DTD Link
Good Morning Group,

I ran into a new hiccup the other day. At one of our user sites we are using a GLI-750 as a in shack node connected to a rooftop Ubiquity M2 Rocket. We have always set these up in the following configuration and not had a problem. We have the users local internet going to the WAN port of the GLI-750. The LAN port goes to an unmanaged switch for device access and the center port goes directly to the second rooftop node in the DTD configuration. 

With this user I can boot the roof top node and log in direct and all will work as designed. I can also log into the shack node and it works as designed as well. Once I plug the rooftop node into the center DTD port I will see it connect as 100% LQ DTD in the mesh status then it will reject it and be gone. It will work for a bit then something happens.

After talking to some one with much more IT knowledge than my self he mentioned tagged and untagged packets as a point of conversation. I guess the question is will the GLI-750 work as I am trying to use it with the DTD feature or am I missing something.

Thanks in advance!

Replicated your setup

Andy, I replicated your setup on my AR750 and the UI shows the IP address of the other node connected on port 2 but does not show the link being DtD.  However, when I grab sysinfo.json it does show the linkType as DtD (http://localnode.local.mesh/cgi-bin/sysinfo.json?link_info=1).  I'm going to upgrade both nodes to the latest nightly build to see if it makes any difference.

Working okay now
I just upgraded the DtD node to NB #1674 and after the upgrade it now displays the nodename and DtD correctly in the UI.  Not sure exactly why, but upgrading the node helped.

Check the archives about this
Check the archives about this one.  I seem to recall reading that with one of the firmware changes, the ports re-arranged.  Sorry, I don't remember details as I don't have any of that type of equipment.

The documentation on the ar750 port functions was corrected .

Ports, left to right, WAN, DtD, LAN.

I think I know what you want

I do not have a Rocket, but...
I set up an AR750 with
WAN connected to my home LAN 192.168.0.x
LAN connected to my laptop
DtD connected to Mikrotik-uAP, Mikrotik SXTsq, Ubiquiti M900, then Ubiquiti locoM2

The AR750 showed a local LAN address and DtD links to each of the above DtD devices.

"will the GLI-750 work"?
Yes, it will work like this.
