Restore GUI access?

Post by drjaymez »

Hi all. I've somehow disabled gui access. Probably by checking the wrong box somewhere...

no trouble to ssh in as root

I followed the instructions here:
https://www.gargoyle-router.com/phpbb/v ... ?f=6&t=580

except, the file I edited is called firewall.user as I couldn't find a file just named firewall. Also this command

Code: Select all

/etc/init.d/firewall.user restart
failed with permission denied.

I did a hard reset on the router after saving the file, but still can't get in via the web.

Any thoughts? I'd hate to lose all my config...

THANKS!

I'm running 1.5.10 on an ar71xx/usb_large

There should be /etc/config/firewall file. The code posted in other thread, won't work, if It's written in firewall.user file.
