Anyone got this to work? I need to be able to do this as the device often forgets port forwarding settings and I need to be able to set them up again. I know you can do this by using the Windows Remote Desktop feature then call up 192.168.1.1 but it is the port I need to make this work that gets forgotten most often. Hence the best solution would seem to be to access the HG659 interface externally, but no luck in making this happen. Any help appreciated.

You could use something like team viewer to log into the PC, no port forwarding required. Probably safer than allowing remote access to the router

Thanks, this could be the solution - is Teamviewer able to connect to a remote Windows PC that is powered up but not logged in?

yes, in my setup at home, team viewer starts with windows and you can use it to log in.

I personally use AnyDesk - works well, quick and allows signing into a PC
