7750. That's a pretty old card. The MC7455 is the current "all US carrier / all US band" card.

Any chance it would be to difficult to add whatever parameters are necessary to support the MC7455? It would be the end all be all card for two or three years.

So, after a bit of testing the solution was, that I have to do a usb power reset over CLI. Over Winbox it doesn't work and after the next reboot I have to handle the same procedure. I think there is a problem with the USB-power-reset after reboot in 6.41RC16. After a downgrade to 6.40.1 everything works fine.
The passthrough itself was working as expectet, but I can't set it on a VLAN, only physical interfaces are supported. Would it be possible to support Vlan-interfaces too?

Have you tried to specify that init-delay?
What does it show in the log when you enable the lte logging?
It should support the Vlan interface as well - what error message did it show?

With 9 seconds init-delay the lte modem doesn't start. When the moden isn't running, I get no errors in the log. Only after a manual usb power reset it start working and also I can see messages in the log.
If I try to set a Vlan, there is no error message. But after a export I see that nothing has changed and sfp1 is still set for passthrough.
Today I will try it on my second device too.

I am having issues with CAPsMAN on 6.41rc13... Looks like cap interfaces with CAPsMAN forwarding do not pass any traffic.
The issue persists with 6.41rc16... Just downgraded to 6.41rc11 and wireless is up and running.

Bug with pppoe + ipv6 + dhcp6server + static

When static addresses are created in /ipv6 dhcp-server binding (server = all) it is placed in the pool (/ipv6 pool used) after the user disconnects the pppoe it is removed from the / ipv6 pool used, and after reconnection does not return the Address for /ipv6 pool used.

commands:

/ipv6 pool used print
/ipv6 dhcp-server binding make-static numbers=0
ipv6 dhcp-server binding set 0 server=all
/ipv6 pool used print
/ppp active remove 0
/ipv6 pool used print

Working on a new RB750Gr3 (hex). I installed 6.41rc9 and I'm unable to get an access port working for a VLAN on the new VLAN aware bridges. A similar configuration is working on a RB750Gr3 running 6,41rc6.

A packet capture shows STP frames and discovery frames from the relevant VLAN interface, in this case br-vlan11, but does not seem to forward other traffic. I'm unable to mac-telnet into the router despite allowing it on the br1-vlan11 interface. I cannot ping the IP address assigned to br-vlan11 despite seeing it in the CDP message in WireShark (both interface and IP).

I am seeing something very similar on a CRS210-8G-2S+ switch... CDP/LLDP passes just fine... I even get ARP in the right VLAN(s), but no dice when sending from the neighboring device on the same VLAN.
Turns out I missed adding the VLAN as tagged to my bridge in /interface bridge vlan

If you're already doing that check the docs. I remember a model or two of CRS was unsupported with the new bridges initially. I think they have it rectified now though

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

What's new in 6.41rc3 (2017-Jul-26 09:32):
*) ippool6 - try to assign desired prefix for client if prefix is not being already used;
@MikroTik - @strods

Multiple people have asked in this thread without a reply about this feature line. Specifically your users are requesting the ability to "hint" what they want to be assigned for both the network and host portion of an address. This can be seen in practice in OpenWRT as class hints (source: https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/uci/network6) for the network hinting portion.

I've also placed a support case for clarification. It is #2017082222001255.

Threads (will link as I dig them back out):

What's new in 6.41rc17 (2017-Aug-22 11:58):

Important note!!! Backup before upgrade!
RouterOS (v6.40rc36-rc40 and) v6.41rc1+ contains new bridge implementation that supports hardware offloading (hw-offload).
This update will convert all interface "master-port" configuration into new bridge configuration, and eliminate "master-port" option as such.
Bridge will handle all Layer2 forwarding and the use of switch-chip (hw-offload) will be automatically turned on based on appropriate conditions.
The rest of RouterOS Switch specific configuration remains untouched in usual menus for now.
Please, note that downgrading to previous RouterOS versions will not restore "master-port" configuration, so use backups to restore configuration on downgrade.


Before an upgrade:
1) Remember to make backup/export files before an upgrade and save them on another storage device;
2) Make sure the device will not lose power during upgrade process;
3) Device has enough free storage space for all RouterOS packages to be downloaded.

Changes since previous 6.41rc release:

*) bridge - fixed "R" state for bridge interfaces on x86 and CHR installations (introduced in v6.41rc12);
*) capsman - added "vlan-mode=no-tag" option;
*) ipsec - added DH groups 19, 20 and 21 support for phase1 and phase2 (CLI only);
*) ipsec - allow to specify "remote-peer" address as DNS name;
*) lcd - fixed unresponsive LCD (introduced in v6.41rc15);
*) lte - added Passthrough support (CLI only);
*) pppoe - fixed invalid PPPoE server or client after reboot or "interface" edit (introduced in v6.41rc9);
*) snmp - fixed bridge host requests on devices with multiple bridge interfaces;
*) winbox - added possibility to define "comment" for "/routing bgp network" entries;
*) winbox - do not show LCD menu for devices which does not have it;
*) www - fixed unresponsive Web services (introduced in v6.40);

If you experience version related issues, then please send supout file from your router to support@mikrotik.com. File must be generated while router is not working as suspected or after crash.

I am having issues with CAPsMAN on 6.41rc13... Looks like cap interfaces with CAPsMAN forwarding do not pass any traffic.
The issue persists with 6.41rc16... Just downgraded to 6.41rc11 and wireless is up and running.
Please provide us more info on your setup and how to reproduce the problem as we tested locally and the CAPsMAN forwarding is working.

Currently SXT LTE does not support this functionality.

If you see the same changelog entry in multiple rc versions then it is a new feature which is being implemented and changelog entry is simply moved up on each rc when additional work on it has been done.

i thought that fix applied to my case too ( pppoe interfaces disappears after reboot/upgrade)

but never mind, i just saw answer (Ticket#2017080722001328) on my mail.

Hallo!
It is/was running perfect with 6.40.1 since it was released und before with 6.39.2. The Firmware of the modem is 11.617.06.00.00. To activate the logging is only with RC helpful, isn't it? I will try it once more in the evening.
We tested and 909s-120 works with such firmware in RouterOS6.41rc16
Try to specify the init-delay in the System Routerboard settings to 9s and then reboot the board.
Also check if it works when you do a usb power reset option.
So, after a bit of testing the solution was, that I have to do a usb power reset over CLI. Over Winbox it doesn't work and after the next reboot I have to handle the same procedure. I think there is a problem with the USB-power-reset after reboot in 6.41RC16. After a downgrade to 6.40.1 everything works fine.
The passthrough itself was working as expectet, but I can't set it on a VLAN, only physical interfaces are supported. Would it be possible to support Vlan-interfaces too?
Have you tried to specify that init-delay?
What does it show in the log when you enable the lte logging?
It should support the Vlan interface as well - what error message did it show?

With RC17 I was able to set a Vlan for passthrough but the LTE-Modem doesn't start with 0,3,6 and 9 seconds init-delay. Also a total power-reset with a duration of more than 1 minute, didn't solve the problem. After a munual usb power-reset with a duration of 1 second, the LTE-interface starts. Tested with 2 RB922UAGS-5HPacT (current Firmware 3,41) with Huawei ME909s-120. With 3.40.1 or older I never had such problems (init-delay 1s)

Thu Aug 24, 2017 12:19 pm

We've bought several CRS326 for our network expansion plan, as we had no major issues with MT routers. As I see the future is the new offloaded bridge feature, so I tried the RC line as the 6.41 will be probably released before these switches become prod.

As for switching between ports, they work, this bridge configuration looks more comfortable than the old switch menu (which i unfamiliar).
But no mater how i tried I couldn't bring up packages to the "router", and couldn't find any pointers how should i do that. How can i create a vlan interface, for example management purpose.

*) ipv6 - add dynamic "/ip dns" server address from RA when RA is permitted by configuration;
*) log - optimized "poe-out" logging topic logs;
*) lte - added Passthrough support (CLI only);
*) poe-out - fixed router reboot after "poe-out-status" changes;
*) userman - fixed "limitation" and "profile-limitation" update;
*) webfig - allow to open table entry even if table is not sorted by # (introduced in v6.40);
*) webfig - allow to unset "rate-limit" for DHCP leases;

What's new in 6.41rc18 (2017-Aug-24 07:52):

*) ipv6 - add dynamic "/ip dns" server address from RA when RA is permitted by configuration;
Almost there, now allow us to control the DNS server distributed in RA to enable our IPv6 clients to use the local MikroTik resolver cache.

