Connecting to Apple Airport Devices

Recommended Posts

jarret12

We have some customers that use Apple Airport devices like the Time Capsule routers or Airport Extremes. The only way to access and configure these is through the Airport Utility. Has anyone had any success connecting to these through Domotz? I read somewhere that the airport utility uses tcp 5001. Would I just open a tcp tunnel to port 5001 and then use Airport Utility from my office to manage their airport devices?

It is definitely possible to use the Domotz "Open a TCP Tunnel" feature to remotely connect to your Apple Airport device.

 

Please find below the instruction:

 

Apple Airport Utility Instruction

  1. Select the Airport device from the Domotz Pro App -> Device list
  2. Go in "Connect" tab
  3. Click on "Create a TCP tunnel"
  4. Insert the Airport Processor TCP Port. By default "5009" - please check in your system (might be 5001)
  5. Wait to have the tunnel setup
  6. You get two informations:
    • Host
    • Port
  7. Open Airport Utility program and:
    • Go to File > Configure Other
    • Insert the previously retrieved <Host_Address>:Port and the password

Awesome! Thanks for the prompt response.
