Hardware Version: V4
Firmware Version: 3.16.0 0.9.1 v600c.0 Build 181119 Rel.41073n

Hardware Version: Archer C5 v4 00000004

 

Firmware Version: 3.16.0 0.9.1 v600c.0 Build 181119 Rel.41073n

 

What i try to do is to access the administrator GUI when connected via OpenVPN.

 

The other way is to enable remote management but that also meant to have it open over the internet.

 

Right now i have setup the OpenVPN server from my Tp-link router, downloaded the configuration file on my smartphone (opened it with OpenVPN app)

 

What happenes when i try to load 192.168.0.1 in my browser i get the following error: https://i.imgur.com/RDP55wK.png - 403 Forbidden.

 

Is there something i do wrong?

 

Thank you!

Hi the port number is necessary.

 

With your device connected to the VPN server, launch a browser and enter LAN IP + port number or Internet IP + port number.

Port number is 80 by default, while it depends on the actual situation. 

 

Finger crossed.

Hello, 

 

I have observed that using https://192.168.0.1 it works.

 

What i want to do now is to access the second router. The second one is connected to the first one as acces point using wds bridge.

 

How can i acces the second router, connected to the first one over vpn?

Hello, with your device outside connects to the VPN router via the VPN tunnel, you can open a web browser and access the second router which works as a repeater via its IP address.

Note: You need check the IP address of it on the web interface of the main router. 

May it help.
