No internet at this time. This is just a test setup.
I have the PC getting it's IP address via dhcp from the linksys router's lan side. The Linksys router's wan side is set up as static IP = 10.10.10.10, subnet mask = 255.255.255.0, gateway = 10.10.10.1
the wan side is connected to the mikrotik RB411 ether1, no wireless card installed
there is a bridge = bridge1 on the mikrotik board
Bridge1 has an IP address of 10.10.10.5/24
I built this simple test setup because I have a load of mikrotik boards in my network, all are "isolated" from my office PC. Isolated = my PC goes through a router onto the internet. My networks are scattered all over the state of Oklahoma. Each network gets onto the internet using a DSL router. Here's a sample:
My PC - router - DSL line --- internet --- dsl line - router - mikrotik board - customers
I have vpn tunnels setup in the routers, and can "see" my customers fine from my pc. However, I cannot see the mikrotik boards out there. I have to be physically on the same network to see those boards. I would like to be able to see and manage the mikrotik boards remotely using the above type of setup.
My networks are up to 50 miles away from my pc, so remote management is really a necessity.
I have tried forwarding port 8291, ports 8200 to 22000, nothing works. I would prefer to use winbox or similar to do all this.
