User Manager/Getting started
MikroTik User Manager can be downloaded from the MikroTik download page: MikroTik User Manager, choose system and software type and All packages.
Perform the usual router upgrade steps - upload the User Manager package to the router's FTP server and reboot the router.
Create first Customer
If you are using a version prior to 4-test, Customers were called subscribers, so then the first subscriber must be added using Mikrotik terminal (console). All the configuration is done under the /tool user-manager menu.
To create a v3 subscriber or v4-test/v5 Customer you should go to /tool user-manager customer menu and execute add command. It will ask for the username which you will use.
or you can enter this into the command line:
[admin@USER_MAN] /tool user-manager customer> add login="admin" password="PASSWORD" permissions=owner
You can use the following command to change the password for the 'admin' user:
[admin@USER_MAN] /tool user-manager customer set admin password=PASSWORD
After that you can use print command to see what you have added.
[admin@USER_MAN] /tool user-manager customer> print Flags: X - disabled 0 login="admin" password="adminpassword" backup-allowed=yes currency="USD" time-zone=-00:00 permissions=owner signup-allowed=no paypal-allowed=no paypal-secure-response=no paypal-accept-pending=no
After that you can use the web interface.
Use web interface
where "Router_IP_address" must be replaced with IP address of your router.
Use login and password of the subscriber you have created in console.
Note: On RouterOS 4.1, User-manger webinterface is unreachable with an HTTP 404 when attempting to navigate to http://inside_ip/userman from behind a Hotspot interface where inside_ip is an non-NAT'd IP address on the router. Two workarounds: change the 'www' service port from 80 to something other than 80 or 8080, such as port 81. Then use http://inside_ip:81/userman, or use an IP address hotspot users are NAT'd to (http://outside_ip/userman) instead.
