RouterOs Queries

Wed Oct 06, 2004 1:12 pm

Hi,

I've got a couple of queries regarding the RouterOS and where it's going and such...

1) Is the RouterOS going to support OpenVPN (whether as a client or a server or both) at any time?

2) I noticed that the RouterOS updates it's firewall list in realtime. For instance you add a rule it updates. If you paste 20 rules it adds them one at a time, updating the firewall each time (and using quite a bit of CPU resources especially on a low power system). Is it possible to add the feature to import a file (in the same format as an exported file) and have the firewall update only after the entire list is finished? this would also be useful in section where other rules are added ie. queues, policy routing, etc.

In v2.9, everything has been speeded up. So, you shouldn't see any issues there.

Good to hear...I'll test v2.9 tomorrow if I have time...

Any comment on the OpenVPN query?
