VPN Setup on router: Mikrotik RouterOS

IMPORTANT: Don’t setup your Mikrotik RouterOS remotely. You have to be connected via the LAN interface, otherwise you will cut the connection (access to the router) and you will not be able to access it remotely any more.

1. Update Router OS on your Mikrotik router to latest version (at least version v5.8)

2. Connect to your Mikrotik router via WinBox.

3. Setup the DNS servers manually to Google DNS: IP -> DNS -> Settings -> Servers
8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

4. Write down the default gateway IP address of your Internet provider (ISP) and remove the default-route (Dst. Address = 0.0.0.0/0 routed via your ISP GW) from the routing table. If you don’t use DHCP Client please follow the STEP 5.

5. Go to IP -> DHCP Client and disable the “Add Default Route” option.Mikrotik RouterOS-03

 

6. Your routing table should not contain any default route now. See the screen bellow.Mikrotik RouterOS-04

7. Add new static route to your routing table. Dst. address is an IP address of the VPN server you want connect to. Gateway is the default gateway IP address of your Internet provider (ISP). You should have the IP written down since STEP 1.Mikrotik RouterOS-05

8. Setup the PPTP client according to the screens bellow. Status should appear as connected once you click Apply.
