It's easy to access the telo's GUI interface by pointing a browser to the telo's IP on your LAN, providing port 80 is being forwarded iform that IP to 172.27.35.1,bja wrote:The telo has a number of Router related functions, but doesn't have an obvious option to select bridging mode, to be able to utilize the second ethernet port in a lan configuration. Also, the telo web ui (http://setup.ooma.com/) could then be managed from either network port.
Yes -- what you suggest is that both ports be assignable to a switch. Many routers have such a function. But the Telo, while it has some router functions, is at best a terribly crippled router. That's one reason why I consider it insane that Ooma even suggests putting Telo between the modem and a router. It belongs behind a real router. In my case it is behind a router, a wireless access point, and a wireless client bridge. Works very well that way.bja wrote:It would still be a nice feature to allow the use of both interfaces on the telo as lan ports, which is what I was [alluding] to with my question.
