I have created an EoIP tunnel between an x86 router and a Routerboard router. They have different MACs but the same tunnel ID and I have assigned an IP to each tunnel. Both router can ping each other on the external address but can ping each other using the tunnel address. I see TX packets on the Routerboard when i try and ping but no RX packets. On the x86 router there is no TX or RX packets when pinging.
I have successfully created a PPTP connection so I know the firewalls are open for GRE.
Does any anybody have EoIP working on 2.9.10? Also how can I tell if the tunnel is successfully connected?
Yeah, it's a simple tap interface that Mikrotik renamed to make it easier to understand the purpose of it. The same goes to IPIP which is a tun iface.
EoIP allways worked for me.
Did you check your input chains ?
The instructions look fine but I suggest you add a note that if you drop invalid connections on your firewall it will not work. Drop invalid connections is recommend in the FAQ on "Securing your router" so I expect quite a few people will be doing it.
