MAC Telnet Server

Submenu level : /tool mac-server

Property Description

interface (name|all) - interface name
  • all - all interfaces

    Notes

    There is an interface list in configured in the submenu level. If you add some interfaces to this list, you allow MAC telnet to that interface. Disabled (disabled=yes) item means that interface in not in the list rather than that MAC telnet is disabled on that interface.

    MAC Telnet server already has an entry allowing MAC telnets from all interfaces after MikroTik router installation:

    [admin@MikroTik] tool mac-server> print
    Flags: X - disabled
      #   INTERFACE
      0   all
    
    [admin@MikroTik] tool mac-server>
    

    Example

    To enable MAC telnet server on ether1 interface only:
    [admin@MikroTik] tool mac-server> print
    Flags: X - disabled
      #   INTERFACE
      0   all
    
    [admin@MikroTik] tool mac-server> remove 0
    [admin@MikroTik] tool mac-server> add interface=ether1 disabled=no
    [admin@MikroTik] tool mac-server> print
    Flags: X - disabled
      #   INTERFACE
      0   ether1
    
    [admin@MikroTik] tool mac-server>
