FRITZ!Box 6840 LTE – Service

Setting up MyFRITZ! Accesses

MyFRITZ! Accesses allow you to use any web browser to directly access server services (for example HTTP Server or FTP Server) in the FRITZ!Box home network at any time. In this case, the FRITZ!Box's firewall continues to protect the home network from unwanted data from the Internet.

Requirements / Restrictions

  • The FRITZ!Box must obtain a public IPv4 address or an IPv6 address from the Internet service provider.
  • You must be able to access the server service with a web browser (for example Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer).

Important:Some of the settings described here are only displayed if the advanced view is enabled in the user interface. The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS.

1 Preparations

Setting up a MyFRITZ! account and configuring it in the FRITZ!Box

Determining the port and Internet protocol

  • Consult the manual or ask the manufacturer to find out which Internet protocol and port the server service uses to accept incoming connections.

Configuring the computer's firewall

If the server service is installed on a computer with its own firewall (for example Windows firewall), you must also configure the firewall:

  • Configure the computer's firewall so that the server service can be accessed from the FRITZ!Box home network and the Internet.

    Note:You can find information on configuring the firewall in its manual, or consult its manufacturer directly.

2 Setting up MyFRITZ! Accesses

  1. Click "Internet" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Permit Access" in the "Internet" menu.
  3. Click "New MyFRITZ! Access".
  4. From the "Network device" drop-down list, select the network device that is running the server service.
  5. From the "Application" drop-down list, select the server service (HTTP Server, HTTPS Server, FTP Server) you would like to release for access via MyFRITZ!.
    • If you would like to set up a MyFRITZ! Access for a different server service, select "Other application" and enter the following information:
      1. Enter a name of your choice for the MyFRITZ! Access in the "Name" field.
      2. Select the Internet protocol for accessing the server service from the "Schema" drop-down list.
        • If you would like to configure a sharing for a different Internet protocol, select "Manual entry" and enter the access scheme (for example "ftps://").
      3. Under "Port", enter the number of the port on which the server service will listen for incoming connections from the Internet.
  6. Enter a directory in the "Directory (optional)" field (for example \\Folder1\Folder2\) if required by the server service.
  7. Click "OK" to save the settings.

Now the MyFRITZ! address that can be used to access the server service from the Internet is displayed in the FRITZ!Box user interface under "Internet > Permit Access > MyFRITZ! access settings".
