External Input via Serial

Wed May 21, 2008 3:27 pm

Does anyone know if it is possible to use the serial port within RouterOS for generating alarms? We currently Use some high grade linux based cameras which have a serial interface for connecting open relay device such as door entry systems. I know there are devices out there that can easily do this but can't see any technical reason why it couldn't be done within the CPE as long as the software supported it.

Answered my own question, RTFM! :)

Disable the console with

system console set 0 disabled=yes

then start talking to it with

serial-terminal serial0

Cheers,
