Crosspost from Pebkac.io – MikroTik CHR in Microsoft Azure (ARM)

This post originally from Pebkac.io and reproduced with permission.

At the time of writing, Mikrotik’s current CHR build is 6.35rc49.

While purported to work in a Hyper-V VM, there are no instructions I could find to get one up and running in Microsoft Azure (with ARM).

Knowing that it should be theoretically possible, given Azure utilises a hypervisor with the same origins as Hyper-V, I went down the rabbit hole. Continue reading

TheBrothersWISP – The Guys Go To WISPAmerica 2016

Spoiler alert, Mike has some new recording equipment, so let’s see what he does with it.

Mike, Wilson and Miller went to WISPAmerica 2016 in Louisville, KY last week. We came out with six interviews that are of far better quality than last fall in Vegas. The show just started a week ago and we already have 3/5ths of the views of the new videos. We interviewed Baicells, Mimosa, VISP, Trango, IgniteNet and TowerOne.

Here’s the video:(if you don’t see it, hit refresh)

TheBrothersWISP 26 – Mikrotik Newsletter 70, Switches, upcoming conferences

Andrew Cox, Mike(Mom), Tom, Tomas, Justin Miller, and Greg talk about the meaning of life and how routing makes it just a little bit better.

I point out in the video that MTK donated money to, yet another, children’s hospital. I know they did this quietly, but people doing good things for a good reason need to be heard! Big ups to the Tik crew. I also stated that Robert Pera has been doing a lot for the Memphis community, and I admire the hell out of him for that.
Good people doing good things!

Some of the things discussed:
Mikrotik Newsletter 70
Ubiquiti switches
WispAmerica
Wispapalooza

TheBrothersWISP 24 – The lame one without Greg

Quote the Mike Hammett:
“I apologize for the mess. It took us an hour to get started due to hangups on Greg’s end… enough to where he used up all of his time. Then I realized I had to manually control the camera (maybe at my own direction?).

Tom Smyth, Justin Miller, Alex Hart and Mike Hammett discuss:

Cloud Hosted Router
AF3x\AF2x
Ignitenet MetroLinq
EdgeSwitch
TP-Link switches
UBNT DFS
WISPAPALOOZA and UBNT NEXT
RVA-IX and Midwest-IX
Tom’s singing and facial hair”
