Bekijk de volledige versie : remote access to WL-500G

15-06-2006, 02:24
sorry about my english.
I have Asus WL-500G deluxe. Everything is ok, besides remote access.
I cannot access my router from internet (WAN) - i tried web access, telnet and ssh (putty). From my lan everything is ok (access by web, telnet or ssh).
The only way is to disable firewall (Internet firewall-basic config). But then itīs impossible to disable ping to WAN - relatively great problem for me.

So my question - is it normal, or itīs "firmware-bug"?
I would like to have firewall enabled, ping disabled and to have access to my router from everywhere (via SSH).

Note: I have the latest "Olegīs firmware (

Than you very much,

To enable SSH access from outside you should add the following line to post-firewall:

iptables -i xxx -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT

where xxx is the interface through which you are connected to internet (for example ppp0)

I have this line in /usr/local/sbin/post-firewall:

iptables -i vlan1 -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
