Warning: This guidance is kept for archival purpose and information in it are not updated. Latest RouterOS v6 changes you can find here!
- Updated drivers and Kernel (to linux-3.3.5)
- Initial OpenFlow support
- New LCD Touch screen features
- Hotspot mac-cookie login method (mostly used for smartphones)
- Configurable Kernel options in /ip settings and /ipv6 settings menu (ip forward, rp filters etc)
- ARP timeout can be changed in /ip settings
- Neighbor discovery can be disabled by default on dynamic interfaces in /ip neighbor discovery settings menu
- To enable/disable discovery on interface you now must use command: "/ip neighbor discovery set (interface number/name) discover=yes/no".
- Show last-logged-in in users list
- GRE supports all protocol encapsulation, not just ip and ipv6;
- Slave flag shows up for interfaces that are in bridge,bonding or switch group;
- SSH client has new property output-to-file, useful for scripting.
- Support for API over TLS (SSL)
- API is now enabled by default
- DNS retry queries with tcp if truncated results received
- DNS rotates servers only on failure
- DNS cache logs requests to topics "dns" and "packet";
- WebFig now supports RADIUS authentication (via MS-CHAPv2)
- New Web Proxy parameter max-cache-object-size
- Increased Max client/server connection count for Web Proxy
- If NTP client is enabled, logs show correct time and date when router was rebooted.
- 802.1Q Trunking with Atheros switch chip
- SSTP can now force AES encryption instead of default RC4
- PPP profile now has bridge-path-cost amd bridge-port-priority parameters
- Secrets shows last-logged-out date and time
- Hotspot and PPP now support multiple address-lists
- Only 2 change mss mangle rules are created for all ppp interfaces;
- New all-ether,all-wireless,all-vlan,all-ppp interface matchers
- Priority matcher
- New change-dscp options from-priority and from-priority-to-high-3-bits
- New Mangle Actions snif-tzsp,snif-pc
- Wireless Channels options - creating custom channel lists
- DHCP client now support custom options
- DHCP v4 client now have special-classless option for add-default-route parameter
- Possibility to add DHCP relay agent information option (Option 82)
- DHCPv6 DNS option support
- DHCPv6 Relay support
- DHCP server RADIUS framed route support
- DHCP option configuration per lease
Significantly improved Road Warrior setup usage with Mode Configuration support.
Detailed configuration example can be found in the manual.
Full list of new features:
- Mode Conf support (unity split include, address pools, DNS)
- Ipsec peer can be set as passive - will not start ISAKMP SA negotiation
- Xauth support ( xauth PSK and Hybrid RSA)
- Policy templates - allow to generate policy only if src/dst address, protocol and proposal matches the template
- Peer groups
- Multiple peers with the same IP can be used.
- For peers with full IP address specified system will auto-start ISAKMP SA negotiation.
- generate-policy now can have port-strict value which will use port from peer's proposal
- Source address of phase1 is now configurable
- CA keys are no more cached, every CA operations now requires a valid CA passphrase. Use set-ca-passphrase for scep server to cache CA key in encrypted form;
- For certificates marked as trusted=yes, CRL will be automatically updated once in an hour from http sources;
- Ipsec and SSTP respects CRLs
- SCEP server/client support
- Certificate manager now can issue self signed certificates.
- New OSPF parameter use-dn. Forces to ignore DN bit in LSAs.
- Changed BGP MED propagation logic, now discarded when sending route with non-empty AS_PATH to an external peer
- Connected routes become inactive when Interface goes down. It also means that dynamic routing protocols will stop distributing connected routes without Active flag.
- improved overall router performance when simple queues are used
- improved queue management (/queue simple and /queue tree) - easily handles tens of thousands of queues;
- /queue tree entries with parent=global are performed separately from /queue simple and before /queue simple;
- new default queue types: pcq-download-default and pcq-upload-default;
- simple queues have separate priority setting for download/upload/total;
- global-in, global-out, global-total parent in /queue tree is replaced with global that is equivalent to global-total in v5;
- simple queues happen in different place - at the very end of postrouting and local-in chains;
- simple queues target-addresses and interface parameters are joined into one target parameter, now supports multiple interfaces match for one queue;
- simple queues dst-address parameter is changed to dst and now supports destination interface matching;
Compact configuration export
Now by default configuration is exported in compact mode.
To make full config export verbose parameter should be used:
/export verbose file=myConfig
- FastPath support
- Renamed e-mail tls to start-tls and added it as a configurable parameter
- Fetch tool now has HTTPS support
- Added ipv6 header support for traffic generator
- Playback pcap files into network using new trafficgen inject-pcap command
- NAND Flash can be Partitioned on routerboards and separate RouterOS versions can be installed on each of the partitions
