Try Telnet instead.
Telnet (through command prompt) gets connected. However, I'm not familiar with it at all. I could see some of the config (but a part flooded beyond what the screen could show).
Type ? and you will be given the basic commands, then you type each and their sub commands are seen.
What I was afraid of, happened: accidental factory reset. I'll stick with the GUI, makes more sense to me.
