iVPN is a VPN service that I’ve been using to protect my privacy online. I have it configured on my laptop and phone and it’s pretty handy, especially when I’m on public wifi. But if I want to protect my entire home network? Is it possible to configure a Mikrotik router to use iVPN? Yes, it is! I will quickly go over the steps you need to take to configure your Mikrotik to use iVPN Wireguard servers.
“I upgraded to a new Mac M1 chip and now I can’t run Winbox anymore”; “I switched from Windows or Linux to the new Macs and I cannot access my Mikrotik router using Winbox anymore”; “I’m trying to run the Winbox using wine on my Mac M1 without success”; If you find yourself in one of these situations, this simple and basic step-by-step may can help you. Since I switched to the not so new M1 chip, I couldn’t run the Winbox using Wine.
According to RFC 3442, is possible to assign static routes using DHCP option 121. This is a very useful resource in all kind of environments, but most people doesn’t know about it. Basically, using option 121 on your DHCP server, you can deliver static routes to dhcp-clients. Let’s see how to do this using Mikrotik: ip dhcp-server option add code=121 name=route_192.168.11 value=0x18c0a80ba010101 And set this option in your network config: /ip dhcp-server network add address=192.

Tenho uma “pseudo-paranóia” de manter meus sistemas e softwares sempre atualizados; isso quando não uso versões de desenvolvimento ou beta só para poder estar em contato com as ideias e soluções mais recentes dos desenvolvedores. Agora que tenho um Mikrotik em casa não ia ser diferente. Até testei um tempo a versão 6.37rc mas confesso que gerou mais dores de cabeça do que “oportunidades de testar novos recursos”; Mas claro que isso não iria me desanimar.
