VMG1312-B10A: AAISP Configuration
AAISP configure routers via TR-069 protocol. We generate a config file and this is sent to the router. Firmware updates are also able to be sent to the router.
Customers are free to alter the configuration as supplied, sending a configuration from the Control Pages will overwrite any settings changed though.
Here is an overview of the settings that are modified from the default, you can sort the table by the date added column to see any new changes.
