gone […] the ability to use hostnames
Any news on that?
With 7.1beta4, I am still not able to use a FQDN as address; at least in WebFig: ‘Invalid value in Address’. Via the command-line interface (CLI), I am able to edit a domain. Then, in Wireshark, I see a DNS resolution of that, but the NTP client does not start afterwards. In WebFig, the status stays at ‘waiting'. Same was also reported by @Uxorious in Jun. 2020
I know there is that MikroTik cloud2 service to get the time. However, I do not want to use that (too often behind a Captive Portal blocking that). Therefore, another question: Is RouterOS able to analyze DHCP(v6) and extract the NTP server from that? And when that is not present, to fall-back to my configured address?
