Software Update: RouterOS 6.46.4

MikroTik released version 6.46.4 of RouterOS last week. RouterOS is an operating system that focuses on running router tasks. This includes routing network traffic, of course, but also bandwidth management, a firewall, controlling wireless access points, a hotspot gateway and a VPN server. It can be done on the hardware from MikroTik when doing its job on x86 or virtual machines. Before use, a license required, which is included with the purchase of MikroTik hardware. The changelog for this release looks like this:
