Gateway connected but rto

No response == no address at the end, or arp filtering.


monitor traffic interface eth7.538

Is there any traffic ?

I just set the ethernet configuration
nothing else
So it’s impossible for there to be any traffic because i haven’t set anything up yet
just connect VLAN and network

not yet moved to the next stage
such as routing and nat

Just the interface is already RTO

after replay
just entered traffic

I’m just connecting the Vyos interface to the network

in this case the interface eth.538 address
to be able to connect to the network is not a network address, it is a regular address. You use the /31 prefix, so there is no network or broadcast address. Such addressing is treated as point-to-point. Read RFC3021

Run two ssh sessions to your VyOS.

On first run ping to

On second run monitor traffic interface eth7.538

What you see ?

then what is the correct configuration so that it can connect point to point

redirected directly to

This can be done on a Mikrotik

but the problem is I want to move or replace the system from Mikrotik to Vyos

what form of configuration should I input?

You have correct configuration.

set interfaces ethernet eth7 vif 538 address
set protocols static route next-hop

Show interface vlan538-fs configuration (from Mikrotik)

vyos@vyos# set interfaces ethernet eth7 vif 538 address

Answer this: Gateway connected but rto - #24 by pepe
and this: Gateway connected but rto - #28 by pepe

In mikrotik, if using “Address” and “Network”, it’s a point to point.
If you want that both devices are within a same network, please, in mikroik remote what is written in “Network” and add appropiate mask in address. Such as

I only have one device on which device I installed Vyos

they just give it to me or my boss or whoever

to input IP address to device interface without netmask
with network

if ping replay then it is connected

if you can’t find a way in Vyos
So it is recommended to look for another system
if i don’t want to use a mikrotik

this is my inteface vlan

it should be like this

then what should I do to be able to reply to

on Vyos where there is an IP on the interface

as you mean, namely point-to-point

Everything looks good.

Run monitor traffic on interface eth7.538

monitor traffic interface eth7.538

Log in again with a second session to VyOS and ping address

What the “monitor traffic” shows ?

where should ido that
i have to run two ssh or what

Yes two ssh sessions.

No ARP response.

How VyOS is connected with network ? To switch ? To the same port as Mikrotik ?

Replace “monitor traffic” with:

sudo tcpdump -i eth7 -n -e

Then ping again.

What tcpdump shows ?
