Remote Administration Setup

Remote Administration Setup
(NP804n)
Remote Administration:
Remote administration allows you to access the modem / router / VOIP ATA configuration
page from a computer connected to the internet.
This can also be used to enable your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to check your settings if
you experience connection issues.
In the case of a VOIP ATA, you would also need to create a “Port Forwarding”
rule on your modem / router for port 80 (or the applicable remote administration
access port) pointing to your VOIP ATA’s IP address.
If your modem / router is a NetComm or Dynalink unit, please see the
appropriate “Port Forwarding” support document for assistance with adding
this rule.
Before enabling remote access to your modem, we recommend changing the
username and password required to login.
Please see our “Changing the default username and password” document
for assistance with this.
You can also limit access to a specific IP or subnet (*)
This will prevent unauthorised access to your modem.

- If supported by your model of modem / router.