Add an option to /ipv6 nd to specify the DNS servers!

*) ipsec - allow to specify remote peer address as DNS name (CLI only);
does this mean ipsec tunnels can be established between 2 sites with dynamic ip addresses, so I can get rid of the additional L2TP Tunnel?
In road warrior setups, yes.
I tried that setup, mikrotik routers on both ends. Router 1 uses a dns-name as peer address, router 2 is set to 0.0.0.0/0. If I don't want to use any tunneling, I still have to specify the SA Dst. Address in router 1's policy-action. Are there plans to also make the use of dns-names possible in SA Address fields of policies?

Thanks,

BuzzDee

I am having issues with CAPsMAN on 6.41rc13... Looks like cap interfaces with CAPsMAN forwarding do not pass any traffic.
The issue persists with 6.41rc16... Just downgraded to 6.41rc11 and wireless is up and running.
Please provide us more info on your setup and how to reproduce the problem as we tested locally and the CAPsMAN forwarding is working.
Opened Ticket#2017082822000816 with more details.

Hallo!
It is/was running perfect with 6.40.1 since it was released und before with 6.39.2. The Firmware of the modem is 11.617.06.00.00. To activate the logging is only with RC helpful, isn't it? I will try it once more in the evening.
We tested and 909s-120 works with such firmware in RouterOS6.41rc16
Try to specify the init-delay in the System Routerboard settings to 9s and then reboot the board.
Also check if it works when you do a usb power reset option.
So, after a bit of testing the solution was, that I have to do a usb power reset over CLI. Over Winbox it doesn't work and after the next reboot I have to handle the same procedure. I think there is a problem with the USB-power-reset after reboot in 6.41RC16. After a downgrade to 6.40.1 everything works fine.
The passthrough itself was working as expectet, but I can't set it on a VLAN, only physical interfaces are supported. Would it be possible to support Vlan-interfaces too?
Have you tried to specify that init-delay?
What does it show in the log when you enable the lte logging?
It should support the Vlan interface as well - what error message did it show?

With RC17 I was able to set a Vlan for passthrough but the LTE-Modem doesn't start with 0,3,6 and 9 seconds init-delay. Also a total power-reset with a duration of more than 1 minute, didn't solve the problem. After a munual usb power-reset with a duration of 1 second, the LTE-interface starts. Tested with 2 RB922UAGS-5HPacT (current Firmware 3,41) with Huawei ME909s-120. With 3.40.1 or older I never had such problems (init-delay 1s)
Could you make a support output file after the reboot when the interface doesn't work and send that to support@mikrotik.com?
The problem also happens when you are not using the passthrough mode?

I've been to testing IGMP-Snooping using ROS 6.41 rc18, and have found the multicast device (and group) I'm listening to seems to time out after about 5 minutes. I was working just fine up till then with a correct entry in the "Bridge MDB" section. Do you think that rc18 has a multicast time-out issue? Seems to work just fine other than that. :-)

Hallo Uldis!

I have sent you the support.rif.
At the moment I have fixed it with a script after startup an a delay of 10s (It was disabled for the support-file).
Yes, the problem is still there without passthrough.

What's new in 6.41rc20 (2017-Aug-29 06:41):

Important note!!! Backup before upgrade!
RouterOS (v6.40rc36-rc40 and) v6.41rc1+ contains new bridge implementation that supports hardware offloading (hw-offload).
This update will convert all interface "master-port" configuration into new bridge configuration, and eliminate "master-port" option as such.
Bridge will handle all Layer2 forwarding and the use of switch-chip (hw-offload) will be automatically turned on based on appropriate conditions.
The rest of RouterOS Switch specific configuration remains untouched in usual menus for now.
Please, note that downgrading to previous RouterOS versions will not restore "master-port" configuration, so use backups to restore configuration on downgrade.


Before an upgrade:
1) Remember to make backup/export files before an upgrade and save them on another storage device;
2) Make sure the device will not lose power during upgrade process;
3) Device has enough free storage space for all RouterOS packages to be downloaded.

Changes since previous 6.41rc release:

!) bridge - implemented software based vlan-aware bridges;
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:I ... _Filtering
!) switch - "master-port" conversion into a bridge with hardware offload "hw" option;
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:S ... Offloading
!) bridge - general development of hw-offload bridge implementation (introduced in v6.40rc36);
*) bridge - added initial support for hardware "igmp-snooping" on CRS1xx/2xx;
*) bridge - fixed "fast-forward" counters;
*) bridge - implemented software based "igmp-snooping";
*) bridge - implemented software based MSTP;
*) bridge - removed "master-port" parameter;
*) dhcpv6 client - added IAID check in reply;
*) dhcpv6-client - fixed IA check on solicit when "raoud-commit" is enabled;
*) dhcpv6-server - do not release address of static binding from pool after server removal;
*) export - fixed export for PoE-OUT related settings;
*) ipsec - kill PH1 on "mode-config" address failure;
*) led - fixed RB711UA ether1 LED (introduced in v6.38rc16);
*) lte - added Passthrough support (CLI only);
*) lte - integrated IP address acquisition without DHCP client for wAP LTE kit-US;
*) userman - fixed "limitation" and "profile-limitation" update;
*) userman - fixed CoA packet processing after changes in "/tool user-manager router" configuration;

So how is this new bridge HW offload supposed to work?I upgraded my WAP AC and than I printed my bridges after upgrade and they all say hw=no, tried creating new bridge, still says no.
Also I see there is new option Bridge Fast forward, what does it do?I tried ticking it again i see no differences anywhere regarding CPU load or anything else.

Yes the wiki needs it documented formally! In the meantime:

Add your VLAN interfaces and set their interface as your bridge. Apply your IP and DHCP servers to the VLAN interfaces. Then go into /interface bridge vlan and add your VLANs and be sure to tag the bridge interface.

So it would look something like this if you were to make a brand new bridge, add VLANs 11 and 12 (10.99.11.0/24 and 10.99.12.0/24), create a VLAN 11 access port on ether2, create a VLAN 12 access port on ether3 and a trunk on ether4 with VLAN 1 as the native VLAN and allow VLANs 11 and 12 to be tagged.
/interface bridge add vlan-filtering=no name=br1

/interface vlan add interface=br1 vlan-id=11 name=br1-vlan11
/interface vlan add interface=br1 vlan-id=12 name=br1-vlan12

/ip address add interface=br-vlan11 address=10.99.11.254/24
/ip address add interface=br-vlan11 address=10.99.12.254/24

/interface bridge vlan add bridge=br1 vlan-ids=11 tagged=br1,ether4 untagged=ether2
/interface bridge vlan add bridge=br1 vlan-ids=12 tagged=br1,ether4 untagged=ether3

/interface bridge port add bridge=br1 interface=ether2 pvid=11 frame-types=admit-only-untagged-and-priority-tagged
/interface bridge port add bridge=br1 interface=ether3 pvid=12 frame-types=admit-only-untagged-and-priority-tagged
/interface bridge port add bridge=br1 interface=ether4 pvid=1 frame-types=admit-all

/interface bridge set [ find where name=br1 ] vlan-filtering=yes
Ker-blamo, you have a 2 VLAN network with an access port in each and a trunk port on ether4 to uplink to your network.

Strods, is the CRS1xx/2xx now able to do the new bridge based VLANs without mucking around in the Ethernet switch menu? I know in the first releases it was indicated by MikroTik posts that this was required at the time. I don't own one of these types of devices so I can't test myself but I do see posts in other threads and would like to be able to help those users if possible and be as consistent as possible in my advice. I do love the new bridge implementation so far though. Good work.

