Access router webpage after setting port forwarding to an HTTP server?

I recently set up a home web server and used my router webpage to set a port forward to it.

 

Now, when I enter my public IP address, as I used to to access my router webpage, I am simply forwarded to the web server's homepage. This is as expected.

 

My question is: How I would go about accessing that router webpage now? Is there a specific port I should point to to access it?

 

Thanks in advance.

I assume you are trying to connect the VZ router from outside?

 

If that is the case you may want to connect to the router from inside the network: 192.168.1.1

 

then choose 

Advanced

Remote Administration

Then choose one of the ports available.  I would assume your Webserver is using port 80?

If so choose 8080 as an example.

 

Then from the outside you would type:

http://<IP_ADDR>:8080
