Mikrotik Winbox for MAC OS

As many MAC OS users, we were fighting with installing Winbox to our MACs.

Winbox is one of the best tools for network management and configuration. The safest way is to run Wine HQ and run native Winbox for windows on it. Here are the steps on how to install Mikrotik Winbox on MAC OS Monterey.

    1. At first, we need to install WINE HQ. It’s available for free on their website.
    2. To install the WINE HQ, we need to install the Xquartz package. Please note that the Xquartz package 2.7.11 is breaking fonts in Windows apps that are running in Wine. That’s why we recommend using the Xquarts 2.7.9. You can get the package here.
    3. When both packages are installed, it’s time to download the latest Winbox from the MikroTik website.

Now we can open the Winbox, it will run Wine HQ automatically, it also allows to open multiple windows and connect to different routers :

There are a lot of useful tools out there that might help you to run ISP business, but most of them don’t adequately meet all needs of Internet providers.
