Posting Message on Winbox Login

Wed Mar 25, 2009 9:57 am

Hi all

I Work in an evironment with multiple technicians who all have different levels of skills, i recently setup a mikrotik to do some policy routing and bandwidth monitoring and ip blocking ETC. ie, it is a bit more complicated than our usual setup. the problem is, everytime a different technician goes out to this client, they mess with my mik rules.

I want to know if and how i can post a message the instant someone logs on to a mikrotik using winbox, to say something arb like "please do not fiddle with these settings etc"

Thanks in advance.

Either add comments to your rules, so show others what they do (and to remind yourself), or use the Note to show at every login:


[admin@Ms_GW] > system note 
[admin@Ms_GW] /system note> print 
  show-at-login: yes
           note: ""

Sorry Normis

I dont understand the "note" switch you are talking about?
I am a bit of a novice i suppose.
Could you possible explain further?

enter something in the "note" menu, and that text will always show up when somebody logs in

You can even add bigger and more complicated notes, with line breaks

nope, winbox can't interfere with your windows system, it's not a virus ;)

true, Winbox doesn't support these notes. You can deny access to winbox, and allow only SSH. let them learn command line :)

So, out of the box when I Winbox to brand new Mikrotik Router I get a popup window with a page of text explaining its configuration - HOW CAN I EDIT THAT POPUP WINDOW?
