Please help!!!!

Mon Aug 05, 2019 10:57 am

Today I am playing arround with Mikrotik router.
I saw the netwatch function.
Set every 10 seconds will ping a certain ip address.
The timeout is 20 seconds and will reboot.
Now, my router keeps restarting every 20 second there is no time for me to connect.

Please help me out of this!!!

If the device has serial port, connect via that and after boot up paste this command in "/tool netwatch set [f] disabled=yes".
If you know the IP, you could try connecting host with that IP to the device, so ping would be successful, then you can disable rule afterwards.
Last option is to reset configuration.

If your router has a serial console, you might get lucky with access from there and probably a script logging you in and disabling your netwatch item. That shouldn't take longer than two seconds.
Good luck!

My Router is hEX PoE model. Is it applicable for solution 1?

If it's hEX POE, then first solution is not applicable as it doesn't have serial port.
Now you could do as cdiedrich said, and make a script that would log you in and disable Netwatch. Or you can try adding host with that IP. If neither of these is an option, then you have to reset the device.
