Hi,

Is Zerotier Multipath supported on RUTX11?

Found this - https://community.teltonika-networks.com/22877/zerotier-multi-path-support-for-rutx12?show=22877#q22877 and have asked the same question but no response yet.

Multipath would be really great to have working on Teltonika....

Thanks in advance.

Rory

Hi,

As RUTX11 shares the same firmware as RUTX12 - yes it will work.

Thanks EB.  This has me hopeful but when you check status you get something like:

{
 "address": "xxxxxxxxx",
 "clock": xxxxxxxxx,
 "config": {
  "physical": null,
  "settings": {
   "allowTcpFallbackRelay": false,
   "bind": null,
   "controllerDbPath": null,
   "multipathMode": 2,
   "portMappingEnabled": true,
   "primaryPort": 9993,
   "rabbitmq": null,
   "softwareUpdate": "disable",
   "softwareUpdateChannel": "release"
  }
 },
 "multipath": null,
 "online": true,
 "planetWorldId": xxxxxxxx,
 "planetWorldTimestamp": xxxxxxxxx,
 "publicIdentity": "xxxxxxxxxxxxx",
 "tcpFallbackActive": false,
 "version": "1.4.6",
 "versionBuild": 0,
 "versionMajor": 1,
 "versionMinor": 4,
 "versionRev": 6
}

So Im not so sure it is using multipath

According to ZT Manual - https://www.zerotier.com/manual/#2_1_5     We should get something like this::

Monitoring a multipath link  this example shows traffic split roughly evenly across the paths on separate physical interfaces.

"settings": {
    "multipathMode": 2
}

...

"multipath": {
  "9f47c03a5b": {
   "aggregateLinkLatency": 25,
   "aggregateLinkPacketDelayVariance": 6,
   "paths": [
    {
     "address": "172.116.130.93/43032",
     "allocation": 0.512172758579254,
     "ifname": "phy0",
     "latency": 13.0,
     "stability": 0.820895612239838
    },
    {
     "address": "2605:e000:1600:c315:0000:ff0b:eca2:452c/9993",
     "allocation": 0.487827271223068,
     "ifname": "wlan0",
     "latency": 30.0,
     "stability": 0.772978186607361
    }
  So I'm not convinced this is working yet.  It is made harder because the current package version 1.4.6 does not support ZT commandd such as zerotier-cli bond list or listbonds  https://zerotier.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/SD/pages/568459265/Multipath

Any thoughts on how we can verify that this is working?

1.4.6 doesn't really support multipath.

See https://community.teltonika-networks.com/26094/rutx12-and-zerotier?show=26094#q26094 how to build 1.6.2.

@teltonika, when can we expect an updated zerotier version in the packet manager on rutx11/rutx12?

Especially on rutx12, it would enable easy traffic aggregation.

Thanks ollinist!

Yes I had seen that post and was building that also.  I now have 1.6.4 installed. When I try and see if Multipath is working though with zerotier-cli -j status I do not see both paths like in https://www.zerotier.com/manual/#2_1_5%C2%A0or with zerotier-cli listbonds shows "none".    Any tips?  Did you manage to get it working?.  Would be great if Teltonika would provide an updated package and a bit more support on it....
