Warning:
You should not enable DVG ATA WAN access unless it is behind a FIREWALL (and you understand the impact on your VOIP service).


WAN access is OFF by default, but is useful for those those configurations with a DVG ATA behind a router, where the LAN (and computers) are connected to the router instead of the DVG's Ethernet port.

If the DVG is in the router's DMZ and has WAN access enabled, the default DVG ATA Password should be changed.

Enabling WAN Access
Any settings performed below will be reset to the default state after any FirmWare Upgrade.

    First, temporarily plug your computer into the ETHERNET port on the DVG ATA (or through a LAN that is connected to that port).

    Telnet to the default DVG's LAN address (URL): 192.168.15.1
    (or the modified LAN address that you may have set in the DVG).

    • Enter the following commands:
    nwdbg RAccessOn
    activate
    exit

This provides full access to the WAN port (configuration web interface and telnet connections). The WAN IP address can be determined either by your router's LAN DHCP settings, or from the DVG's Configuration Web interface.

Modifying WEB port
You may also wish to modify the web port from 80 (default) to another port number. This too will be reset to the default after any FirmWare Upgrade.

You can do this through telnet with nwdbg web port (requires a reboot) or through the default web interface:

Login to the DVG ATA.
• Click on Advanced.
• Click on Device information, and change the Web port number to the port you want.

Warning:
You should not enable DVG ATA WAN access unless it is behind a FIREWALL (and you understand the impact on your VOIP service).
