Re: Hi, restore OS, is possible?

You will loose the license as soon as you format the onboard storage with/for your own linux distribution. RouterOS can be re-installed, but you will need a new license.

Re: PPTP VPN

If you want to use the vpn interface in your routing entry: Take a look at static pptp interfaces: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:In ... PTP_Server

This will create a static pptp interface "vpn1-interface" for the user "vpn1":
/interface pptp-server add name=vpn1-interface user=vpn1

Re: Problem Adding credits after time purchase expires

IRC channel/chat for mikrotik: Back to life?

Hello. I think, it would be nice to have an irc channel or chat for mikrotik. (I know, it's not the right thing for everyone, but maybe usefull for some people, who are using mikrotik.) Solutions or remaining problems could go into the forum or wiki. (IRC shouldn't be a replacement for the forum, bu...

I assumed (and feared) an answer like this ;-). Thank you anyway. (After all I know, that I'm not blind and there is no trivial solution.)

Maybe this router will have to reboot once a week or so...

Watch/monitor services (like ssh, winbox)

Hi. Is it possible to monitor services like ssh or winbox? Can I restart ssh/winbox (without reboot), if the service is gone down for some reason? We had one router, where dhcp stopped working. Unfortunately "everything" else stopped working - but networking/routing was ok. I was able to reach hosts...

Accessing a Mikrotik router behind NAT and dyn IP.

Hello. I try to setup access to a Mikrotik router, which will be behind a(ny) NAT router - without changeing anything on that NAT router (like portforwarding or services like changeip.com or dyndns for keeping the dynamic ip address.)

nstreme2 and WPA-encryption possible?

Hello. It is possible to encrypt a nstreme2-connection with WPA or anything else, which is not demanding for "much" cpu power? I can't use security profiles for wlan interfaces, because "Many parameters from /interface wireless menu are ignored, using the nstreme2" (documentation of Nstreme2 Group S...

I suppose the easiest/quickest way would be to enable default-authentication just before the upgrade, then upgrade and lock down the system again with the new connect-list feature (if desired)... This way becomes more difficult, if you try this remote and you know, that there is more that the one A...

Hi Christian. For wireless clients you don't use the access-list, but the connect-list to specify which APs the client may associate to. Thanks for your information. The problem seems to be, that the connect list does not exist within 2.8, but does exist in 2.9. So with 2.8 I have to register the ma...

The MAC of the AP, to which the station should connect, was within the access list. But with disabled default authentication the station didn't connect to that AP. Is there a new option in 2.9, which does not exist in 2.8, which is set to a to much secure default value if you upgrade? (Security prof...
