I have been enjoying the use of my RRC 1258 setup for the past three years. The system has worked wonderfully however there was recently an equipment change at the radio side of the link.  A Sagemcom FAST 8250 router is now installed with the service provider being Spectrum (as before).  As a side note, the remote side and the radio side are both on the Spectrum ISP network. The remote side is still using an older Spectrum provided router.

The problem is that I cannot access the New router through the LAN, Spectrum as far as I can tell makes you use their mobile app to make changes to the router and they will not let you change ports for devices not listed.  In this case tech support is telling me that I cannot open ports for the Rig Remote box because it is not on their list of approved equipment.  I am looking for a reply from someone who has either encountered this situation with Spectrum and specifically the Sagemcom FAST8250 router.  Are there any workarounds to get into the Sagecom router to open/configure ports?  Any other workarounds that you can think of? 

It would also be possible to consider buying a cable modem/router that would allow me access to configuration info.  Is anyone doing this with Spectrum while using the RRC 1258 boxes?

Thank you...

I now have my remote rig working with the FT 857D.

Thanks to Mitch for his help!

Thank you for your reply.  I am able to retrieve information when i am connected to the control side and I hit the radio settings selection on my microbit webpage

Does that mean I am connecting to the radio?

Sorry for such simple questions, I think I am close to getting this working.  I am not certain that I have the DynDNS working right

Thank you again for your assistance,

I am looking for help from the group.  I recently purchased the Remote Rig 1258 MK2 and am "remoting" a Yaesu FT857D.  I was able to successfully operate the FT857D from my LAN to confirm that the jumpers have been set properly and the initial IP settings were correct.

The control and radio ISP provider are Spectrum.  I have configured port forwarding on both ends, both ports 13000-13002 and 80.

Can someone help me troubleshoot why I cannot connect using the FT 857D to the remote end?  I have Teamviewer running on a pc connected to the radio end of the remote rig so settings may be changed from my QTH.
