EoIP Tunnel with Mikrotik Router

For EoIP  three important things:  1)Bridge, 2) Port, 3) Tunnel ID

The EoIP protocol encapsulates Ethernet frames in GRE (IP protocol number 47) packets (just like PPTP) and sends them to the remote side of the EoIP tunnel.

We can create point to point  or point to multipoint EoIP tunnels.

Ethernet over IP (EoIP) Tunneling is a MikroTik RouterOS protocol that creates an Ethernet tunnel between two routers on top of an IP connection. The EoIP tunnel may run over IPIP tunnel, PPTP tunnel or any other connection capable of transporting IP.

                     Point-1 to  Point-2 Tunnel   and Vicer versa
                     Point-2   to Point-3  Tunnel and Vice Versa

Point-1 Mikrotik
Point-2 Mikrotik
Point-3 Mikrotik

Creating Tunnel and also Bridge for Point-1

Creating Tunnel and also Bridge for Point-2

This way we can create Point-3 (Tunnel and also Bridge)

Need to maintain Tunnel-ID same to two point-to-point links and different Tunnel names.

Also need to add Bridge if need to use multipoint LAN accesss.

(We can create point to point  or point to multipoint EoIP tunnels. We need to change tunnel ID for separate multipoint tunnels)

  1. Check uploaded Pictures............

  2. Thanks for another excellent post. Where else could anybody get that type of info in such an ideal way of writing? In my opinion, my seeking has ended now.

  3. If it's not too much trouble see beneath for the most widely recognized highlights of wireless routers, and read on for definite clarifications of what those highlights are, and how they may profit you. best wifi router for long range

  4. A decent switch bit, however, ought to be sharp, ought to hold its sharp edge, and ought to be even; this creates a piece that will last more and will "prattle" or vibrate less during use.asus router login
