You need to VLAN, though you don't have to VLAN your existing hotspot 
configuration though.  Just tag it through from the upstream CCR through to 
your Marina CCR.

Subject: Re: [Mikrotik Users] Advice needed- Hotspot Behind Hotspot

Build a VPN to the Marina CCR  from the modem CCR.  Set up the VPN so it 
bypasses the Hotspot software for the RV park

The subject is the best I could do for a description, but let me really 
describe it.

I have a System running in an RV park, with a Cable Modem feeding a couple 
dozen Aps.  I use Mikrotik hotspot with an external service handling AAA and 
payment.   It is on a static IP from a cable modem and I have plenty of spare 
statics for future use.

I have a new customer that is a marina a couple of miles away. I have already 
shot a PtP link over there which works well. Unfortunately the AP for this shot 
is fed, not from the cable modem, but from a point behind the RV park hotspot 
this point in itself is fed from the cable modem by a couple of PtP links in 
between.    Operating in transparent bridge mode, so that isn't an issue..  So 
the users at the marina get the login page, etc for the RV park and basically 
look like they are RV park residents.    I'm not using VLANS in the network.

Problem  is  is that I need the users at the Marina not to get the Hotspot 
system for the RV Park. Instead they need their own.   I can put another MT 
router/hotspot out at the marina but the problem is this feed that is already 
behind a hotspot. How can I let one of the external static IPs from the cable 
modem pass unrestricted out to that AP that shoots to the Marina without having 
the RV hotspot get in the way?  It sounds like a job for VLANS but that would 
mean that I'd have to VLAN the entire network at both places and somehow get 
the external IP for the marina to go around the first hotspot somehow.

Can anyone offer any advice how to do this?

Hopefully this simple diagram comes through and isn't messed up

What I have:
Modem-MT CCR Router---<PtP AP> <PtP CPE> ---(RV Park Aps)
        + <PtP AP to Marina>  <PtP CPE at Marina> --- (Marina Aps)

What I want:
Modem-MT CCR Router---<PtP AP> <PtP CPE> ---(RV Park Aps)
        + <PtP AP to Marina>  <PtP CPE at Marina> --- MT CCR Router---- (Marina
