I have lots of installs of mt equipment (100+ units). ive noticed over the past 6 months that the mac-telnet tool rarely works any more. (from mikrotik to mikrotik). I can always mac-ping. but mac-telnet will ask for username and password then say connected, and then disconnected. (never shows splash screen)
its so bad ive had to go into all of my routers and RE-enable telnet and make sure they have an ip address so that i can connect one MT to another. (this does not apply to )
the only thing i can see is maybe ive upgraded several of my routers to ros5 and some are still 3.28 or 2.9.51 but that should not matter for mac-telnet. i have 3 different examples im looking at now, ip neighbor will mac-ping and i can telnet into BUT NO MAC-TELNET.
i cant in anyway rely on mac-telnet like i used to as its a great layer 2 tool.
anyone else seeing this?
i always have firewall input chain accept, but that does not affect it. is there a setting if i using a bridge that i have to set that is new? prior i could count on mac-telnet 100%. id often just power up a MT and connect it knowing once i got to office i could configure it via the other MTs on site. this is no longer the case.
