Mikrotik Queue is not Working

Category: IT in General — kamaruddin @ 1:11 pm

You’ve setup Mikrotik Routerboard and everything is working fine. Next, you setup queue, jotted IP range and addresses but it simply doesn’t work as it should, limiting the bandwith.

Disable fasttrack connection.
IP > Firewall > Filter

Fasttrack disabled

Fasttracked packets bypass firewall, connection tracking, simple queues, queue tree with parent=global, ip traffic-flow(restriction removed in 6.33), ip accounting, ipsec, hotspot universal client, vrf assignment, so it is up to administrator to make sure fasttrack does not interfere with other configuration…

Note to self:
VPN works in transport layer
SSH works in application layer

VPN: routes all traffic from all applications through tunnel
SSH: Have to configure each application to pass through tunnel
