How to get traffic to hosts with VPN but not NAT?

Tue Nov 03, 2015 7:27 am


Simple question here, I think.

What rule is required on the bottom router to allow 'User 1' to get traffic (single TCP port) to Device 1 and 2? Will dst-nat work when there is no NAT masquerading on the VPN-client router?

For eg., will:
/ip firewall nat add chain=dstnat dst-address= protocol=tcp dst-port=8080 action=dst-nat to-addresses= to-ports=80
Let the remote user see a web-server on Device 2 if he browses to whilst also being connected to the VPN server?

Without NAT on SSTP router it is possible in three ways:

- (preferred) add route to the customer router via Otherwise the response packet from will not find it's way to the SSTP client, since it will be forwarded to the customer router.
- Add via route to Device1 and Device2 routing tables
- Configure the Device1 and Device2 to use as their default gateway

But I think that adding a NAT on SSTP router is the easiest solution
