What you'll learn

  • Understand Static and default Routes
  • Understand the more specific routes on static routes
  • Understand and configure ECMP
  • Understand route distance
  • Understand the difference between FIB and RIB tables
  • Understand and configure Routing mark and route policy
  • Understand and configure Recursive routes with scope/target-scope usage
  • Understand what VPN is and the different types of VPN
  • Understand and configure the follow tunnels: IPIP, EoIP, PPTP, SSTP, L2TP, PPPoE
  • Understand what is VLAN and how to use it
  • Configuring VLAN
  • Understand and configure Q-in-Q
  • Understand what is Link-state Routing Protocol
  • Understand what is OSPF Routing Protocol
  • Understand how OSPF use SPF algorithm for calculating the best route
  • Understand how OSPF works
  • Understand OSPF hello packets and LSA's types
  • Understand the OSPF network structure such as Areas and Router Types
  • Understand the need of DR/BDR election and configure them in OSPF
  • Understand and configure External router distribution (Type1, Type2)
  • Understand and configure load balancing on OSPF
  • Understand and configure Router aggregation on OSPF
  • Understand and configure stub areas (Stub, Totally Stub, NSSA, Totally NSSA)
  • Understand and configure Virtual links in OSPF


  • Having MikroTik MTCNA knowledge

MikroTik MTCRE is at the 2nd level certificate from MikroTik, and it is considered in the Engineering level. This course will speak about everything related to Routing at the Intermediate level. Being MikroTik MTCRE certified is a prerequisite for the higher level Routing certificate which is MTCINE

For this reason, I have designed this course to help you understanding how Routing happens in MikroTik and be read for the MikroTik MTCRE exam.

This course will contain theories but a lot of LABS. For this reason, if you want to follow this course I advice you to have 1 PC and 5 or MikroTik Routers with UTP Cables. Alternatively, you can use MikroTik CHR on GNS3 to emulate the LABS, and which GNS3 you don't require any physical Routerboards as all LABS can be done on GNS3

In this course, you will learn the following topics:

  • More specific routes
  • ECMP
  • How to force gateway over specific interface
  • Gateway reachability check and route distance
  • Routing mark and route policy
  • Recursive next-hop and scope/target-scope usage
  • What is OSPF?
  • How OSPF protocol works
  • Hello protocol
  • Database distribution and LSA types explained
  • OSPF network structure
  • Areas
  • Router types
  • OSPF neighbors and neighbor states (DR and BDR election)
  • External Route Distribution methods (type1, type2)
  • Interface cost and interface types (broadcast, NBMA, etc.)
  • SPT calculation algorithm
  • OSPF and multicast (problems with NBMA)
  • Stub, NSSA and area ranges (route aggregation)
  • Virtual links, usage and limitations
  • SPF routing filters and limitations
  • What is VPN?
  • Different types of VPN
  • Site to site connectivity with tunnels
  • VLAN and it's usage
  • VLAN and managed switch
  • VLAN and switch chip configuration on RouterBOARDs
  • Q-in-Q implementation

As you can see, there are many topics that are covered in this course and on each of the topics there are sub-topics. A lot of LABS will be done on each of the topics so you can understand practically how you can configure all these topics on the MikroTik.

Finally, if you want to have a global understanding of all MTCRE topics and be ready for the MTCRE exam, all you need to do is to register to my course and I assure that your goal will be achieved.

Who this course is for:
  • Students who want to learn and be ready for the MikroTik MTCRE exam
  • Engineers who want to have more knowledge on Routing in MikroTik
