|I agree 100% with never allowing remote (or wireless in the case of a wireless SOHO router) to a router's management interface. I never have, I never will.|
If however I should ever find I need to say, access the SOHO Router in my house from an external location (like from work), I can.
I have a port forward for RDC setup in my router. This forward eventually ends up at my primary XP box.
So, if I wanted to remotely administer my router, I would RDC in to my XP box from the remote location. While RDC'd in to my XP machine I would open a web browser on that XP PC in my house and type in the IP of my router and voila, I'm in the router..........with external access shut off.......yet through the RDC session I'm able to remotely access in a much safer fashion then enabling remote access into the router directly.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
