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 http://mikrotikuniversity.com 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: http://www.mikrotik-routeros.com/?p=29)

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: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Flashfig
