DHCP server won't start if pool on an additional interface IP

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

High UBNT team, thank you for good product!

I've just spent 2 hours to take DHCP server on ERL up, it has very simple but very unclean problem:

admin@ubnt# show interfaces 
 ethernet eth0 {
     address 192.168.1.1/24
     firewall {
         out {
             name LANtoWAN
         }
     }
     vif 1002 {
         address 192.168.10.194/26
         description KRAG_INET_UPLINK
         firewall {
             out {
                 name LANtoWAN
             }
         }
         mtu 1500
     }
 }
 ethernet eth1 {
     address 10.10.194.1/24
     address 10.14.21.1/24
     description NELSON_LAN
     firewall {
         in {
             name LANtoWAN
         }
     }
 }
 ethernet eth2 {
 }
 loopback lo {
 }
[edit]
admin@ubnt# show service    
dhcp-server  gui          ssh          
[edit]
admin@ubnt# show service dhcp-server 
 shared-network-name lan {
     subnet 10.10.194.0/24 {
         default-router 10.10.194.1
         dns-server 31.130.161.4
         dns-server 31.130.161.62
         start 10.10.194.150 {
             stop 10.10.194.199
         }
     }
 }
[edit]

 on eth1 i've 2 IP addresses from different networks, in DHCP server i've a one network defined where i need dynamic leases. In case when first ( "primary" ) IP adress is not in DHCP network - DHCP server simply will not start. So, the idea is - slightly change syntax of CLI and UI code to exactly define address as secondary:

....
ethernet eth1 {
     address 10.10.194.1/24
     address 10.14.21.1/24 secondary
     description NELSON_LAN
...

 

admin@ubnt# set interfaces ethernet eth1 10.14.21.1/24 secondary

or at least - configuration of DHCP in Web UI or in CLI should control interface settings and show a warning if it will take to situation like this. It could take off some head-ache i think.

Thank alot.

Redundant power supply on EdgeRouter Pro series

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Hi,

EdgeRouter Pro can and are often used as mission-critical routers in networks. It is a nice piece of hardware and the software make it a very viable alternative. It would be great to make the next generation of EdgeRouter Pro series power-redundant, so they can be connected to two power feeds at the same time.

This will help design fully-redundant networks, with both failure tolerance in case of one internal PSU failure as well as redundant and avoid SPoF design from a power perspective.

 

Many thanks and keep up the good work!

Better DNS GUI interface

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Manage DNS via GUI instead of CLI. Meaning I want the router to use OpenDNS, and I add it to the system DNS, however it still uses the DNS from my ISP, until I use CLI to tell it otherwise.

IGMP Forking

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

(Adding my list to the Feature Requests system)

This is a bit of an obscure one...

BT's multicast implmentation delivers internet over a PPPoE session while delivering Multicast over the raw Ethernet interface. The BT home gateway (HomeHub) forks the IGMP requests so it is sent up both interfaces, this is done so the BRAS is able to shape the PPPoE session down and eases congestion in the access network.
It would be nice to be able to do this with my ERL.

EdgeRouter: Display status of Static DHCP leases

On the Static MAC/IP Mapping tab please add a column that shows if a particular mapping is online/offline (up or down).

Being able to move a static DHCP definition from one DHCP server to another in the GUI

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

I'm always having to move static DHCP definitions from one interface to a different one.

Would be nice to be able to quickly move the device to a different interface and DHCP server with the GUI.

 

Currently it requires copying the mac address somewhere so you don't forget it. Deleting from the old server along with the name.  Then adding is all back to the new server on the new interface.  

 

In an office environment, this occurs when someone moves to a different location, etc. 

EdgeRouter boot/Reboot indicator

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Actually I own an EdgeRouter Lite (3 ports) and not knowing if the router have fully booted or rebooted is frustrating when your users are waiting for ACCESS TO INTERNET.

So, it would be great if there would be an indicator (CONSOLE LED Blinking) for the actual state of the boot as the following:
- Blinking while booting or rebooting.
- At the end of boot, it should remain Solid.

Any suggestions ?!

IPSec Site-to-Site / L2L VPN Status in Dashboard GUI

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

I'm wondering if there are any plans to show the status of IPSec site-to-site VPN tunnels anywhere in the GUI?
It would be really nice to see the status of a tunnel in the GUI - even if it was something simple like a traffic light icon with red for down, orange for establishing/retrying and green for up.

 

Ideally however, IPSec tunnels would be listed on the Dashboard along with the other interfaces so we could see the status of all the tunnels at a glance.

Something like this would be really sweet:

Add GUI to manage Multilink PPPoE (mlppp)

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

See https://community.ubnt.com/t5/EdgeMAX/setting-up-multilink/m-p/916376#M35797

 

We could stop buying PC-Engines (+VLAN switches) and Mikrotik gear *just* for MLPPP reasons.

We're a small boutique ISP; 200 customers, lots of mlppp going on here.

Real-time bandwidth usage graphs per IP/hostname

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

This is a feature I would really like to see implemented.

