Re: How to switch default Security Profile in Winbox?

SergeS, having an unused DEFAULT profile is not a problem or issue! I understand it would be cleaner to rename it in the list but as you do not use it in the wireless interface it does not harm... You can select key, and passphrase to make sure in case you would accidentally use that profile you do...

Re: How to switch default Security Profile in Winbox?

SergeS, For me there are more important things than changing the name of the default sec profile which you can not do if you use device with default config. (Just don;t use this profile and put for security a long pass phrase into it... ) I think the only way to get rid of the default profile is, i...

Double-click it and change its properties ...
Did you try by yourself? What specific property?

Re: How to switch default Security Profile in Winbox?

I did not mean how to change security profile used in specific wireless interface, I know that. My question is about default security profile, which marks with * and cannot be deleted. I would like to delete default security profile, which is not allowed. https://sergeskor.no-ip.org/Files/mkt/Captur...

Re: Help to choose mikrotik router

In terms of a new unit, getting the hapac2 would be one approach and then use the hapac at the far location assuming wired rooms.
So, if to buy new router, you would recommend hapac2? Or RB4011?

Perhaps you should post your config and we can find the root of current issues before spending further $$$

Re: Help to choose mikrotik router

I think you should separate your needs for a router and wifi. To provide assistance, one needs to know more about your wifi coverage area. How many rooms, floors, type of walls etc... and where they are in relation to the current wifi router location. How many wired outlets are in the house? I have...

Re: What does it really measure: "Tx/Rx Signal Strength (dBm)"?

I'll assume that units in winbox are right ... Whenever some quantity is expressed in dB, this means logarithm (base 10) of ratio between two values with same unit ... which makes ratio unit-less. E.g. "my index finger is 3dB longer than my child's index finger" ... in decimal units that translates...

Re: 6.43 change in login process and API libraries?

"Where traffic can be easily sniffed by 3rd parties you should establish secure connection anyway."

Ok, now on not secured connection we have to pass password as open plain text, which is unsecured even more :-(.
Are there any advantages of post-6.43 login method?

Re: simple switch and WiFi AP (no dhcp, no nat)

I think "Home AP" in quick set should do.
No, Home AP will create another IP subnet for wifi and wired clients on lan ports. This is exactly I would like to avoid.
I need just switch and wifi AP, no dhcp server, no nat, no another ip subnet, no masquerading.

Re: How to read file content using API?

You can't directly with api. Download file via ftp and then read content locally.

Is this bug? or feature? It was working with some older versions of firmware. Are there any hope it may work in future versions?

Re: How to read file content using API?

/file/get

Ok, this one is working (for small files), thank you.
The way how i did it before:
/file/print
=.proplist=contents
?name=filename.ext
is also working (only for small files).

Still question is how to get >4Kb file content, using API?

Re: How to read file content using API?

You will not get file content if file size is larger than 4KB.
But it was definitely working for larger files, i have tried with export file (.rsc)...

Re: NAT Loopback, for all ports.

Instead of getting NAT loopback working, in my opinion it would make more sense to solve this by DNS.

I have just setup static dns record, it solves a lot of probl...

Re: NAT Loopback, for all ports.

The old setup was working because your provider's router was doing the loopback. There is no single rule to reroute incoming traffic through the prerouting chain of your WAN, so that DNAT rules are obeyed. The solution could be to rewrite those DNAT and input rules, so they don't use interfaces on ...
