Vigor management Access List

For extra security, you can limit which remote clients that are able to access the router's management interfaces. This means, for example, that only a user on PC 194.143.123.12 can access the menus. You can allow external IP addresses. Once you enable this facility (by entering an IP address in one of the boxes) ONLY those IP addresses or subnets (ranges) you specify will be able to access the router's menus. For this reason if you are accessing the router remotely it is very important that you remember to include your own IP address/subnet too, otherwise you will lose the ability to access the router management yourself. In the screenshot above, we have allowed access from any local PC and then a single external IP address. If you do accidentally lock yourself out, you will have to access the router locally to get back in.
