r6700v3 - any way to remotely manage advanced settings?

Remote management doesn't seem to be an option anymore without using the Nighthawk app. But I can't find a way to change advanced settings like port-forwarding in the app. Is there no way to manage these things remotely now?

Netgear has changed things over the years in response to security concerns.

 

Why is the Remote Management feature being removed from NETGEAR routers? | Answer | NETGEAR Support

 

Another way of "tunneling in", ReadyCLOUD, also died recently.

 

Support for ReadyCLOUD feature ends spring 2023 | Answer | NETGEAR Support

 

Maybe you could see if something like a VPN would let you carry on with this feature. Then again, your router, never one of Netgear's most powerful, is getting old. 2018 with its roots in a device from 2014.

Have a running PC at the same location at the router and install a remote access app like Team Viewer or Remote Desktop and then access the routers web page thru the remote PC.
