My RV082 is at 22.214.171.124. I have enabled remote management and know the port. I was able to remotely manage the router and was attempting to setup a VPN from work using QuickVPN. I created a user account and selected the "generate certificate" button. Once done, I then selected to download certificate for the client. That is when I lost my connection. No matter what I did I could no longer connect. Ive cleared cookies, temp files, history, and everything else I can think of but have no idea what is going on. Its as if the router is selectively blocking access. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I tried this exact scenario and was able to confirm your results. Here is a work around:
- Access router locally.
- Disable Remote Managment ---> Save
- Enable Remote Managment ----> Save
This will allow you to re-gain the prompt for adding the newly generated certificate.
However, the steps you have followed to create users was in-correct. Basically by not saving between each change on the page, you created a conflict in the firmware where the desired change would generate a pop-up prompt. Since you had made 3 changes all at once, it created this conflict.
To ensure you do not lose remote access: Please make changes one at a time and hit Save on the page. This allows the router to prompt any instruction/input messages for the corresponding settings.
Thanks for the response. In addition to the fix, I generated a new certificate and now I can remotely manage the router again.
