How to access Cerbo Gx connected to a router?

I have been trying to access the cerbo gx's remote console connected a router but was unsuccessful. Is this function disabled int the Cerbo gx? I have tried port forwarding in the router and all the possibilties to connect to the remote console. I have access to all the other devices connected to the router. Thanks

If you are on the LAN side of your router, you should be able to bring up the GUI in a web browser by entering the IP address of the Cerbo. Sometimes "venus.local" also works.

You need to turn on Enable on LAN in the Remote Console settings.

If you want to see Cerbo on VRM, you need to turn on Enable on VRM and also set up VRM with Cerbo's VRM Portal ID.

You also need to make sure Cerbo is either connected to an ethernet port on the router or set up Cerbo to connect via Wi-Fi.

If you are trying to access from the WAN side of the router, you need to set up the following port forwards in the router to point to the Venus device:

22 TCP for SSH

80 TCP for the main GUI

9001 for the marine GUI (venus.local/app)

I know nothing about VPN but sounds like a plausible reason it isn't working.
