Is it possible to access the Mushroom Networks unit without being directly connected?

Remote Web Interface Port

The BBNA Management Interface can be configured so that it can be accessed externally from the Internet via the BBNA WAN ports. To enable this feature, go to the “ADMIN” tab and click on the status indicator of the “WAN HTTP Port” entry in the displayed status table. The pop-up window allows configuration of the feature. If the feature is enabled, a port number must be specified.

If the feature is enabled, the BBNA Management Interface can be remotely accessed from the Internet through any of the public IP addresses for the BBNA. These public IP addresses can be obtained from the “External IP” column in the WAN status table on the HOME tab of the BBNA Management Interface. The URL through which the BBNA Management Interface can be accessed is given by the external IP address appended with the assigned port number. For example, if one of the external IP addresses for the BBNA is 76.211.117.87 and the Remote Web Interface is enabled through port 8080, then the BBNA Management Interface can be accessed through the URL http://76.211.117.87:8080

If the Pass Through mode is enabled on WAN interface 1, and this feature is enabled, the BBNA Management Interface can be accessed externally from the Internet through the IP address of the Router/Firewall connected to the LAN port of the BBNA. For example, if the IP address of this router is 76.37.181.2 and the WAN HTTP Port is enabled through port 8080, then the BBNA Management Interface can be externally accessed through the URL http://76.37.181.2:8080. Note however in this example that from a host on the LAN of the BBNA, packets addressed to 76.37.181.2 will be forwarded to the Router/Firewall and not the BBNA. To access the BBNA Management Interface from the BBNA LAN, the BBNA LAN address should be used, e.g the default BBNA LAN address 192.168.254.99.

If the WAN HTTP Port is enabled, then it is highly recommended that a web interface password be configured to prevent unauthorized access to the BBNA from the public Internet.
