HowTo: install MikroTik CHR on Proxmox - FULL setup step by step.

Thu Feb 15, 2024 7:03 pm

MikroTik CHR is a virtual router that can function as a virtual machine.

Here are 5 reasons to use it:
1. use as main router
2. VPN concentrator to connect remotely to your devices
3. to create a separate subnet for your GNS3 lab
4. monitor with The Dude software
5. as a VPN server (OpenVPN, WireGuard, L2TP/IPsec, and more)

I created this guide using Proxmox as a hypervisor because it is an Open Source tool and allows everyone to replicate and learn from this lab.

** Warning: I'm currently studying English so there are some grammatical errors, but I need these videos to practice and learn from my mistakes :-) **

Thanks for the interesting video, fully understandable with your English, writing a single sentence is always easier than a full live recording 👍

There's already an article in MikroTik's wiki.

I personally use the bash script approach. Much faster and easier than any other method.

Here you have lots of scripts to do vm's and lxc's in proxmox.
But little off topic, but it has also script for Mikrotik CHR.

I use mikrotik chr on proxmox to run my dhcp servers off it in my home lab setup(thinkcentre) much more crisp on packets being sent internet connection wise, my dns is managed by adguard which is also on my homelab/portainer/docker/ and my firewall/router is running locally on a Mikrotik hex-s. My wifi is set up using 2 deco m4 access points. Keep up the good work Mikrotik. :)

Patrik that is a very good site i recommend it for everyone, streamlines installs of mikrotik chr and other containers/vms.
