phpMikBox: Mikrotik Web-based Management

I’m very new about Mikrotik but so far i’m really impressed by how it works and it’s simple management. By now, there are 3 ways to config this stuff, by command line (SSH/Telnet), Winbox, and Webbox.

The command line is very powerful way but you need to dive in typing the command manually, and sometimes it’s time consuming to doing simple config.

The second, Winbox is the most used way by people since it’s have GUI (Graphical User Interface) so it’s very user friendly, and almost all the mikrotik command available on Winbox. But unfortunately, this Desktop-based app is only available for Microsoft Windows, the fact is not everyone using Windows, even we (other than Windows user) could run it from emulator like Wine, but still it’s not cool way to run this app.

The third, Webbox is the most universal way to config Mikrotik since we just need a web browser to use it, but it’s only few Mikrotik command available here.

So, what we really need is an app that as universal as Webbox and, as easy and complete as Winbox. After some time googling, surprisingly i don’t find any information about this “dreamed” app, it’s quite weird since Mikrotik has many user and developer out there but they doesn’t have this kind of app. I’m sure i’m not the only one to think about and wanted this app.

So? since there no one of this kind of app, why don’t create it by myself? 😀

To make this dream comes true, we need several development app:

By now, i’m still writing the initial code, hope it will be ready soon. For the interface, i’m copying the winbox interface, using jQuery and JQuery UI with the AJAX stuff should be enough 🙂

Ooops, almost forgot, i named it phpMikBox, and it’s interface mockup looks like this one…

Let’s hope the dream comes true… 😀

    @aaN: masih dalam tahap pengerjaan, mohon bersabar 🙂
    Cara kerjanya sederhana yaitu dengan menggunakan API yg sudah disediakan oleh Mikrotik.

    @Donna: Mikrotik itu nama brand yang memaketkan peralatan jaringan seperti Switch, Router, Access Point lengkap dengan OS-nya. Sebagai contoh, kalau hardware namanya RouterBoard, nah kalau softwarenya diberi nama ROS (Router OS). Saat ini Mikrotik sedang naik daun, dan boleh dibilang jadi pesaing beratnya Cisco dan Juniper 😛
