Hello everyone,

I want to see and analyze the traffic of the virtual server installed on vmware with mikrotik.I guess mikrotik needs to work in bridge mode for this.But no matter how hard I tried I failed.I want see traffic and prevent specific attacks.

all my settings are as follows:

First, you need to enable promiscuous mode on the vswitch port groups your routerOS vm is connected to. Since that impacts all other vms as well, I-d advise to create another port group just for this vm on the vSwitch (the one that has physical adapters and has the "VM Network" port group on it)
Second, if I am not totally wrong, you should check "use IP Firewall" in bridge settings in your routerOS vm.

Thanks, It worked when I did it the way you said. -> http://prntscr.com/ue9lec
But now i am seeing the traffic of all virtual servers on mikrotik, do i need to connect a second ethernet cable to the server for promiscuous mode?

Now that's by design, unfortunately. The most pragmatic way would be filtering by IP address.
