Re: RouterOS v7.0 beta1 - when?

Can't you be just happy that there are free updates which not only fix security holes but also improve functionality? And you can get all of that with device prices starting at $50?

Totally agree :!: :!:

Re: v6.44 [stable] is released!

No upgrade issues on RB750gr3 and HAPac2.

Hopefully the wireless on the HAPac2 is more stable as before.

Re: Using Splunk to analyse MikroTik logs 2.6 (Graphing everything) Topic is solved

Are you sure your "router script" is complete?

I had problems getting my data visible in splunk to.
It turned out that I missed the last "}" in the Router script.

Lately I had an issue with my iPhone 6.
I had changde to security profile and had checked both "WPA2-PSK" and "WPA2-EAS" authentication types.

Re: Openvpn server on rRpi - how to aloow openvpn clients to acess Rpi LAN

Do you have a dest-address-list called WAN-IP??

If not you have to create it or use dst-adress with your wan-ip adress.

Re: Using Splunk to analyse MikroTik logs 2.6 (Graphing everything) Topic is solved

The router is used as the timeserver for my local environment.
the HAPac2, the Dude server and the Splunk server synchronize time with the router and all have the same time and date.
