      Thanks a lot Greg!

    6. Brad / Jan 2 2010

      Thanks… I’m new to Mikrotik and networking. I watched the Intro to Networking and Mikrotik Basics — both were excellent. I found the Mikrotik Basics very informative as it taught me “why” several of the Winbox selections are configured. It would be nice to see more videos πŸ™‚
      Thanks again… MUCH appreciated…

    7. Greg / Jan 2 2010

      You guys are the reason I do it!
      Thanks for leaving a comment. πŸ™‚

    8. Tim / Jan 6 2010

      Thanks again Greg !!
      Now I need to learn about OSPF and Multicast routing to tie several Tik boxes together. πŸ™‚

    9. Greg / Jan 6 2010

      NP Tim. That sounds like you put in a vote for the next class to be over dynamic routing…which sounds like a pretty good idea to me. πŸ™‚

    10. Reko / Jan 8 2010

      Thanks a lot, very usefull tutorials

    11. Mohamed Hany / Jan 14 2010

      Well, i have to admit that this video series is indeed very helpful and handy, Thanks alot Greg. and well done!

      I got a suggestion too if i may, try to represent what you gonna teach in points at the beginning of the video, that will help eliminate the “randomness” feeling watching the videos.
      For the next video, i vote for Hotspot solution and/or Qos (queues)!

      Thanks again πŸ™‚

    12. Greg / Jan 15 2010


      Thanks, I’ll keep that in mind for the next.

    13. Stan Anderton / Feb 2 2010

      Keep up the good work, Greg! It keeps getting better. I always enjoy visiting your site. I wish I had more time to keep up on all of your content. I’ll be in touch soon.

    14. Greg / Feb 2 2010


      Thank you sir…heh. I look forward to hearing from you again soon.

    15. Robert / Feb 18 2010

      Any news on the dynamic routing topic?


    17. Greg / Mar 15 2010

      Just released it πŸ˜‰

      Thank YOu Very..much..God Bless you!!!

      Ha Michael, no problem πŸ˜‰

    20. Martin Berard / Apr 9 2010

      Thank you so much! Nice work. Would love a nice video tutorial on VRRP.

    21. Greg / Apr 9 2010

      Thanks Martin. I’ll add that to the list. πŸ™‚

    22. Dave / Apr 14 2010


      Thanks for taking the time to put these tutorials together.

      I have an ipsec tunnel between a PIX and MT working fine. I need to be able to run a DHCP Relay to a dhcp server sitting behind the PIX. I can ping the DHCP server from the MT and a static IP on the interesting subnet. It looks like the MT is using the source IP of the WAN interface when sending the relay, so it does not get handled as interesting traffic. Instead it seems to use the default route, which is the internet.

      Was wondering if you had any thoughts as how to influence the DHCP relay source IP..


    23. David Ryan / Apr 23 2010

      Tremendous work Greg!

      Invaluable info.

    24. Greg / Apr 23 2010


      Since a relay should convert your broadcast packet into a directed packet, perhaps you can enter a nat statement to cover the traffic. If it appears to be sourced from the tunnel, perhaps that will do the trick.

      Alternately, you can set an additional policy that would allow the wan IP of the MTK to traverse the tunnel when destined to the DHCP server.

      See if any of that works for you. I would try the policy one first. Be sure to use “unique” if you have multiple policies to the same destination and to update the acl on the pix.

      thanks a lot from Colombia. your videos are great and hope you are okay. nice mood. πŸ™‚

    26. Jack / May 21 2010

      God bless you indeed !! πŸ™‚
      Great job !

      Suggestion for the next video :
      hotspot config with dhcp, trafic shaping, user management, p2p block, … πŸ™‚

    27. Greg / May 21 2010


      You want your cake and eat it too? hehehe

    28. Ndubueze / May 27 2010

      Great job Greg.

      I am new to Mikrotik and actually got very confused with some topics but after going through the resources on your web site, it is all clear now. Can you please do something on bandwidth management, caching and hotspots.

      Kind regards,

    29. Greg / May 27 2010

      Glad they helped.

      Those are all on the list πŸ˜‰

    30. Mike / May 30 2010

      I watched 3 of the videos above and they were all excellent and gave me a good understanding of MikroTik basics. However, I started a new WISP and didn’t have the time to gain a deeper understanding so I hired Greg as a consultant. He configured my two MT493s remotely including all the networks, DHCP pools, routing and security in a very short time and did it for a very reasonable price. I’m planning to use his expertise more in the future as we grow. Thanks Greg!

      Excellent travail merci

    33. Tj / Jun 20 2010

      Hi Greg,

      Nice tutorials here. Anyway, we’re looking to build MPLS network based on all Mikrotik & Linux hardwares, radios, etc. Have you tried MPLS on Mikrotik?


    34. Greg / Jun 21 2010


      I’ve done a little with the MTK MPLS, though not in a fashion most people are familiar with. I didn’t have it traverse one MTK to another.

    35. Peter / Nov 16 2010

      Thank you for your effort.

      I have actualy done connection β€’IPSec – Mikrotik to Mikrotik
      and it worked just as you described.

      I will do more today.

      God bless you,

      Nice tutorial, this very useful for us

    38. Richard / Dec 2 2010

      Thanks for the tutorials! I’ve watched all 5 and they are great. Are you still planning one on QoS? (You mentionned that in the security one.)

    39. Greg / Dec 3 2010


      I’ve since run thin on time, though if I do another video it will most likely be a QoS one. Perhaps during the holidays something will happen…though I wouldn’t hold my breath πŸ˜‰

    49. Michael / Apr 14 2011

      Thanks Greg!!

      I’m currently getting my feet wet and your videos / presentations are letting me wade into deeper water! Would love to do a in person training. Any plans for classes in the Kansas City area?



    50. Greg / Apr 14 2011


      I don’t see myself in the Kansas City area any time soon…unless you wanted to organize a private training. This can be done via my training website,
