you will have to set up a rule that allows remote management. There should be a HTTPS Management entry in the wizard. Just configure the IP addresses and Allow. You could always remote into a local machine and hit the router from there, if that is an option.

hope this helps.

Under "Network", "Interfaces" click the Configure-Button of the "X1" Interface (WAN).
In the "General" Tab, enable the Checkbox "HTTPS" under "Management". Click OK.

For more security:
Go to "Firewall", "Access Rules" and show policies for "WAN to WAN".
Change the policy with Service "HTTPS Management" to allow as Source-only the public IP of your off-site office.

Cheers
