If you're pining for vi, you'll like the CLI better, anyway. And too right. Winbox is alright for monitoring since it refreshes values in near real time. The CLI is way better for applying configuration.
True, I played with winbox before to configure a RB750, but swapped to cli soon
On the other hand, in winbox you got a very quick overview of all the possibilities which is nice also, especially when you're new to MT, like me.
Really love RouterOS, but got many things to investigate before I will use it in production. (now everything I do is based on coova-chilli, ubnt and m0n0wall)
Need to read especially the stuff about config backup/restore, mass deployment, etc.
For example I wonder, if I backup/restore configs, are the homebrew scripts (like dyndns) also backed up and restored?
Also while we 're talking, If someone could point me to a way to use the same UAM server / loginscript for chillispot based hotspots and MT hotspots that would be very helpfull too.
(I got issues with UAM secret / challenge which is handled differently in both devices)
Kind regards & thx
