login failure only from Winbox

Tue Feb 11, 2020 11:24 am

Something super odd is happening to me.

The device is hAP ac2 running 6.46.2. My last successful login was 3 days ago. Since then I didn't do anything.

Now when I try to login via Winbox I am getting a login failure. I thought I messed up the credentials after trying a 100 times but I just decided to do a telnet test and boom!!! it worked with the same credentials.

Via telnet, I even added a new user with a new password and again it doesn't allow me to login via Winbox. I have a feeling this is a bug.

I don't have any filtering enabled for Winbox service.

Any ideas?

Make sure you have the latest version of Winbox.

or ... are you copying and pasting the password maybe?

Had the same thing. I disabled via SSH the winbox ip service en enabled it again. That worked for me.
