Hey guys, as i mentioned in the title, I am not able to access the router admin page over SSH tunneling. Here is what I did:
1. Enabled SSH over Key-pair authentication. Changed the Port and opened it to the internet using the router admin page.
2. Installed transmission-daemon and enabled webUI to be accessed from machines in the LAN (192.168.1.*)
3. Changed the router admin page port so that ConnectBot (android equivalent of PuTTY) can tunnel the port to my android device.
4. Set up two tunnels in ConnectBot, one for transmission webUI and the other for the router admin page.
Now i am able to access transmission-daemon's webUI perfectly fine over the SSH tunnel, but I am unable to access the router admin page. I am getting an error stating "The server failed to communicate. Try again later."
So, i set up PuTTY on my desktop in the LAN to tunnel from the router to localhost, exactly the way i had set up tunneling in ConnectBot on my phone. Even now, i was able to access transmission-daemon's webUI, but both Firefox and Chrome was unable to connect to the router admin page.
I guess this concludes that the admin page is not working over SSH tunneling. Is there any setting that I should enable for it to work? Please help me out here.
And thanks in advance. :)
