Like most geeks here, I support a few family members with their broadband, so I like to have remote access to their routers to help with troubleshooting.
With TP-Link & Dynalink routers, I have dynamic dns and remote admin setup (and NOT on the default username/password!) so that I can view their admin webpages.
On this Thomson (TG585, was received new from Telecom this year, not sure which version number that is) I have dynamic dns updating fine, but the remote admin config is seemingly temporary. It only lets me open a remote config 'session', no the permanent access that I would like. So after a reboot it closes the session, and I cannot remote config it again without going on site and opening another session. Does anyone know a way around this, to open a permanent remote config session?
I know that the Thomson is a complete POS, however it is more than capable for someone who recently upgraded from dialup, so I'd rather not replace it.
