Symptom:

I would like to remotely access and configure a Series 2 CradlePoint router.

Cause:

Ability to remotely access and administrate a CradlePoint router.

Resolution:

  1. Log into the routers administration page (login instructions).
  2. Click on the TOOLS tab.                                                                                                   User-added image
  3. Locate the ADMINISTRATION section.                                                                          User-added image
  4. Place a check in the box next to Enable Remote Admin Login.                                User-added image
  5. Record the Remote Port Number for future use.                                                        User-added image
  6. If you would like to use HTTPS, you can enable that check box now.  NOTE:  If enabling HTTPS allow 30 minutes before accessing the router.                                                                                                                              User-added image
  7. Click Save Settings at the top of the page.                                                                    User-added image
  8. Click Reboot Now then OK  when the confirmation dialog appears.
  9. The CradlePoint router will reboot.                                                                                  User-added image
  10. After the router reboot is complete connect to your CradlePoint for remote web administration.

NOTE:  To access the the router from the internet the IP address must be known.  A DynDNS account or static IP address issued by your cellular carrier or ISP will maintain knowledge of the routers address.

To access the router from the Internet on a computer not on the CradlePoint router’s LAN, enter the [IP address]:[port number] or [DynDNS]:[port number]  into a web browser address bar.  For example:

  • 172.22.96.125:8080
  • my-dyndns-info.com:8080
