RouterOS is an operating system from MikroTik, primarily designed for network hardware based on RouterBOARD and used to manage routers. It is also possible to install the system on a personal computer compatible with i386 architecture, thus turning it into a router.

The system supports a large number of protocols and network interfaces, allowing you to use the computer, depending on the purpose, as a firewall, VPN server, FTP server, proxy server, wired or wireless access point and much more. The user is provided with a selection of the desired components during installation. The WinBox graphical utility is used for configuration; besides, there is a possibility to access settings through the web-interface or SSH terminal, as well as through serial COM-port and HyperTerminal. On the official website there is a large amount of documentation, which developers maintain up to date.

It should be noted that RouterOS is installed on a clean hard drive and cannot work as a second operating system (for example, with Windows). A properly configured program does not require the constant presence of an administrator, and demonstrates good fault tolerance and reliability in standalone operation.
