Port Forwarding

Well, port forwarding in RouterOS is way different then any other router I’ve used so far.  Tonight I’m hoping I have enough time to figure out what I did wrong so I can get the ports I need to forward forwarded out.

Mountain Bike Upgrades

Well,

I have started planning upgrades for my mountain bike.  Not going to be cheap but worth it in the end.  I want to convert from a 3×7 drivetrain to a 1×11 drivetrain, upgrade the fork, brake levers & grips.  My wishlist of parts is as follows below.  I don’t expect anyone to buy these parts for me, but I won’t be upset if someone does 😉

RouterOS

Been playing around with a RouterOS VM a bit at work (wanted to try out “The Dude” at work to see if I can use it).  I think converting from EdgeOS to RouterOS is going to be a bit of work, but I’ll pull a config file from my EdgeRouter-X and just get started.  I mean, its all I can really do 😉

Router switch

Well, my Ubiquiti EdgeRouter-X and UniFi AP Lite AC combo stopped working.  Picked up a TP-Link Archer C7 to get us through until I could troubleshoot the Ubiquiti gear, decided to replace them with a MikroTik hAP ac after reading that Ubiquiti gear likes to die after around 18 months.  Definitely not what I need at home.  Configuring the MikroTik will be more work for me then I’m used to, but performance should be as good as or better than the Ubiquiti combo.  I should also be able to keep the EdgeRouter-X around as a 5 port gigabit switch if I want to, powered by the hAP ac (it comes with a 24V wall wart and supports PoE out on port 5).  I’m hoping I can easily get IPv6 working on the hAP ac, since it was a PITA on my EdgeRouter-X.
