Re: [Feature Request] :resolve DNS Client Improvements

Oh good question @colin, I don’t know of a way. Perhaps adding :resolve server=8.8.8.8 might be handy.

Re: [Feature Request] :resolve DNS Client Improvements

Thanks @cthil and @Cha0s for the feedback. At current, I use an external resolver via HTTP/CGI interface to circumvent the limitations of the internal one and would be VERY happy to abandon that path. Truth be told, I'm trying desperately to avoid taking this path in the first place. I'm working on ...

Re: IPv6 Ping does not work with domain names

I didn't realize there was a thread that was this old about frustration with the RFC-noncompliant nature of DNS resolution in RouterOS. I think @alaine was on the right track in 2015 when they suggested that the best angle to take is a backward-compatible improvement to :resolve . Anyone still follo...

Re: [Feature Request] :resolve DNS Client Improvements

I don't see a problem with :resolve, it just resolves to which address to go. In a literal sense, I agree. This is why I'm suggesting that the default behavior without type= or full-answer=true be preserved for backward compatibility. Getting a single answer is a useful property of :resolve . Not e...

Re: [Feature Request] DHCP(v4/v6) client: Make arbitrary option codes requestable and provide their values to the script

+100, again.

Even if the actual mechanisms aren't directly supported, arbitrary DHCP option requests and values would be really handy.

[Feature Request] :resolve DNS Client Improvements

One of the advantages of RouterOS is its scriptability and the strength of its shell syntax for getting things done. New improvements in the :system and :tool areas have given us more tools than ever, and augmenting existing features with script="" hooks have given us even more places to use those t...

CHR Serial0 settings catch-22?

On a HW routerboard, you can set the onboard serial baud rate (usually for `serial0`) with `system routerboard settings set baud-rate=<rate>`. Another way seems to be to press `s` during the boot process and select it that way. CHR shows only `routerboard=no` (for good reason; it isn't one), but thi...
