Re: Woobm with Linux [SOLVED]

So i think, woobm waits for Mikrotik's serial prompting on serial (USB) line and only thinks, its connected, if proper prompt received.

Re: Woobm with Linux [SOLVED]

woobm is basically a prolific PL2303 usb to TTL serial adaptor glued to an ESP8266 + some local flash.
as far as i know, ssh is not supported at all - which is kind of disappointing.
let me check it what does it do when i plug it into an usb charger :-)

Re: RB850Gx2 vs RB450Gx4

So according to your sheet the RB450Gx4 should have the possibillity for dualband wifi?
Wonder why mikrotik did'nt put it in.
i guess space constraints. the extra power input jack, the serial console, poe-out, all take up valuable space. and to have wifi you would need some extra circuitry

There perhaps any chance we can get USB console ports on these cheaper devices in the future ?

Newer, faster, cheaper, but same size.
can we assume that Mikrotik will ditch the PPC platform altogether?
the RB1100 series is already arm. now the RBx50 as well. the last survivor seems to be the RB800.

How about RM(rackmount) version of Hex? You could use a tray and put a few of those little rascals side by side. ;-) we built a rack-mount kit that accommodates 2 of them and has lights-out to make the link/activity indicators visible even if the devices are tightly stacked on top of each other.

yes, this is the intended way with all mikrotik platforms. that support both POE-in and DC power in. even the smallest ones. it will prefer the one with higher voltage. so whenever the preferred one's voltage drops to zero, it will use the other one w/o any hassle. there is however a different metho...