I have tried quite a few different linux distros for home SOHO router/firewall use, and one feature that really stood out for me when using smoothwall was the ability to be able to see real time graphs and stats (in the web browser) of different clients on the network

What this allowed me to do, was see which clients on the network are currently using the most amount of bandwidth and allow me to speak with them accordingly, if that makes sense?

One particular feature that would be cool that I have never seen, is the ability to graph the bandwidth usage as per above, but with the addition of the hostname (if it can be resolved) next to the IP address.

Imagine in a SOHO environment being able to jump on and see (in real time) where all of your precious bandwidth is going? Obviously this is WAN -> LAN, it would not have much other usage internally.

Anyone else want to see this?

Add NTP server

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

I'd really love to see an NTP server built into the EdgeMax router software. I currently syncronise my router to a Stratum 1 server and would like the ability to create a "local" Stratum 2 server for all client devices.

 

In addition, I'd love the option of a Radius server built into the router to handle 802.1X authentication without having to rely on a Windows server for such a basic task.

POE Switch with SNMP UPS Monitoring

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Was just thinking if this was possible on the Edgeswitch POE line and as far as i can see not Man Sad

 

So my idea was to have the switch shutdown some/all POE devices automatically when it senses power lost from a UPS.

  

I was thinking to shutdown some non-essential stuff during a power outage before the switch gets killed when the UPS batteries fully die (since it cant shutdown itself). This may help saving devices from bricking as well.

 

This could help prolong the battery runtime if not so many POE devices are running and therefore continue providing protection.

 

So for example, it could kill the outside cameras and all but 1 or 2 UAPs inside for people to still have access to the network from wireless devices or be able to make wifi calls if needed.

 

EDIT - Just thought of a security usage there too, say some robbers cut the power outside (and even smash cameras outside), the inside one could capture some data before it gets smashed/powered down as well in the event of a break-in! If the outside POE devices gets shutdown, then the cameras inside could hopefully get all the info the police would need.

Support DNSSEC

Most likely the best support and codebase to base it on would be unbound or powerdns-recursor, not dnsmasq.

MAC Address of EdgeRouter series available in GUI

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

My ISP (WISP) requires to manually input the MAC address of my router within the customer's online portal. It'd hardcoded I'm guessing for DHCP reservation? Regardless, I assumed the MAC address would have been easy to find within the GUI, but I was wrong or was looking in the wrong spot.

 

Please make MAC Address for each interface on the EdgeRouter products available in the GUI. Have it listed within the interface menu from Dashboard. It's a lot easier for some people to click on "config" for the interface and see the HWaddr for the interface vs. having to CLI or SSH into the router to run "ifconfig" from terminal. 

Static Route with the Next-Hop Dynamically Obtained via DHCP

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

In Cisco you can do something like this:

ip route 10.10.10.0 255.255.255.0 dhcp
ip route 10.10.20.1 255.255.255.255 ethernet 1 dhcp

It is rather handy/critical when you want to create configuration for multiple routers, where you dont know the next-hop yet, but you know that it is handed out by a DHCP. I do know that it is posible with a kind of script, but that just make it more complicated and harder to deploy/manage.

What I had in mind:

set protocols static interface-route <destination> next-hop-interface <interface> dhcp

Display IP address of openvpn vtun0 interface in dashboard

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

After creating a virtual interface for the openvpn client:

openvpn vtun0 (for example)

if you go to the UI Dashboard, even if the VPN is active and running, no IP address is displayed there.  It would be great to show the VPN IP here along side the LAN and WAN subnets/connections etc.

SIP ALG per NAT Rule - connection-tracking module sip

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Hi Friends,

 

I have come into a number of occasions whaere it would be a very helpful to be able to apply the SIP header transformations per nat rule instead of system-wide.

 

Our specific use case is when we want to utilize both SIP trunks (sip module enabled) and SIP endpoints (sip module disabled) behind one EdgeRouter. If we could do this per nat rule, I could disable for the masq rule that the endpoints use and enable it for the manual nat config for the SIP trunk.

 

The less awesome way may be to be able to enable/disable per interface somehow, but this sounds like it would get confusing and be less effective.

 

Thanks!

Hello EdgeOS team, im just have fill new ERL with static DHCP leases in CLI, and i have a new request, now static-mapping is defined in two steps at minimum:

edit service dhcp-server shared-network-name NETWORK_NAME subnet A.X.Y.Z/N

set static-mapping TEST ip-address 1.2.3.4

set static-mapping TEST mac-address aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff


Ideally if it will be oneliner like

set static-mapping TEST ip-address 1.2.3.4 mac-address aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff

 

Thank you

 

Load Balance Watchdog

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Hi

 

Is possible to send an email when any of the two interfaces fail andwhen available again? Something like a ping-watchdog to send mails when the status changes (reachable, not reachable).

 

For example, in case of failure:

   interface: eth1
   carrier: down
   status: inactive
   gateway: unknown

   ping gateway: 8.8.8.8 - DOWN
   last drop route: Sun July 5 12:52:44 2015

 

and when the link is restored:

   interface: eth1
   carrier: up
   status: active
   Gateway: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

   ping gateway: 8.8.8.8 - REACHABLE
   recover last route: Sun July 5 12:54:06 2015
