How To Reach Ooma Device Config Page When BEHIND Router?

Post by TechNoid665 » Thu Nov 05, 2009 6:59 am

OK gents, I'll preface my question by letting you know I've just been through 10+ pages of search results combing for the answer...

I have decided so far to put my Ooma behind my router, not in front of it as suggested. It has been assigned an IPA by my router of 192.168.50.101. However, on my LAN when I attempt to go to http://192.168.50.101, it does not reach my Ooma config page.

How can I reach my Ooma config page? Is there a certain TCP port I need to use?

Thank you.
Jason
My configuration: Purchased Ooma Core (Hub & Scout) for $204 from Amazon and put online 11/5/09; utilizing my own external answering machine; Ooma Hub is behind my router; Comcast ISP gets me 10+ mbs DL, and 2.7 mbs UL; Not using the Scout.

Put the Ooma's home port IP address into the Ooma's DMZ - you need to temporarily connect a computer directly to the Ooma home port to do this. You can then access it with 192.168.50.101 from another computer.

That worked beautifully and was a snap to set. Thank you very much.
