In this example, we are using source address in order to identify packets which should be routed throught VPN ( You can also use other means of identification or a combination of identifiers such as destination port and source address. Keep in mind, you need to make sure that traffic originating from the MikroTik router is exluded from this marking or it will attempt to communicate with the VPN server through the VPN itself, causing the connection to brake.
