Description

In every network we require to have routing. However, if routing is not configured correctly then we may face a lot of problems. For this reason, I have designed this course to show you how you can configure routing in MikroTik routers to keep your network operational, functional and scalable.

This course is ideal for students & professionals who are interested to learn routing in MikroTik. Part of this course will be dedicated to show how youcan use GNS3 emulator software with CHR image from Mikrotik to be able to design Labs for testing purposes. This solution is the best for those who would like to learn Routing in MikroTik but do not want to invest in buying couple of MikroTik routers to be able to follow this course.

Topics that will be covered in this course are: What is routing, install GNS3 with CHR image, IGP vs EGP, Distance vector vs Link State, Static route, default static route, floating static route for failover, ECMP for load-balancing & RIP Routing Protocol in depth.

This course will contains 30% theoretical part and 70% LABs with real scenarios configuration on MikroTik routers. The labs will be based on step-by-step configuration with a testing part by end of each lab to check if the configuration that we have done is working the way we want. Total number of LABs are 10 in this course, so be ready for a lot of fun with MikroTik Routing.


Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for students who would like to learn more about Routing and how to apply it on Mikrotik routers
  • This course is for professional to help them designing Routing in their jobs using Mikrotik routers
  • This course is for anyone who would like to learn Routing concepts and how to apply them on Mikrotik routers

Why we need routing in our network?
2 Lectures 14:26

In this lecture, you will see the points that will be discussed about Routing in the upcoming lecture.

Preview 01:16

The main questions that is always asked: "Why do we need routing in our network?"

In in this lecture, I am going to explain to you the importance of routing in our network. We will have an overview about the OSI model and see in which layer does routing and switching happens, then we will see what would be the problems in our network didn't have routing. 

By end of this lecture, you will be convinced that Routing is an essence in our networks.

Running MikroTik RouterOS on GNS3 with QEMU
4 Lectures 44:45

This is an introduction video of Section number 2 explaining what we are going to do in the upcoming lectures of this section.

MikroTik on GNS3 - Introduction
03:23

In this course, all our labs will be made on GNS3 emulator software integrated with QEMU and MikroTik CHR RouterOS which all are free of charge.

In this lecture, I am going to show you how you can download and install GNS3 on your PC, install MikroTik CHR RouterOS then configure them with QEMU to be able to run a MikroTik RouterOS on GNS3. We will do our first GNS3 lab in this lecture.

Install GNS3 with MikroTik CHR RouterOS image - LAB1
19:21

After having downloading and installing all softwares and CHR RouterOS image and make GNS3 works, it is important to be able to connect to the MikroTik Router on GNS3 from our real PC to be able to run Winbox for our Labs. 

In this lecture, we will show you how you can connect your real PC to the MikroTik GNS3 router and test if we are able to connect via Winbox tool.

Connect your real PC to GNS3 - Part1 - LAB2
13:46

After being able to connect to R1 on GNS3 from our PC, it is important to all to connect to all other MikroTik GNS3 routers available in our GNS3 lab.

In this lecture, we are going to show you how to configure Romon on all GNS3 MikroTik routers, and make R1 an agent Romon router to be able from it to connect to all other MikroTik routers in GNS3, then test if we are able to open winbox tools on all MikroTik routers of our GNS3 network diagram.

Static Route vs Dynamic Route
3 Lectures 30:24

This is an introduction video showing the main points that are going to be discussed in the upcoming lectures regarding the difference between static & dynamic routes.

Static Route vs Dynamic Route - Introduction
01:14

In this lecture, we are going to talk in details about Static Route and about Dynamic Route and see what are the difference between both routes.

In the static route explanation part, we are going to speak about about static default route and where to be used.

Static Route vs Dynamic Route - Explanation
11:06

In this lecture, we are going to applies what we have learned from the previous lecture on a Lab. We will configure Static route and Static default route on MikroTik routers, and by end of the LAB we are going to test whether the work is done correctly.

Configure static route & static default route - LAB4

Static Floating Route for links Fail-over
2 Lectures 21:43

In this lecture, we are going to explain to you what is a static Floating Route. what is the benefit of having a link fail-over in our network, and in which case we can use it. 

Static Floating Route - Introduction
01:44

In this lecture, we are going to apply a LAB and configure Static Floating Route on our MikroTik router to be able to have link fail-over whenever the 1st route goes off then the 2nd route goes active automatically. In this LAB, we will use the "administrative distance" to be able to have our LAB works well.

By end of the LAB, we are going to make a test to check whether the LAB is working properly.

Equal Cost Multipath (ECMP) Routing for Load-Balancing
2 Lectures 19:25

ECMP is a topic that makes confusion for many people. In this lecture, we are going to explain to you what ECMP is and how it works. 

Equal Cost Multipath (ECMP) Routing - Introduction
03:29

In this Lecture, we are going to configure ECMP on the MikroTik router to have a load-balancing to the same network.

ECMP is mainly used when you have 2 WAN connectivity from 2 ISP's and you want your MikroTik router to make a load-balancing sending traffic to both ISP's. 
Additionally, we will show you how you can configure ECMP in MikroTik Router in case you want to have one ISP receiving your traffic more than the 2nd one.

End of the Lab, a test will be made to check if the configuration is done correctly.

Routing Information Protocol (RIP) from A to Z
7 Lectures 01:24:57

This is an introduction video lecture explaining what are RIP topics that will be covered in this section.

RIP dynamic routing protocol - Introduction
02:06

This is the first RIP theoretical part. In this lecture, we will be discussing in details about different points in RIP such as: IGP, Distance vector, which port does RIP use, RIP administrative distance, Hop counts, how RIP send updates, update and timeout interval.

It is highly required to understand the theory behind RIP to be able to do RIP LABS.

Understanding RIP - Part 1

RIP
5 questions

This is 2nd RIP theoretical part. In this lecture, we will be discussing in details about different points in RIP such as: The difference between RIPv1 and RIPv2, RIP update on both versions, Classfull vs Classless and different type of RIP authentication.

Understanding RIP - Part 2
13:21

RIP2
4 questions

After understanding the theory behind RIP, we will start doing to first RIP LAB by enable it on our MikroTik routers and see how the routers can learn routes from each others dynamically.

We will issue a test end of the LAB to check if all work was done correctly.

Configure & enable RIP on MikroTik routers - LAB7
15:08

In this lecture, we are going to continue the LAB for RIP and will configure passive-interface after understanding why and where passive-interfaces are used. Also we are going to change the RIP versions on the neighbor MikroTik routers to see if RIP still works if you have on the connected interfaces 2 different versions.

Configure Passive-interface, RIPv1 and RIPv2 on MikroTik Routers - LAB8
13:13

Passive-interface RIP and RIP v1 v2
3 questions

We are still in the RIP topic, and in this LAB we are going to do RIP authentication on 2 MikroTik routers using the simple method and MD5. Also we are going to check whether simple and MD5 authentication can work together. We are also going to do MD5 authentication using Key-chain.

Each step will be tested to check the result of our configuration change.

Preview 13:46

In the last LAB of the RIP topic, we are going to configure RIP neighbors on the MikroTik routers and explain in which cases we made need to configure RIP neighbors manually. 
Additionally, we are going to re-distributed a connected route to RIP and check if all MikroTik routers can learn this route in RIP and are able to reach it.

By end of the Lab, a test will be done to check if all configurations are done correctly.
