And this you are saying is the correct way to configure this, and it is not something we are missing/mis-configured elsewhere?
Ah, the correct way might be something entirely different all together.
I'm just saying that in essence i used those two rules to filter out all non-pppoe traffic from being bridged.
If you add bridges between the station and the pppoe router then these rules may not apply.
Can you give me the output of the "/interface bridge filter print" please? I am assuming that is where you entered the rules, and not in the /ip firewall filters area...
Hope this works...so I can move on to other issues
The configuration will drop any non pppoe traffic from being bridged (forwarded) through the bridge where it is applied.
Move along. Nothing to see here.
