Options for remote access to Gargoyle

Postby throughwalls » Mon Sep 09, 2013 9:19 am

I plan to put a router in a high bandwidth remote location, configured to use OpenVPN. I would like to be able to securely remotely administration of the router.

If I enable SSH access to the router, can I use that to tunnel in to the Gargoyle GUI, or am I forced to use the command line?

Or can I fully disable SSH access and come in over the VPN, and then do administration over that connection?

Is there any reason to enable HTTPS if I have the other options?

What is best practice in this area, other than minimizing the attack surface? This is the first time I will have enabled remote access to a router.

I bought another router to test this. It seems to work well.

Has anyone done any testing of relative performance of the different block encryption options? namely blowfish and AES in 128 and 256 bit
