To test a router, we need an upstream connection. This directory contains a derivation to download, start and configure a RouterOS "Cloud Hosted Router" instance in a Qemu VM. It is currently set up for automated tests only, and may require some manual frobbing to run interactively.
Note that you need to open some multicast ports if you're using the NixOS firewall (or probably, any other firewall). For iptables you can accomplish this by editing your configuration.nix or some module it calls:
networking.firewall.extraCommands = '' ip46tables -A nixos-fw -m pkttype --pkt-type multicast -p udp --dport 1234:1236 -j nixos-fw-accept '';
