The problem is not the backups (they are done automatically every day), but that these devices are in a remote location, so I can't access them physically.

Basically I needed to add a firewall rule that explicitly says to forward packets originated from the BASE interface (this is where I added the ovpn bindings).
Now everything works as it should.

Thanks for your help!

Re: OpenVPN with VLANs

You can only have one server binding per username - if the same username is used more than once you end up with the server binding plus additional dynamic interfaces <ovpn-someuser-1>, <ovpn-someuser-2>, etc. If a connection is interrupted you can end up with the user connected via a dynamic interf...

That rule is for the outer tunnel, not the inner tunnelled traffic. As discussed in post #4 with having firewall rules referring to the lists 'BASE', 'VLAN', 'BASE+VLAN' the open VPN server interface has to be added to these if you wish the VPN traffic to use the rules.

Local is server, remote is client. For point-to-point interfaces you can have the same local address on multiple interfaces. VLANs are not the issue, they only have significance for layer 2 ethernet.

Re: Wi-Fi performance bad on RB4011 - possible misconfig

Okay thanks! This router was pretty expensive and I hoped that I could get a decent speed with Wi-Fi. I saw here that lots of people have problems with it, but I never thought this is that common. In general I love MT products and its configurability (though I never had any Wi-Fi device before). Wha...

Re: Setting up Avahi Reflector in Mikrotik [SOLVED]

What I have tried: adding the interface of the RPI to the guest vlan as tagged and setting up a sub interface in RPI for the guest vlan. However the RPI did not get a valid address for that vlan, even after enabling DHCP for that sub interface

Setting up Avahi Reflector in Mikrotik [SOLVED]

Dear Community! For IoT devices I need to be able to route mDNS broadcast traffic through VLANs. I saw that this is only currently possible with an external server (or maybe a MetaRouter with OpenWRT, but unfortunately my router - RB4011 - doesn't support MetaRouter yet). Not a big problem, I alread...

Wi-Fi performance bad on RB4011 - possible misconfig

Dear Community! I have bought a RB4011iGS+5HacQ2HnD-IN router. I was able to set up everything - got a little help in the forum here - everything working perfectly, except WLAN. I can get maxed out rates (the max I get from my ISP) on ether interfaces, but not on Wi-Fi. I hope that I could get at le...

Re: Simple VLAN setup - Please help!

No I highlighted them because they were missing in your original config. They are now good if you included them. Concur, only have to work on wifi speed and that is probably accomplished with some wifi tweaking. Thank you very much! The config now seems great for me, now I just have to fiddle with ...

Re: Simple VLAN setup - Please help!

The FW rules are fine as they are. I just question why you give the VLAN full access to the router. I would not, I would eliminate that input chain rule. YOu need access as the admin and you have provided that with your BASE VLAN rule. I prefer to create an access list which includes the likely IPs...

Re: Simple VLAN setup - Please help!

In summary, So far I see most ports are access ports to devices that are not vlan aware on the private LAN, and ether 9 being a wired guest port??, eth10 a base port). You have an SFP port which is most likely a trunk port which may carry all three vlans? You have 4 wlans, two private (Atlas and fu...

Re: Simple VLAN setup - Please help!

As for wireless speed, there are a lot of possible issues (other wi-fi networks in the neighborhood are the first one to look at, the channel numbering is confusing, as in 2.4 GHz band the numbers are assigned to 5 MHz wide channels whilst 20 MHz wide ones are actually used as a minimum, newer devi...

Re: Simple VLAN setup - Please help!

Since you don't need VLAN tagging on ethernet ports, using a VLAN configuration is just one of possible approaches - the VLAN tag manipulation on wireless frames is done by the CPU in software anyway. So if you prefer to use the VLAN approach for the guest subnet, set vlan-mode of the virtual wirel...

Simple VLAN setup - Please help!

Hi everyone! I have bought a new RB4011iGS+5Hac router. I want to create multiple VLANs to seperate Guest network from my Private network. Ethernet ports on the router (except eth1 which is used as DHCP client to connect to my modem) should be an access port to my private VLAN (vlan_private). I have...
