Feature request -> readonly mode

Thu Jan 09, 2014 1:24 am

Okay maybe its me not knowing what to do, but some time I have 2 screens open 1 to a new routeros install and 1 to an original one. I would like to put the original router into read only mode so I can't make any changes but still look at every things.

having a quick look I guess I can create a user with read only rights ! and use it.

But I am thinking of like we have the ctrl-x something we can do which just makes the console none writing ..

The safest (and best) way is as you suggested - create a read-only user for looking at your example router.

Ctrl-X (Safemode) is ok but will let you make changes (which may also be confusing) which should be lost when you disconnect from the router - unless you exit safemode first in which case changes will be saved.
