The Access function provides you with the possibility to set up remote HTTP access to devices that are connected to a device's LAN, provided that the device in question has been registered to RMS.

Configure device accessEdit


  1. Make sure that the device for which you would like to set up remote access is physically connected to the router's LAN or WAN (depends on your configuration).
  2. Locate and select that router in the device table.
  3. Move your mouse pointer to the "Actions" menu and click Access.
  4. New pop-up window will open, click the plus sign   to create a new row.
  5. Fill out the new row will appropriate data (look for example in the table below). When you're finished, click "Save".
  6. Enter a custom name for the device (for easier management purposes), the router's port through which you will be connecting, the device's LAN IP address, the device's destination port to which you will be connecting to and, if you wish, place checkmarks under "Access without RMS login" and "Use custom basic-auth".
  7. The next Actions status pop-up will display the status of your request. If update is successful in the Status column you will you will get a message: LAN device(s) created successfully.
Field Value Description
Name For example: RUT230 A custom name for the LAN device.
Destination IP For example: 192.168.1.2 The device’s LAN IP address.
Destination Port Default: 80 The destination device's WebUI HTTP port.
Access without RMS login Default: unchecked If this is checked, the login screen will be skipped when connecting to the destination device.


Important!

  • By default configuration you can connect devices using LAN ports
  • To access a device using WAN port you will need to enable Enable remote HTTP access. You will need to connect to routers WebUI and go to System -> Administration -> Access Control

 

Connect to deviceEdit


 

  1. You can then find remote access links in the Device details page. You can find this page by clicking the "Device Information" icon located under the "Actions" column in the Device table, next to the relevant device.
  2. You will be redirected to the device's "Information overview" page. By default, the "Device access" widget will be in the top-left of that page. Locate the device that you wish to access and click the link next to it.
  3. Click on the custom name for the device you created in previous steps.
  4. A Device Web UI link pop-up window will open. Click the Generate new button.
  5. A new link will appear in the window. Click the link to connect to the device.
  6. For this example, I used another RUTxxx router that was connected to the RMS device's LAN. Therefore, when I click the link, I am redirected to RUTxxx login page.


 


If the connected device is not a RUTxxx router, you will probably be directed to that device's login page. Just enter the authentication information and login.

Remove device from access listEdit


 

  1. You can later delete device access entries by once again selecting the device and clicking "Access" from the Actions menu.
  2. When the new pop-window opens click the Remove access item icon next to the entry that you would like to delete.

 

At the top of your screen, you will get a notification in green text: Remote access deleted.
