MUM Australia – April 2011

So I’m sitting in a hotel in Brisbane after having had a fun filled week of all things MikroTik.


  • I’m now a fully qualified MTCNA.
  • Meeting Normis, Janis and Arnis.
  • Seeing the new RB751N (pics later on).


All in all the meeting was great and I’m sure we’ll see presentations (my favourites were the MPLS and IPv6 presentations) appear on soon!

Many of the planned IPv6 features were also mentioned so I’m hanging out and keeping my ear open for any updates there, specifically in the hotspot and DHCPv6 (prefix delegation) areas.

Now, those aforementioned pictures:

RB751 + USB + High Power 2.4ghz 802.11n Dual-chain MIMO.
MikroTik's answer to the Ubiquiti bullet.. of course this is a fully functioning router thou 😀
RB751UP = RB751 + USB port + PoE for MikroTik devices.

Huge thanks to DuxTel for organising the event and hope to see everyone back there again next year or the year after! 🙂

MUM 2010 – Phoenix

For those of you who missed it, the most recent Mikrotik User Meeting (MUM) was on just a few days ago in the USA.

Videos of the presentations (which are all very interesting) are available on tiktube and I would highly recommend you check out Greg Sowell‘s presentation on Troubleshooting.

Greg has also just finished his Mikrotik Certified Trainer course so will be running for those of you who would like to sharpen your mikrotik skills.

Other interesting things to come out of the conference include:

More IPv6 support (yay!)

Support for Cisco compatible GRE tunnels

Support for using a fully qualified domain name for IPSEC tunnels (removing the need for something like this:

New hardware:

RB493G (Gigabit ports)

New Software:

Something I’ll post on more fully when I’ve seen the finished product: Flashfig, an app for installing configs on multiple routers (useful for cpe’s) simultaneously.

There’s some documentation on it already available here for now:
