I did some light searching so forgive me if I'm missing the relevant posts that I missed.
* Silent Deployment
* Command-line options
I've just 'discovered' Dude today and it's quite an impressive piece of software.
Sparing additional detail, my goal would be to automate the deployment of dude to a target machine, start it, and automatically export a standard network map.
From the looks of it this may not be currently possible but I figured I would post to be sure and perhaps find out if these would be worth voting for as feature requests. In the mean time, I'll otherwise be looking at where Dude stores it's configuration (file system, registry) to see if I can automate the process of placing the binaries on a machine and creating the necessary registry/file configuration so it can be started automatically and then run as a system service (regmon, filemon come to mind as tools I'll try to use for this)...
Thanks for any comments you guys may have to offer and thanks to the Mikrotik team for making such cool software
