Learning RouterOS

We’ve recently purchased a RouterBoard 1000 which we will be using as a VPN server in our office. The documentation is a little complicated for RouterOS novices, so I’ve put this post together to collate some useful tips and instructions.

Finding out the MAC Address of an interface / How to show a mac address on RouterOS

 interface ethernet print

Renewing a DHCP lease (getting a new IP from the DHCP server)

Firstly run

 ip dhcp-client print

To get a list of the interface numbers, then run

 ip dhcp-client renew 0

where 0 is the number of the interface you wish to use.

Adding a VLAN

interface vlan add vlan-id=110 name=manor-core interface=ether2
interface vlan enable manor-core
