Remote management of SXT LTEs

Sat Aug 25, 2018 11:29 pm

Is there an effective/simple way of managing a group of SXT LTEs? The 4G connections will obviously be lacking a fixed IP and be behind NAT so direct connection with Winbox etc won't be possible. I could get all the devices to log into a VPN but I'd prefer to not have to manage a VPN server just for this.
I have toyed with a regular email with status information just to keep tabs on them, but just wondering if there's another way that I may have missed.

I would set up a VPN "hub" for those SXT LTE to call home possibly using SSTP; you can dial into the hub and by RoMON or L3 manage any of the SXT LTEs.

This also opens the possibility of running a dude server on the hub, to (mass) monitor and manage the SXT LTEs.

Thanks pukkita.. Too used to traditional setups..
I hadn't thought of using another Mikrotik device (or possibly something with RouterOSx86 so I can use the disk for Dude) to manage the fleet.

Looks like the new Hex S is just what I need.

Yes, you could go VPS and use CHR; if you prefer having your own on a NOC or Office, couldn't agree more: an hEX or hEX S are ideal, seem to be conceived with this duty in mind: generous RAM, powerful dual core processor, MicroSD... while drawing very little power, taking little space and generating nill heat.
