how the lucidview enforcer works

How our Internet Management Modules work

All the LucidView Modules are designed to run on MikroTik RouterOS.

If you are not familiar with the MikroTik routers (RouterOS)  please do contact us and we will gladly put you in touch with MikroTik Consultants who are able to assist you in configuring the solution.

Technically Speaking

This is the technical overview of how the Enforcer works.

LucidView provides a well commented configuration script for MikroTik routers. This script, in a nutshell, does the following:

VPN to LucidView

  • Creates a VPN to our cloud.
  • Sends raw log data to the LucidView Cloud.
    • Netflow and Syslog of DNS lookups are sent to the LucidView Cloud via the VPN created.
    • Typically Netflow and Syslog will take up less than 1% of the data line, if the line is saturated.
  • Configure your MikroTik Router as a DNS server for your Internal LAN and then set up a LucidView DNS server as an upstream forwarder via the VPN.

Allow LucidView Cloud access to your MikroTik (Optional)

For additional functionality (listed below)  you could create a user on the MikroTik router to allow the LucidView Cloud access your MikroTik to:

  • Do a DHCP name lookup — This is is useful in the Portal reporting section. (read only permissions needed)
  • Set the WiFi password (read and write  permissions needed)

All of the above is clearly commented in the actual configuration script provided via the LucidView Enforcer Portal
