Hi, if you have 192.168.1.x on one side and 192.168.0.x on the other, why did you bridge between these Networks? Just use the SXTs as router on each side between both, so you don't need any filter.

It make sense to use NStreme if you want to connect so much customer to an AP in an outdoor PtMP installation, so you would not run into the "Hidden Station Problem" which kill lot of 802.11 traffic. A CPE on RB/411 base is also very cheap and have support for all the stuff a WISP need. Regards Lutz

Re: German RegTP Requirements

Normaly you don't have to pay for IP Addresses, so where is the problem? It's absolute easy to tunnel from a central datacenter public IP Adresses to a remote side using Mikrotik, so why do you want to use NAT and make 200 and more hitches in your brain and configuration to fulfil the Europeen law? ...

Re: German RegTP Requirements

Counterquestion:
How can an ISP deliver services without giving public ip addresses to the customers? Where is the problem ro do that? How can you bring up real ISP services with a natted network?

So, for a real ISP this is not a question.

Re: Join Or Bonding Two Multiple Internet Connection INto 1 Pipe

EoIP is a MT protocol, so if you just do it on a single machine, it's not very usefull :-))

So just do MLPPP with an ISP in your region who offers this feature.

Re: Join Or Bonding Two Multiple Internet Connection INto 1 Pipe

1. Check if your ISP provide MLPPP

2. If not, take a second MT system in a datacenter and make an EoIP-Tunnel to that system across each uplink. Than you can bond the EoIP-Interfaces on both sides to one pipe. For this, all uplinks should have the same speed.

But keep in mind, that all DSL-Uplinks in a MLPPP bundle must have absolute the same linkspeed, otherwise you will run in problems. The first test are made with a 768KBit and a 1M Bit downstrem DSL. This didn't work okay.
