Q: How do I configue to set up Remote Management?
A: Depending on your internet connect plans, your methods of setting up remote
management will be different.
1. After Login to the RNX-EasyN400 management page, Click 「Tools」, then
「Admin」. We should see as below.
2. Host Address is referring a set of IP address that represent the designated
computer in your network which you allow to access to your wireless router. But
once you enter a set IP, you won't be able to link to your wireless router from any other
computer except the computer that has the correct IP address when you are login
within your network.
3. In order to access from different remote places (eg. Remote connect to your RNXEasyN400 at home from your office), we will need to leave Host Address blank.
4. Type in 8080 or 80 or 8888 in <port>; these are the numbers normally won't be use by
other applications or you can input your desired port number, however you will need to
make sure that the port number you use wasn’t use by other applications. Click
<Enable>; then <Apply>
