Default Re: ### Unlocked Firmware For Bt Business Hub (2wire) 2700hgv ###

Hi Folks,




Secondly, by default the firewall on this box allows BT to remotely administer the router from their call centres. Whilst talking to a BT engineer in "Network Support" he dialled in (without my knowing) and started changing my settings for me. When I realised what he was doing and suggested he asked for permission he became apologetic and logged out but I'm not allowing that TBQFH.

My questions are: Does the Gui interface get better with this firmware upgrade? and Does the firmware upgrade close off the firewall properly?
