Re: Using a 750G as a network TAP / multiWAN interfaces

I would hardware switch them with a TAP or Mirror port for your monitoring. No CPU load then since you are not wishing to do much with the ROuterOS. It will just make it a managed switch then.

Re: MAC Hotspot authorization ??

Don't know what kind of "bridge" you are using. If its not a WDS bridge (the only way to properly bridge a wireless client in 802.11x), then you can see some sort of MAC NATing. If you are using MT, create a WDS bridge and that should fix the issue! This is discussed in the hotspot section of my book.

Re: Traffic Splitting with address lists and transparent proxy

The information I have is that the proxy system will only use the main routing table, so you can't split proxy traffic over a number of connections. You can split everything else though, and just let your port 80 stuff go out your primary connection.

Re: EoIP tunnels

Keep in mind, using VLANs or EoIP Tunnels does not "reduce" the broadcast domains. Your ARPs and Broadcasts will go accross your entire network and backhauls. I do know lots of Wasps doing this, and a lot that have figured out that they should not send data across their backhauls if they don't need ...

Re: Secure sensitive data transfer

Yes this is not a problem. You can do MPPE128 bit, 3DES, even AES 256 if you wish. And you can share the connections. I would recommend to contact a MT Consultant though as some of these setups can get to be quite a bit to explain in a forum.

Re: Can Ping Access Point from Server but not Mikrotik box

If you are natting the AP, then yep. Otherwise, nope. Cause the traffic on your ap is going though your AP, not from your AP.

make sure the DNS server on your remote network is pointing to your AD server on the primary network. It won't login otherwise.

Re: Blocking DHCP on separate network

If you are routing, then these don't pass the broadcast domain. Hence, they never go past your router. However, the only way they would be passed is if there is a bridge in place.

Re: Can Ping Access Point from Server but not Mikrotik box

Is the AP bypassed? If not, it won't be able to do anything past the Hotspot controller until it is. The server is bypassed, it can ping the gateway .

You have to have a public IP if you wish to address the VPN server on the internet. Several ways of doing this, dynamic DNS services will allow you to have a dynamic IP, and update the DNS servers. Then you vpn into the dns address vs the IP as the IP can change. Second is to have a static public IP...
