Re: Hardware of choice for many NVR connections (trough VPNs)

It depends on the amount of traffic you are going to pass through the VPNs, but an RB4011 will probably be OK. I have over 600 L2TP/IPsec VPNs (~50-60 on average connected concurrently) with over 3800 firewall rules on an RB4011, and it barely breaks a sweat (avg 1-5% CPU). But the total traffic is ...

You can use Winbox v3.20 which does not have this bug.

It has been reported since 2020 (v3.22 - or even earlier than that), and after multiple version updates it still hasn't been fixed.

This has been addressed in Winbox 3.24. You can move the columns around and also apply filters on the log window. In your case, going from VGA to HDMI, I can only assume that your PC changed it's dpi scaling. With dpi scaling anything other than 100%, older versions of winbox will cause the log wind...

Re: v6.47rc [testing] is released!

Upgraded from 6.45.5 to 6.47rc2.

Noticed that btest is taking up more memory causing boards with 32MB RAM to become unresponsive.

I don't know in which version this started. I also tried 6.46.6 with the same results.

Re: SwitchOS not treating lag like single link for spanning tree?

I've got a CRS317 with LACP bonding.
On the other end I've got two Cisco Nexus 7706 (portchannel with VPC).

I don't have the issue you describe.
But I use RouterOS instead of SwOS.

Re: Recover admin password [SOLVED]

Open Addresses.CDB with notepad and you will probably be able to find the password in there.

Re: My MikroTik is Hacked!!! Found file 7wmp0b4s.rsc [SOLVED]

[joking]
I am using Windows 95, they have been working great for the last 25 years without any updates!
I've also been using no firewall, since firewalls are for newbs.

But, today I logged in only to find out that they were hacked!

How could this have happened???

Re: The extra packages in RouterOS [SOLVED]

Like I said: even the standard downgrade function does not work, as the version is the same as before, after the reboot. Then you are doing something wrong. Read the fine manual again and retry until you succeed. Only with exercise you will learn how to properly use ROS. [admin2@CRS125] /ip service...

Re: Wireless sniffing - Is this possible

I believe that Wireless Sniffer uses the same protocol as Packet Sniffer to stream the data to a server. TZSP
