GL-AXT1800 (Slate AX) Access UI via WAN (LAN)

Hi all,

Is there a way for me, to access the UI (web site) for administration from “WAN”…?
Currently I’m running into a timeout :frowning:
Because what’s called WAN here is actually my LAN where my desktop is linked to.
Administering via mobile phone is quite uncomfortable for me :wink:

THX in advance and
best regards,

You can open port 80 or 443 in your firewall.

Hello yuxin.zou,

Thx for replying :slight_smile:

On which device should I open the port? On the access point?
How can I do this? (I have no knowledge about openWRT).
AFAIK a port to be opened is always in relation to an IP address.
Where/how can I configure this setting with the slate?

Thx in advance,

Can you draw a simple picture of your network topology? From your subsequent questions, I may have misunderstood you.
I understand your topology to be as follows.
Main Router → Your Desktop
Main Router → AXT1800

If it is correct, you can open the port on the AXT1800 to access its management interface on your computer via the WAN IP of the AXT1800.

Hello yuxin.zou,

Thx again for your support.
After I had a look at the web page your link pointed to,
I could open the port and access the UI from my desktop.

Best regards,
