VPN service portal - Using the Shrew Soft VPN Client to set up a VPN connection to the FRITZ!Box
Opening the FRITZ!Box user interface
You can easily open the user interface on all computers, smartphones, or tablets connected to the FRITZ!Box by entering the address http://fritz.box in a web browser. Then you can configure all of the FRITZ!Box functions and view detailed information about the product, your access, and connections in the user interface.
You do not have to set up the FRITZ!Box to call the user interface. Internet access is also not required.
- You can either enter http://fritz.box or the IP address of the FRITZ!Box (http://192.168.178.1 in the factory settings) to open the user interface. In addition, you can always use the emergency IP http://169.254.1.1 to access the FRITZ!Box.
- It is not possible to call up the user interface when using guest access.
- Always enter the complete address http://fritz.box. If you do not include "http://" in the address, for example, the web browser may start a web search instead of opening the user interface.

- If you connected two FRITZ!Boxes, you can use the Mesh overview of the first FRITZ!Box to easily open the user interface of the second FRITZ!Box.
