I have a mikrotik 951G, I connect a USB modem to it, it is visible as a PPP Client. IP is variable. I would like to get to this router remotely, but I have no idea how to do it. I used NO-IP although it works the same way as the DDNS CLOUD option i.e. I can enter the router only while in LAN. I need to buy a VPN to have a fixed IP, can I work around it somehow?
It is a pity that there is no other solution. And what about the tutorials in which the script from noip is thrown on MT to ddns and the schedule is set to check IP every 5 minit? This only works if the service provider is not just blocking external access?
You will easily enter Mikrotik using the address from the Cloud section. You only need to set up a VPN server on Mikrotik and set up a VPN connection on the computer you are connecting from. After establishing the VPN connection, you can use Winbox to connect to MT without any problems. At least this is how it works for me.
EDIT. The remote connection works via WinBox (via the mentioned VPN), but only after entering the local IP address in the field (192.168.XX), or through the domain defined in the DNS section (e.g. for router's IP do e.g. http: //router.dom /, whatever you like, but it doesn't work from a remote location by MAC address (only locally)
