WinBOX is a Secure GUI/ Graphical Client used to configure MikroTik Appliances.
The Winbox console is used for accessing the MikroTik Router configuration and management features, using graphical user interface (GUI).
All Winbox interface functions are as close as possible to Console functions: all Winbox functions are exactly in the same hierarchy in Terminal Console and vice versa (except functions that are not implemented in Winbox). That is why there are no Winbox sections in the manual.
The Winbox Console plugin loader, the winbox.exe program, can be retrieved from the MikroTik router, the URL is http://router_address/winbox/winbox.exe Use any web browser on Windows 95/98/ME/NT4.0/2000/XP or Linux to retrieve the winbox.exe executable file from Router. If your router is not specifically configured, you can also type in the web-browser just http://router_address
The Winbox plugins are cached on the local disk for each MikroTik RouterOS version. The plugins are not downloaded, if they are in the cache, and the router has not been upgraded since the last time it has been accessed.
