NTP client if defined by DHCP? [SOLVED]

Do I have to configure NTP client manually, if I define the address over DHCP and have a local server?
I see that it is associated and added correctly in client, however I can not remove the addresses.

Listing config settings / resetting to factory default?

Hello everyone,

can someone please instruct me how to reset configuration settings on MikroTik router to factory default settings, and is there a way to print out complete configuration settings on one screen? - This would be very practical for me, as I sometimes get lost around.


Thanks!

Re: Complete Begginer / 493 borad configuration questions

Thanks a lot guys, I've maged my MikroTik.

I do like it features, tho it is very hard to dive in at first, + I still don't know much about it, but it works.

I would say that learning MikroTik has a lot to do with learning how TCP/IP standards work.

Re: Complete Begginer / 493 borad configuration questions

I usually don't say that, but a compliment "You are the bast!" came to my mind. Thank you for your effort Hilton. :)

I am finally digging in some solutions after considerable amount of wandering through the wastes.

Will post success/failure/questions.
