We are almost in 2019 and still no UDP support.
Shame on you :?

Would be great if we could get it and also not only sha1 and md5 for auth :)


Keep looking forward to this!

In a similar situation (which involved only us and 1 other party) I was successful in convincing them that only offering OpenVPN and not IPsec, L2TP/IPsec or similar was not very flexible.
What options does Mikrotik have for a UDP (or at least not TCP) based secure connection that I could use to tunnel an EoIP connection?

L2TP/IPsec, GRE/IPsec, IPIP/IPsec, plain IPsec transport.

NordVPN says no. RouterOS is getting outdated.
RB760iGS (hEX S) with the SFP being cooled.
Running:
RouterOS 6.44 / Winbox 3.18 / MikroTik APP 1.1.6
Having an Android device use https://github.com/M66B/NetGuard/releases (no root required)

NordVPN says no. RouterOS is getting outdated.
Implementing such services on a router is silly. You should implement it on your end device so the entire path is protected.

Furthermore, when today's protocol enforced by something like NordVPN would be implemented by MikroTik, tomorrow they
will switch to another protocol that appears to be better at that time. Look, people are already requesting Wireguard
and unimplemented IKEv2 options. It is just not possible to satisfy everyone in a commercial closed-source router.
Either get some open box that you can tinker yourself, or do it on the endpoint (PC, phone, etc).

MikroTik could include an extension possibility in the form of a "MetaROUTER light" that allows the user to run processes that
implement network functions like exotic VPNs, special DNS servers, etc.
I have suggested it before but there is total lack of response, so apparently total lack of interest.

Thank you

Thank for bringing up a thread more than a year old.

The answer was clear - We will not make new OpenVPN features.
Noooooooooo.....

If you really need those features at the moment. Run openwrt image in metarouter and run ovpn from there with full feature set.
A-HA! :D

Introducing AWS Client VPN to Securely Access AWS and On-Premises Resources
AWS Client VPN is a new managed service that provides you with the ability to securely access your AWS and on-premises networks from anywhere, using OpenVPN-based clients.

Does it require UDP? Can't find anything about that.

TCP or UDP is being mentioned in the second part of the video

edit:
oh and: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/vpn/latest/ ... oints.html

(Optional) By default, the Client VPN server uses the UDP transport protocol. To use the TCP transport protocol instead, for Transport Protocol, select TCP.
Note: UDP typically offers better performance than TCP.

Chupaka,

Yes, it should work with TCP too.

From he other side it works with:
- Active Directory authentication
- Certificate authentication

AWS VPN client was mentioned mostly to mention that this technology is used and maybe MIkrotik team will be able to pay attention to it.

I've been patiently waiting for 2 years. I might have better luck trying to convince my VPN provider to make a less secure connection just for mikrotik routers

You should not continue waiting for something that may very well never happen.
As a general principle, when you buy some piece of equipment, from a core router down to your connected light bulb, buy it for what it's embedded software can *currently* do, not for feature XYZ that the seller tells you will be implemented in a future version. If you do the latter, you take the risk that XYZ will not be available over the whole replacement cycle of your hardware...
If that feature is vital for you, then either defer your procurement, get a contractual commitment that you will get it at a planned date, look for an alternative, or - if you have access to the necessary skills - find something that is open enough that you can go the open source route.

I maintain or have installed a couple of OpenVPN setups, and I have stopped years ago trying to terminate the VPNs on the router. I use mikrotik hardware for what they are great : simple, efficient routing, lots of interfaces, and a low price. RouterOS implementation of OpenVPN is deficient at best, so just stay away from it. My usual setup is a Pcengines' APU, attached to one or more of the interfaces of the router and running the open source version of OpenVPN on a current linux distribution. It comes with the latest features, like UDP (just joking...), offers all the configuration options that ROS lacks, and is easy to keep current. Besides, I can script the way I authenticate users, based on any kind of directory, which is much more flexible than ROS' users management.
