C6300BD/"Gateway Max" telnet on DLNA IP

Hi all,

A recently network scan on my C6300BD has shown that it appears to be listening on a second IP on my network ( A closer look reveals this to be the DLNA service on the machine. Interestingly, it also appears to be listening on 23 (telnet) and prompt for a username/password (not the default ones) on attempt to connect:

Nmap scan report for
Host is up (0.046s latency).
Not shown: 998 closed ports
23/tcp open telnet
20005/tcp open btx
MAC Address: E8:FC:AF:EB:7D:54 (Netgear,)

Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
(none) login: admin
Login incorrect
(none) login:

Can anyone shed some light on what the login details may be on this and how I would disable this service?

Was this helpful?

Hi nfs,


I have been advised that this is used to support any USB HDD attached. To disable this you will need to disable the DLNA feature within the modems interface.
