Connection Setup Instructions

Setup port forwarding using Mikrotik router

The recommended procedure is to create one secure access-list named “SmartGate” which includes the SmartGate servers IP addresses that will be permitted to communicate with the OLTs.

The following example uses a “dummy” OLT IP address. Replace with your OLT private IP and adapt the script to match your network scenario.
# Create an address-list with SmartGate servers

/ip firewall address-list add list=SmartGate

If you are not using Mikrotik, please contact support for the complete list of IPs to be allowed.

# Setup port forwarding.
Ex.: For packets received from source-address-list SmartGate the action will be dst-nat to => OLT_Private_IP_Address
To use more OLTs on the same public IP address, increment each external port (Ex. for OLT2 : 2334, 2323, 2162)

/ip firewall nat add action=dst-nat chain=dstnat \
   dst-port=2333 protocol=tcp src-address-list=SmartGate \
   to-addresses= to-ports=23 comment=SmartGate
/ip firewall nat add action=dst-nat chain=dstnat \
   dst-port=2322 protocol=tcp src-address-list=SmartGate \
   to-addresses= to-ports=22 comment=SmartGate
/ip firewall nat add action=dst-nat chain=dstnat \
   dst-port=2161 protocol=udp src-address-list=SmartGate \
   to-addresses= to-ports=161 comment=SmartGate

Do not forget to replace with your OLT private IP address.
# Allow the OLT to contact SmartGate servers

/ip firewall nat add action=masquerade chain=srcnat \
   dst-address-list=SmartGate comment=SmartGate
