HEX S RB760iGS → console mode...?

Wed Jul 24, 2019 5:27 pm

Hello @all,

I'm new to this forum, so please don't hurry if i don't post my question in the right topic :-)
Recently i owned a: HEX_S/RB760iGS router with one SFP port and also an USB port type A available.

My question is it possible to connect in console/terminal mode using a specific usb adapter...?

Else what solution to connect in console/terminal mode without using an IP adress....
Because if i connect in terminal mode over an IP adress what's happen if i make a mistake in the config?
For me i cut the branch where i'm seating ?

Thank for helping and if possible provide me a secur way to connect in terminal mode on this router.

Kind regards,
Yann

It should not be necessary, as Winbox (Mikrotik configuration software) features "Safe mode", see https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Console#Safe_Mode (manual is about Console, but it is the same in Winbox also).

But according to viewtopic.php?t=81925 it should work.

You can use Woobm USB gadget to connect to router's console ... I can't vouch that it works with all RB devices but I haven't heard it doesn't either.

You can use USB to serial adapter for console, however console will not be spawned on it by default.
So in case where you already have inaccessible device (like after FW misconfiguration) you can't just plug in USB to serial cable and get console, it has to be first configured to run like that.
WOOBM is probably special in some way where ROS automatically spawns new console on it by default (probably using VID/PID or some other ID).
