Quote from: ckamas on August 25, 2021, 03:20:09 PMfrom the admin manual, to save others the hassle of finding this info:When the device is operating in router mode (OBi202/OBi302 only), the built-in web server may be accessed from the LAN side or the WAN side. While access from the LAN side is always allowed, for security reasons, the access from the WAN side may be disabled by configuration. In fact, the WAN side access to the web server is disabled by default. You can enable this option on the device web page (from the LAN side), or by using the device configuration IVR (* * * 0 option 30) from an attached telephone.
QuoteI've casually glanced at some of the other posts about this and ignored it because I profess, I don't own a 202. But this problem sounds fishy to me. I'm assuming the 202 in the router mode has 2 or maybe more ethernet ports. I'm also assuming one of them will be dedicated as "wan" and the rest become "lan" ports. This brings up a question; The router mode should only be used if you are using a single port internet gateway and you still want to connect a computer. The "wan" port of the Obi should plug into your gateway [remember, it only has one port] and you would plug your computer into the "lan" port on the 202. Hence, you never "connect to the wan port" using your browser.

Quote from: drgeoff on August 27, 2021, 12:12:10 PMI have a distant OBi100 working fine behind two routers for years without having to do anything special. Only the local router is under accessible for user configuration. Its WAN IP is a 10.x.x.x number which indicates that the ISP (a cable TV system) also has a router. Carrier Grade NAT.