Also I see there is new option Bridge Fast forward, what does it do?
That is a special case of bridge FastPath that only works when you have exactly two interfaces in a bridge. My understanding is that this option has nothing to do with bridge HW offloading. And it's not that new, it first appeared in 6.39.

v6.41rc20 has some really cool stuff. I'm still having a problem with IGMP-Snooping where it drops an ACTIVE multicast group (after about 4-5 Min.). I'm not sure why it is doing this and to remedy it, I have to deactivate IGMP-Snooping and redeploy PIM (v6.40.2). I can't seem to find the ability to list the "Master Port" under Interface/Ethernet anymore. This might have been on purpose, just asking. I believe you folks are coming along nicely on IGMP-Snooping though it needs some tweaks (time will tell, right?). Would the ability to "Query" for IGMP Groups help in my case? Just spit-balling there.. :-)

Thanks,

- ipv6 - fixed IPv6 address request from pool (introduced in 6.41rc1);

RB2011UAS v6.41rc1 - rc20
IPv6 address assignment is broken :-( State is 'invalid'


Just for INFO:
MikroTik have managed to reproduce the problem. The error only occurs with me and a few others. MikroTik are working on it. But I fear this will remain an eternal bug.
:wink: I can live with the router not to reboot.

Since 6.41rc13 the DHCPv6 client has no more prefix. The IPv6 address could therefore not be assigned manually. Since 6.41rc20 gets the DHCPv6 client again a prefix which I then manually assigned.

I can not test the feature with the dynamic subprefix.
- Ippool6 - try to assign the requested prefix for client if prefix is not being already used;

Patrick, the new bridge automatically toggles HW support as you enable or disable features. This doesn't require you to manually switch between /interface Ethernet switch and /interface bridge when your feature need changes or you work on different models of hardware.

https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:S ... Offloading

If you scroll down you'll see a table of each switches capabilities. Depending on which product you have you'll only get certain capabilities.

It's important to note that regardless of switch chip / hardware offloading, layer 3 interactions like inter-vlan routing have always been performed in CPU (per a MikroTik support case I opened).

I believe that the new implementation inside bridge of tag and tag was very simple to understand,
but for compatibility and understanding issues could be created dynamic interfaces VLAN and bridges for tagging or untagging vlans into interfaces menu

I'm aware of that. VLAN aware bridges disables HW offload on small switches (RB750GL etc). I'd like to have routing (this will be in CPU) AND switching (in hardware) on the same device as it was possible before 6.41rc. STP is needed too. I don't see a way how to solve this.

If the underlying hardware supports it I imagine the new bridge implementation will catch up. Just watch the release notes for updates.

InterVLAN routing with CRS326 (ROS 6.41rc20) works well.
I have a setup like this:
- ether1 (routed, DHCP client, Internet access)
- other ports in a bridge, separated to two different vlans (ID:2,3)
- each vlan has DHCP-Server, address etc.

I see poor bandwidth (max 25-40Mbps) between host connected to any inside vlan and Internet. Do you guys have same issue?
Ports are working in offload mode, hosts on same vlan can communicate wirespeed, with few precentage of CPU usage, which shows me that hw-offload is working well.

Is it a known problem?

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Fri Sep 01, 2017 4:23 pm

I tried to upgrade a lab CRS-226-24P-2S+ from 6.40.1 to 6.41.rc18 and had major issues.

The switch is set up as a simple dumb switch, no vlans except the default and all ports switched. After the upgrade I had no IP connectivity to the switch and no connectivity through the switch. The switch was emitting LLDP since the upstream switch (also a CRS226 running 6.40.1) was showing it in the neighbors list but that's it. No mac-telnet either. Hooked up serial port and looked at the config. It "looked" correct (I have a supout which I'll send to support).

Now here's where the fun starts...
The switches are connected via SFP+ direct attach cables. After the upgrade, I lost connectivity to the UPSTREAM switch.
If I unplug the direct attach cable between the 2 switches, I get connectivity back to the upstream switch.
If I plug it back in again, I lose it. If I plug it in and change the bridge protocol on the upgraded switch to "none", I get connectivity back to the upstream switch but still no connectivity to the upgraded switch. After about an hour of playing with different settings, I decided to reset the config on the upgraded switch thinking that maybe the conversion process had an issue. No help.

Finally I did a reset with no default config and set the switch up manually by creating the bridge and adding the ports. YAY! It worked...
Except, I still have an SFP problem, but different. I no longer lose connectivity to the upstream switch but I still can't pass any traffic to the upgraded switch via that SFP port. With the 2 switches connected via ether1, no problem (I should have tried that earlier actually). Also, a Quanta 10G switch that's downstream from the upgraded switch is fine using the upgraded switch's SFP ports.

HMMM. As I'm typing this, I just heard the upgraded switch beep and sure enough, it's rebooting.

Anyway, I'm actually going to downgrade the switch back to 6.40.1 and retry the upgrade again to see if the connectivity issue was solely related to the SFP port or whether there was really a problem with the converted or default config.

Unfortunately, currently SXT LTE does not support passthrough mode.
irghost - What is the question about SXT LTE? Are you referring to Passthrough support? if you do, then take a look at this list:
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Supporte ... and_modems
Is there a plan for this or even and ETA? SXT LTE is the ultimate platform to get this feature.

v6.41rc20 has some really cool stuff. I'm still having a problem with IGMP-Snooping where it drops an ACTIVE multicast group (after about 4-5 Min.). I'm not sure why it is doing this and to remedy it, I have to deactivate IGMP-Snooping and redeploy PIM (v6.40.2). I can't seem to find the ability to list the "Master Port" under Interface/Ethernet anymore. This might have been on purpose, just asking. I believe you folks are coming along nicely on IGMP-Snooping though it needs some tweaks (time will tell, right?). Would the ability to "Query" for IGMP Groups help in my case? Just spit-balling there.. :-)

Thanks,

Mon Sep 04, 2017 2:45 pm

What's new in 6.41rc23 (2017-Sep-04 09:07):

Important note!!! Backup before upgrade!
RouterOS (v6.40rc36-rc40 and) v6.41rc1+ contains new bridge implementation that supports hardware offloading (hw-offload).
This update will convert all interface "master-port" configuration into new bridge configuration, and eliminate "master-port" option as such.
Bridge will handle all Layer2 forwarding and the use of switch-chip (hw-offload) will be automatically turned on based on appropriate conditions.
The rest of RouterOS Switch specific configuration remains untouched in usual menus for now.
Please, note that downgrading to previous RouterOS versions will not restore "master-port" configuration, so use backups to restore configuration on downgrade.


Before an upgrade:
1) Remember to make backup/export files before an upgrade and save them on another storage device;
2) Make sure the device will not lose power during upgrade process;
3) Device has enough free storage space for all RouterOS packages to be downloaded.

Changes since previous 6.41rc release:

*) address - show warning on IPv6 address when acquire from pool has failed;
*) bridge - fixed connectivity issues when there are multiple VLAN interfaces on bridge;
*) bridge - show bridge interface local addresses in the host table;
*) crs317 - added initial support for HW offloaded MPLS forwarding;
*) dhcp - fixed DHCP services failing after reboot when DHCP option was used;
*) dhcpv4-client - allow to use DUID for client ID;
*) dhcpv6-client - require pool name to be unique;
*) routerboard - fixed "/system routerboard upgrade" for CRS212-8G-4S;

If you experience version related issues, then please send supout file from your router to support@mikrotik.com. File must be generated while router is not working as suspected or after crash.

.
I gave the new rc a go because of the multiple VLAN option, however after upgrading from the previous rc21 now the link is not stable anymore.
Every few minutes the link goes down and comes up again (from the mikrotik log).
Other than the new rc no changes were made to hardware [mikrotik hAP ac, RB962UiGS-5HacT2HnT] or settings. (same config etc)

Config used is blank, one bridge using all ports no vlans configured, dhcp-client on bridge interface, no firewall rules

DANGER

If you are running CAPSMAN avoid 6.41rc23

6.41rc23 breaks CAP communication with CAPSMAN, at least when using a tunelled datapath. Downgrading to 6.41rc20 does not fix the problem :(

Mikrotik support are aware of this issue.

You can download prior versions of the RC by manually adjusting the URL from the download page if you wanted to revert back to an RC that it still works at for you to retain the new bridge.

How are you connecting the CAP to the CAPsMAN? Are you using Local-forwarding or CAPsMAN forwarding? Are you using VLAN in our setup?

There is bug that after the downgrade from the newest RC you need to do a soft reboot of the board as the dhcp-client doesn't start in the first boot. Powercycle will not help, you need to do a sift reboot.

Hi Uldis, it is Layer3 with CAPsMAN forwarding.

Even downgrading to the previously working 6.41rc20 through Package/Downgrade, the problem still remains :(

Well, it doesn't matter what older version I used. I downgraded and then "telnet-mac" into the access point to add an dhcp-client interface which took ~ 30 seconds to be added. After a reboot the access points worked again (I went back to 6.40.3).

