Remote access WEBIN and Putty

This document will guide you on how to access your WEBIN or Raspberry root shell (Using Putty) from a remote device outside the LAN



Procedure: #

Enabling Port-Forwarding in Router #

1. Open the browser and type the gateway IP address of your router in the address bar and hit enter
(In my case it is 192.168.1.1 you can find the gateway IP for the router by typing ipconfig in the command prompt)

2. Enter the username and password on the Gateway login screen (Default username and password is admin in most cases)

3. Click on Login, once inside search for the Port Forwarding option under the available titles. In my case, it is located under “Application

4. Fill in the details as mentioned below:

Application Name: Skip this (Leave the default selection)
WAN Port: 888 ~ 888
LAN Port: 80 ~ 80
Internal Client: IP Address of your device (Raspberry Pi, Windows, Linux)

To find the IP address for Raspberry press CTRL+ALT+F1 login
to root (User name is root and password saleculator) and type
ifconfig -a and press enter.

Protocol: TCP/UDP
Enable Mapping: Select this (Optional)
WAN Connection List: Skip this (Leave the default selection)

Click on the Add button

5. Once added the status will be displayed at the bottom. Like mentioned in the image below

6. Repeat step 4 to enable port forwarding for putty as well
(The only difference this time will be the WAN Port 887 and LAN Port 22, rest all the steps will remain the same)

7. Once both ports are enabled the status will be displayed at the bottom. Like mentioned in the image below

8. Logout of the Gateway Screen
