Re: Winbox on Linux?

You need to install wine package to your system.You can find the appropriate package and instalation manual here: http://www.winehq.org/ . Install it, then download winbox.exe from any of your router and save it in your home directory (or somewhere else if you wish, for example in /usr/local/bin/ )....

I would hope that with 1500 customers you are testing these things before you roll them into production ; ) Sure, I do that :) And I always have a spare flash-disk with preconfigured OS before upgrade. But I can't test new version on every hardware type we use in production netwotk. Our customers a...

Make sure you put in a supout to Mikrotik, at support@mikrotik.com! Very VERY VERY important! I tried to make supout. Of course, I'd be glad to help developers to investigate this issue, but I was unable to make this file. I spent 5 minutes waiting for router, until it generates this file, but with...

Beware of 3.7! 3.6 was bad and buggy, but 3.7 is even worse! :evil: I've just upgraded one of my x86 routers to 3.7 and got CPU load 100%. The traffic was about 40-50 Mbps instead of usual 200-250 Mbps. After entering username and password from local console MT banner appeared on display in moment, ...

Re: Winbox on Linux?

So when you're running winbox on linux, do you call it LinBox? :D
no, you call it winbox in disguise :)
But if you wish, you can call it linbox :)
echo "alias linbox='/usr/bin/wine ~/winbox.exe'" >> ~/.bashrc

CPUs on these routers are Intel Core Duo. After setting /system hardware multi-cpu=no the problem was solved and both rout...

And anyway, I suggest admins to keep the latest proven to work versions locally. Twice I've run into situation when some routers refuse to start after upgrade, and the only way to recover it was to downgrade from archive. One of this failures leaved me without access to Internet at all.

European rule for DST

Hi,
It could be nice to add a European (and Latvian too :)) DST rule into /system clock dst, just a simple function like this:
day of start:  (31 - (5 * yyyy / 4 + 4) mod 7) March
day of end:   (31 - (5 * yyyy / 4 + 1) mod 7) October 
where yyyy - current year between 2000 and 2099.

For automated administration tasks I use perl script, that logins into router via SSH, sends console commands and returns the RouterOS responses back to the script. This solution works fine for me and is more safe than http. This idea I picked somewhere on this forum.
