In the manual and on this forum I have come across the dire warning:
Do NOT enter anything in the external IP/host field! Yet my the external address of my router has spontaneously appeared in this field, I think after I for the first time managed to access my radio from an outside location? (which, by the way, was a magical occasion). So what do I do? Leave it, or heed the warning and remove it?

The warning says do not enter anything in that field, which isn't the same as you removing what the RRC has put in there itself  ;)
Always include type of hard/software and version when asking for support.
