    Default beetel 220bx remote administration

    When I give my modem's WAN IP (122.xx.xx.xx) from a remote location, I get a dialog to login to my DSL router's port 80 (which I assume to be the beetel modem)

    I give in the default admin/password credentials (same as the one that I give while accessing the modem on intranet) and the login does not work.. I can login succesfully to 192.168.1.1/main.html using admin/password and not from internet using the modem's WAN IP...

    Any idea why (or why not)

    I want to be able to configure/reboot my modem remotely by accessing 122.xx.xx.xx/main.html

    remember i am not talking about client tr-069 or SNMP, just modem admin page(s) remotely

    thanks in advance

    When you are connected to Internet find the DYnamic IP at base location.
    myIPaddress.com: What is my IP address? How do I find my IP address?
    Get it on phone at remote location.
    type it in address bar of browser.
    You can access the modem settings. see link 192.168.1.1 below.
    or
    Download/use Teamviewer and access base system computer/modem etc.
    ( On line ).

    Thanks for the quick reply - really appreciate it..

    1) I believe I have the correct WAN address of home modem.
    2) Typed it into the address bar in a browser at remote location and it prompts a auth dialog that says "The... DSL router at xxx.xx.xx.xx:80 needs authentication).
    3) I enter admin/password and it does not work.

    Just cant seem to figure out what the credentials are (since the same work just fine on local network)

    I am not looking for a PC based solution (VNC/Teamplayer etc) as I will not have my PC turned on while I am away for a long while.

    What I am trying to do is in the following thread

    indiabroadband.net/broadband-how/29772-192-168-1-1-no-access.html#post284804

    but just that I want to connect to the modem from a remote location (different ISP etc)

    I would like to able to control my modem, router and the vulkano placeshifting box that is connected to the router.. Hence this rather 'unique' need.

    I have been able to find much useful info from the links you sent across..

    Does it change ? Repost your DynamicIP again.
    Any firewall blocking it ?

    Waited for 30 minutes late night, then switched off computer.

    (2)
    Tried Port forwarding ? type 192.168.1.1 in DMZ menu.

    as of now it is 122.167.7.245

    I wonder how can it show me the auth. dialog at all and not accept the credentials... I am guessing if its a firewall/DMZ issue, then it probably would not displayed the login dialog to start with , no?

    and, the firewall is disabled.

    when I click 'cancel' on that dialog, it gives the following:

    "401 Unauthorized

    Authorization required.
    micro_httpd
    "

    Check mine :
    (deleted)admin password
    You may have to RESET the modem to factory settings to get the default id and PW.
    Check whether any other modem can be used at Remote location.
    Tried . but no access.
    Switch off modem and restart. for new Dynamic IP.
    Are you on "Dialer" UserId/mode in remote location ?
    try PPPoE"alwaysOn" and enter/store UserId/PW in WAN page.
    wait .....

    ok. will try yout suggestion (pppoe always on thingy)... and update this post around Saturday noon IST (i need to tell someone back in india about this)

    I must add that I have already tried the reset route yesterday. Again, the user/pwd works just fine on LAN.

    at remote location, i am on cable broadband (not DSL/phone modem) - Its a cable modem/router..

    I guess I am going to try the following between now and saturday noon:
    1) PPPOE Always On
    2) restart the modem (again)
    3) putting 192.168.1.1 in DMZ.
    4) telnet into it from LAN pc and check for httpd config file (Is there any setting in the httpd.conf (or similar file) that prevents internet requests?)

    thanks and appreciate your help and patience with this question !!!

    at remote location, i am on cable broadband (not DSL/phone modem) - Its a cable modem/router..
    Who is the ISP ? Modem model number/make/manufacturer..
    The Ip address you gave was of AIRTEL at remote location
    Doubtful whether you can use PPPoE( "alwaysOn") mode..



    I am interested in trying for a solution to member's technical problem/s and may not be successful all the time , or knowledgeable. but discussion/info/data collected is useful later. Even negative reports.

    Why there is hesitation in giving the required details?
    In a forum, it never helps, if the thread starter decides to
    give info what he thinks is needed, and ignores member's queries.

    Hope you will post the solution , if you succeed, instead of a cryptic
    "I solved the problem! thanks everybody !!!!!!!
    back to T20 cricket !
