HTTPS for remote access


HTTPS for remote access

It appears that the current (V1.0.0.88_9.1.77) firmware version does not support remote admin via HTTPS. I really don't like the idea of sending my password over HTTP to administer my WNDR4000 remotely.

Does anyone know if there is a way to get HTTPS support or if this is a feature that is "coming soon"?

I really don't want to deal with flashing dd-wrt on this. I'm trying to keep my life simple. But this might be the thing that tips me over to doing that.

I was willing to put up with the fact that I can't set a separate subnet for the "Guest" network, the non-guest wifi, and ether. And I was willing to put up with as the only dynamic DNS service supported. But remote admin over HTTP only seems harder to work around or accept.

I'm of the same mind as you. Its a ridiculous omission by Netgear to not allow HTTPS for admin access (local and remote).

remote i can agree with, local it's not an issue as you are behind the firewall. as far as a work around i use logmein and remote into my server when i need to do any changes when i'm outside the house. this is only an option though if you leave a machine running all the time.
