Software Update: RouterOS 6.49

MikroTik has released version 6.49 of RouterOS, 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.
