Plusnet One hub (remote admin)

To remote admin my old plusnet box I used to ssh (via a port forward) to a linux box on my home network and then ssh tunnel port 80 back to the modem using putty e.g  -L 80 192.168.1.254:80 this worked fine.
Just installed the plusnet One Hub (e.g. the BT home hub), but this is not working it keeps giving me a 403 error. (e.g. the port forward is working) I have try adding -L 443 192.168.1.254:443 and changing the host file on my windows desktop (away from home) to have 127.0.0.1 bthomehub.home (desperation setting in)
Has anyone else worked out how to get this working?
I believe the BT  home hub requires the hosts file change as it expects the webbrowser "Host:" header in your HTTP request matches what the hub expects to see. In the BT case bthomehub.home  or 192.168.1.254 and not 127.0.0.1  Does anyone know if the plusnet hub one has a host name, putting 127.0.0.1  192.168.1.254 in my host file does not work.
Thanks

Re: Plusnet One hub (remote admin)

solved it,  Cheesy
For others out there. the name of the plusnet one hub is dsldevice.lan  (found out be nslookup 192.168.0.254 while pointing at the one hub)
so I just needed 127.0.0.1 dsldevice.lan in my hosts file an to use http://dsldevice.lan in the web browser.

Re: Plusnet One hub (remote admin)

Thanks for this, I was a confused as to why this didn't work but you have resolved it!

routerstatshub (http://vwlowen.co.uk/RouterStatsHub/routerstatshub.htm) may be of interest to you; it graphs the SNR, speed, attenuation and data rate figures from Troubleshooting > Helpdesk. I have this running on a LAN machine and can RDP in to it over ssh in a similar manner to that you describe below to view the data.
