Was wondering if anyone has had success getting Winbox to run on a Mac running Mac OS X 10.6.3.

The 1.6 version of WinBox for Mac is available as a free download on our website. The latest version of the application can be installed on Mac OS X 10.6 or later. The following versions: 2.5 and 2.2 are the most frequently downloaded ones by the program users. Download winbox to the linux server/VM. Install XQuartz on Mac. Connect to linux install using SSH -X [email protected] Don't see any reason why that wouldn't work since you'd just be forwarding the GUI for application which would be running on the linux install.

I have a MacBook Pro (the new 13-inch model that just came out, unibody 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo) which is running Snow Leopard (Mac OS X10.6.3) and an older iMac (White 17' Intel Core Duo) running Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5.. X11 is installed on the iMac running Leopard and I downloaded the pre-packaged Winebox version of the Winbox app from the Wiki and it worked. X11 automatically opened as well when I clicked to open the app and came up to the Connect window. I did not actually connect to a RouterBOARD to test full functionality, but I'm just trying to get my MacBook running Snow Leopard to that point. The Snow Leopard machine did not have X11 on it at first so I put in my Install DVD and loaded X11. When I click on the Winbox app the icon pops up on the dock and the Menu Bar gives me the same Wine options as when I run it on the Leopard machine, but the Connect window never appears. X11 does not open like it does on the Leopard machine and even if I open X11 manually and then run the app, I still never see the Connect window.
Anyone have any suggestions or links to How-To's that get Winbox working on Snow Leopard (as close to natively as possible). I don't want to have to hack my machine to pieces to get Winbox working in OS X. In that case, I'll just create a Boot Camp partition and install Windows, but I just hate to install Windows on my machine for one simple app, not to mention I won't have access to my E-mail, preferred web browser, Skype, etc. when I'm in a board configuring or troubleshooting.
Any help is greatly appreciated.Free download winbox for mac os x


The information on this page may be out of date. To give the routerboard an IP address, hard reset the device using the instructions here:


Standard procedures to do a Winbox MAC connection is so easy as soon as you know how to set a static IP in your windows/linux machine. If you don't have that knowledge, you won't be able to connect and what's more, you sure don't need a RouterOS machine at all.

This small guide works for any hardware running RouterOS. It doesn't explain how to run Winbox on any OS different from Windows. You should know in advance how to use Wine or any other Win32 Loader for your non-Microsoft OS.

If you are using a Routerboard board, you must use the Ethernet port that is POE-capable; MAC Winbox won't work on the others (or at least, didn't work to me). In general, you must use Ether1 port. If you don't know which port is, try on all ports.


  • Know how to set a static IP in your windows/linux/MacOS machine.
  • Winbox. if you don't have it get it at:
  • A straight ethernet cable
  • Everything needed to power on RouterOS Machine.

Detailed Instructions

0. Power On RouterOS machine. Let it load, first boot takes a bit more.


1. If you are using a laptop or a computer with a wireless connection, turn it off: disconnect from Acces Point, turn off laptop switch, or disable interface.


2. Select a ethernet interface in your computer (if you have more than one) and connect it using a ethernet cable to the routerOS machine. Disable or disconnect the interfaces you are not using.

3. Set a IP/subnet mask to the selected interface. The selected IP address doesn't matter at this moment, but should be in the same range that RouterOS Machine will be, in order to save some time after initial configuration.

5. Open winbox.

6. Make sure there's no IP/MAC written in the address field, I had problems discovering MACs when there are addresses in there. [winbox1.jpg]

7. Click the [...] button and wait for your RouterOS MAC appear. Click on it.[winbox2.jpg]8. Enter username and password in their respective fields. By default, username is: admin and there is no password, leave it blank.

9. Uncheck 'Secure Mode'. It can cause some troubles using MAC-Winbox.

10. Click [Connect] and wait for login process to finish.

11. Do a basic configuration to your RouterOS machine. Set the desired IPs and click [Exit] on Winbox window. Make sure to remember the assigned IP address.

12. Configure your computer IP address to the same range that RouterOS, if you didn't set in the same range before.

13. Enter RouterOS machine IP address in Winbox Address field

14. If you have security package enabled (by default, it is), check 'Secure Mode' box to crypt the transmission. It's not needed if you are sure nobody else can get connection to your RouterOS Machine

15. Continue configuration process.

That's all folks!
