On Jul 1, our VR1600v reset itself to factory defaults.
This router is at a remote location, so I drove 1 hour to fix it. I configured all the router again and everything was working fine once again.
Now, we pay an extra $10 per month for a fixed IP because we need to expose CCTV cameras so we can monitor the property.
This is done by port forwarding a number of WAN ports to a CCTV server on the internal LAN.
On Jul 2, this feature of port forwarding stopped working along with the ability to remote manage the router.
Under System Tools | Administration | Remote Management, I have the remote management enabled checkbox enabled. Please see the attached screenshot.
Here's the peculiar thing; I can access the router via this external IP when I am connected to the LAN.
When I try this from an external location, I am unable to.
Have TPG changed anything to their security settings to block remote access?

The router is managed by a CWMP (CPE WAN Management Protocol, also called TR-069) allows Auto-Configuration Server (ACS) to perform auto-configuration, provision, connection, and diagnostics to this device. So, it is possible that TPG is conneccting remotely and changing setings...
