Under normal conditions it is wise to leave the Draytek full locked down for zero remote access. There are some situations, such as looking for the cause of problems, where we need to access this device for you.
In order for us to gain access to all of the web admin pages of the Draytek and debugging tools
Do not leave the default password as the password. And ensure no easy passwors, such as ‘password’ are used. If you do this we will have zero sympathy for the mess you get into. This is serious.
System Maintenance -> Administrator Password Setup
System Maintenance -> Management
Tick the “Allow management from the internet” and ensure the HTTPS server is ticked.

It is wise that the Draytek is also locked down. Ensure remote access is limited to a choice of IP address which is appropriate.
