I am using a Mikrotik Power router 732. I have a need to have interface 3 be an access port (no tagging). Then that be a L2 bridge to port 5 Vlan 97. Also want the Router to have L3 access to this bridge.

SO I created the Vlan interface, with the proper VLAN tag.
Created a bridge
Added both ether3 and Vlan interface to the bridge
Set an IP address (in proper subnet) and assigned to the bridge interface.

I can connect between the machine on the Vlan and the 732.
Neither can connect to the server that is behind ether3 (untagged)

If I turn off the bridge and assign the IP to ether3, then I can connect 732 to the other server.

I have looked at a number of online docs and all would lead me to believe that I am doing this correctly. Any idea what is wrong?

I know nothing about configuring Mikrotik devices, but based on an article on their wiki site, I would suggest the following set-up:
/interface vlan add name=vlan-97 vlan-id=97 interface=ether5 disabled=no
/ip address add address=<IP>/<Mask> interface=vlan-97
/interface bridge add name=br-vlan97 disabled=no
/interface bridge port add interface="vlan-97" bridge="br-vlan97" disabled=no
/interface bridge port add interface="ether3" bridge="br-vlan97" disabled=no

Open in new window

The examples I found all assigned the IP address to the VLAN interface, not the Bridge.

that is what I based my solution on. It is still not functioning properly.

After much more testing I think I found the issue is not that it is not working, but that the device on the other end was broken (having issues with BPDU packets).

that is in fact the correct config.
