first time using mikrotik,so i' having some trouble.
Got router that directs internet onto a main switch.
I want to place mikrotik between them,so i can use it as firewall to block certain sites,limit flow on some and etc.
If i connect the cable from main router to port 1 on mikrotik,and from port2 on mikrotik i connect to main switch,i can see only part of my networks computers.
That is in bridged mode.
Cant have it like that,i gotta have access to all computers due to file sharing for work.
Now,currently,i connected router cable to port 2,and switch cable to port 3,so i guess my mikrotik is acting like a switch now?
Now i indeed can see all computers on my network,but it seems that i cant block/control sites like facebook,youtube etc.
Could be due to the switch mode?
I tried blocking via content and also via layer 7.
Can someone explain to me what i'm doing wrong?
I am tech sawy,but this lvl of networking is beyond me right now.
