How to Enable Telnet fo the FritzBox

Simply use the file on this page as a Firmware Upgrade.

This will *not* upgrade or change the firmware at all,but only start the telnet daemon.

Switch from Annex B to A and vice versa


If you are in Switzerland and using an Analogue ADLS connection, you must change the Annex of your Fritz Box :

telnet fritzbox
echo annex A > /proc/avalanche/env
echo firmware_version avm > /proc/avalanche/env
/sbin/reboot

 

Of course you can always change this back :

telnet fritzbox
echo annex B > /proc/avalanche/env
echo firmware_version avm > /proc/avalanche/env
/sbin/reboot
