PostPosted: Thu Oct 19, 2006 9:41 pm    Post subject: RTP300 Remote Access Reply with quote Back to top

I am looking to be able to access the router remotely and block the Voip ports, which would disable the phone when not at home.

The situation: Ok say you are living with other people you don't want using your phone, now what? There is no disable feature I can find for Vonage and taking the handset wherever you go is a pain. And unplugging it is useless since they just plug it back in. Locking your phone up in a box might work, again a pain.

So where is the "Device Access Control" page so I can enable remote access and disable the sucker. I know it has been hidden since it is not where the manual says it is. I can't find the URL for the specific page, cause then I could do it since I have the login information Vonage uses for the locked features.

Unless I missed something, ie they moved the remote access page or something. All I need is remote access to diable/enable the phone ports. A simple On/Off feature in the Vonage user account page would be nice.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Is there a phone number to which you can forward your Vonage number? If so, you can control it from the account page.

Well I did find the remote access page, it's on the "Advanced" tab instead of the "Access Resrictions" tab like the Manual shows. More on this....

I can forward the number but doesn't that just prevent incoming calls? I tested that and I could still make a call. I want to be able to prevent incoming and outgoing calls, is there a way to do that with call forwarding?

Back to the remote access, I set it up but can't seem to block the ports for Vonage. I tried blocking the ports that are listed on the Vonage website and when that didn't work I blocked all ports 0-20000 and it still worked, what the heck? Is there no way to block the Vonage ports so the phone won't work? I know I could put a second router in front of it and block the ports, but someone could just unplug it and hook the RTP300 back up without it.

There has got to be some way to block or disable the service......besides cancelling it. lol

One method is to get a different router that provides some sort of access control or access policies, put that in front of the Vonage box, and then set the Vonage MAC address to be allowed or denied Internet access.

Of course, if someone is clever enough, they could simply unplug the Vonage box and move it upstream of the router. If you're having THAT much trouble with it, you might want to give up the fight and get an unlimited plan then block international calling (or just take the Vonage box with you).

You may also look into locking phone cables - there used to be a device that fit in a phone jack and required a key to remove. I haven't seen one in a while, but I can't imagine they'd be terribly hard to find.

You could also purchase a second device, and transfer the Vonage line to that device on Vonage's web site. If the second device is not plugged in, your Vonage line should stop working. Then, when you need to, just transfer the line back to the active device and you are good to go. Of course, that is as expensive or more expensive than simply getting a different router...

So I am guessing by your responces there is no way to block the Vonage ports in the RTP300 settings, the service will always work. And what address do you have to put in for the remote access? I tried the WAN address + :8080 and it didn't work.

I am asking all this for someone else, but I also have Vonage. It is to bad I can't transfer their line to my device and set it to go straight to voicemail.

I considered the 2nd router idea since I have 2 spares sitting around, but like you said they can just bypass it.... I might try this, they aren't tech savvy so it might work.

I think an On/Off feature in the account settings would be excellent, I wonder if it has been mentioned....

Vonage now has a feature that allows you to switch service back and forth between adapters from your account page. Unfortunately, doing it that way you require that you invest in another adapter (which would stay hidden away somewhere).

Yeah that is what NateHoy suggested as well, I think I will try the additional router idea, enable remote access and block the RTP300's IP addy. I don't think they are smart enough to unplug the adaper and plug it directly into the modem.

But what IP address do I have to use to access the router remotely?

You use the WAN IP address, usually on port 8080 by default, i.e. http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8080, but this assumes that A) You either have a static public IP address or you have a way of determining your current public IP address (plenty of ways to do this); and B) Whatever device the cable modem is plugged directly into is configured to forward 8080 to the device you are wanting to remotely access (assuming 8080 is the port).

No problem, your explanation was a lot clearer than mine.
