I am having a problem with port forwarding from mikrotik to mikrotik to open winbox interface.
I have my public IP and when I enter <publicip>:8291 it enters my main mikrotik router, but when I enter <public ip>:8295 with nat rule to forward it to my <mikrotik internal ip>:8291 it cannot connect. I've done telnet to that port and it is opened and it works. The problem is only when I try to access it through winbox.
Thanks for your help
add chain=dstnat dst-address=myIP dst-port=8295 protocol=tcp action=dst-nat to-addresses=myInternalIP to-ports=8291
I'm assuming you are attempting this from the internet? Is there any firewall rule that would be blocking it?
BTW, my opinion is to not use the standard ports for WinBox. I use non-standard ports for all the services on the router that are accessible from the internet. I have a firewall rule that specifically drops attempts to access the router on the "standard" ports - solely for the purpose of seeing the number of packets attempting to access them. The WinBox port does not get as many attempts as FTP, SSH, and Telnet, but it gets quite a few. I also have other security in place to prevent access.

Not sure if I beat them in submission, or they beat me into submission
