Re: What these numbers represent when vpn user disconnects?

Yep, I may well be wrong, but the bytes/packets should be a "whole" number, or - even if there are different sized packets - the ratio should be near to an average of some kind.
Your new log entry gives:
9363801/151358=61,86
332580302/249297=1334,07

Re: Hotspot ROS7 CHECKBOX

To be picky, that is not an article, it is (yet another) video.

I understand how it is considered the new way of communicating, but it is (IMHO) not very useful without some reference text/scripts/etc.

But how is the whole stuff connected?
The linked guide has the fiber connected to the sfp-sfpplus1 port (WAN) not on ether1.

Re: hEX PoE (RB960PGS)

It is a complication, but you could use a PoE splitter and converter with input 802.3at compatible and output 48V passive, and power the hex with the jack. The common issue (it depends on the other devices) is that the PoE output of the RB5009 is limited to: Max out per port output (input 30-57 V) 4...

Re: Silly constant wireless roaming breaks internet connection

A "strange" thing is that the signal from a lower floor AP can reach the upper floor with enough power to "disturb". There is an ongoing thread (actually a couple of them) specifically about the Ax3 and the capabilities of its "big ears" antennas. The theory is that the...

Re: scripts to keep LTE stick up and running

Looking around on the board, there are several scripts revolving around the two possible approaches Amm0 explained, triggered either by Netwatch or running at fixed time intervals via scheduler, with varying levels of complexity.

I am sure that for an experienced member your proposed approach is easy and clean :) , I was only doubting that it is easy for a newcomer.

Re: scripts to keep LTE stick up and running

@Amm0
Excuse me, but wouldn't a simple rule in "main" pointing to that specific IP do?
Having an added routing table and a routing rule isn't over-complicating it?

Re: scripts to keep LTE stick up and running

Cannot say if to keep the link some pinging is enough, but you could set a script that just pings the (I presume there is one) the DNS that the LTE provider gives you once every (say) hour or so. This could be a netwatch script or a scheduled one. If you use another DNS normally you could set a rout...

I believe that in recent/latest versions of ROS, the 4 address support/station bridge mode has been implemented: https://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?t=180369 but I have not seen complete/reproducible examples on its use.

Generally speaking some (good) USB sticks have in the controller some provisions to switch to "read only" in order to protect contents when a malfunction of some kind is detected. Still generally speaking cheaper sticks tend to simply fail and become inaccessible when there is a problem. S...