Can you elaborate on this feature? It applies solely when acting as a transit P router or when encapsulating/decapsulating l2circuit also?

P.S. Congrats on the work to implement multicast snooping. Looking forward to a stable release.

Your answer and Wiki is ambiguous:
Saying It's not supported and it can not be done due to hardware limitations.
OR
It is currently not supported, it can be done but we have not yet made a decision If or When?.

Thanks for the elaboration.

Looking at the SXT LTE device it is the perfect fit for this function. We will buy many more of these units when this is available.

Got my first Batch of CRS317-1G-16S+ 's unpacking the first and trying out this test version.

Connected Copper (1g) and startet winbox clearing conf. Looking around and tried to change l2mtu.

/interface ethernet set l2mtu=10000 numbers=1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15

Boom ether1 stoped working (interface nr 0) the switch rebooted and didn't let me in again over winbox.
serialport connect reset conf and back in buissnesss.

I did notice that ether1 is connected to the same switch chip (swtich1) and perhaps this is the wrong way to change mtu. But at the same if I want 10K frames on the sfpports and no switch connectivity to the ether1 how is this accomplished with the new implementation. is there a manual for this new implementation or some pointers to get our heads round to test it properly..

What's new in 6.41rc26 (2017-Sep-07 13:26):
*) crs317 - added initial support for HW offloaded MPLS forwarding;
Is this gona be not bridged intefaces can hardware switch depending on label but ldp is running on ip so one would have to configure ip adresses and a routing protocol say ospf to get routes that would be hardware switched on labels without cpu. the cpu would only run routing protocol and ldp and the hardware chip would switch/route incoming mpls packes according to ldp. being a router no l2 domain but doing it true switching on ldp labels... Like the big guys....
Is this Initial something that works now in cli or is it the first door and something to be enabled later in the rc branch.

What's new in 6.41rc30 (2017-Sep-15 11:50):

Important note!!! Backup before upgrade!
RouterOS (v6.40rc36-rc40 and) v6.41rc1+ contains new bridge implementation that supports hardware offloading (hw-offload).
This update will convert all interface "master-port" configuration into new bridge configuration, and eliminate "master-port" option as such.
Bridge will handle all Layer2 forwarding and the use of switch-chip (hw-offload) will be automatically turned on based on appropriate conditions.
The rest of RouterOS Switch specific configuration remains untouched in usual menus for now.
Please, note that downgrading to previous RouterOS versions will not restore "master-port" configuration, so use backups to restore configuration on downgrade.


Before an upgrade:
1) Remember to make backup/export files before an upgrade and save them on another storage device;
2) Make sure the device will not lose power during upgrade process;
3) Device has enough free storage space for all RouterOS packages to be downloaded.

Changes since previous 6.41rc release:

*) crs317 - added L2MTU support;
*) crs326 - fixed packet processing speed on switch chip if individual port link speed differs;
*) crs3xx - added port ingress and egress rate limiting;
*) export - fixed wireless "ssid" and "supplicant-identity" compact export;
*) ppp - fixed situation when part of PPP configuration was reset to default values after reboot;
*) wireless - added "allow-signal-out-of-range" option for Access List entries (CLI only);

If you experience version related issues, then please send supout file from your router to support@mikrotik.com. File must be generated while router is not working as suspected or after crash.

added "allow-signal-out-off-range" option
should be 'out of range' or 'off-range', but not both, I think :)

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Mon Sep 18, 2017 4:12 pm

Just tested CRS326-24G-2S+ on 6.41rc30
- started from clean config (reset w/o default)
- simple config: all port in a bridge, RSTP active
- ip dhcp client on bridge interface
- set identity and users

Reboot >> device dead

Via console I see the device is booting correctly >> startup services >> login (and after 1 sec) >> System rebooting (but the board stuck there w/o rebooting).
Note: the ether1 was the only cable plugged in and the led was off.

I was not able to create a supout (too fast in locking down); netinstall to 6.40.3 and we are in business again

Sure, as soon as possible I'll try to redo the same setup.
Now I remember that I also changed default MACs on etherXX interfaces and set admin-MAC on bridge one.

Interesting how fast some options appear compared to others, cough useful IPv6 changes.

Yes, I'm heckling you because well it's apparently needed.

Side-note: It seems the pace is slowing on this RC. I imagine this means we'll be seeing 6.41rc moving to GA and 6.42 started? Will we see a general theme targeted in this next cycle like we say with the new bridge implementation?

I can't, I have over 400 RB with USB LTE MODEM in production and the RC version has STP bridge bugs. While it is not stable I can wait another year :lol:

Tue Sep 19, 2017 7:11 pm

Just to be on the safe side. Running CRS317-1G-16+ On the 6.41rc30 looking in switch menu there is no ports and no switch is that correct?
The New implementation is doing "switchy stuff" in bridge section but should I make switch settings in switch section and does that work when Ros doesn't find any chip or ports in this menu.

Where does the Dynamic Vlan of 3501 come from?
This bridge1 port is this the routeros entry point? (ie: if I add Ip adtress or vlan interface in interface section?)
bridge1 doesn't need to be in a vlan for that vlan to forward frames to the member ports?.

Why do I ask this silly questions... because I'm experiencing strange behaviour. And the Wiki is utterly outdated on this developing area and there is no other source for this kind of information.

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Tue Sep 19, 2017 8:47 pm

Wiki has been updated. The links are in the thread. I think it's under interface bridge.

You are correct. The switch menu is a thing of the past. It is all done via the new HW offload VLAN aware bridge.

This provides a single consistent way to use RouterOS and it manages leveraging underlying hardware dynamically. This is visible by the H flag in interface bridge port.

Now let's go to school. A VLAN is a layer 2 technology like a switch. Therefore a VLAN interface is not required for a bridge to forward a frame. The switch simply has to know which ports are a member of that VLAN and whether it should traffic tagged or untagged on that port.

A VLAN interface is a way to perform routing for traffic on a VLAN in RouterOS.

A VLAN interface should have it's master interface set to the bridge interface.

The bridges VLAN and port tables are where you manage which ports transmit tagged and untagged frames on which ports. A dynamic entry is sourced from an entry in one table that's not present in another. This could be seen by placing a bridge ports PVID in a VLAN not present in the VLAN table. A dynamic entry is created in the VLAN table to express that.

By the way, maybe it's possible to add an action (probably to Bridge DST-NAT - it's suitable, according to Packet Flow diagram) to set/unset VLAN tag on the packet (to do kind of MAC-based/protocol-based VLAN)?

...bridge1 doesn't need to be in a vlan for that vlan to forward frames to the member ports?.
It didn't work for me until I added the bridge1 itself to the tagged ports list.

I have temporarily setup hAP lite (RB941-2nD) as a VLAN aware switch which forwards both untagged and tagged (vlan=100) frames. I didn't do anything in the "Switch" menu. The configuration was done in the "Bridge" menu only:
1) Added ether1, ether2, ether3 and ether4 as member ports for bridge1 in "Bridge" -> "Ports" and for each member port I set pvid=1 and frame-types=admit-all
interface bridge port 
add interface=ether1 bridge=bridge1 pvid=1 frame-types=admit-all hw=yes
add interface=ether2 bridge=bridge1 pvid=1 frame-types=admit-all hw=yes
add interface=ether3 bridge=bridge1 pvid=1 frame-types=admit-all hw=yes
add interface=ether4 bridge=bridge1 pvid=1 frame-types=admit-all hw=yes
2) In the "Bridge" -> "VLANs" made all members ports aware of vlan 100 tagged frames (including bridge1 itself).
interface bridge vlan add bridge=bridge1 vlan-ids=100 tagged=bridge1,ether1,ether2,ether3,ether4 untagged=""
3) Enabled VLAN Filtering for bridge1 in the "Bridge" -> "Bridge" menu.
interface bridge set bridge1 vlan-filtering=yes pvid=1
4) [optional] Added vlan100 interface to the bridge1 to be able to manage the router from that VLAN.

What's new in 6.41rc31 (2017-Sep-20 06:56):

Important note!!! Backup before upgrade!
RouterOS (v6.40rc36-rc40 and) v6.41rc1+ contains new bridge implementation that supports hardware offloading (hw-offload).
This update will convert all interface "master-port" configuration into new bridge configuration, and eliminate "master-port" option as such.
Bridge will handle all Layer2 forwarding and the use of switch-chip (hw-offload) will be automatically turned on based on appropriate conditions.
The rest of RouterOS Switch specific configuration remains untouched in usual menus for now.
Please, note that downgrading to previous RouterOS versions will not restore "master-port" configuration, so use backups to restore configuration on downgrade.


