Sun VirtualBox Mikrotik 5.9.isoYou can get various RouterBoard on the official website
So, before install Mikrotik on Real hardware, I want to explore on Virtual environment. Iwill use Sun VirtualBox but you can use Vmware Workstation on Windows or linuxSystems.Methode:1st Step Create a Virtual Machine Open Virtual Box & Click on New Click on Next Enter name of Virtual OS (as you wish) ex: “Hamdan” & select operating system type ( as you wish) ex: “Other – Other/Unknown”. Klik on next
Enter amount of RAM (64 MB is sufficient for Demo, you can increase it to 1GB)Click on Next ( No need to change the values)Click on create new hard diskClick on next
Click on finishFinally We have created a Virtual Machine of Mikrotik
2nd step Install MikrotikNote: Before start Machine go to Settings-> Network -> Select Network Adapter (If youhave working interface LAN / WLAN then you can choose Bridge if you don’t have thenSelect host only) Start the Virtual Machine in VirtualBox Home with click on play button Follow the Wizard & click on next
Select installation media (Physical Disk / ISO file) You can download ISO imagefrom Mikrotik official website. Here We use mikrotik-5.9.iso. and then choose thetarget which you’ll be installed.
Finally click on show for executionSelect packages & press i to install & follow instructions
It will format the HDD & automatically install the Mikrotik.Congratulations you have installed Mikrotik but before enter to reboot remove theMedia or ISO image.Now you can access OS by the console, but if you are not familiar with CLI (CommandLine Interface) then you can use Mikrotik Graphical tool named Winbox.You can Download it from official Mikrotik Site at http://www.mikrotik.co.idbut there is problem, OS doesn’t have any ip so you can accessby the MAC. Run the Winbox & click on marked button It is prompting you to 2 connection, just click on MAC Address Enter user name : admin & Password : Block Connect
If you getting any problem then you can assign IP Address to the OS or want to connectWinbox by the IP Go to Virtual Machine Cosole Enter User name : admin & Password is blank so enter First of all check the interfaces[admin@Mikrotik]>interface printIt will show ether1 as interface, now assign IP Address to interface
[admin@Mikrotik]>ip address add address=192.168.1.50/24 interface=ether1(* If you are using bridge interface and you physical interface in the 192.168.1.0/24network then you can assign this ip. If you selected Host-only Interface then assign192.168.56.101/24 as IP because in the Virtaulbox host-Only adapters works in thisnetwork.)
Now again as well as last connect the Winbox by the IP addressThis is Winbox GUI Interface.Congratulations you have installed & access the Fresh Mikrotik OS.Ok, finally we have finished install mikrotik on virtualbox then you can try all of the stepby step following the text. I hope you will get a little help about installation of mikrotikOS. Thank You Very Much….!!!
