This is a simple and easy hack, but one I couldn't find when I searched for it.
So you want to access the WEB UI and you are not in your home network. But you have enabled the SSH access from the internet.
I assume the following:
- You have an EdgeRouter
- You have SSH access from the Internet to the router (Check this if you don't know how)
- The WEB UI is currently only accessible from the behind NAT on https:192.168.1.1
With a command line ssh client you can run:
ssh -L 9000:192.168.1.1:443 firstname.lastname@example.org
The equivalent in PuTTY is in Connection -> SSH -> Tunnels page.
- Source port - 9000
- Destination - 192.168.1.1:443
Don't change anything else, radio buttons should be on Local and Auto.
- Click the Add button
- Open the connection
After the connection is opened successfully, open https://localhost:9000 in your browser and accept the security warning.
