Re: CHR ARM64 images are broken? [SOLVED]

Sorry for confusion, it seems the build server has an issue, internal builds worked, but not public release versions. Please wait for next betas to test this.

In short, publicly downloadable ARM64 CHR is not working right now.

Re: NEW FEATURE: Back to Home VPN

Looks like your RouterOS is not running the latest version. Make sure you are up to date.

Re: v7.14beta [testing] is released!

When 7.14 is not in beta, config should be migrated normally. During beta all kind of bugs can be possible, so be careful.

Re: Mikrotik V7 - PPTP not recommended

1) You can use PPTP. It will only show a warning. There is no limitation.
2) PPTP is known to be vulnerable and easily hackable. Recently some exploits were published. Nobody should use it anymore.

Correction, old SMB did not work with macOS.
New v7.14 SMB works with all Operating Systems now. And is fast too.
There is a different config now, so you may need to adjust first.

Re: [Discussion] MikroTik configuration abstraction complexity

It is not, that's why home user can use "MikroTik Home" app, or rely on the ISP to configure their device. Some mobile operators don't even allow access to RouterOS to home users. The strength comes in the feature set the ISP has available, not on user friendliness.

Indeed, it is very old. But there is a gap in release of the fixed ROS version "6.49.7 (2022-Oct-11 17:37)" and the blog article from 27th Jul, 2023. I don't know why there is this time offset in fixing and announcing that something critical was fixed. It was not critical. It requires ful...

Re: Newsletter #116 | January 2024

"Can run" is not the same thing as "Runs well". I guess if you only control two lights with HA, it will run nearly anywhere. It is just an example, don't take it too literally. We already informed Marketing that they exaggerated in this case.

Re: webconfig not reachable from Firefox using https

Firefox has strict security settings. There is nothing to report to them, this is by design. You can turn off HTTPS ONLY MODE in Firefox, but they are right, it is dangerous to visit HTTP only sites and enter passwords in them. Don't do that. Use Winbox, or set up proper HTTPS for Webfig.

Re: CHR Relicense to new account

CHR license is account based. There is no way to move licenses. They need to log-out in the CHR installation, you can then log in with your account and license it from your account.

hAP ax3 should have better antennas and better coverage. By looking at those reports, it seems that either a few users have not properly attached their external antennas, or there might be some hardware defect. I suggest to email support if you have a unit that performs worse than ax2
