Securing your router

Mon Apr 23, 2018 5:52 pm

https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:S ... our_Router

I am new to mikrtik and trying to configure the hex router. The above link gives instructions but stuck at disabling of mac-server part, after executing the command I get 'expected end of command'

Am I missing something here?

Post your command to see if there is any error.
An example to disable MAC-Server, MAC-Ping, and MAC Winbox on Ether1:
[admin@GissellaLojano] > tool mac-server print                             
Flags: X - disabled, * - default 
 #    INTERFACE                                                                  
 0 X* all                                                                        
 1    ether1
[admin@Mikrotik] > /tool mac-server set 1 disabled=yes

[admin@Mikrotik] > /tool mac-server mac-winbox print              
Flags: X - disabled, * - default 
 #    INTERFACE                                                                  
 0 X* all                                                                        
 1    ether1                                                                     
[admin@Mikrotik] > /tool mac-server mac-winbox set 1 disabled=yes 

[admin@Mikrotik] > /tool mac-server ping print                                
  enabled: yes
[admin@Mikrotik] > /tool mac-server ping set enabled=no

Ok, I did the following commands from the wiki securing your router and received the following...
[admin@MikroTik] > /tool mac-server set [find] disabled=yes
expected end of command (line 1 column 22)
I tried your example for the same and below are the same results.
[admin@MikroTik] > /tool mac-server set 1 disabled=yes
expected end of command (line 1 column 22)
in both cases in the terminal window, the '[' and '1' are both red.

I'm not sure what you're saying. Can you give an example command to accomplish in securing the router?

MikroTik caching proxy command has an extra 'set' in the command on the wiki.
