Terminal / ssh / telnet support for SwOS ?

Wed Nov 06, 2019 10:36 am

Is there any support for it if not is it in the works or coming anytime soon?

Right now RB260GSP only has webGUI support which is limited.

For example if i want to get a new ip address from DHCP server i have to reboot the whole switch and thus rebooting all connected PoE devices.

I do not use swOS... really there is no telnet under tools?

What do you mean you have to reboot to get a new address from DHCP server?

As i understand you cannot telnet into the swOS.

How do you push a new DHCP request to the dhcp server without reboot? There is no button for it and no CLI to push that command.

The client device should request an IP from the DHCP Server... if there is already a lease for a specific client then in order to get a new different IP the client must release the one it has and then renew to a new one...
Your DHCP server has nothing to do with that...

The proccess is ( How DHCP Server works ):
Client Discovers a DHCP server
DHCP Server Offers an address
DHCP Client Requests the address offered
DHCP Servers sends an Ack

Dont know if it will work, but maybe try and change something under system tab, i.e. un-tick and re-tick something and then click apply to save changes, maybe then it will then renew DHCP lease

i understand how it works question is how to initiate a release and renew..

Base SwOS product page implies that sole UI available is web interface.

I obviously can't speak for Mikrotik ... however, it's been implied a few times that SwOS is not going to get any UI other than web UI. CRS series can run both SwOS and ROS, both offering same functionality but with different UI selections. Low-end switches and CSS series can only run SwOS though ...

Web UI of SwOS is designed with simplicity in mind. Vast majority of people don't link CLI and simplicity ... ROS, OTOH, is designed to be extremely flexible. Multiple UI choice goes hand-in-hand with flexibility.
