Change SSH Port on MikroTik Using Winbox

To guarantee the MikroTik security and to avoid any kind of attack, one of the security configuration is changing the port number of the Winbox. To know about ports and to change the port numbers, follow the steps below:

  • Use Winbox application or any other method to login to Winbox. In this article, we will be using the Winbox application.
  • Click on “IP” menu and select “services”. In the newly opened window, you can see all of the ports that are used by MikroTik to be connected online.
  • Double click on the port that you wish to change the port number. Set the number in the port field and click on “OK”.

Note: There is a possibility to disable the ports that will not be in use.
