RV082 disabling firewall AND remote management

Hi all,

I have a RV082.

I need to disable the firewall, since firewalling is done better elsewhere.

However disabling firewall Remote management on wan ip is forcefully enabled.

I don't need Remote management, keeping it enabled is a security risk for my setup.

I don't understand the rationale behind the choice to forcefully enable remote management if firewall is disabled.

Is there a way to disable both firewall and remote management?

Or at least a workaround?

I'm on firmware 2.0.0.19-tm on a probably v2 hardware. (Cannot find this info in the web configuration).

This is not the newest even for v2 hw but I cannot afford to break it trying to upgrade the firmware.

Moreover no release notes for firmware releases refers to a correction of firewall/remote management behavior.

Is this behavior also in newer firmware releases?

Gabriele,

V03 hardware has same behaviour. Possible workaround:

enable firewall;

disable: SPI, DoS, Block Wan, Rem. Management

and remove all custom Access rules (Restore to default rules).

I will probably enable the firewall and set a pass-all rule.

It is a bit odd, but it seems to be the only way to disable remote management.

From the manual of recent version, where screenshots of v3 with recent firmware are presented, it seems that they have fixed the behavior.

By default if firewall is disabled, also remote management.

So if you don't like this odd behaviour maybe you can fix it upgrading the firmware (but no release note of different 4.x firmware say nothing about this issue)

Thank you Maxim for your answer. I set it as "correct answer" since your answer has useful info for my question.
