: If I understand it correctly, your employee stuff up, make excuses and because of that, you want Mikrotik to adjust setting for whole world?
That just does not add up
No to the first part, yes to the second. Today the powerbox just randomly reset itself, nobody did it. Maybe power surge or something I don't know, bottom line is a site visit was required because the default config blocks me from accessing it
Tell me a GOOD and VALUED reason for ether1 being blocked from all external access and the only way to get to it is via ether2-5?
A powerbox is an infrastructure device, it's NOT a CPE. There might be a handful of them out there that get their power from the customers site, with the customer attached to ether1. That's going to be a very rare scenario
What's far more likely is the powerbox being installed where there was 1 radio, but now there's 2-4. You power the powerbox from the same cable, then you attach radio's. That's its primary purpose in life, so again explain to me why you would block off access from ether1 out of the box? It just doesn't make any sense at all
ALL other devices on the market similar to powerbox (i.e. Netonix) do NOT block access on any port as the default config, because it would be a ridiculous thing to do. MikroTik seems to think otherwise. Fine, tell me why it's a better way to do things? To absolutely have to carry a laptop up a tower to install it. To maybe forget to configure it up there and have to climb back up?
MikroTik wants people to get more exercise maybe?
