Locked myself out of WinBox - Help Requested

Mon Jan 13, 2020 4:13 am

Hello all,

I've made a big mistake and am unsure of how to fix the issue.

Background: The Dude server was not connecting like it usually does, so I logged into WinBox attempting to investigate the issue.
Being the Bad IT Guy that I am, I figured resetting the MikroTik ethernet where it was connected would resolve the issue. WRONG. I disabled the ethernet port 2, and am unable to log in.

How do I fix this?? I've tried logging in through the other ports, but I guess they are not configured? I've power cycled but that doesn't help. Unable to telnet since I cannot ping the device anymore since the interface is disabled.

Sorry for the panic, but this our main network monitor and I'm in deep crap right now.

Please let me know if further information is needed.

Sincerely,

BadITGuy

If you disabled port then nothing could help.
If other ports are not disabled then use WinBox in MAC mode and try to access your router.

Lesson: never take actions that could lock you out without first activating Safe Mode. If you get locked out, RouterOS will revert the last command you made after about 20 seconds or so.

Try connect via serial port and enable eth if your router has management port.

Hopefully you got a backup config file, then you can just reset it and upload the config. And if it's your "main router" you gotta have a backup for it!

What device is DUDE running on? Port2 is disabled, your opportunities are with the other ports.. Try at least "WinBOX MAC" not IP, as IP might not be configured.There is even Telnet MAC from another Mikrotik router. .

Is rhere a USB port ??? I found in this forum:"or you can use a Woobm USB Stick from mikrotik
you can connect wireless to that stick and use the serial console over web or telnet."

Your options are, MAC telnet, MAC Winbox, serial port or reseting and running a backup you might have.
