How to Connect your Office Network Using Dial-up Modem
If you have a dial-up internet connectivity using dial-up modem, and want to have a connection to the Internet for your small office network. For that, you have to install MikroTik router between the dial-up modem and your office network.
This example is useful in remote places, where internet is only available thru basic dial-up connectivity using dial-up modem.
- Before configuring, attach you dial-up modem to mikrotik serial console.
- Assign IP address
/ip address add address=192.168.1.1/24 interface=ether1 comment=”Office network”
- Configure PPP dialout connection
/interface ppp-client add port=serial0 user=ashish password=ashish123 phone=172233 add-default-route=yes [admin@mikrotik] interface ppp-client> print Flags: X - disabled, R - running 0 X name="ppp-out1" max-mtu=1500 max-mru=1500 port=serial0 user="ashish" password="ashish123" profile=default phone="172233" dial-command="ATDT" modem-init="" null-modem=no dial-on-demand=no add-default-route=yes use-peer-dns=no allow=pap,chap,mschap1,mschap2
- By default, It is Disabled, You need to enable it
[admin@mikrotik] interface ppp-client> enable 0
- You can monitor the connectivity status
[admin@mikrotik] interface ppp-client> monitor 0
- Finally, masquerade your office network
/ip firewall nat add chain=srcnat src-address=192.168.1.0/24 out-interface= ppp-out1 action= masquerade
