    remote see the web interface from the internet

    Hello friend.first post here,i hope i get some help. Also,excuse my english it's not my native language.
    I want in a Konika Minolta C220 to access its web interface from anywhere on the planet. BUT i dont want to install any software on a computer in its lan.
    can i do what i want??
    i thought to add a DDNS like no-ip.com and access the copier with the name i will have on no-ip.com.
    BUT in a PC this would need the no-ip's software (updater) .
    is there a way i can use it in the copier directly without the need to install some software to a pc?

    thank you in advance

    Hi,

    Welcome to the forum.

    Not sure why you want to connect that way but must have a reason.

    Connect with USB cable. Not sure if you can access the web page with USB connection?

        You would have to give the machine a public facing IP and add it to the DMZ..Like a company broadcasting it's website for general public use..I can't imagine any decent IT guy allowing this, but hey, what do I know. this is probably a gold mind to a hacker..E

            Set up a VPN appliance and then a tunnel to your location.

                Remote into a local computer and navigate from there.

                    Yes but if you're not allowed to install software on the PC, that begs the question as to what you're up to. Because it sounds like you're trying to get around protocols already in place to prevent people doing exactly what you want to do.

                      I don't want to sound harsh but this is such an old machine & most browsers are not supported. For a start you would need to update the firmware then most likely you could use Chrome this is all before you work out how to access it remotely.
