Re: hEX S & SFP S-RJ01

SFP port can be purposed however you need it to be.
Can you put the SFP into your :AN and connect a PC to it and access the router?
It sounds like hardware issue or negotiation problem between modem and SFP.

Re: How do i reinstall mikrotik license in new X86 VM

Older x86 licenses were done per installation per HDD. You'll be on an uphill struggle to get Mikrotik support to re-issue it for you as from what I've read they tend to only re-issue for damaged HDD's.
It will involve paying for a license but pay for a CHR license and never have this problem again.

Those are switches, not routers.
OP does not mention whether router or switch is needed, just that they want a cheap multi SFP unit.
Also CRS switches can route, maybe not a huge amount of traffic but can push over 100Mb with correct FT rules.

The reality of it is that most/all PPTP and SSTP solutions will work. L2TP/IPSEC, some will and some won't and openVPN is a bit of a shambles as far as MT goes.

Is your question more whats the best VPN or is it, I've got a VPN so how do I route my traffic?

It's likely CHR doesn't have drivers for your hardware (disk) so it can't find root filesystem and fails to boot. Sadly there are no kernel messages so you don't really know what's happening.
Or it's designed to be run virtually and not on bare metal.
