How to Create an IP Tunnel Between Cisco Router and Mikrotik Router

In this article, we will connect two Routers, Cisco and MikroTik, through the Ip Tunnel, a protocol used to provide network access for two devices that are not physically connected. For this you will need a static IP and a local IP address in both locations, 10.200.0.1 and 172.16.16.2 will be the “public” IP addresses, as shown in the example below.

On the Cisco router, in the general configuration mode, we enter the following configuration to create the IP tunnel:

In addition to the static IP address, we also add the destination IP address.

Enter the following configuration to create the IP tunnel in MikroTik:

1. First, make sure that you have configured the IP address and have access to the internet.

2. In the second step, we go to Interfaces and name it (It is up to you), select the IP Tunnel tab, and click the plus button. In the new screen, enter the MTU size to match on both sides, as well as local and remote addresses.

3. In Step Three, go to IP> Routes and select the default route through the tunnel as the exit interface, and we set the route to 10.200.0.1 through the other public address bypass point.

The fourth and last step is to set the transport IP address to the tunnel interface at IP> addresses.

That’s all we are going to tell you here, if you check it and you haven’t gotten through anything, you should have seen your tunnel working.
