Access web interface on WAN

Hey there,
I‘m using an OpenWRT Device as OpenVPN Gateway in my home network. My setup looks like this:

Internet -> WAN port of internet router,
LAN Port of internet router-> WAN port of OpenWRT router,
Device connected via wifi to OpenWRT router

The setup works as it should. But I want to be able to access the OpenWRT router from my internet router‘s network. For example to change settings.

I followed this guide https://superuser.com/questions/1084177/cant-connect-via-luci-or-ssh-from-wan-side-network-to-raspberry-pi-1b-running-o and added a traffic rule for WAN on port 80, but the webinterface just does not show up.

Can you help me, please?

sure you don't want to use your openwrt device as a https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/network/wifi/dumbap ?

if not, post your /etc/config/firewall

Try to access the OpenWrt router from its wan side, to make sure there are hits on the firewall. Then please run the following commands (copy-paste the whole block) and paste the output here, using the "Preformatted text </> " button:

What openwrt version are you running?

cat /etc/openwrt_release

OpenWrt 21.02.3, r16554-1d4dea6d4f

Not what you were asked to post.

You didn't paste the block of commands properly. Try it one more time, don't change anything.

This works from a clean install:

uci add firewall rule
uci set firewall.@rule[-1].name='Allow-Admin'
uci set firewall.@rule[-1].enabled='true'
uci set firewall.@rule[-1].src='wan'
uci set firewall.@rule[-1].proto='tcp'
uci set firewall.@rule[-1].dest_port='22 80 443'
uci set firewall.@rule[-1].target='ACCEPT'
uci commit firewall
service firewall restart
