Telnet/SSH to Openreach HG612 Modem Not Working

Go to solution

Afternoon,

 

I have unlocked HG612 modem with the Web GUI installed.  However I'm not able to connect via Telnet/SSH for whatever reason?  Does it have to be enabled anywhere?  I can ping the modem, and access the Web GUI with no issues at all. I have noticed that the Firewall setting is set to 'standard'.  Does this need to be set to 'Disabled' for it to work?

 

My setup is:

 

Asus RT-AC68U Router --> HG612 Modem --> Phoneline.

Have you tried connecting directly to the modem, as in bypassing the router?   I don't use an OR modem but to access the DrayTek it needs a direct connection.

Telnet access is still admin/admin even if you have changed it in the webgui

I don't even get as far as being prompted for credentials.

What address are you attempting to access, it will be 192.168.1.1

Connect LAN port2 to a LAN port on your router.

Well I changed the address of my modem so that it tied in with the rest of my network, so I access my webgui using 192.168.0.2...and that is the address I am trying.

LAN Port is connected to router as I can access the webgui perfectly fine. What should the firewall setting be on the modem?

Didn't change mine from default, in France at the moment so can't check actual settings.  I can telnet fine using Putty without changing any settings on the modem.
