    I just updated to the latest firmware 1.3.98-tm and have noticed that port 8000 is open even though I have Remote Management turned off. Even by setting a firewall port block I can still see and login to the interface from an external IP. I do not want this. Enabling and disabling Remote Management has no effect, it is always on. Combined with the fact that the reported ability to change the admin user name doesn't actually work this is a problem, brute force attack can and will happen eventually.

    Anyone else confirm this on an RV082. I checked my RV016 with the latest firmware and port 8000 is not open when Remote Management is disabled.

    Hi pablito,
    Just tested now and no opened port other than explicit port I've open

    Thanks for checking. Now after flipping the option and ports a few times remote access is finally closed. I was worried for a while thinking the firmware had new show stopper bugs. I'd like to think that they didn't put all their focus on the protectlink option. I wish it wasn't in my face but I'm more concerned about real security.
