1 Using the access method that corresponds to FRITZ!Box user rights
User accesses the FRITZ!Box from the home network
A user can only access the FRITZ!Box by entering http://fritz.box if that specific user was assigned the access right "FRITZ!Box Settings". Users who were not assigned this right can access the FRITZ!Box as follows:
Note:You can edit the access rights of FRITZ!Box users under "System > FRITZ!Box Users" in the user interface.
- Have users enter http://myfritz.box to access the FRITZ!Box via the MyFRITZ! home page.
Note:You do not need to set up a MyFRITZ! account in order to access the MyFRITZ! home page of your FRITZ!Box from the home network! A MyFRITZ! account is only required if you would like to safely and conveniently access the FRITZ!Box user interface from the internet.
User accesses the FRITZ!Box from the internet
The MyFRITZ! or dynamic DNS domain name of the FRITZ!Box (for example fritzbox.dyndns.org or pi80ewgfi72d2os42.myfritz.net) can only be used to directly access the FRITZ!Box if the respective user was assigned the right "FRITZ!Box Settings".
Users who were not assigned this right can access the FRITZ!Box as follows:
- Have users enter
- https://[MyFRITZ! domain name of FRITZ!Box]/myfritz
- https://[Dynamic DNS domain name]/myfritz
- to access the FRITZ!Box via the MyFRITZ! home page.
If the FRITZ!Box does not use the default HTTPS port 443, add the HTTPS port used by the FRITZ!Box to the domain name.
If HTTPS port 443 is used for access:
https://pi80ewgfi72d2os42.myfritz.net/myfritz or https://fritzbox.dyndns.org/myfritz
If a different HTTPS port is used for access:
https://pi80ewgfi72d2os42.myfritz.net:49478/myfritz or https://fritzbox.dyndns.org:49478/myfritz
