I have difficulty in transporting untagged traffic over tagged Ethernet interface with Mikrotik, i tried multiple method but nothing worked , I have following scenario any help would be highly appreciated. MK1 and MK2 are client end routers and have only one Ethernet and one wlan port.
Client( send tagedVLAN3001)--(VLAN3001)tag-ether1-MK1<----->wlan1<---->Mk2----(VLAN3001)tag-ether1-PE1(VLAN3001) Routers-MPLS Core- PE2
Client( utagged)--untagged-ether1-Mk1<----->wlan1<---->Mk2----untagged-ether1-PE Routers-MPLS Core- PE2
Case 1 works fine ,interface vlan3001 does not have any IP and I m using VPLS to tunnel traffic till PE router and from PE router haves another VPLS to transport the traffic till end node. One VPLS between Mk1 and Mk2 and the other VPLS between PE1 to PE2. But in this case I can not manage the Mk1 or Mk2. I need help for following case 2.
Client( send untagged traffic )<-->(VLAN3001)tag-ether1-mk1<----->wlan1<---->Mk2----(VLAN3001+VLAN3002withIP)tag-ether1<----->PE1( VLAN 3001+VLAN3002withIP) Routers-MPLS Core<------>PE2
Interface vlan3001 does not have any IP on both side but interface vlan3002 which is on MK2 router does have IP for management purpose- and interface vlan3002 works fine – can manage the routers but now no client traffic
I tried to transport untagged traffic via different methods like , created a bridge1 and attached to ether1 and then created a vlan 3001 assigned bridge1 as interface to it , then created another bridge2 attached vlan3001 and vpls interface to it; on MK1 router but it does not work. I used same setup in case with eoip on clinet routers but nothing worked.
Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
