I have to correct myself. I wrote using source adress was not possible on a single router/device and that was not correct. I am using more than one tunnel at the same time so I never was able to use source address. In your case you have to choose one of them, and as you use a range of your local ne...

Re: not working: IKEv2_EAP_between_NordVPN_and_RouterOS

This is not the solution, but you should not use mark-routing when using a single router. Only Connection marking (mark-connection) is to be used. The IKEv2 joins the WAN and has so no separate interface and only uses the dynamic NAT to get the traffic to the WAN. so whats the solution then? the ma...

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)
