Can anyone give another guide to set up a hotspot?

Do i need to set an httpd server on mikrotik?

Log doesnt say anything

How can I debug my hotspot?

I ve readed the how to, and the manual pages.

Thank you

hotspot is the easiest thing in RouterOS to make!

In short steps:

1. enable interfaces, call one `public` - other `local`
2. set IP addresses
3. add default route, add masquerading rule (check if internet works from the PC behind it).
4. run hotspot setup in winbox and fill in the basics (you don't need certificate, SMTP server IP and DNS name, those leave blank).
