Must be simple, but just getting started with MikroTik!
Initial setup problems.
I am trying to setup a local home/SOHO network using a mikroTik (RB760iGS - HEXs) router.
I currently have a home network hanging off a campus network, and will then move to a direct ISP feed, and need to install my own Firewall & protection.
To do that I have setup the router as a node on the local LAN and one test system under it – as a testbed trial.
(architecture layout attached - this is the "Testing" diagram.)
Using the QuckSet in WinBox,
• I gave it a static (since DHCP was not working) IP for the Wan link (E1) to match local network IP and mask, and DNS addresses
o Why is DHCP not working?
• Left it as router
• Turned off DHCP, left NAT on
• Plugged test system into E2.
I can ping out from the WinBox (router) to other machines on the LAN, but the machine on the subnet below it (E2) cannot – “Transmit failed, General Failure”
But DNS does not work, nor DHCP. The DNS addresses are the same as all other machines on the LAN.
Also therefore it cannot do Update.
(Sorry, some how img does not work in these posts?)
