DHCP Server Text is RED

Mon Jul 29, 2019 4:51 pm


Im pretty new to both Networking and MikroTik as a brand but i've setup a bridge from port 2-5 and dedicated ether1 as DHCP Client.
But when i try to add my bridge1 as DHCP server the text just turns red. picture of red text here:

I did run the DHCP Setup, and added network and as DNS adresses.
The only thing i can think of is that the IP adress that my DHCP Client (ether1_wan) is getting is from a Class B network (172.x.x.x) and the IP adresses i wrote on the DHCP server is Class C (192.168.x.x)

This is also my first post here in the MikroTik forum, will be fun watching back to these posts in 4-5 years. :)

Just do and "export" in terminal and paste the script here!
Maybe the bridge1 does not have an IP Address!

Add an ip address to the bridge interface and use the DHCP setup instead. Probably you are missing some steps while adding the dhcp configuration manually
