Register a Vigor Router to VigorACS 2

To manage and monitor a Vigor Router from VigorACS server, you need to register it to the server first. The CPE (the router at the customer's site and you would like to manage remotely) registration requires allowing TR-069 access and having the correct TR-069 parameters. STUN settings may be necessary if the CPE is behind a NAT device, for example, another router. Also, make sure there are no firewall rules blocking the traffic to the VigorACS server.

First of all, make sure the Network group setting on VigorACS 2 server is ready. You could go to SYSTEM MENU >> Network Management to create your own network group (which you want the CPE to join) then specify the username and password of this network. Please keep the username and password of this network in mind.

Configuration of the Router

1. Go to System Maintenance >> Management, check Allow management from the Internet, and make sure TR-069 Server is also checked.

2. (Optional) Enter the IP address of the VigorACS server at Access List from the Internet so that the Internet Access will be restricted to the VigorACS server only.

3. Go to System Maintenance >> TR-069, and have the settings as below:

  • Enable TR-069
  • Select the interface where the ACS server locates for ACS Server On
  • Click Wizard, then enter the IP address or domain name, port number of VigorACS 2 server in the pop-up window, with the handler /ACSServer/services/ACSServlet. It is strongly recommended to use HTTPS protocol so that all the communication between CPE and VigorACS 2 will be encrypted.
  • Enter the Username and Password of the network group on VigorACS 2 you would like the router to join.
  • Select the "HTTPS" for CPE Client
  • Enable Periodic Inform so that the router will send its status to the VigorACS server periodically.
  • Click OK to save the settings.

(Optional) 4. If the CPE is behind a NAT device, for example, a router. STUN (Session Traversal Utilities for NAT) setting will be required. When STUN is enabled, the router will initiate a UDP session to a STUN server, which the VigorACS server can use to locate and communicate with CPE. In fact, VigorACS 2 can act as the STUN server. If the CPE is behind NAT, set up the STUN settings as follows:

  • Select Enable
  • Enter IP address or domain name of VigorACS 2 server in Server Address.
  • Type the STUN port, the default is 3478

5. After saving the configuration, we may click Test With Inform to check the connectivity between the router and VigorACS 2 server. A green light indicates the CPE has got the reply from the servers, which means the communication between the CPE and the server has established.

6. On VigorACS2 Dashboard, we should see the CPE appear on the New Device widget. Click "+" to confirm and add the device to the network. 

1. Go to System Maintenance >> Access Control, select "Enable" for TR069 Allow.

2. (Optional) Enable Access List and add the IP address of the VigorACS server to IP List so that the Internet Access will be restricted to the VigorACS server only.

3. Go to System Maintenance >> TR-069, and set as below:

  • Enable TR-069
  • Select the interface where the ACS server locates for ACS Server On
  • Click Wizard, then enter the IP address or domain name, port number of VigorACS 2 server in the pop-up window, with the handler /ACSServer/services/ACSServlet. It is strongly recommended to use HTTPS protocol so that all the communication between CPE and VigorACS 2 will be encrypted.
  • Enter the Username and Password of the network group on VigorACS 2 you would like the router to join.
  • Select the HTTPS for CPE Protocol
  • Enable Periodic Status so that the router will send its status to the VigorACS server periodically.
  • Click OK to save the settings.

4. After saving the configuration, the router will send a Test Inform to check the connectivity between the router and VigorACS 2 server. A green light indicates the CPE has got the reply from the servers, which means the communication between the CPE and the server has established.

5. On VigorACS2 Dashboard, we should see the CPE appear on the New Device widget. Click "+" to confirm and add the device to the network.
