Enable remote access to MikroTik router

To enable access to MikroTik router’s web interface on the Internet’s side:

  • ip firewall filter add action=accept chain=input disabled=no dst-port=80 protocol=tcp place-before=0

Well, it is not really a good idea to use HTTP as it can be easily read by a sniffer, so HTTPS would be better, but there is a weird error when trying to use it : ssl_error_no_cypher_overlap .

So better leave HTTP for demonstration purposes only and use SSH instead. Enable access to SSH from the internet:

  • ip firewall filter add action=accept chain=input disabled=no dst-port=22 protocol=tcp place-before=0

P.S.

That would be IP / Firewall / Filter Rules in the web interface.
