Since I have had the new NF18ACV router I am unable to successfully change the HTTP management port on the router.  By default it is on port 80.  However I want to run a webserver which requires NAT on 80.  So I tried changing "management - services control - HTTP LAN from port 80 to 8000 (or also 8080).  When I do this I get the login box but then the webui hangs and does not load.  I have done a factory defaults reset after each try but still not able to successfully change the service port.




Is this an oddity with the Orcon firmware:




firmware: NF18ACV.NC.Vocus-R6B038.EN

Have you tried just forwarding the port? From memory, those routers will automatically remap themselves when you do, and advise you as such. Worth a swing, might be an easier fix.

Hey Andy,




We have had some issues with the RB38 firmware so it looks like we should push the updated version onto your device.


I just had this tested on RB40 so it should resolve the issue.




I'll flick you a private message so I can get the Technical team to do this for you.
