New: Secure Remote Access to FRITZ!Box User Interface

With the new firmware users now can offer others secure remote access to their FRITZ!Box user interface via HTTPS. This means friends from outside the network can connect with the user interface of FRITZ!Box to help configure special settings. And users can adjust their settings even when they're away from the computer.

To take advantage of this function, simply go to "Internet / Remote Access" in the FRITZ!Box menu and select "Enable remote access via HTTPS". Click the button to have a password generated.

Then only the IP address of the FRITZ!Box and the generated password must be entered to gain secure access to the FRITZ!Box user interface.

The new firmware for the FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN 7170, 7140 and for the FRITZ!Box Fon 5124 is available as a free download. It also features completely reworked and optimized DSL drivers.
