Mikrotik V5.12 Released

What’s new in 5.12 (2012-Jan-19 14:31):

*) console – allow to specify blank interval on x86 screens;
*) console – changed ‘password’ command, now can be used from scripts and api;
*) winbox – reorganized window layout to match console better;
*) ssh – fixed interoperability problem with psftp based clients;
*) implemented simple SMB (windows file sharing) server;
Wait wait wait…SMB server?!?!?! Does this mean we can use a USB HD and dump to the Mikrotik? Can I script SMB operations? I LOVE THIS UPDATEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!
*) fixed ovpn-client – client stopped working if it was enabled/disabled at wrong time;
*) fixed ipv6 – ipv6 neighbor discovery stopped working when
interface arp setting wasn’t set to enabled;
*) console – minor fixes and improvements;
*) console – added support for compact export;
*) hotspot – added login redirect through http status 302;
*) leds – added default configuration for R5SHPn wireless card;
*) ppp – fixed problem were remote-ipv6-prefix was not given to user if remote-ipv6-pool was
*) winbox, webfig – sort ethernet interfaces properly when more than 10 exist;
*) added QuickSet to RBSXT, RB411, RB711;
*) user manager – command to create and assign user profile from console;
*) added support for LTE modems (cdc ethernet type);
*) fix gre tunnels on x86 and other little endian machines;

I’ve just noticed a bug. On my 751U when you reset and click the “remove default config” button, it doesn’t seem to remove it…hehe. Not toooooo big an issue, but annoying none the less.

    Also use microSD in RB450G to make simple file server ?

    I’m hoping so!

    What uses does that actually have?

    I’m thinking quick network file dump? I don’t like to open file sharing on my local machine…perhaps just using a thumb drive in your MTK would do the trick.
