Setting up MyFRITZ! accesses

MyFRITZ! Accesses allow you to use any web browser to access browser-based applications in the FRITZ!Box home network, such as a web server or graphic interface of a NAS system, over the internet at any time. In this case, the FRITZ!Box's firewall continues to protect your home network from unwanted data from the internet.

Requirements / Restrictions

  • The server service must be reachable via a URI scheme (Uniform Resource Identifier), for example via http or ftp.
  • For IPv4 internet access, the FRITZ!Box must obtain a public IPv4 address from the internet service provider.
  • For IPv6 internet access, the FRITZ!Box must obtain an IPv6 address from the internet service provider.

Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.

1 Preparations

Setting up a MyFRITZ! account

Determining the port and internet protocol

  1. Determine the port the server service uses to accept incoming connections. This information can be obtained from the manufacturer, for example refer to the manual.

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:

  1. Configure the computer's firewall according to the manufacturer's instructions so that the server service can be accessed from the FRITZ!Box home network and the internet.

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 device that is running the server service.
  5. If you want to set up the access for an HTTP server, HTTPS server, or FTP server, select the corresponding server service from the "Application" drop-down list.
    • If you want to create a sharing for a different server service:
      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 "Scheme" drop-down list. If you want 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! access is set up and you can use an access link in the device overview on to access your server service.
