Filter outside access with MAC

Sat Nov 19, 2016 11:22 am

If i open one port to the internet, is it possible to allow access to it from internet only from a few mac addresses that i specify?

I dont want to open port to everyone.

Filter from inside to the internet is a yes. Filter from the internet is a no, because no MAC address is send with the package.

So MAC is only available on the side of the switch in the Mikrotik and not at the router side/outside.
Two RB760iGS (hEX S) in series. One does PPPoE and both do IKEv2.
Running:
RouterOS 6.47.beta.x / Winbox 3.21 / MikroTik APP 1.3.10
Android device owners, use https://github.com/M66B/NetGuard/releases (no root required)

No, it isn't possible. You can filter by ip address.

There are not sides in thr Mikrotik. They are levels of the protocol stack.
