I have Mikrotik 3.3, I have a dyndns script, which not works, because of this line:

/tool fetch mode=http address="" src-path="/" 

bad-argument name src-path (line 1 column 52)

What can be the problem?

From the Wiki:

"Fetch is one of the console tools in Mikrotik RouterOS. It is used to copy files from any network device to a Mikrotik router via HTTP or FTP. In latest v5 versions it is possible also to upload files to remote locations."

src-path (string; Default: ) Title of the remote file you need to copy.

From what I gather here src-path needs to be a filename, not just "/". Try to rerun the command and specify a filename.

I try it on ROS 6.10. It work.

There some dumb error that I miss to copy, like wrong line continuation, "[/b]" at end or something similar.
