Question
How do I setup remote access in my SBG6700-AC? 
Answer
By default, access to the SBG6700-AC configuration menu is only accessible from the local network.  However, the SBG6700-AC can also be configured to be accessible from anywhere on the Internet.  Whereas local access uses port 80, remote access uses port 8080.  This document contains the following sections:
 
NOTE 1: The ports used for local and remote access cannot be changed.

NOTE 2: The remote access feature is not available when the unit is in "Bridge" or "NAPT Disabled" mode.

To Verify IP Address for Remote Access

NOTE: Like all devices on the Internet, the gateway has an IP Address on the Internet.  The WAN IP Address is assigned dynamically, verify with the Service Provider for the correct IP Address. 
  1. Launch a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari.  Enter http://192.168.0.1 into the address box, and press the Enter key.  The Login page appears.
     
    NOTE: By default the LAN IP address is 192.168.0.1.  If the default address has been changed, enter the custom address in the address box.
     
  2. On the Login page:
    a.   Enter admin in the Username field.
    b.   Enter password in the Password field.
