Source ip addr in ping probe?

Thu Jan 14, 2021 9:51 am

Hi forum members!

I have a problem with The Dude (installed on the same router) remote pings over the vpn connection originating from MT router. Source ip address is wrong (from interface instead of the bridge) so no replies are received...

Is there any way to create new or modify existing ping probe to specify source interface or ip addr?

Or shall I deal with this issue on the routeros level?

All ideas and comments are appreciated... Thanks!

You need to Src-nat it e.g. something like this:
/ip firewall nat add action=src-nat chain=srcnat dst-address-list=myvpnlist src-address-type=local to-addresses=a.b.c.d
filling in as appropriate.
