Two remote LAN connected via PPTP - Bonjour Problem

Sat Feb 11, 2012 5:17 pm

Has anyone succeeded in configuring two remote Mikrotik routers connected via the internet with PPTP, so that the Bonjour protocol works between the two LAN.

EOIP seems an option but I fear that the traffic generated will be very heavy (unnecessary DHCP, broadcasts, ...), I just need the Bonjour protocol to function.

hi
you can do simply
you must run pptp in your router's
set the same ip in two router's
for example
MT(1),ip address=192.168.1.1/30
MT(2),ip address=192.168.1.2/30
--------------------------------------
if your lan in first router have ip address range 172.16.10.0/24 and in second router have 172.16.11.0/24,you must add this route in ip route:
in MT(1): /ip route add dst-address=172.16.11.0/24 gateway=192.168.1.2
in MT(2): /ip route add dst-address=172.16.10.0/24 gateway=192.168.1.1
---------------------------------------
with this config lan 1 and lan 2 connect toghether from pptp protocol.

Thanks, but this config does not seem to allow Bonjour protocol (multicast). Bonjour is the Apple implementation of Zeroconf and mDNS.

Hi Fredgr,

You partially answered your own question. Bonjour is multicast, so you'd need to use something that facilitates a bridge (like EoIP) or does multicast routing. MikroTik appears to support Multicast routing, but I'm not sure if Bonjour will support it.

I hope this at least guides you in the right direction!

Thank you.

I would however like to find a solution avoiding EOIP, as I suspect that configuration would generate far more traffic than requested just for the Bonjour protocol.

I would imagine a VPN connection of both networks, and a multicast configuration that would allow the Bonjour protocol to be routed.

Any help would be appreciated.
