Applies to RouterOS: v6.34+

Overview

The Dude is free software, no purchase is necessary. You can download The Dude from the MikroTik web page, in the download section. Under the required instruction set you will see Server package NPK file for RouterOS, and a bit lower in general section Client installation executable for The Dude client side.

System requirements for client

The Dude client should run on pretty much all of Windows versions starting with Windows XP. Client program does not require much resources so low spec windows computers for monitoring needs will do just fine.

The client can also be used on Linux and MacOS if using Wine or Darwine respectively.
