How do I perform a quick check of listening ports on MikroTik devices?

Sat Nov 04, 2017 1:44 pm

Is there a "netstat"-like or "ss"-like CLI command available in RouterOS?

This page lists the default services and ports used.

I've asked about ports currently in listening state, not just any port list.
And for an example, "/ip services" doesn't list ports for DNS service (53/tcp, 53/udp) provided by MikroTik device.

I'd suggest using NMAP to discover open ports on the device from your PC.
nmap 192.168.88.1
Substitute '192.168.88.1' with the LAN IP address of your router. You can perform the same check from outside the network on a cellphone hotspot as well using your WAN IP address, but beware that Android hotspots show false positives for port 80 and something else I can't remember off the top of my head.

Hope that helps.

The device will only listen ons ports, 8728 (api), 8729(api-ssl), 21,22,23,8291(winbox) and port 80. (Only if its enabled in Ip --> services)

If allow remote requests is enabled in ip dns the in will listen on port 53 udp.
There you go then you touched something ;-) : it only takes a change in wind direction to screw with your nat :-)
