Run a secure VPN from the office directly to your home, enable parental control, Quality of Service (traffic prioritization for certain needs, such as streaming), specific firewall rules, IPsec hardware acceleration, VLAN, DHCP, e-mail or SMS notifications, and so on. With RouterOS scripting you can automate a lot:
- modify queues based on bandwidth usage;
- complex trigger notifications, such as “Your bandwidth has reached X for Y minutes!”
- backups and setup of additional devices, and so much more!
If you can imagine it – RouterOS can achieve it. You can even install RouterOS on a PC or a virtual machine for even more networking experiments!
We also include a free handy tool for centralized management of all your wireless MikroTik devices – the CAPsMAN. Unlike traditional controller software, CAPsMAN doesn’t require a separate device to run, it can use any existing RouterOS device in your network.
We have been making our own software since 1996. With each new version our priority remained the same: to provide users with the freedom to explore different setups and always have the right tools for the job. Without unnecessary paywalls.
