IP no changeable but can online...

Tue Dec 13, 2011 12:43 pm

Dear buddy..

if let say, some of the laptop have the restriction that the guest cannot change they ip address.
how we can make the mikrotik to allow them to go online without required to change the ip address.

i mean the ip pool address is different class or ip range than the pre-fixed ip in the laptop.

appreciate it.

You can do this by creating a hotspot on the interface and changing ARP mode of the interface to "proxy-arp". The hotspot will "translate" all addresses, do the DNS proxy etc. You just need to authorize the host (for example - by MAC).

The Hotspot also contains a more elegant method for this, universal NAT. Just configure an IP pool on the Hotspot itself. It'll be used to 1:1 NAT everyone to a valid IP address.
Specific answers require specific questions. When in doubt, post the output of "/ip address print detail", "/ip route print detail", "/interface print detail", "/ip firewall export", and an accurate network diagram.

may i know, is this is the one when i look into the hotspot, it's the "Address" to "To address"?
