New iPhone App for Mikrotik / Router (released!!!!)

Sun Aug 08, 2010 8:24 am

Hi There!

We are in the process to develop an App for the iPhone / iPod Touch (then for the iPad and later a MacOS X app , too - we are currently using the Winbox with MacPort / Wine but it so slow... ) ... We are testing right now with 3.30 and 4.10 RouterOS version on several hardware platform (RB1000,RB433,Oldish RB532) since we use Mikrotik primary here in the company ... We are looking for 5 to 10 Beta testers to see how it works with different configurations (iPhones models, iPod Touchs , iOS versions, Carrier Networks) ... please if you are interested send us the UDID , we appreciated your time to find bugs & develop this needed App.

Just some background information about us : We are a company with one MikroTik Certified Consultant and are using this Routers from the past 7 years.

Here is a link to get that info from your iPhone : http://www.innerfence.com/howto/find-ip ... ifier-udid


Currently the Application can do the following Stuff:
Can reads all the info via API from any Mikrotik 3.30 - 4.11.
Can save and add several hosts , edit them , remove them , and check status via Ping.
Can navigate within the same menu as the Winbox from Mikrotik guys.
Can show the Monitor Traffic in real time , Monitor Status , Resources , and a lot of useful information.
Etc.

( Update: here's a new link with a more resolution video :)

You can see all the other stuff at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KVXjhK-6TI

you have "tickbox" and "tikbox" mentioned on the website, which one is it ;) ?

also, I see that for example the logging settings are all shown in one big list, maybe you can collapse the items somehow, and only show their settings once they are clicked? In case there are more items, the list can become quite large. Same goes for IP addresses and some other places.

From a usability point of view, the reboot and shutdown options seem out of place, maybe there is some other solution of placement and visualization. Currently they look like expandable menu options (arrow on the right) but they actually toggle a popup.

Hi normis,


You have right ... is TikBox without the 'C' , thank you for inform us .. we are going to correct that ... :D

We are in the process to correct some views... because as you mentioned some as : logs, address , arp .. can really grow big ...

about the reboot and shutdown ... yes we are going to remove the > at the right ... We put all the menus and submenus in the TikBox equal to the Winbox just to be for anybody more easy ...

regards!

the port field when adding a new mikrotik device is limited to 4 digits, making it impossible to connect to 5 digit ports
You may also want to make a specification that this is the ssh port you are supposed to enter, not the winbox port

program looks good so far, I am still exploring it

Damn, I was a tester and purchased already...8+)

Any reason some of the options under tools are greyed out (like ping)?

Oops I meant API. Thank you for adjusting the port field.

Thank you for making this app, it is such a great tool while out in the field.

I can hardly wait for more of the tool menu to be developed, like ping and torch. Are there any plans for adding a section to view queue/interface/resource graphs?

New iPhone App for Mikrotik / Router (released!!!!) ver. 1.2

Fri Sep 24, 2010 2:36 am

TikBox 1.2 is ready for download.

It includes:

- Device port supports up to 5 digits
- Hostnames can be used as well as IP Addresses in the configuration of devices.
- Port knocking can be used to secure the access of the API port.
- You can rotate your iPhone or iPad to view it in landscape!

Version 1.3 is sent for review, and it will include part of the Command Line Tool implementation, a feature for execute commands as easy as executing them on terminal.

You can add new IPs, change DNS configurations, enable/disable interfaces, undo/redo, and more useful commands are available.

Watch version 1.3 preview on YouTube

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtTYRIaazII

Our developers are also creating version 2.0 that will support not only reading your router, but to make changes to configurations!

Hope you are having fun with TikBox, and don't hesitate to contact us for anything.

What i really miss and what keeps me from buying this app is the lack of wireless scanning feature. I dont really often need to adjust settings that currently are covered by this app, and at times when I infact do, I just use ssh :)
But still, great app this is and at quite fair price margin..

I just downloaded the Tikbox Lite app to have a play with before you release your Pro version, and no matter what I do, I cannot connect to the office RB750G. The ping works, but whether I use the default 8728 port or the normal WinBox 8291 port, I get the following error when trying to connect:

Error
Connection Error: please check address and port

and yes, I'm using the right password in the setup. ;)

Hiton, did you read important notes and help in the app itself? You have to enable API service in RouterOS which by default is disabled. It even has illustrations how to do that. And the only port you need is 8728. The application does work with ROS on any platform. Unfortunately lots of required features are still missing, but I hope it gets better with time :)
