The Backup page is used to generate the user's defaults configuration and download or upload backup files to the router.
Backup and Restore Configuration
The Backup and Restore Configuration sections are used to download or upload configuration backup files to the router. Backup files can be uploaded only from identical devices with identical or older firmware. Once a backup file is uploaded to a router, that router will have identical configuration as the router from which the backup file originated (was downloaded from).
- Backup Configuration - generates and downloads the router's backup file based on the current configuration. Section also contains MD5, SHA256 checksum fields generated from latest downloaded backup.
- Restore Configuration - uploads a configuration backup file to the router. Once uploaded you will be redirected to backup security check page.
Important: backup files can be uploaded only when taken from a device with identical Product code, which can be checked in Status → Device, and identical or older firmware.
Backup Security Check
After uploading backup you will be redirected to the following page to verify if the checksums of uploaded backup matches any of your downloaded backups.
The Access Control page is used to manage remote and local access to the router.
Important: turning on remote access leaves the router vulnerable to external attackers. Make sure you use a strong password.
The General section is used to manage SSH, HTTP(S) and CLI access to the router.
|Enable SSH access||yes | no; default: yes||Turns SSH access from the local network (LAN) on or off.|
|Remote SSH access||yes | no; default: no||Turns SSH access from remote networks (WAN) on or off.|
|Port||integer [0..65535]; default: 22||Selects which port to use for SSH access.|
|Enable HTTP access||yes | no; default: yes||Turns HTTP access from the local network (LAN) to the router's WebUI on or off.|
|Enable HTTPS access||yes | no; default: yes||Turns HTTPS access from the local network (LAN) to the router's WebUI on or off.|
|Redirect to HTTPS||yes | no; default: no||Redirects connection attempts from HTTP to HTTPS.|
|Enable remote HTTP access||yes | no; default: no||Turns HTTP access from remote networks (WAN) to the router's WebUI on or off.|
|Port||integer [0..65535]; default: 80||Selects which port to use for HTTP access.|
|Enable remote HTTPS access||yes | no; default: no||Turns HTTPS access from remote networks (WAN) to the router's WebUI on or off.|
|Port||integer [0..65535]; default: 443||Selects which port to use for HTTPS access.|
|uhttpd certificate||- (interactive button)||In order to reach the router using HTTPS, you should first download the uhttpd certificate and add it to your trusted CA list.|
|Enable JSON RPC||yes | no; default: yes||Turns JSON-RPC access via ubus on or off.|
|RFC1918 Filter||yes | no; default: yes||Turns Address Allocation for Private Internets on or off.|
|Enable CLI||yes | no; default: yes||Turns CLI access from the local network (LAN) on or off.|
|Enable remote CLI||yes | no; default: no||Turns CLI access from remote networks (WAN) on or off.|
|Port range||range of integers [0..65534]-[1..65535]; default: 4200-4220||Selects which ports to use for CLI access.|
|Shell limit||integer [1..10]; default: 5||Maximum number of active CLI connections.|
The Safety section is used to manage the List Of Blocked Addresses. After a user attempts to login to this devices via SSH/HTTP, he will have a limited amount of retries in case of unsuccessful login attempts. This limit is called Fail count and is set in this page. After the user exhausts the maximum number of attempts, his IP address will be blocked from making more attempts and added to the List Of Blocked Addresses.
Block Unwanted Access
|Enable||yes | no; default: yes||Turns secure SSH/HTTP access on or off. If this is checked, devices logging in have a limited amount of tries specified in the Fail count field to log in to the router via SSH/HTTP.|
|Clean after reboot||yes | no; default: no||If this field is checked, addresses are removed from the List Of Blocked Addresses after every router reboot.|
|Fail count||integer; default: 5||Maximum login fail count after which the device's address is blocked and added to the List Of Blocked Addresses.|
List Of Blocked Addresses
The screenshot above is of a list that contains one blocked address. If you or someone you know gets blocked accidentally, you can unblock users from this section by deleting their IP addresses from the list.
Note: the list gets cleared after a factory reset.
The Diagnostics section is used to execute simple network diagnostic tests, including ping, traceroute and nslookup.
Enter an address in the Host field and execute one of the following actions:
- Ping - sends ICMP requests to the specified address.
- Traceroute - displays the path that packets have to take in order to reach the specified address.
- Nslookup - obtains domain name address and IP address mapping information.
The MAC Clone section is used to change the router's WAN MAC address. You can change the MAC address by entering a new custom value in the WAN MAC address field or click the 'Get PC MAC address' button to obtain your PC's MAC address and use it to fill the field.
In some cases access to a local network is protected by a MAC filter. For example, your company's main router may bind the MAC addresses of devices to the physical Internet sockets they usually connect to. In these cases only the device that is bound to the socket may gain access to the network. You can use MAC Clone to "clone" your PCs address and apply it to your router's WAN Ethernet port to gain access to such networks.
The Overview section is used to select which widgets should be visible in the Status → Overview page.
Simply select the widgets that you would like to view in the Overview page and click the 'Save' button.
RMS (Remote Management System) is a cloud system designed by Teltonika and intended for remote monitoring and management of Teltonika-Networks products.
In order to add a device(s) to RMS, get yourself acquainted by watching this instructional video and register an account by clicking here. Each unique device receives a free month-long RMS license when added to RMS for the first time.
The figure below is a screenshot of the RMS section taken from a device which has been connected to RMS:
|Connection type||Enabled | Standby | Disabled; default: Enabled||Defines how the device will connect to RMS:
|Hostname||host | ip; default: rms.teltonika.lt||Address of the RMS server. If you're using regular RMS, just leave the default address (rms.teltonika.lt).|
|Port||integer [0..65535]; default: 15009||Port number for connecting to RMS. If you're using regular RMS, just leave the default port (15009).|
The RMS server waits for incoming connections. Since the device attempts to connect at a fixed interval, it may not connect instantly after you add it to RMS. While it is disconnected, you can check how much time is left until the next connection attempt in the Status section:
To speed up the process by initiating an immediate connection attempt, click the 'Connect' button.
The Root CA section is used to add a root CA certificate file to the router. There is a default file already preloaded on the device which will be overwritten by any uploaded file. The certificates must be in .pem format, maximum file size is 300 KB. These certificates are only needed if you want to use HTTPS for your services and the default file should be sufficient in most cases.
