Hi Oliver, Thank you for the tutorial. I have been searching the web for such a tutorial. However I havent found completely what i am looking for. What if the dude is running and you want to upgrade Mikrotik OS and the dude version. How does this work? It might be a nice add to this tutorial. Can you help me?

Will this thing work over the Internet? or only on the local LAN?

I think for the RB750 there is no Dude as it is MIPSBE

thanks for the tutorial - can you tell me if Dude server can be installed on a RouterOS router, then accessed through a web browser as the client? we can't use windows end user clients in my organization, only a custom flavor of linux, so if a windows-specific application is required for non-ssh access to our network hardware, it's not gonna work.
