GRE tunnel between Vyos and Mikrotik without IPSEC

Hello everyone. I have the following problem. I configured the GRE tunnel between Vyos and Mikrotik without encryption. I don’t need encryption at the moment. The problem is that the tunnel does not up until i not start ping Mikrotik tunnel interface from Vyos, then everything works. If i turn off the tunnel from the Mikrotik side and then turn it back on, it starts up. But if i disable the tunnel on Vyos, or restart Vyos then until i not start ping, the tunnel does not work. How to overcome this problem?

I found a solution to the problem myself. It is necessary to disable keepalive in the tunnel settings from Mikrotik.
