Building your own Enforcer allows you to make use of all our features, including the web content filter, saturation manager, visibility solution with both dashboards & reports as well as the security IPS solution designed to run with your existing MikroTik Routers. The LucidView Configuration Script is MikroTik approved.
Simply follow the instructions for either the Bolt-On or the Standard Enforcer described below and you will be able to provide your clients with a tremendous value-add to their existing services.
Login to your LucidView Portal where you will be able to generate one of two types of Install scripts for your MikroTik router: Either a “Standard Enforcer” or a “Bolt-On Enforcer”.
This documents explains the difference, and how to download each of them.
(Please register here if you don’t have a MikroTik Enforcer Portal account, and an account can quickly be created for you.)
A standard LucidView Enforcer is created from blank state using a Standard Enforcer script from the LucidView VAR Portal. All configuration settings are made according to the Portal, including IP addresses. (i.e. a Standard Enforcer should not be configured directly via MikroTik Router Configuration Interface once birthed. )
- A “Standard Enforcer Script” must never be installed onto a MikroTik router that is already installed into a network, as all existing configurations are wiped and the IP addresses will be changed on the said MikroTik router.
The LucidView Enforcer Bolt-On solution caters for existing MikroTik routers installations that will benefit from the Content Filter and Reporting provided by LucidView. The Bolt-On script does not change the MikroTik routers network configuration, however it does redirect DNS traffic (See below for more details) The Bolt-On solution only adds the Content filter and Reporting features to the MikroTik router.
- The MikroTik Router must be first be installed into the network, have Internet access, and carry Internet traffic. This install script does not change the IP address configurations.
