Learn more about Buffalo’s Remote Management Service here.
 

Remote Management Service allows you to access your Buffalo network devices from an external network and monitor them remotely, as well as consolidate users and devices into groups so devices can be better managed depending on the organization structure.

Registering the Service
You must be registered to Remote Management Service to use it. If you have not yet registered and would like to apply to use the service, refer to the URL below:

Each new MSP/End User account must be created by Buffalo. When created the system will generate an email to the MSP/End User’s registered email address with a system generated password.

The email will contain a link to the corresponding management portal.
