The server (192.168.8.1) is on an interface thats no where near the hotspot/pppoe on the mikrotik.

Ether1 is for net.
Ether5 is for the server (192.168.8.1)
ports 6-11 are bridged to make one port and thats what the hotspot/pppoe is on.

Are you trying to use some kind of free service? If the bearer circuit can support 30 x PPPoE then it would be a lot easier if you could just pay the ISP for 30x bandwidth on one session.... its not free service. unfortunately the guy in charge says its a system wide policy and not worth the hassle.
