I can't turn the admin option on my adsl from external sourc

I've pretty much sorted on my setup of my samsung adsl ATH-E300 router.
the problem i have is that if i entered my public ip add. from a friends pc i would get my routers password logon.
now i have tried everything..... and i don't know where i'm going wrong.

the option WAN side HTTP server is disabled ( which i thought was the option to stop this happening....

can anyone help?

Your message is rather contridictory, or it might just be the way I have read it.

You state you want to enable remote administration. So you can admin the router from a friends. Is this right?

If yes. Then the setting you have set as disabled (example from your post), should be set to enabled.

Does the router have built in firewal/filters?
If yes. Is there a filter blocking connections from the wan port.

Have you set the router to forward port 80 connections to another machine on your network?
If yes, then this will make port 80 connections on the wan port, bypass the router, and go into the network. Setting the remote admin port to somthing else will get around this.
