So this falls into the category of "Can it be done?"
We are setting up a mikrotik to handle QoS and have several devices that act as wireless bridges with internal IP addresses for the sake of argument they run on 192.168.1.x/24
The mikrotik is set up as a transparent bridge to allow client devices to get IP addresses from an external DHCP server and avoid double NAT.
Brief rundown: ether1 is the "master" port and QoS is set on the others (using Mangle and Queue trees) with all five ports bridged together. I know I can set a DHCP client on the bridge/ether1 interface and can get the information about that IP through ARP/other means. Is there a way that I can get remote access to the 192 IPs while still maintaining the transparent bridge?
Setup is as follows: Modem ---- Mikrotik ---- wireless bridge AP(192.168.1.x/24) ---- Wireless bridge client(192.168.1.x/24) ---- CPE that gets external DHCP/internet access (69.x.x.x as an example)
I managed to work it out. Our setup uses separate vlans to run the management and data connections. I set the data on the bridge of course, then with a proper IP on the bridge, I used a dst-nat to get from the management IP to the IPs on the data bridge. In case anyone wants to know, here's the code I used:
