A tool for telneting via MAC addresses
This tool enables you to telnet other RouterOS or MAC-Telnetd enabled
devices. You can connect to either a hostname or a MAC address.
If specified, the hostname (identity) will be looked up via MNDP discovery.
These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax.
A summary of options is included below.
This will discover RouterOS or MAC-Telnetd enabled devices. It will
list the MAC-address software version, and uptime of every device
or machine it discovers. To exit the discovery, use
Control + C
Do not use broadcast packets. A tad less insecure but requires root privileges.
This means that ethernet packets will have the specified mac-address as the packet
destination, instead of using the ethernet broadcast address.
Amount of seconds to wait for a response on each interface. If you have several network interfaces, this is the timeout value per interface.
Specify username. Without this option, you will need to enter the username in a interactive prompt.
Specify password. Without this option, you will need to enter the password in a interactive prompt.
Specify the path of the autologin configuration file. The default path for this file is ~/.mactelnet. The format for this file is standard INI file layout.
Do not use the autologin configuration file. Interactively ask for username and password.
