Ok, for several hours Im just trying to get mikrotik routerOS up enough to access it from the comfort of my own house instead of at the bottom of a tower 20 kilometers away. But I cant.
This is what I have done, my ISP assigned me a /28 subnet, say, xx.xx.129.32/28
The gateway is xx.xx.129.33, and my ISP said to configure the next available IP, (xx.xx.129.34) to the router, so I did
/ip address add xx.xx.129.34/28 interface=ADSL
and added the gateway in /ip route. so after doing that, I can ping remote hosts, and even while Im sitting at the console, SSH into "itself" using the ip xx.xx.129.34.
But NOTHING works remotely, I cant ping it remotely, I cant login SSH, zip. The internet connection is good, as plugging it into a laptop it works fine, if I give the same IP address/gateway/netmask to the laptop.
Did I configure the IP address correctly? Ultimately the remaining IP addresses in the /28 will be used on hosts behind the router (no NAT). I checked the firewall rules (/ip firewall filter print) and nothing came up, so I added /ip firewall filter add chain=input src-address 0.0.0.0/0) which I assume allows all connections? Im Lost.
