Mikrotik: Setting Up Remote Winbox Access

If you want to access Mikrotik remotely, you need to make the following changes in the Routerboard Winbox set up:

  1. Select IP – Firewall, and Filter Rules.
  2. Click the + to add a new rule.
  3. Change Chain to input.
  4. Change Protocol to TCP.
  5. Change Dst. Port to 8291.
  6. On the Action tab and make sure Action is set to accept.
  7. Create a name for this rule in Comment such as “winbox accesss remotely”
  8. Click OK.

Note: The RouterOS runs through the Filter Rules in order, so you need to drag and drop this new rule above the last “drop” rule for this to work.
