Mikrotik Necessities

 

The following are settings that are needed and or should be enabled on your Mikrotik Router.  The following does not need to be completed in any specific order.

1.  Enable Radius Logging on the Mikrotik

 

The benefits of this is that when an issue does appear, yourself and the DataTill team will be able to track and identify the issue faster and be able to assist.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2.  IP Services are active and enabled correctly


Make sure all needed IP services are active and enabled correctly.  Below is a list of items that needs to be set to active.

 

API This is for DataTill to connect.

3.  Enabled SNMP:

 

Please ensure that you SNMP is enabled.  Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a popular protocol for network management.  It is used for collecting information from and configuring, network devices, such as servers, printers, hubs, switches, and routers on an Internet Protocol (IP) network.

 

DataTill uses this to gain information about the device.

 

 

4.  Radius settings and Timeouts

 

Please ensure the correct ports are allowed and that the timeouts are set for Radius for Login.  You will need to enable the following

  • PPP
  • Login

 

Please set the following accordingly:

  • Authentication port:  1812
  • Accounting port:  1813
  • Time-out:  3000 ms

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5.  PPP Accounting Settings:


Please ensure that the PPP accounting is set to use “Accounting” and the Interval set to 00:05:00 as this allows the account updates to take place correctly.