Before an upgrade:
1) Remember to make backup/export files before an upgrade and save them on another storage device;
2) Make sure the device will not lose power during upgrade process;
3) Device has enough free storage space for all RouterOS packages to be downloaded.

Changes since previous 6.41rc release:

*) crs317 - added initial support for HW offloaded MPLS forwarding;
*) lte - added "/interface lte apn" menu (Passthrough requires reconfiguration) (CLI only);
*) lte - added Passthrough support (CLI only);
*) lte - added support for ZTE ME3630 E1C with additional "/port" for GPS usage;
*) lte - automatically add "/ip dhcp-client" configuration on interface;
*) lte - changed default values to "add-default-route=yes", "use-peer-dns=yes" and "default-route-distance=2";
*) ppp - fixed serial port loading (introduced in v6.41rc);
*) sfp - fixed temperature readings for various SFP modules;
*) snmp - fixed "/system license" parameters for CHR;
*) wireless - improved reliability on "rx-rate" selection process;

If you experience version related issues, then please send supout file from your router to support@mikrotik.com. File must be generated while router is not working as suspected or after crash.

strods, are we looking feature complete for 6.41 yet? I'm just curious if it's down to polishing and bug fixes or if there's more that's intending to be added.

I know I'm not the only one very eager for it.

one thing that i've never understood about mikrotik is why they add new features to RC.there should be testing or beta channel, rc channel (feature locked), stable(bugfix), mainline(current)

this would make far more sense

One thing that I've never understood about MikroTik is why they add new features to the RC. There should be testing or beta channel, rc channel (feature locked), stable(bugfix), and mainline(current).
Which is why I won't touch updates with a 10 foot pole.

Mmmmm hacker bait. :)

This is just a naming convention, you just have to get used to it.

In any case, please do NOT pollute this thread with the naming convention nonsense again. If you feel like you are in absolutely need to discuss, here is one of the many threads to reply to: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=123032.

to you its a naming convention, but the rc are often very "alpha status", and rc can be misleading to new users who by norm perceive that rc's are "generally stable". why do you think cheeze asked if its down to polishing and bugfixes? its because rc naming convention makes it confusing for some users. no one would have to question if rc actually meant rc, alpha meant alpha, beta meant beta, and then we won't be having this discussion.

and thanks to polluted nonsense or not, we finally received MSTP after so many years, have you forgotten, mr forum police?

Just updated a CRS125 test unit to 6.41rc31 (from 6.40.3); firmware upgrade and master-port-TO-new-bridge config auto-conversion went smoothly.
NOTE: CRS125 config has custom MAC addresses set for all interfaces and this has not compromised upgrade/conversion, on CRS326 instead custom MAC addresses can be set but IMHO the device hang at first reboot (pay attention).

We are aware of this, but in RouterOS world, "stable" is the only version you should use in important locations where you don't want new features. We update this branch rarely and only after long and rigorous testing. Current is more like RC (current = running release), and RC is more like Beta or "nightly build" in Windows land.

The previous switch settings supported MAC learning limits:
/interface ethernet switch port
set ether6 learn-limit=1
set ether7 learn-limit=1
Is this feature still available with the new bridge implementation?

Not as faar as I can se for the moment..
And while we speak of it would it be Possible to add this to the new implementation and possibly enhance it with ie: learn-limit=1 learn-clear-at-interface-down=no learn-replace-after-inactivity=15min
and or even cooler lear-radius-auth=yes (with all the magic options as answer properties in the radius answer

What's new in 6.41rc32 (2017-Sep-21 13:51):

Important note!!! Backup before upgrade!
RouterOS (v6.40rc36-rc40 and) v6.41rc1+ contains new bridge implementation that supports hardware offloading (hw-offload).
This update will convert all interface "master-port" configuration into new bridge configuration, and eliminate "master-port" option as such.
Bridge will handle all Layer2 forwarding and the use of switch-chip (hw-offload) will be automatically turned on based on appropriate conditions.
The rest of RouterOS Switch specific configuration remains untouched in usual menus for now.
Please, note that downgrading to previous RouterOS versions will not restore "master-port" configuration, so use backups to restore configuration on downgrade.


Before an upgrade:
1) Remember to make backup/export files before an upgrade and save them on another storage device;
2) Make sure the device will not lose power during upgrade process;
3) Device has enough free storage space for all RouterOS packages to be downloaded.

Changes since previous 6.41rc release:

!) bridge - general development of hw-offload bridge implementation (introduced in v6.40rc36);
*) bridge - added initial support for hardware "igmp-snooping" on CRS1xx/2xx;
*) bridge - implemented software based "igmp-snooping";
*) console - do not stop "/certificate sign" process if console times out in 1 minute;
*) lte - added "/interface lte apn" menu (Passthrough requires reconfiguration) (CLI only);
*) traceroute - improved "/tool traceroute" results processing;
*) wireless - log "signal-strength" when successfully connected to AP;

If you experience version related issues, then please send supout file from your router to support@mikrotik.com. File must be generated while router is not working as suspected or after crash.

With v6.41rc31 my LTE connection was very slow, max. 7-10mbit/s and high pings >200ms. Also the E3372 LTE modem (still) loses connection when downloading larger amounts of data (via Steam for example) so you have to reboot the RB.

Yes, please. Cisco calls a learned MAC on reboot sticky (I think). Replace after a timeout is good too.

The bridge will perform IGMP snooping in a way that requires the CPU to process to packets instead of customized and often accelerated (faster) hardware that is meant to do it at line-rate or near line-rate.

Probably should of phrased the question better... How to "correctly" configure software based IGMP-Snooping . :D

That might be extremely useful, if the data correlates to client's disconnecting around full power. We could point blame at something other than coverage.

This entry in changelog just means that there were some improvements in already implemented snooping.

What version you had before on your router where it was working ok?
I reverted back to 6.40.3 where speeds are normal, but that version too has the problem that the E3372 is unstable an looses LTE connection when there is some load. I hoped the latest RC would fix this...

Please contact support@mikrotik.com for more information (include the modem number and revision). Also check what lte band it uses when you have normal speed and when you have slow speed.

I am having issues with CAPsMAN on 6.41rc13... Looks like cap interfaces with CAPsMAN forwarding do not pass any traffic.
The issue persists with 6.41rc16... Just downgraded to 6.41rc11 and wireless is up and running.
Updated to 6.41rc32 and everything works as expected. I can not tell what intermediate version fixed the issue though.
Thanks Uldis!

I just put 6.41rc32 onto an RB2011UAS-2HnD and have a question.

The pre-upgrade configuration was with a bridge name=LAN with ports=ether2 and ether6, with those set as masters in the switch menu to ports ether3-5 and ether7-9 respectively.
ether1, ether10, and sfp1 were all stand-alone interfaces.

Long story short: after the upgrade, the bridge ports menu still only lists ether2 and ether6 as ports of the LAN bridge, but I am still able to reach the router from ether3 as if it were a member of the bridge. The bridge > hosts displays my laptop's MAC address on ether3 (correctly) but I can't see anything that would tell me ether3 should be bridged with ether2.

Am I missing something obvious that would show me ether3 as a member of the LAN bridge? (or as a member of some other hardware-accelerated bridge?)

I had a similar issue with a 951G. First boot with upgrade, was still able to connect from port 5. Rebooted one more time and lost connection until I switched to port 2.

Maybe the initial config needs one more reboot or switch reset to behave as expected.

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Wed Sep 27, 2017 9:03 am

Not sure if this is related to RC build or its a general problem for MikroTik

I have a RB941-2nD for testing. Upgraded to latest RC and its running fine.
Then I see that there are new firmware available. So I click the upgrade button.
RB tells me "Do you really want to upgrade the firmware?"
I click yes, and nothing more happens.
Firmware is still the same, no changes anywhere.
So I did go to Terminal and did try the same.
There I got this message: 07:56:59 echo: system,info,critical Firmware upgraded successfully, please reboot for changes to take effect!
Ahh, Its need a reboot!!

1. Remove the really, its telling me "are you really so stupid that you like to upgrade?", change to "Do you want to upgrade firmware"
2. Add information that reboot is needed after the web upgrade.

