Local Management

You can control the local devices’ authority to manage the modem router via Local Management feature. By default all local connected devices are allowed to manage the modem router. You can also specify one device to manage the modem router and enable local management over a more secure way, HTTPS.

 

1. Log in the web interface of the modem router. You can refer to How to login to the web management page of TD-W9960

2. Go to Advanced > System Tools > Administration page. Locate the Local Management section.

3. Keep the Port as the default setting. Enable Local Management via HTTPS and keep the Port for HTTPS as the default setting. Enter the IP address or MAC address of the local device to manage the modem router.

 

 

4. Click Save.

Now, you can manage the modem router over both HTTP (http://tplinkmodem.net) and HTTPS (https://tplinkmodem.net).

 

Note: If you want that all local devices can manage the modem router, just leave the IP/MAC Address field blank.

 

 

Remote Management

 

By default, the remote devices are not allowed to manage the modem router from the internet. You can enable remote management over HTTP and/or HTTPS if needed. HTTPS is a more secure way to access the router.

Note: If your ISP assigns a private WAN IP address (such as 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x), you cannot use the remote management feature because private addresses are not routed on the internet.

1. Log in the web interface of the modem router. You can refer to How to login to the web management page of TD-W9960

2. Go to Advanced > System Tools > Administration page. Locate the Remote Management section.

3. Tick the check box to enable Remote Management. Enable Remote Management via HTTPS to allow for HTTPS connection. Keep the Port as the default setting.

4. Set the client device allowed for remote management. Select All to allow all remote devices to manage the modem router. If you just want to allow a specific device to manage the modem router, select Only the Following IP/MAC Address and enter the IP/MAC address of the remote device.

5. Click Save.

All devices or the specific device on the internet can log in to your router using the address displayed on the Manage This Router via the Address field to manage the modem router.

Tips:

1. If you were warned about the certificate when visiting the web management page remotely, click Trust (or a similar option) to continue. To avoid this warning, you can download and install the certificate on the modem router’s web management page at Advanced > System Tools > Administration.

2. The router’s WAN IP is usually a dynamic IP. Please refer to How to set up a Dynamic DNS server account on TD-W9960? if you want to log in to the router through a domain name.
