Basic setup HELP!!

Sun Jul 02, 2006 7:10 am

I am using the free / home use of RouterOS on an old AMD Athlon XP PC with 256mb of ram and a 10gig HD. I have 4 3com PCI NIC's installed. I first tried to share a cable and dsl connection to a local network. I could ping all NIC's and both ISP gateways from the local network, but I could not pind any DNS servers and could not web browse.

So, O tried to simplify things and just go with one broadband connection, same deal, I can ping to the gateway, but no DNS?

Any thoughts? I am new to this whole thing and the manual was VERY confusing. I am trying to use WINBOX, but the manual is in console... etc...

[@MikroTik] > ip dns print
allow-remote-requests: yes
cache-size: 2048KiB
cache-max-ttl: 1w
cache-used: 43KiB

If you dont have DNS ip in primary-dns: and secondary-dns:
add wham by -

[@MikroTik] > ip dns set primary-dns= secondary-dns= allow-remote-requests=yes

also check

[max@MikroTik] > ip firewall nat print
Flags: X - disabled, I - invalid, D - dynamic
0 chain=srcnat out-interface=Internet action=masquerade

if nothing add

/ip firewall nat add chain=srcnat action=masquerade out-interface=Internet

So... did it work?

My guess is that now you will resolve DNS, but will not yet be able to ping external IP numbers.

If so, I think you need "masq" setup. I ran into the same problem but have not yet resolved the issue.
