I was wondering what some methods are for trying to log into routers remotely, I know if you're on the same network you can type http://192.168.0.2 or whatever. But how about if the router is far away? I was thinking, http://ipaddress:8080 or whatever port the router is running on. Sorry if this is a stupid question but I can't find any docs on this and its been bugging me for a while. Thanks.
Well I am no expert but have you tried sending packets to this user through different ports? He/she could have ports already forwarding.

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe you would have to have access to a system already on the network (to get access to the internal network), from there you could run a comand like ipconfig/ifconfig, get the address to the router, and telnet to it from the compromised machine (or use lynx to view the webpage for the router it if doesn't have telnet access functionality.) From there you could maybe set up the router to forward it's own services (like telnet and http) to the outside world. Then you can do whatever you want to the router without needing access to a machine on the network
