If this is the support we're getting then maybe we should start investigating alternatives.

This is not support as much as it is a request for a software change or am I missing something?

Well I'm glad you're still reading these forums SIRHC.

Please see previous post in this thread. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2541&start=30#p23844

Basically I'd request the watchdog has an option to disable the power on ICMP ping SUCCESS as well as failure.

Further to earlier post, if you have a chain of linked OSPF sites you obviously have to check each hop's loopback address. So in this case I created 2 IP addresses on the Mikrotik facing the netonix so the watchdog can check against them. Essentially one to turn the radio on and one to turn it off.

As Mikrotik Netwatch can only check 1 IP address, instead we have to use a Mikrotik Script. I schedule the following to run every minute.

#check for Site 1 (172.17.2.204), Site 2 (172.17.3.84) and Site 3 (172.17.1.236) and turn on reserve radio IP address if any of them fail

if (([/ping 172.17.2.204 interval=5 count=3] = 0) or ([/ping 172.17.3.84 interval=5 count=3] = 0) or ([/ping 172.17.1.236 interval=5 count=3] = 0)) do={
/ip address enable [find address="172.31.3.137/32"]
/ip address disable [find address="172.30.3.137/32"]} else={
/ip address disable [find address="172.31.3.137/32"]
/ip address enable [find address="172.30.3.137/32"]
}
