Re: RouterOS v7.0 beta1 - when?

When? please an update - we are in so much pain with the existing 1072's and really don't want to replace them all if we don't need to! Or at least open up a version of CHR for ISO install with Intel drivers... when it's 1072 with ROS 7 becomes useless. why do we need beta for some devices in the e...

Re: RouterOS v7.0 beta1 - when?

p.s. Now, before everyone get's super hyped and expects a release next month...Personally, and by experience in the software engineering industry, I don't expect any betas before EOCY 2019 or Q1 2020. I was at a MUM recently and they said we could expect "stable" RouterOS 7 release before the end o...

Re: RouterOS v7.0 beta1 - when?

I just want to let everyone know, that v7 is progressing pretty good this year, and most core functionality is usable. Some more difficult parts need to be done and we can release a public beta. Thanks for the feedback @normis! It sure adds a bit more of clarity, although there's no rough timelines...

Re: RouterOS v7.0 beta1 - when?

Windows Phone was not vaporware, it was real ... shit. And that's why it disappeared real soon ... Well, it really showed that Microsoft thrives only on existing installed base. In a "new market", it really stands no chance against the competition. However, what I meant is that the platform has alm...

It's getting closer every day! ;)
What an awesome slogan for Mikrotik!

"Trust in Mikrotik! What you're waiting for is getting closer every day!" TM

Microsoft tried patenting that for Windows Phone/Mobile, but Mikrotik got there first ;)

Re: Feature Request: OpenVPN [ovpn] udp tunnels

I'm going to stick around for more 9 years at least. 11 years is not enough time to age properly a piece of software.

To me, software has to be distilled for a minimum of 20 years!

No one better than Mikrotik knows how to do this properly!!

Re: v6.45beta [testing] is released!

I'm waiting for 8 months when the bug 2018101022007579 will be fixed. I started refusing from CCR wherever such an opportunity arises And the funny thing is that in half a year, the support responded only once “Sorry, we will reconsider the priorities” Your top router dies completely from two packa...

Re: Feature Request: OpenVPN [ovpn] udp tunnels

This is getting to a point of being just plain pathetic...

Just forget about UDP and/or LZO...

Just make a decision, and if possible, fast!

#1 Adopt OVPN from source (not this crippled implementation)
#2 Adopt WireGuard (it's more than a "standard" now)

Oh, and provide timelines for this please.

Re: v6 RC and v7 BETA

They probably have other methods, feedback from distributors, people contacting support, MUM participants, ... so they probably know well what customers want. Being more open about their plans, and generally making customers feel closer to developement and heard, that's surely something they could ...

Re: Feature request - DNSCrypt support...

DoH is no longer a "waste of time" and it's now massively used by the industry (there's even Android Apps to turn on that nowadays with CloudFare for example). So, questions: 1. Is there an intention from Mikrotik to implement this? 2. Is there a sharable roadmap for the feature to be implemented? 3...

Re: v6 RC and v7 BETA

Community driven features and minimal public roadmap is not something Mikrotik knows how to handle properly. Since I recognize that roadmap/feature plans are difficult for the majority to "read" properly (i.e. understand that they might be (de)prioritized), at least the community driven feature requ...

Re: Feature request - DNSCrypt support...

Instead of wordless pluses, how about a discussion on TLS vs HTTPS. TLS gives you a specific port and capability to filter and NAT etc. HTTPS gives you more security, but also the inability to catch this traffic as an administrator. More aspects? Both would be the ideal scenario :) Naturally that I...

Re: SSTP VPN CA certificate import problem

Is it possible to setup a SSTP VPN (not site to site) using a wildcard certificate (i.e. *.domain.com)? And has anyone used certificates from DigiCert to establish a SSTP VPN in RouterOS? If yes, can anyone please provide some pointers for a n00b? :P Much appreciated and sorry for the thread hijack!...
