After a few seconds, the registration will complete and you will see your new Service in the list.
Add an SSH Service on port 22

Use the same approach as before, but choose "SSH" for the Service type and 22 for the port value.

This will proceed to launch a terminal or command prompt window, along with the SSH command.  You'll see the normal confirmation message.  Enter "yes", followed by the password.  You're in!

Connect to the OpenWrt web interface

Use the same approach to connect to the HTTP service that will take you to the OpenWrt device's web interface.  This time, click on the arrow icon that appears after the connection is established to automatically open your browser.
