I'm after some suggestions on the best way to configure RouterOS/Routerboard so I can access an ADSL modem web config from inside my network.
My main router is an RB2011UAS, my ADSL modem is a TP Link TD-8840 in bridge mode. Ether1 is the main internal interface, it is connected directly to a Routerboard CRS125-24G-1S where the rest of my network is connected.
Ether6 (2nd switch) on the RB2011 is connected to the ADSL modem and I have the PPPoE client pointed at Ether6.
What I would like to do is be able to access the ADSL modem config so I can keep an eye on the physical line stats. What would be the best way to do this?
I think I am right in understanding that because the TP Link modem is in bridge mode and is not actually hosting the PPPoE session, that there is no security issue with using a plain old bridge interface between Ether1 and Ether6... I'm sure there is another more elegant solution.
