Agreed, but I only access it on a local management LAN that normal people can't access (at least not without a lot of effort).Lack of administration via encryted channels (TLS, ssh) is a downside of SWOS.
No - in general.Your concern is that the router will be public facing, correct?I have a MikroTik RB4011iGS+ running 6.45.9.
Note that 6.45.9 is quite elderly. Is there a reason that you are running such an old version of RouterOS?
In other words, you bought something other than what you are looking for, and then are bitching that it does not work the way you wanted. Frankly, I am VERY glad that it is no ddwrt compatible.My only sadness now is that I bought this device thinking it was ddwrt/openwrt/tomato compatible.
Use your existing POE injectors, but power if from a 24 volt battery plant. Use the same thing to power the routers. Much easier than any sort of UPS.Is there such a thing but with ethernet inputs/outputs to go in between regular injectors and devices? Would make things a bit simpler
That's what I do...If one was proactive and wanted to be more aggressive one would log all entry attempts on port 8291 on input chain and block those IPs for all ports on raw chain.
The configuration restore can be used for restoring the router's configuration, exactly as it was at the backup creation moment, from a backup file.
Ain't that interesting...There is traffic from my PC. So let's check the browser page. (Chrome has the developers tools built in).
And the browser is checking upgrade.microsoft .com to fill in this page. The switch is not initiating a request.
Step one - stop using QuickSet. QuickSet sort of can be used one time for an initial setup (ONLY IF YOU REALLY NEED TO), but as soon as you make ANY other change to the router config, then NEVER AGAIN touch QuickSet."VPN Access" checkbox the QuickSet window...
