Re: Forced routing with UTM connected both ends to Mikrotik

To whoever may be interested - I just gave up and added another Mikrotik to the network. So the UTMs are in between two Mikrotik routers and it works like a charm. The planned config would be just too problematic (even if it's doable). With the second device it's easy as 1, 2, 3. Thanks to all who r...

Re: Forced routing with UTM connected both ends to Mikrotik

Maybe you should just make bridge for ETH1+ETH2 and the second for ETH3+ETH4 and connect it with this UTM?
Thanks. Sounds interesting. I assume some policy routing will still be required? I'll check that and get back to you.

Re: Forced routing with UTM connected both ends to Mikrotik

If the UTM is in bridge mode, why not simply connect it in-line with one of the ethernet ports? Thanks, the traffic inside the wire that would be connected to the UTM is tagged VLANs and from what I know it doesn't support VLANs (Sophos). And in real config there will be two UTMs daisy chained (cli...

Re: Feature request: better handling of context menus in Winbox

What they should do is to replace context menu with dialog (with listbox and items with checkboxes), where you could (de)select several columns at once. And if it would also allow to reorder them, it would be even better.
Makes sense, thanks!

Re: v3.26 Released

I attached a serial cable, and it just displays: Mikrotik 3.26 Router Login: Finally, I don't know how, I managed to login to this device (I used the reset jumper on the board several times) Sorry, the inability to login was caused by my terminal emulation program (putty). I managed to rescue the s...

Re: v3.26 Released

why do all of you just install new software without testing it with your configuration somwhere near you????? and then blame someboby else for that.... i dont think that there is any urgent need to update a router as far as 600km away with a brand new untested release ... 8 routers upgraded without...

Re: v3.26 Released

One of my RB433AH (previously 3.25) died. Also RB532 died (previously 3.25). As for 433AH - it upgraded, and it boots, but I'm unable to connect with anything. I attached a serial cable, and it just displays: Mikrotik 3.26 Router Login: Finally, I don't know how, I managed to login to this device (...

Feature request: additional features of safe mode

First, thanks for safe mode - it's a marvellous facility that saved my life hundreds of times. I can suggest some ways of expanding it: - first - a button or checkbox in Winbox, like "Hide passwords" - when I turn it on, it's like CTRL-X; when I turn it off, it means "commit changes", - second - a c...

Re: Winbox suggestion

TrueCrypt / BitLocker helps to not care about such details ;-) will they help to allow WinBox to acces his config and block other programs from accessing it? This is going OT, but I want to answer. Do you install random crap on your production laptop? Do you browse random and/or questionable sites ...

Re: Winbox suggestion

isn't it possible to obtain command line parameters of any user's process in system? =) Yup. I was hoping that Winbox would do something sensible in this regard (spawn child, kill parent?), but I haven't tested it and I suspect that my optimism is unplaced! Nick. No, wait! Do you use Winbox on serv...

Re: Winbox suggestion

sorry, but all this looks like reinventing the wheel: (...) Q: what else i can use, i do not want to use DUDE, you should improve winbox A: DUDE is feature rich tool that can replace winbox. if you look at dude as a winbox replacement - you can simply add devices, turn all probes down, assign route...

Re: Winbox suggestion

winbox.cfg saves plain text passwords ! Why does not it save MD5 or SHA1 password, and not to use plan text authentification when sending password (even with secure connection). Just simply store and authentificate with MD5 or SHA1 hashed password, like many others programs. IMO this is a feature n...

Re: Winbox suggestion

I'm missing the option to move devices between maps. After adding e.g. 30 devices to one map, I realized that ONLY option to organize and filter them out would be the "Map" dropdown. But after adding I'm unable to move them to other map, so I suppose I'll have to drop them and recreate again... Or i...

Re: Winbox suggestion

I don't think we will expand the winbox loader anymore, you must use the Dude. This is why I ask, what improvements to the Dude do you want to see, to make it usable in such way? Definitely one thing. After clicking the "thunder" icon on top left, there should be list of Dude Servers to choose from...

Re: Winbox suggestion

Normis, The Dude solution is definitely not as good as find/filter button in Winbox would be... In order to use Dude you need to run local server (because it must work even if the whole network is down). Another issue is that in Dude there is no session manager - so you cannot save credentials for d...

Re: Winbox suggestion

Why not use The Dude, which was made for this purpose? Thanks Normis for the suggestion, however I forgot to mention that the sessions are from DOZENS different customers... So they are not connected with each other and certainly won't fit on one map :-) Winbox is a great tool that manages alll of ...

Winbox suggestion

Hello, I have DOZENS of sessions saved in Winbox. That really saves me from remembering DOZENS of IPs, usernames and passwords. Would it be possible to have some sort of "find" textbox, similar to what is in almost every window of RouterOS, that would filter displayed sessions to those containing ty...
