Mikrotik: Switching between interface

NOT FOR GENERAL PUBLIC

SHARING IT FOR PERSONAL REFERENCE


Following is an script that switches connectivity between two interfaces (usually wan).

Example: ISP x have provided internet connectivity via fiber link . as a backup / redundancy link ISP have provided second fiber line. Both link have same ip address with same gateway. There are other ways too , this is just one way of achieving task. it can be customized in many ways like forcing specific hosts to be monitored by ping and act accordingly , or by having bridge etc.

IP address example:

in /ip address >>>

sfp1 = 10.0.0.1 (with comments “PRIMARY-SFP1”)
[remains enabled until next status changed]

sfp2 = 10.0.0.1 (with comments “SECONDARY-SFP2”)
[remains enabled until next status changed]

The script will do following.

Check the SFP1 Status, if it does not found “linkok” reply, it will log event, send email/sms alert to admin, and switch to SFP2 port by enabling IP of SFP2 and enable ip on SFP1.

On next run, if it found SFP1 link ok, then it will log event, send email/sms alert to admin, and switch back to SFP1 port by enabling IP of SFP1 and disable ip on SFP2.
