Manage third party router through winbox

Mon Oct 19, 2020 2:46 pm

Hi , guys.
Im running out os hardware on my CCR1036 bgp border router.
Im thinking about replacing it with an arista router-switch with bgp capabilities.
Im very used to work with winbox and would like to keep using it to manage router routes.
Is there some chance / possiblity to manage routes on arista , though my CCR1036 ?
Perhaps using my CCR as route reflector and filters ...
The idea is to route all traffic using the arista router-switch and manage routes using winbox running on my CCR1036.

Oh ... some idea would be wellcome.
Regards.
Leandro.

You cannot use Winbox to manage an Arista device as winbox is specific to MikroTik. You can use it as a route reflector if you want though and that will give you some visibility....but is that a good fit for your network architecture?

However, you can use programs like Unimus or Ansible to manage all of your devices using a common web interface.
