In preparation for some IPv6 testing of our hotspot systems, I’ve come up with the following temporary authentication method for dual-stacked users.
Seeing as the login redirect goes via an IPv4 webserver, if enabled IPv6 traffic passes by the hotspot unhindered. This is my work on enabling the IPv6 side of things when a user logs in or out of the hotspot with a dual stacked client.
This has been implemented on my demo v4.10 router and tested with both Mac OS X 10.6 and Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Continue reading Mikrotik Hotspot Authentication for IPv6 dual-stacked clients
This is my ongoing work at using multiple ADSL services and the Mikrotik PCC rules along with some inbound mangling to allow a single router to load balance traffic across as many non bonded links as required.
Updated: 7th Jan 2010 – notes: added static routing marks for inbound traffic as inbound should never fall over to backup routes, while outbound should go over whatever is available. Also cleaned up routing order so it’s easier to read.
Note that none of this config requires the use of IP addresses at all, as it simply uses the pppoe-client interfaces and your lan interface to mark traffic. In my example wan1-pppoe,wan2-pppoe,wan3-pppoe are used and lan
