I have used a Routerboard running Mikrotik’s RouterOS to connect to a POST LuxFibre FTTH access for some time. I have been asked in the past to aid with similar setups, so here comes my configuration for the RouterOS CLI.
Note: This setup does NOT (yet) provide access to the Voice service delivered by POST.
In this example I’m using “ether1” to connect to the GPON NTU. (I haven’t yet tested the RouterBoard GPON SFP module, so no need to ask about it 🙂 )
/interface ethernet set [ find default-name=ether1 ] comment=LuxFibre
We also need to configure VLAN 35 on this interface.
/interface vlan add interface=ether1 name=luxfibre35 vlan-id=35
Finally we also need to configure a PPP profile and a PPPoE client to connect to the Internet. Please replace USERNAME and PASSWORD by your PPPoE username and password.
/ppp profile add change-tcp-mss=yes name=pppoe-luxfibre use-mpls=no
/interface pppoe-client add add-default-route=yes comment=LuxFibre default-route-distance=1 \ disabled=no interface=luxfibre35 max-mru=1492 max-mtu=1492 \ name=pppoe-luxfibre password=PASSWORD profile=pppoe-luxfibre \ use-peer-dns=yes user=USERNAME
Do not forget IPv6. 😉
/ipv6 dhcp-client add add-default-route=yes interface=pppoe-luxfibre \ pool-name=luxfibre-pool pool-prefix-length=48 request=prefix
This covers the external connectivity, in a later post I will cover the configuration for your internal configuration and very basic network security.
