5106Re: Problems accessing LS outside LAN
- Apr 25, 2006I'm anticipating this would solve my problem, but I can't login to
find out. I'm assuming I need to telnet the WAN IP address to get into
configure the modem itself to include the LS's IP address as a
nameserver? I either have a different username/password for the modem
than I thought I did or I don't have access to do this. If I can
figure out how to login, I'll let you know if this works.
