WinBox is a small utility that allows administration of Mikrotik RouterOS using a fast and simple GUI. It is a native Win32 binary, but can be run on Linux and Mac OSX using Wine.

All WinBox interface functions are as close as possible to Console functions. Some of advanced and system critical configurations are not possible from WinBox, like MAC address change on an interface.

Note: WinBox is obviously freeware, but no details about the license are available either on the application website or in the application itself.

To install WinBox, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install winbox

To upgrade WinBox, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade winbox

Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
