Steps to reproduce:
- The default port is 80. Change it to anything else, like 8888.
On a client system, add the following to /etc/hosts (replace ip_address with your public IP):
- Access the web interface like this: "example.com:8888"
The usual login form
A broken web page (missing CSS and JS) that offers, without any form of authentication, a button to reboot the device, and a form to redefine a user's password.
TP-Link technical support dismissed this as "not a bug", so I'm documenting it here.
Use the default port (80).
