It is designed to work with the TP-Link TL-WR1043ND broadband router. A custom OpenWRT firmware is provided to simplify the connection of your network to your SysAdminMan VPS, securely and without the hassle of NAT.
STEP 1 – DOWNLOAD THE CUSTOM FIRMWARE
Download the custom firmware for your router from here – https://sysadminman.net/blog/firmware
STEP 2 – PLUG IN THE TP-LINK WR1043ND
- Plug a PC/Laptop in to the yellow port 1
- Plug the blue WAN port in to a spare port on your existing internet router
* While every effort is made to test the firmware provided no responsibility can be accepted if you use the firmware above and it renders your router unusable. This is always a risk that is taken when flashing any new firmware to a device *
You must log in from a computer connected to a yellow LAN port.

Default password : admin
Select System Tools / Firmware upgrade and then choose the firmware image you downloaded above –
Click upgrade and the new firmware will be loaded and the router restarted. Do not disconnect the power while this is happening!! –
STEP 4 – RESET YOUR COMPUTER OR RENEW YOUR DHCP LEASE
You will now need to get your computer to pick up a new DHCP address from the TP-Link TL-WR1043ND. This will be in the range 10.99.99.X. This can be done by either rebooting, pulling and reinserting the network cable or running the command to renew the IP address. Please note that the WiFi is disabled on the TP-Link TL-WR1043ND firmware so you must use a cabled connection.
SETEP 5 – LOG IN TO YOU TP-LINK ROUTER AGAIN
Default IP address : 10.99.99.1
Default username : root
Default password : sysadminman
STEP 6 – ENTER THE SYSADMINMAN VPS CONNECTION DETAILS IN TO YOUR TP-LINK ROUTER
For this step you will need the IP address of your SysAdminMan server plus the 3 files that will be sent to you separately. The 3 files are called ca.crt, tplink.crt and tplink.key.
Click on Network / SysAdminMan and you will see the screen below. Enter your SysAdminMan VPS IP address in the box provided and upload the 3 files. Ensure you upload the correct file to the correct place. Then click Save & Apply –
Next reboot the router. There is an option to do this under System / Reboot –
Now if you log back in and select Network you should see that the ‘SYSADMINMAN’ interface has been assigned an IP address of 10.98.0.X –
STEP 7 – FINISHED!
And that should be everything. Now any device connected to your TP-Link should be given an IP address in the range 10.99.99.x and be able to connect to your SysAdminMan VPS server using the address 10.98.0.1 over the secure OpenVPN tunnel.
Also, any phone that is connected to your TP-Link that has auto provisioning set will be given a TFTP server address of 10.98.0.1, your SysAdminMan VPS address. This means that you can use the FreePBX EndPoint Manager module to configure your telephone handsets.
