FAQ & Disclaimers
Why not use TR-064?
I have tried my use-cases with TR-064 several times but never succeeded, because at some point I would always receive an error. Hence, I wrote this tool in order to realize what I wanted to do. Your mileage may vary, and maybe for other Fritz!Box types or OS versions TR-064 might do the trick after all.
Only tested on Fritz!Box 7490 with FRITZ!OS 07.01
I was only able to test this tool on my own Fritz!Box so far.
Use with caution
Please make sure you know what you are doing. In case of not using this tool correctly, you might lose the connection to your Fritz!Box and have to reset your router in order to regain it.
