Winbox is a Small Utility. Winbox Allows Administration of MikroTik RouterOS Using a Fast And Simple GUI.


It is a native Win32 binary, but can be run on Linux and MacOS (OSX) using Wine. All Winbox interface functions are as close as possible mirroring the console functions, that is why there are no Winbox sections in the manual. Some of advanced and system critical configurations are not possible from winbox, like MAC address change on an interface Winbox changelog.


What is MikroTik & RouterOS?

MikroTik is a Latvian company which was founded in 1996 to develop routers and wireless ISP systems. MikroTik now provides hardware and software for Internet connectivity in most of the countries around the world. Their experience in using industry standard PC hardware and complete routing systems allowed us in 1997 to create the RouterOS software system that provides extensive stability, controls, and flexibility for all kinds of data interfaces and routing. In 2002 they decided to make own hardware, and the RouterBOARD brand was born.


Winbox is a configuration utility that can connect to the router via MAC or IP protocol.


Winbox Following Security Features are Used:

◾Winbox.exe is signed with an Extended Validation certificate, issued by SIA Mikrotīkls (MikroTik).

◾WinBox uses ECSRP for key exchange and authentication (requires new winbox version).

◾Both sides verify that other side knows password (no man in the middle attack is possible).

◾Winbox in RoMON mode requires that agent is the latest version to be able to connect to latest version routers.

◾Winbox uses AES128-CBC-SHA as encryption algorithm (requires winbox version 3.14 or above).


Winbox Starting
Winbox

To connect to the router enter IP or MAC address of the router, specify username and password (if any) and click on Connect button. You can also enter the port number after the IP address, separating them with a colon, like this 192.168.88.1:9999. The port can be changed in RouterOS services menu.

Note: It is recommended to use IP address whenever possible. MAC session uses network broadcasts and is not 100% reliable.



You can also use neighbor discovery, to list available routers use Neighbors tab:

Winbox

From list of discovered routers you can click on IP or MAC address column to connect to that router. If you click on IP address then IP will be used to connect, but if you click on MAC Address then MAC address will be used to connect to the router.

Note: Neighbor discovery will show also devices which are not compatible with Winbox, like Cisco routers or any other device that uses CDP (Cisco Discovery Protocol). If you will try to connect to SwOS device, then connection will be established through web browser.



IPv6 connectivity

Winbox supports IPv6 connectivity. To connect to the routers IPv6 address, it must be placed in square braces the same as in web browsers when connecting to IPv6 server. Example:

Winbox

Winbox neighbor discovery is now capable of discovering IPv6 enabled routers. As you can see from the image below, there are two entries for each IPv6 enabled router, one entry is with IPv4 address and another one with IPv6 link-local address.
