MikroTik have left the most interesting addition to last. RoMon.  According to MikroTik this is going to be “WinBox on Steroids” as it will effectively allow Layer 2 type Mac-Telnet connections on Layer 3!  We’ve been testing v6.28rc20 for some time, but RoMon was inserted into the final build at the very last minute, so we’ve not yet had time to test this new feature.
