OVPN mikrotik to mikrotik, no IPs

Sun Dec 29, 2019 8:15 am

Greetings,

I'm trying to test various VPN solutions supported by mikrotik routers.

For each, I create a new pool, profile and secret.
Profile is declaring local IP and referencing the pool.

Exactly the same thing is done for SSTP, PPTP and OVPN (on a non-standard port that is, however, whitelisted in firewall)

All three establish connection, however local/remote address fields are empty for OVPN.
No NAT is used, just routing (and it seems to work fine for SSTP/PPTP).
I'm sorry I do not know how to share configuration script as I'm new to this stuff and have created all that via GUI.

Tried to set IP addresses in "secret",

Any clues? :(

Mikrotik's Version of OVPN has been abandoned for years.

When I first started with RouterOS 10 years ago... OpenVPN was the first thing I had to "Give up on," using Mikrotik. I think i can find the exact post where I asked about OVPN being updated to work with THEN CURRENT standards. "Next RouterOS release..." was the response.

Like I typed... 10 years ago.

Tik to Tik... I use L2TP+IPSec. This works well if one side or both have Dynamic ISP addresses.

In case other people run into issue: OVPN was actually working, it was just UI not showing IP addresses assigned to the interface.
