Re: Permit Winbox

I agree with pe1chl, of course. Permitting only a range of IPs that you anticipate your mobile or other internet would have when you want access, is the way to go. Still, this is kinda ridiculous to always be scared to allow access from the internet, because of such large-scale exploits that can hap...

Re: Problem with Firewall Rule

Depends on what other rules are in effect, their order as well. This rule would block as it says - to this dst IP and this port. Maybe your banking traffic depends in some step on SSH/port22 and is not always in effect. Sometimes things are not that simple as one single TCP connection. As other said...

Re: Redirect from local IP using public IP to local IP

And why DNS is not an option, port forwarding has nothing to do with that. You use domain names instead of IPs. Also if you use Host-based multiple-websites behind one server, you will have to use domains. Well, if hosting just one default website, that is not an issue though. But what you are askin...

I always upgrade the firmware as well when I upgrade ROS on devices I have or had, without problems. Yes, some time ago they changed numbering to match that of ROS. I remember somewhere they advise to upgrade both everytime.

Re: Can mikrotik get all the bandwidth of 100Mbps internet from ISP?

That's just the speed the port on your ONU can do or ISP provided. This router can do much more but obviously it is limited to 100Mbps by your ISP and port. Look at CPU load (of mikrotik) when speedtesting. It shouldn't be over 5-10% for 100 Mbps.

Re: how to access local network

What exact route have you created? I assume you did that on your first router (with the internet which built the 1.XXX network). You may have to create also a 'back' route on your 88.XXX network (on the ac2) that can route reply packets back to 1.XXX network. But the default 0.0.0.0/0 route that hav...

Re: dst-nat with changing port

On 6.44.3 I have NAT rules that change ports from outside to inside and they work Ok.

Re: DhCP server for each port

Why not just separate the ports 3-24 from the main bridge, let them be alone without bridges and just assign a DHCP to each one of these ports (along with addresses and corespodning Networks of course)? Simple and to the point. Then the necessary firewall rules as appropriate.

Re: dual home ap and local network

Then why do you use 192.168.88.XXX LAN addresses? If that's your LAN and you Use NAT then it's normal clients to (must) have 88.XXX addresses. Why using NAT on the MT device?
As I see it, it should just be an AP, disabled DHCP and NAT, and let your internet box manage everything in the 1.XXX network.

Check again IP addresses, I had a case with wrong IP and it took me half an hour until I spotted it. Check again firewall rules carefully and see their counters if some increases too. Check other dstnats for any conflicts etc. Make 100% sure port 55000 is not blocked by ISP. Some ISP's first-line su...

That's right. Just as "contains 192" does not work, this makes it useless in this case. 192.0.0.0/8 would match "192" only in the start of the address, which is what OP wants I guess.
