3.1 MAC Telnet

Has anyone been able to successfully MAC telnet to an ePMP from a Mikrotik device?

I get an immediate "Connection Closed"

 Yes.  5.26 rb433.  Played around in the config tree a little bit and seemed just fine.

Hi Justin_3,

In oreder to use MAC-Telnet the first time, the Administrator Account password must be changed on the GUI or the CLI. This password can then be used for MAC-Telnet

For mac-telnet access you should use Ethernet MAC Address

Example (Mikrotik software version v6.37.1):

[admin@MikroTik-1] /tool> mac-telnet 00:04:56:C6:F9:15
Login: admin
Trying 00:04:56:C6:F9:15...
Connected to 00:04:56:C6:F9:15

* ePMP command line interface *

>show ip
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 16436 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN
link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
inet brd scope host lo
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP qlen 1000

Welcome back!
[admin@MikroTik-1] /tool>



I've tried this on a handful of SM's (changing the password via the GUI and/or SSH/CLI)

1 out of ~7 or 8 finally let me MAC Telnet after changing the password in the GUI.  When i was connected, i would be able to type 2, maybe 3 commands at the most before getting "Connection Closed".  This was from a Mikrotik RB2011 with RouterOS 6.34.6

Never could get it to work via the CLI via SSH.  This would be my preferred method, because I could write a script to do this across all ePMP's on our network.

I too have the same issue, and wonder if you managed to get it resolved. I'm currently evaluating Cambium for a number of our clients to become our preferred wireless vendor. We work with Mikrotik devices and Mac-Telnet support would be ideal for us, we use it consistently between our Mikrotik devices.

I have a Mikrotik RB1200 with 6.32.2. If I change the admin password, Mac-Telnet to the Cambium E400 I get prompted for username, password and then nothing. Just "Disconnected" in the mac telnet window.


Waht FW version do you have installed on your ePMP devices?

Thank you.
