NAME
mactelnet - A tool for telneting via MAC addresses SYNOPSIS
mactelnet [options] <MAC-Address|hostname> DESCRIPTION
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. OPTIONS
These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax. A summary of options is included below. -n 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. -t Amount of seconds to wait for a response on each interface. If you have several network interfaces, this is the timeout value per interface. -u Specify username. Without this option, you will need to enter the username in a interactive prompt. -p Specify password. Without this option, you will need to enter the password in a interactive prompt. -h Show summary of options. -v Show version of program. SEE ALSO
