Manual:BCP bridging (PPP tunnel bridging)2
Simple configuration is like this. We have two offices, which are remotely located. Office I is going to be used asPPTP server, Office 2 is going to be used PPTP client. Below you will see how to set configuration using Winboxand CLI.
BCP Configuration (CLI)Office 1 configuration
First we need to create bridge interface and make sure that bridge will always have MAC address of existinginterface. Reason for that is simple - when BCP is used PPP bridge port do not have any MAC address.
/interface bridge add name=bridge_local protocol-mode=rstp/interface bridge port add bridge=bridge_local interface=ether1_local/interface bridge set bridge_local admin-mac=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx//// where xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx is MAC address of the ether1_local interface
Now we can assign local and public addresses to proper interfaces.
/ip address add address=192.168.88.1/24 interface=bridge_local/ip address add address=188.8.131.52/24 interface=ether2_public
In case you use PPP only for bridging, configuration of the ppp profile and secret is very easy - just assign user nameand password in secret) and specify bridge option in the profile. PPP bridging does NOT require any IP addresses,but when normal PPP is necessary, specify local and remote addresses on server side as normally.
/ppp profile add name=ppp_bridging bridge=bridge_local use-encryption=yes/ppp secret add profile=ppp_bridging name=ppp1 password=ppp1
When bridging packets PPP tunnel need to pass packets with Layer-2 (MAC) header included , so default interfaceMTU (in case of pptp it is 1460) is not sufficient for this task. To ensure proper operation itis suggested to overridethe value by specifying MRRU option in server settings to a higher value.