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Wed Sep 27, 2017 11:40 am

I might have hit a bug wrt. the bridge conversion.
hAP lite, RouterBOOT 3.41, RouterOS 6.40.
Device completely resetted, export only showed configuration of ether interfaces, nothing else (as intended).
ether1 not configured further, ether2 not configured further. ether3-4 configured with ether2 as master port.
My understanding is that the update to 6.41rc should create a HW offload bridge with ether2-5 in
It did create the bridge with a comment that this was created due to the upgrade, but that bridge contained no port at all.
Trivial to fix, but IMHO not as expected?

Wed Sep 27, 2017 2:33 pm

What's new in 6.41rc34 (2017-Sep-27 10:05):

Important note!!! Backup before upgrade!
RouterOS (v6.40rc36-rc40 and) v6.41rc1+ contains new bridge implementation that supports hardware offloading (hw-offload).
This update will convert all interface "master-port" configuration into new bridge configuration, and eliminate "master-port" option as such.
Bridge will handle all Layer2 forwarding and the use of switch-chip (hw-offload) will be automatically turned on based on appropriate conditions.
The rest of RouterOS Switch specific configuration remains untouched in usual menus for now.
Please, note that downgrading to previous RouterOS versions will not restore "master-port" configuration, so use backups to restore configuration on downgrade.


Before an upgrade:
1) Remember to make backup/export files before an upgrade and save them on another storage device;
2) Make sure the device will not lose power during upgrade process;
3) Device has enough free storage space for all RouterOS packages to be downloaded.

Changes since previous 6.41rc release:

*) crs3xx - improved packet processing in slowpath;
*) defconf - fixed RouterOS default configuration (introduced in v6.40.3);
*) ethernet - removed "master-port" parameter;
*) log - fixed "unknown" interface name in log messages;
*) lte - added "/interface lte apn" menu (Passthrough requires reconfiguration) (CLI only);
*) lte - do not reset modem when it is not possible to access SMS storage;
*) snmp - fixed "ifHighSpeed" value of VLAN, VRRP and Bonding interfaces;
*) snmp - fixed "/caps-man registration-table" uptime values;
*) tile - improved hardware encryption processes;
*) vlan - do not allow VLAN MTU to be higher than L2MTU;
*) wireless - fixed rate selection process when "rate-set=configured" and NV2 protocol is used;

If you experience version related issues, then please send supout file from your router to support@mikrotik.com. File must be generated while router is not working as suspected or after crash.

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Wed Sep 27, 2017 8:14 pm

Board: CRS326-24G-2S+
Previous ROS: 6.41rc32
Status: quite stable, all port in bridge w/ RSTP enabled and 2 active link to CRS125 (active/alternate)

Upgraded to 6.41rc34, every 3-5 minutes my laptop (direct patch cord to a CRS326 port) detects lost link; on a separate windows I've constant ping to my firewall and I can see ping fail (General Error = link down / no laptop eth conn). After some seconds link is back and ping go normal.

On 6.41rc32 (tested in the last 3 days) I've not seen any similar behaviour (and I've made no topology changes).
Now I've disabled RSTP (and removed redundant link to CRS125) and it'seems to be stable again (consider it's only 30 minutes now I'm testing this).

Even if these are lab equipments, I'm considering going back to 6.40.3 and stay there for some weeks ..probably this switch_2_bridge conversion is something which needs time to consolidate.
Some days ago I've netinstalled 2 time the CRS326 because it doesn't like MAC changes.

I've noticed one more thing (CRS326 - 6.41rc34 - RSTP now enabled):
>> keeping winbox logged to CRS326 the problem does not show up
>> closing winbox .. flapping starts

Hw. Offload
After reboot I have this in log...

hardware offloading activated on bridge "bridge1" ports: wlan1,ether3

But port wlan1 status is inactive and not Hw. Offload... Is is correct?

Not stating your board but from what I can tell wlan1 is a wlan interface right? this interface maybe is not connected in hardware to the same switch chip. Hence it's not hardware enabled. Look att the Block diagrams of your unit an you will se how it's built.

MikroTik can correct me on Monday but that's probably referring to the bridge level hardware offload feature or the port hw=yes setting. You can set it to yes regardless of it being a wlan or Ethernet interface.

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Mon Oct 02, 2017 3:56 am

Hi, we have a question about the new bridge / hw offloading implementation in CRS 317-1G-16S+

I have created 2 bridges: most ports added to bridge1, two ports added to bridge2.
Now I only see the H (or "Hw offload" checked) with the ports of bridge1.
Can you only have one bridge making use of hw offloading?
We have enabled "Fast forward" at the bridge level, and "Hardware offload" at the port level.

Thanks!

Upgraded CRS326-24G-2S+ to 6.41rc37 , after reboot in the log I've noticed all ports have been removed from bridge hw-offloading and re-inserted.
I've also noticed Firmware 3.43 was available for CRS326-24G-2S+ and I've upgraded it also and rebooted.

Now I've enabled RSTP again and I'm going to re-insert the redundant patch cord to CRS125 ..and see what happen now

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Mon Oct 02, 2017 6:36 pm

I decided to try the 6.41rc release on my new CRS326-24G-2S+.

Two notes..

1. Same with 6.40 release firmware, the LAN activity light on Port 1 RJ45 blinks on (appears to reflect activity on the bridge link?), which appears to be a bug (or is this a hardware fault I should return the unit for?)

2. I cannot set the MTU of the bridge (which replaced the old switch configuration) to support jumbo frames. (I can create a new bridge with high MTU, but get an error "Couldn't change Interface <bridge1> - could not set mtu (6)" when attempting to do so on the bridge with all my ports on.

The ports are all hardware offloaded. Do I need to set a high MTU on the bridge / interfaces within the bridge in order to be able to pass jumbo frames? (That is what I am trying to achieve).

Mon Oct 02, 2017 6:40 pm

It's been 4 hours and the CRS326-24G-2S+ (on 6.41rc37) is now beheaving well:
- RSTP now works stable between CRS326 and CRS125 (also on 6.41rc37)
- it's now possible to edit MAC addresses on CRS326 ethernet ports (and the device doesn't stuck on reboot)
- no port flapping (yet)

very curious about this:
*) wireless - improved WPA2 key exchange reliability;

Thank you for this fix!

I don't know how it was planned but noticed that it failed at 204 status code:
[admin@CHR] > /tool fetch url="http://httpstat.us/204"
  status: failed

action failed (6)

There actually is a bug with 204, we will address it. Your previous URL works with "curl -v" so it should work in Fetch too.

Hello Friends,

A small note, but very important for us that uses ALOT of vlans.

We're currently benching CRS317 and we're missing out the option to set notes/comments under /interface bridge vlan.

This is because we'll have alot of config here and since we're alot of people managing the same devices it's key to leave notes. :-)

Try this:
/in bridge port add interface=all
It's fun! (Spoiler alert - netinstall.exe) ;-)
But actually, this feature is really what I was waiting for for a long time. I just hope these interface lists will be available for "tagged" and "untagged" attributes in "/in br vlan" section !

If you see the same changelog entry in multiple rc versions then it is a new feature which is being implemented and changelog entry is simply moved up on each rc when additional work on it has been done.

Hello hapi,

DDM info seems quite good from SFP transceiver, why do you have auto-negotiation disabled and what is connected to opposite side? Have you tried to turn auto-negotiation=on?

oh my mistake, it is CRS326-24G-2S+. Modul not function on 10Gbit = auto-negotation is disable and force 1Gbit otherwise they will not join on fiber.

TX power still not show.

v6.41rc38

Jotne - Main idea of rc changelog is to see the difference between current and rc version. Think of an upgrade like you would upgrade from 6.40.4 to 6.41rc no from 6.41rc to 6.41rc.

Anyway, if you have more questions about changelog structure, then please create new forum topic about this or write to support@mikrotik.com

Main idea of this topic is to polish new features in 6.41rc version so that the version would become 6.41 (current) release.

..cut.. SFP transceiver, why do you have auto-negotiation disabled and what is connected to opposite side? Have you tried to turn auto-negotiation=on?
On RB3011 sfp to a CRS326-24G-2S+ via DAC cable doesn't work if you set auto-negotiation , furthermore the RB3011 doesn't detect if link go down (CRS instead correctly detects it).
All this on latest rc but also in previous 6.41rc and also 6.40.3/4

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Thu Oct 05, 2017 2:07 pm

Is it me or how do I search for learned mac-addresses with this new bridge implementation. Host table is almost always empty but local mac's but everything works.
This has been the same all this 41rc branch....

