Re: R7000 telnet enable

I've got the same problem.  I don't see an option on V1.0.9.88 and other telnet enable methods don't seem to work.

   Some models (none of mine) seem to have a Telnet-enable option on
some kind of "debug" page in the management web site, but I doubt that
the R7000 was ever one of them.

 

> [...] and other telnet enable methods don't seem to work.

 

   "other telnet enable methods"?  "seem"?


   "other telnet enable methods" or "don't seem to work" is not a useful
problem description.  It does not say what you did.  It does not say
what happened when you did it.  As usual, showing actual actions
(commands) with their actual results (error messages, LED indicators,
...) can be more helpful than vague descriptions or interpretations.

 

   There was a similar report a while ago about Telnet-enable failures
on an R7000, but there were no useful details there, either, so it's
hard to be sure of much:

 

      https://community.netgear.com/t5/x/x/m-p/1585142

 

   Given the rate at which Netgear injects new bugs into router firmware
(perhaps especially into R7000 firmware), and the generally useless
Release Notes which accompany each new bug set, it's also hard to know
if any such feature disappearance was accidental/negligent or
intentional.

 

   If you have more time for R7000 firmware experimentation than I do,
then you might try exploring older firmware versions to see if this is a
new problem (and how new it is).

 

   Dare one ask what you'd do if you could use Telnet to talk to the
thing?

Re: R7000 telnet enable

   I found some old (2019-01-14) notes which suggest that I did some
testing on this problem.  (I thought that I had, but failed to find the
evidence until now.)  They suggest that my NTE program worked with
"V1.0.9.42_10.2.44", and failed with "V1.0.9.60_10.2.60".  I doubt that
I tried anything released since ".60".

 

   Just one of the enhancements made since "V1.0.9.42_10.2.44",
apparently.

Re: R7000 telnet enable

My apologies, my response was lazy.

 

I want to use telnet to replace VPN keys.  The methods I tried are those described in this thread:

https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-WiFi-Routers/Netgear-R7000-and-OpenVPN-for-Android-App/m-...

 

In particular, I tried the telnet enable method in this attachment:

https://community.netgear.com/ejquo23388/attachments/ejquo23388/home-wifi-routers-nighthawk/89094/1/...

 

The method simply had no effect.  I don't think the router is listening for the magic packet as afterwards it was not accepting my telnet connection.

 

As it turns out, I also tried what appears to be your own mechanism:

http://antinode.info/nte/index.html

 

That resulted in:
nte: FAIL.  No ACK message received.

Re: R7000 telnet enable

Same problem and done same steps than @rollsISU , I also tried this video:

Neither works
