RV042 - protect remote managent

Hi there,

is it possible to protect the remote management with a firewall rule if it is enabled? I changed the port to 888 and set a rule to deny all traffic to this port, but i can login to the router from external.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Chris

Hi Christian, thank you for using our forum, my name is Luis I am part of the Small business Support community. When remote management is enabled, you can use a web browser to access the configuration utility from anywhere on the Internet. In a web browser, enter http://:port, or enter https://:port if you have enabled the HTTPS feature. The highlight part is the important section that I want to clarify, If you want to restrict the access from WAN to your router you must disable the HTTPS feature in order to do that. Also if you disable the HTTPS feature, then users cannot connect by using QuickVPN.

Please go to Firewall > General and disable HTTPS option, then try to access your router remotely again.

I hope you find this answer useful