Is there a way to increase timeout on learning ( I have also asked for the option to disable learning or limit number of addresses learned.)

EDIT: Found all macs in /interfaces ethernet switch host

In this new implementation shouldn't these to tables be the same /bridge host and /interface ethernet switch host ???

In ROS this 6.41rc (38) branch with new bridge implementation with (H)ard ware flag. if I want to use switch chip's filter function.
is this rules applied to (I want the Silicon Hardware ones...)

/interface/bridge/filter
or
/interface/ethernet/switch/rule

Am I right to believe that the switch menu will go away completely and all stuff there will be moved/added to bridge menu. My concern is where we currently stand?

I am a bit lost on the direction and state of the new bridge implementation...
I use the switch on (mostly RB2011) routers fully configured with VLAN tagging, and with VLAN subinterfaces on the CPU port, like this:
/interface ethernet
set [ find default-name=ether3 ] master-port=ether2
set [ find default-name=ether4 ] master-port=ether2
set [ find default-name=ether5 ] master-port=ether2

/interface vlan
add interface=ether2 name=ether2.vlan12 vlan-id=12
add interface=ether2 name=ether2.vlan19 vlan-id=19
add interface=ether2 name=ether2.vlan20 vlan-id=20
add interface=ether2 name=ether2.vlan24 vlan-id=24
add interface=ether2 name=ether2.vlan44 vlan-id=44
add interface=ether2 name=ether2.vlan58 vlan-id=58

/interface ethernet switch port
set 2 vlan-mode=secure
set 3 vlan-mode=secure
set 4 default-vlan-id=58 vlan-header=always-strip vlan-mode=secure
set 5 default-vlan-id=58 vlan-header=always-strip vlan-mode=secure

/interface ethernet switch vlan
add independent-learning=no ports=switch1-cpu,ether2,ether3  switch=switch1 vlan-id=44
add independent-learning=no ports=switch1-cpu,ether2,ether3,ether4,ether5 switch=switch1 vlan-id=58
add independent-learning=no ports=switch1-cpu,ether2 switch=switch1 vlan-id=20
add independent-learning=no ports=switch1-cpu,ether3 switch=switch1 vlan-id=19
add independent-learning=no ports=switch1-cpu,ether3 switch=switch1 vlan-id=12
add independent-learning=no ports=switch1-cpu,ether2 switch=switch1 vlan-id=24
What is the current state of the "switch to bridge" migration in 6.41rc? Is it going to convert such a configuration properly
and will it still work the same way? I.e. with hardware switching between the ports on tagged and untagged VLANs even
when some ports are tagged and others untagged in the same VLAN? And will it still drop traffic from VLAN tags not
configured for that port?

Good evening,

Same problem here...
And I think router os runs a little bit slow on that device.

Can't use proxy-arp fonctionality on bridge with new bridge implementation in 6.41rc, in fact, when we try to use ppptp tunnel with proxy-arp on bridge, host behind tunnel on lan can't ping. After a downgrade in 6.40.4 everything work well.

Hello, after upgrading RBwAPR-2nD & R11e-LTE to version 6.41rc38, I received a critical error after which the router has been permanently rebooting.

if you want a relative version older than that, you need to log in with a static IP address, quickly roll over the main package, and quickly downgrade, or use netsintall


p.s. firmware version : 3.39.

Does upgrade to firmware up to version 3.41, does the RC start up normally?

Can confirm this, same new WAP LTE constant reboots, Critical process died, etc in logs, works fine with older version.

What's new in 6.41rc44 (2017-Oct-11 08:21):

Important note!!! Backup before upgrade!
RouterOS (v6.40rc36-rc40 and) v6.41rc1+ contains new bridge implementation that supports hardware offloading (hw-offload).
This update will convert all interface "master-port" configuration into new bridge configuration, and eliminate "master-port" option as such.
Bridge will handle all Layer2 forwarding and the use of switch-chip (hw-offload) will be automatically turned on based on appropriate conditions.
The rest of RouterOS Switch specific configuration remains untouched in usual menus for now.
Please, note that downgrading to previous RouterOS versions will not restore "master-port" configuration, so use backups to restore configuration on downgrade.


Before an upgrade:
1) Remember to make backup/export files before an upgrade and save them on another storage device;
2) Make sure the device will not lose power during upgrade process;
3) Device has enough free storage space for all RouterOS packages to be downloaded.

Changes since previous 6.41rc release:

!) detnet - implemented "/interface detect-internet" feature;
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Detect_internet
*) bridge - added comment support for VLANs;
*) bridge - added support for "/interface list" as a bridge port;
*) crs317 - added initial support for HW offloaded MPLS forwarding;
*) crs3xx - fixed 100% CPU usage after interface related changes (introduced in v6.41rc31);
*) dhcpv4-client - add dynamic DHCP client for mobile clients which require it;
*) fetch - accept all HTTP 2xx status codes;
*) firewall - do not NAT address to 0.0.0.0 after reboot if to-address is used but not specified;
*) ike1 - fixed RSA authentication for Windows clients behind NAT;
*) interface - added default "/interface list" "dynamic" which contains dynamic interfaces;
*) interface - added option to join and exclude "/interface list" from one and another;
*) ipsec - added DH groups 19, 20 and 21 support for phase1 and phase2;
*) ipsec - fixed lost value for "remote-certificate" parameter after disable/enable;
*) ipsec - fixed policy enable/disable;
*) ipsec - improved reliability on certificate usage;
*) ipsec - skip invalid policies for phase2;
*) l2tp - improved reliability on packet processing in FastPath;
*) log - fixed interface name in log messages;
*) log - properly recognize MikroTik specific RADIUS attributes;
*) lte - added "/interface lte apn" menu (Passthrough requires reconfiguration);
*) lte - added Passthrough support (CLI only);
*) lte - fixed modem initialization after reboot;
*) lte - limited minimal default route distance to 1;
*) mac-server - use "/interface list" instead of interface name under MAC server settings;
*) neighbor - show neighbors on actual bridge port instead of bridge itself
*) sms - include timestamps in SMS delivery reports;
*) sms - properly initialize SMS storage;
*) snmp - show only available OIDs under "/system health print oid";
*) winbox - allow shorten bytes to k,M,G in Hotspot user limits;
*) winbox - do not show duplicate "Switch" menus for CRS326;
*) winbox - fixed "/certificate sign" process;
*) wireless - added "allow-signal-out-off-range" option for Access List entries;

If you experience version related issues, then please send supout file from your router to support@mikrotik.com. File must be generated while router is not working as suspected or after crash.

RouterOS (v6.40rc36-rc40 and) v6.41rc1+ contains new bridge implementation that supports hardware offloading (hw-offload).
This update will convert all interface "master-port" configuration into new bridge configuration, and eliminate "master-port" option as such.
What about configurations like mentioned in posting #275 in this topic? Are they supported now?

Fairly in depth post, to highlight a few things (community and strods correct me if I'm wrong).

The independent learning = no option doesn't exist anymore. You're going to get independent MAC databases per VLAN. I'm curious as to why you weren't doing that before, was it a hardware limitation?

Frame tagging exists in the implementation:
/interface bridge port set 0 frame-types=
FrameTypes ::= admit-all | admit-only-untagged-and-priority-tagged | admit-only-vlan-tagged
I'd argue that setting a PVID and "admit-only-untagged-and-priority-tagged" is better than VLAN mode secure and always-strip.

The rest of the configuration is just basic VLAN configuration which is well supported.

The only two points I personally can't speak for is how well the automatic conversion will go during the upgrade and the state of each of those features on the RB2011. I don't own that hardware.

Personally, I'd make sure I have a back-door after the upgrade. Maybe take a port out of the "switch-chip" by removing master-port and set it up as a routed interface that you can plug a laptop into and easily get access to the device. This also could be a WAN port, allow SSH to the device from your home or another office's IP so you can hop in that way if needed (or leave it open by src IP and use a good password / ssh key and come in via a mobile hotspot or starbucks). This would allow you to tweak the bridge config as needed.

Is this feature feature optional if someone does not want their router to contact cloud.mikrotik.com every minute?

