The outdoor router provides both the Web interface and the command-line interface. You can access the Web interface with a web browser.
The command-line interface (CLI) means interacting with the router system where the user issues command to the router system in the form of command lines. Secure Shell (SSH) is a cryptographic network protocol to access the router’s command-line interface.
[Local] Web Terminal
Available on firmware version EV3104 and later versions. Upgrade the firmware if you are using a legacy version firmware.
- Log in the router admin, go to “System / Terminal”.
- Input default router user name “root” and router password.
- You will then receive the welcome message on the web terminal interface.
* The web terminal is unavailable under the Traversal Cloud mode. You can follow below remote SSH guidance to configure a remote SSH tunnel on the traversal cloud.
[Local] Linux & Mac
For Linux and Mac computers, the most common tool is Terminal.
- Open a new Terminal window, type “ssh firstname.lastname@example.org” and press “Enter”.
- If this is your first time logging in, you might be asked to clarify whether you really want to login. In that case, just type yes and press “Enter”.
- Then type in the router’s admin password and press “Enter” to finish the login process.
For the Windows computer, the most common SSH tool is PuTTY. You can download it from here with free.
- Launch PuTTY and select the SSH option under the “Connection type” field.
- Type in the router’s LAN IP address (“192.168.30.1” by default) into the “Host Name” field.
- Type in the SSH port into the “Port” field (“22” by default).
- Click “Open”.
- In the next window type in the login name (“root” by default), press “Enter”.
- Type in the router’s admin password (“root” by default) and press “Enter” again.
- You should be greeted with a message like the right side image shows.
Remote SSH depends on Traversal Cloud provided with firmware version EV3104 or later versions. Upgrade the firmware if you are using a legacy version firmware.
- Log in the router admin, go to “System / Administration”, and enable the checkbox of “Gateway ports”.You can change the SSH port.
- Go to “Service / Traversal Cloud”, click the tab of “Rules”, then click the “Add” button to add an extra SSH proxy.
- Configure the new proxy as the below parameters.
Proxy Name: Use “SSH_Router-Serial-Number” (Must be unique!)
Type: Choose TCP
Local IP: Use 127.0.0.1
Local Port: Default 22, same as the SSH port.
Remote Port: Adjustable
Privilege Mode: Must enable this checkbox.
- Click the “Save & Apply” button.
- Now you can access the router via remote SSH on an SSH tool.
For example, enter “ssh -oPort=6222 email@example.com”
