MikroTik LAB

If you’ve grabbed a copy of the rsc files to replicate my lab setup I’ll give you a few pointers with regard to setting up the VMs.

The hyper-visor I used was VirtualBox. Get it here: https://www.virtualbox.org/.

I used RouterOS 6.18 but any recent version should work fine.

The VM had 64MB ram and 128MB disk. I recommend you set these up to be sensible defaults for your needs.

I had two network connections:

  • Adapter 1 was Host Only (for internal communications)
  • Adapter 2 was Bridged (for management)

That should get you going.
