Manage remote OpenWrt devices


I have some OpenWRT devices in my family houses. I use to open WAN 80 and 22 ports but this is not easy: ISP routers are not standard and dynamic public IP.

I want to have remote access without open any port in the endpoint side. I want to configure a centralized server accesible from internet and all devices will connect to the server.

I could do a SSH sesson from remote devices or create a VPN (Wiregurad) session.

Anyone have configured somethin like this? I don't want to have access to all my family network, just manage (web and cli) the remote devices.

Is this possible?

Kind regards.

for now something like zeroteir might be worth a look... (you are essentially asking about auto-reverse tunnels from multiple 'spokes' ... ssh-tunnel is also work a look)

there are various underlying features in the pipe to better support this requirement...

Thanks for the reply,

I try Zerotier, and it is exactly what I need. The free account is for 50 devices, this is enough for me.

Thanks for your great help.

Best regards.

There may be work in progress for some remote management thru OpenWrt packages.

PS. Shameless plug: 50 devices limit from zerotier is pretty generous, but there's also support for SlackHQ's nebula (without any limit whatsoever) in OpenWrt.

Very interesting options.

I read some nebula info, it really look great, I will try it later.

Kind regards.
