Re: I'm sure Mikrotik has a legit response to this...

The response that Normis gave is equivalent to saying, "I don't have AIDS" when he should be able to be saying, "I don't have AIDS and I always wear a condom too." We don't just want Mikrotik to be looking for and fixing vulnerabilities, we also want modern development and design practices that pre...

Re: I'm sure Mikrotik has a legit response to this...

What is he even referring to? Is it a reply to some paper discussing number of vulnerabilities in router products? Where is it to be found? I found an article here: https://securityledger.com/2019/08/huge-survey-of-firmware-finds-no-security-gains-in-15-years/ I also looked at the website of the or...

Re: A serious issue on RB4011 after upgrade to RouterOS version 6.45.2

I prefer to stay on 6.45.1 until Mikrotik team stops this storm of bugs and lets the community know we can safely update avoiding significant issues. Otherwise will have to think twice if it's worth using Mikrotik hardware once you may quite unexpectedly get a swarm of bugs and issues. They do warn...

Re: Using Splunk to analyse MikroTik logs 2.7 (Graphing everything) Topic is solved

I also wanted to note that I'm not advocating that anyone switch from rsyslog or whatever they're currently using to syslog-ng unless they have good reason to do so. I don't even really have an opinion on how they compare. I've been working with syslog-ng a bit so that's what I'm familiar with. I'm ...

Re: Using Splunk to analyse MikroTik logs 2.7 (Graphing everything) Topic is solved

If any is interested, I have a rather complex rsyslog to handle non standard syslog packed that also add time stamp if that is missing on incoming packets. I think that syslog-ng has an option that can be used to do this. keep-timestamp() Description: Specifies whether syslog-ng should accept the t...

Re: Using Splunk to analyse MikroTik logs 2.7 (Graphing everything) Topic is solved

It need to be UDP/514. Its there Router OS sends its syslog. But: If you use UDP/514, you need to run Splunk as root user. (allow ports below 1024 need root permission) If you can not do that, there are two workaround. 1. Send syslog to other port above 1023, like 1514 for UDP syslog. 2. Set up a l...

Re: Cap AC, Hap AC2 or UniFi?

I'm actually very happy with the hAP ac2. My home is of wood construction, is single story, and about 185 m^2. We have a couple of tablets, a couple of smartphones, a couple of laptops, and an Amazon Fire stick on the TV. We occasionally have house guests that add another 1 or 2 phones and perhaps a...
