Although most administration can and should be done from, you can optionally remotely access your Kibosh appliance directly. The benefit of this is having access to all advanced router features.

KRMU = Kibosh Router Management Utility

Step 1: How to enable remote KRMU access

  1. Log into your Kibosh at
  2. Go to System > Status
  3. On the status page look for the WAN IP Address. If the WAN IP Address starts with ’10.’ , ‘192.168.’, or ‘172.’ then this WAN IP is private, and you’ll need to complete Step 2 below because your Kibosh router is behind a primary router.
  4. Go to System > Router Access
  5. Enable Remote Web Admin Access and select HTTP
  6. Set the Remote HTTP port to 8080 (or 8888, 8181, etc)
  7. Save Changes
  8. Go to Status > Overview and write down the WAN IP

Now you can open any web browser and type in the following URL to administer the KRMU:

http://[WAN IP]:8080


NOTE: This URL will only work when not connected to the Kibosh routers LAN. For remote (outside the home / office) administration use MyFilter.
