Sub-menu: /interface ipip

Standards: IPIP RFC 2003

The IPIP tunneling implementation on the MikroTik RouterOS is RFC 2003 compliant. IPIP tunnel is a simple protocol that encapsulates IP packets in IP to make a tunnel between two routers. The IPIP tunnel interface appears as an interface under the interface list. Many routers, including Cisco and Linux based, support this protocol. This protocol makes multiple network schemes possible.

IP tunneling protocol adds the following possibilities to a network setups:

  • to tunnel Intranets over the Internet
  • to use it instead of source routing


Property Description
local-address (IP; Default: ) IP address on a router that will be used by IPIP tunnel
mtu (integer; Default: 1500) Layer3 Maximum transmission unit
name (string; Default: ) Interface name
remote-address (IP; Default: ) IP address of remote end of IPIP tunnel


There is no authentication or 'state' for this interface. The bandwidth usage of the interface may be monitored with the monitor feature from the interface menu.
