- Enable SSH on the modem first.
- Prepare the Telnet service at the modem as usual.
- To establish the tunnel, use the following SSH command on your Enterprise Alert node:
ssh -L 5000:localhost:5000 admin@[IpOrDnsNameOfYourModem]
Afterwards you can set up the notification channel in Enterprise Alert as always, however make sure to connect to localhost:5000 instead of the modem itself. This passes requests through the secure tunnel instead of taking the direct (and unsecure) way to the modem.
