I tried Winbox over the wine and it didn't find any MT devices connected to a LAN port and then Neighbour discovery tool which errored out. With little tinkering it turned out that recent Linux kernel advancements what have introduced network device names like "p4p1" is too much for the Windows binaries. I got the Winbox and Neighbour discovery tool to see MT devices over the wifi device purely because it is "eth1".
That issue and the terminal font/alignment issue (http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=68497) does render MT tools useless outside the Windows realm.
Obviously it is too much (is it really?) to ask for a native Linux port of the Winbox, but asking for a native port of the Mikrotik Neighbour discovery tool is not that much - it is just some cutting and pasting some generic code out of Windows counterpart source and that is it. There is no extensive libraries involved or some tricky backend code to maintain.
When should we see it happen or is it too much to ask for?
(Or is there some open implementation of it already in circulation?)
