Send a list of connected users to e-mail on Mikrotik

If you need a semi-accurate (more often you run it, more accurate it will be) list of active users on your Mikrotik (including wireless and VPN connections), here is a script for you.

Set your clock correctly and then create a script:

:local ActiveAdmins ;
:local int ;
:local ActivePPTP ;
:local ActiveL2TP ;
:local ActivePPP ;
:local ActivePPPoE ;
:local ActiveOVPN ;
:local ActiveSSTP ;

:local WirelessClients ;
:local HotSpotUsers ;
:global oldlist ;
:global newlist ;
:global ActiveServers ;
:global InactiveServers ;

:set ActiveServers "* Active server list *" ;

if ( [ping count=1] = 1 ) do={:set ActiveServers "$ActiveServers \n Accesspoint"} else {:set InactiveServers "$InactiveServers \n Accesspoint"}

:log error "Active no change"

Do not forget to enter your own e-mail address

Now, create a scheduler which will run this script in a designated interval. Keep in mind that if you run the script more often, you will get more accurate results, but it will have more impact on the router's CPU. So with that in mind, comment out everything you don't need (eg. if you don't have wireless or don't use Open VPN)
