Having a weird issue at the moment. I have OpenWRT installed on my router
My router is sitting behind a UPC modem at the moment which I can't put
into bridging mode due to firmware restrictions on the device. As it stands
the UPC modem/router is connected to the WAN of the router running OpenWRT.
A while ago I set up a port forward for SSH from the UPC modem to the
router which is accessible externally. However I'm looking to set up some
more services on the router now (ftp server etc) but in order to do so I
need to set up a port forward from the UPC device.
This would be fine if I was at home but I'm not. I've installed elinks onto
the router and have launched it remotely however it doesn't seem to like
the fact that the UPC modem requires a username / password prompt to be
bypassed when loading it up.
What I mean is if I were to access the UPC config page via a standard
browser it would prompt me for a username and password but these have to be
left blank in order to access the settings page correctly (don't ask me
why... I have no idea).
If I select 'ok' on this username / password prompt in elinks however it
just pops straight back up again. The problem is this prompt needs to be
Any way to bypass this or convince elinks to accept this?
