WinBox on Mac

Mon Apr 06, 2020 6:47 pm

I just have access to Macs around me. By definition it seems WinBox is available for Windows. I'm curious if there is something simple I can do to work around this on a MacBook?

My current plan is to install VirtualBox, get Windows and hookup a dedicated interface. This leaves me with a problem of finding a legit version of Windows.


Anyone else figure this out already?

That worked surprisingly well. I installed the 32 bit version.

One issue I have a device that is reset to factory without an IP and it doesn't seem to do so well finding devices by MAC address. When the router is giving out a full on IP it works fine. Is this a known issue?
