First off I have been trying to use this equipment for almost two years but sadly I am pretty bad in networking. Hope some gurus can help me out here. Originally I wanted this to serve as a wireless access bridge (gave up on that) but now I am trying to do the most simple plain vanilla of setups. That is the CRS125 is to act as a Wireless Router similar to those off the shelf Netgear types.
Currently I have the ISP ----> ISP provided modem ----> Mikrotik which serves as the DHCP server & has two wlans (one for internal and the other for guests, but currently unused)
I have followed this guide mainly:- http://www.icafemenu.com/how-to-port-fo ... router.htm
I have also looked thru the forums and other links.
The main problems I have is that within the network I cannot ping or access the other devices (but I understand this is prob a hairpin NAT issue) but even when I am on another network (I have two fixed IPs and internet subscriptions) I am unable to SSH into the server attached to the Mikrotik even with Port Forwarding.
My guess is that perhaps because the modem has the Public IP and whereas the Mikrotik does not have the Public IP.
So where my Public IP is say 18.104.22.168
My ether1-gateway is 22.214.171.124
This is because I set the Address Acquisiton under QuickSet as automatic. Should I be using Static or PPOE?
Within the network all my devices are 192.168.88.X and I have set them to static IPs to prevent them from changing.
Appreciate any insights on how to troubleshoot this.
