I have 3 machines that I am trying to connect to the sfp+ ports so they can communicate at 10gb speeds with one another - my NAS, proxmox host, and one workstation. I want to use the lone ethernet port as an uplink to my existing gigabit unmanaged switch. I don't need or want any of the advanced features of the Mikrotik.
My current network layout is:
I want to configure the Mikrotik so that the machines connected via sfp+ can pull from the DHCP server in pfsense and everything will be on one subnet. I have messed with this thing for hours and I cannot find a simple explanation of how to do this anywhere, just LOADS of conflicting information. I've tried it in routeros, swos, and have not had any luck due to my lack of understanding how to work with vlans.
Code: Select all
internet | pfsense router & DHCP server | unmanaged switch / \ wireless AP & other machines mikrotik \ NAS, proxmox, workstation
I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, a networking guru. Hopefully someone can nudge me in the right direction for this.
Thanks in advance.
