Re: CHR NAT performance on desktop HW?

Virtualbox ontop of Windows is not a hypervisor which is needed to gain good performance. If you have Windows 7 you don't have access Hyper-V. If you could run Windows 10 pro instead then you can run Hyper-V and have a hypervisor and Windows at the same time.

Re: Configuring a Trunk Port on ROS installed on top of VMWare Workstation

That's also true yes. x86 does not support vxmnet3, so no 10G.
Isn't E1000 cards emulated as well so for that reason more CPU bound even at 1 Gbit?

Re: Configuring a Trunk Port on ROS installed on top of VMWare Workstation

I think you are limited to E1000 cards if you use x86 but if you use CHR you can use vxmnet3 which will give more performance.
In your case you test both if you use a hypervisor:)

Not 100 % sure but I do not think this can be done within ROS.
My guess is we won't see it soon either. DNS can be very CPU intensive. With to much DNS config it would be easy to DOS or DDOS your router.
Best is to hold this separat from the router.

Can't you block external requests to the built im DNS and then add the AD DNS IP to your router.
Them the AD server can use external servers.

If the clients connected that needs DNS you should consider using the real IP addresses from AD as the DNS server internally if possibly.

Re: v5.12 released

Great with SMB built in but is it v1 or v2? Native or emulated?

Re: SSTP: recvd too small packet

The update was aimed to correct issues with tls and ssl. If Microsoft have corrected this shouldn't mikrotik do the same?