Is it just cosmetic (ie: "this interface is 'WAN' just FYI") or is it actually used somewhere (ie: in firewall rules as an interface list) ?

Does in any way affect the functionality of other features in ROS?

Specifying our own host instead of 8.8.8.8 and cloud.mikrotik.com, may be usefully in the future.

My understanding is it will populate the interface lists you specify with the actual interfaces. Those lists can then be used in firewall filter, NAT, etc.

I'd also expect this feature to be used in the defconf, but we'd better wait for an official announcement.

Yes that would actually be cool IMHO.

I generally don't like features that 'call the vendor's home'. I prefer solutions that respect the user's privacy.

https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Detect_internet
Is the test IPv6 compliant. It needs to be. The address 8.8.8.8 is an IPv4 static, fail. The DNS name cloud.mikrotik.com only has an A record.

If you truly want to detect for Internet you need to use both IPv4 and IPv6 literals and a dual-stacked DNS name. We (the networking community) MUST NOT design features that are IPv4 only. The standards bodies have adopted an IPv6 first approach. I'm very sad to see this feature does not follow that stance. Some ISPs have already had to go to an IPv6 only design due to IPv4 exhaustion. Many others are doing layered IPv4 NAT (CGN) to provide psuedo IPv4 connectivity. (Look at the US cellular market). As a customer, this lack of market awareness is troubling. A feature that clearly targets home or small business routers should be IPv6 aware given the climate of connectivity.

As many forum members will likely state, this feature is of little value to them. It may find some play in the home router arena but even then it seems like overkill. I am curious as to how this test is valid. Packets sourced from my LAN IP all have access to 8.8.8.8 and cloud.mikrotik.com via the static default route and NAT rules. Does the special interface have coding that inspects the routing table?

All in all, seems like another case of MikroTik's roadmap being out of touch with actual customer needs. You don't drive sales by developing features that don't provide any value. You need to provide features that demonstrate how MikroTik routers can be used to develop solutions that create positive business outcomes. We can sell business outcomes to purchasers. Simplifying VLAN configuration and implementing RSTP and MSTP. Those are great examples of features that create value that can be translated into positive business outcomes.

The defconf already changed in version 6.40! It now uses the "WAN" interface list in the firewall instead of ether1.

Well that setting is not so important, I think. I probably unchecked it once because it would be like the switches I am accustomed with, and then just copied the same setting over and over.

/interface bridge port set 0 frame-types=
FrameTypes ::= admit-all | admit-only-untagged-and-priority-tagged | admit-only-vlan-tagged
I'd argue that setting a PVID and "admit-only-untagged-and-priority-tagged" is better than VLAN mode secure and always-strip.

The rest of the configuration is just basic VLAN configuration which is well supported.
Are you sure? I do not yet see the option to restrict certain tagged VLANs to certain ports. And what about tagging untagged frames with a certain VLAN tag?
My config does not use the untagged VLAN at the CPU port, but it does have untagged external ports. Those have to be in some VLAN.
Now, the switch easily manages that with the default-vlan-id=xx vlan-header=always-strip setting, but can the bridge do the same thing? And will it
be hardware accellerated? (I do not want traffic between an untagged port and the tagged VLAN with the same ID on another port to be CPU-bridged)
The only two points I personally can't speak for is how well the automatic conversion will go during the upgrade and the state of each of those features on the RB2011. I don't own that hardware.
Well it hopefully will not be very different between models that have a switch chip so I could do some experiments on a RB750.
Personally, I'd make sure I have a back-door after the upgrade. Maybe take a port out of the "switch-chip" by removing master-port and set it up as a routed interface that you can plug a laptop into and easily get access to the device.
Normally there is a local network with DHCP service on port 10 for emergency maintenance and of course these routers also have a serial port, but unfortunately they are located on sites all over the country that have limited access. We will clearly have to be very careful when updating to 6.41

After an upgrade from the previous rc38 to v6.41rc44 my mAP lite crashes when the ethernet cable is plugged in. First log entry after unplugging the cable states "router rebooted because some critical program crashed". Device is configured as a pocket router/AP and has one L2TP/IPsec and two ovpn clients.

After disabling the PPP clients I can connect ether1 without problems. When I now enable either one of the ovpn clients the device crashes some time after the connection is established. The L2TP/IPsec client gives no problem.

As for detect-interface feature. Please take a look at wiki page which was provided in changelog:
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:D ... figuration

"detect-interface-list (interface list; Default: none) All interfaces in the list will be monitored by Detect Internet"

As you can see - default value is none

Changing the hosts is not just useful, it's a requirement. Just imagine, you can DDoS cloud.mikrotik.com and every router using this feature goes offline!

Opposite, inject a route to 8.8.8.8 into a dynamic protocol running on someones environment that relies on this feature. It'll toggle the interface to WAN, apply security policies, likely dropping all traffic until detect-interface flaps back to LAN. Then it flaps to WAN when it relearns the route and flap and flap and flap.

Dumb feature.

It's like VTP, was great on the drawing board and then it was used to wipe peoples VLAN databases. It took a few years but now Cisco disavows that feature.

PVID = Default VLAN (Primary VLAN ID).

So you can accomplish an untagged port by changing the PVID of a bridge port to whatever VLAN ID you need. You also have the /interface bridge vlan table. In that table you specify which ports have a VLAN tagged or untagged. So like secure mode, you set admit-only-tagged-frames and then only add that bridge port to the VLANs tagged lists that you want.

As far as the acceleration goes, it is model dependent. The goal is to manage hardware offload based on the switch chips available features. I got that answer from MikroTik support. The translation is that if it can do it now in the switch chip it should do it in the future with HW offload on dynamically. How long it takes to get to that state for all models, well time will tell.

The master-port option is removed so you can't really use the old configurations. MikroTik has been tight lipped about which switch chips it has enabled HW offload for. None of my test gear (hex, wap ac and cap lite) are setup in a way that I'm seeing HW offload actually turned on yet for the Ethernet ports. That said I can still pull over 300mbps across VLANs on my hex. InterVLAN routing was and always will be CPU bound and I don't really have much traffic that hits the bridges, I used software bridges in the past because the switch chip in the hex is basically a single flat layer 2 domain (no vlans).

Without meaningful release notes that tell us when each switch chip is enabled for HW offload the only thing we know is that they are developing off of CRS3xx in house. The best thing might be to target a single location that uses a RB2011 or setup a lab RB2011 and monitor the RCs progress for your particular set of options so you know when that happens or cool your heals until 6.41 goes GA.

The magic is in the other settings:
[admin@211-rtr1] > interface detect-internet set 
Change properties of one or several items.

detect-interface-list -- 
internet-interface-list -- 
lan-interface-list -- 
wan-interface-list -- 
If you see the wiki the lists is what does the work, set Internet interface list to something like WAN, add all interfaces to the detect-interface-list and boom you have a problem. If the LAN interface is detected to be a WAN interface it can then be elevated to an Internet interface. I'd have to setup a lab but I'd imagine it's possible to do the necessary spoofing just with routing.

My understanding is detect-internet is aimed to be used on home-users' routers, which are definitely not supposed to be running any of the dynamic routing protocols (and are not by default). Honestly, I don't see anything wrong with it. Much better to have all ports protected, and treat some of them as WAN-facing (and others as LAN-facing) when certain criteria is met, than exposing your router to the DNS amplification attacks by simply adding PPPoE interface without also modifying the existing (default) firewall rules (a common problem that multiple people complained about up until recently).

Re: v6.41rc [release candidate] is released! New bridge implementation!

Wed Oct 11, 2017 7:20 pm

PVID = Default VLAN (Primary VLAN ID).

So you can accomplish an untagged port by changing the PVID of a bridge port to whatever VLAN ID you need. You also have the /interface bridge vlan table. In that table you specify which ports have a VLAN tagged or untagged. So like secure mode, you set admit-only-tagged-frames and then only add that bridge port to the VLANs tagged lists that you want.
Ok, that sounds good. From earlier discussion I got the impression that from now on the bridge would be one big VLAN-transparent thing, whereas in my existing practice (not the above example) I would normally put VLAN subinterfaces on ports and make the subinterfaces part of a bridge, rather than putting entire ports in the bridge and adding VLAN subinterfaces to the bridge.
However, with detailed VLAN configuration for bridge ports that could be a good solution.

I think I'll have to experiment with converting some setups on a test router...
