tik4net

Unique complex mikrotik API communication solution.

The tik4net project provides easy to use API to connect and manage mikrotik routers via mikrotik API protocol. It has 3 parts:

  • Basic ADO.NET like API - to perform R/W access to mikrotik in both sync and async code (tik4net.dll).
  • O/R mapper like highlevel API with imported mikrotik strong-typed entities. (tik4net.objects.dll)
  • Tools - semi-automatic generators of custom entity C# code (for usage with tik4net.objects.dll)

Features

  • Easy to use with O/R mapper like highlevel API
  • Low level access supported by low level API
  • Stable interface and backward compatibility
  • Broad range of .NET runtimes supported (including .NET core 2 and Xamarin)
  • New mikrotik v.6.43 login process supported
  • Includes MNDP discovery helper
  • Easy to understand and well documented code

Binaries

Stable

In development (v 3.6)

  • Download as sources.

Getting started and documentation

Examples:

   using (ITikConnection connection = ConnectionFactory.CreateConnection(TikConnectionType.Api_v2)) // Use TikConnectionType.Api for mikrotikversion prior v6.45
   {
      connection.Open(HOST, USER, PASS);
   ITikCommand cmd = connection.CreateCommand("/system/identity/print");
   var identity = cmd.ExecuteScalar(); 
   Console.WriteLine("Identity: {0}", identity);
   var logs = connection.LoadList<Log>();
   foreach (Log log in logs)
   {
       Console.WriteLine("{0}[{1}]: {2}", log.Time, log.Topics, log.Message);
   }
   var firewallFilter = new FirewallFilter()
   {
      Chain = FirewallFilter.ChainType.Forward,
      Action = FirewallFilter.ActionType.Accept,
   };
   connection.Save(firewallFilter);
   ITikCommand torchCmd = connection.CreateCommand("/tool/torch", 
      connection.CreateParameter("interface", "ether1"), 
      connection.CreateParameter("port", "any"),
      connection.CreateParameter("src-address", "0.0.0.0/0"),
      connection.CreateParameter("dst-address", "0.0.0.0/0"));

  torchCmd.ExecuteAsync(response =>
      {
         Console.WriteLine("Row: " + response.GetResponseField("tx"));
      });
  Console.WriteLine("Press ENTER");
  Console.ReadLine();
  torchCmd.Cancel();

Looking for help

  • Importing other classes
  • Looking for betatesters

Roadmap & future

  • create highlevel classes for all mikrotik entities (you can still generate your own classes)
  • create tiklink project - easy use-to wrapper over mikrotik router with fluent API
  • convert examples to separate unittests (in progress)
  • create and contribute to tiktop (see linux iftop) project

REMARKS: This project is rewritten version of deprecated tik4net at googlecode (last version was 0.9.7.)
