iLO works over http/https, so you need to forward appropriate ports.
Beware that there might be some parts inside iLO which might omit returning the port part of URL when constructing a follow URL so if you're going to forward non-standard port (e.g. port 12345 on WAN side to port 443 on iLO IP address), you might have some issues.
BR,
Metod

I'd suggest making a VPN connection to the router, then accessing the iLo that way. It will probably be more reliable and secure.

If you do not wish to use a VPN and instead prefer to expose the iLo to the internet, please configure appropriate firewall rules to only allow access from trusted source IPs. Also be aware that some of the traffic may not be encrypted. Your sessions could also be subject to a MITM attack pretty easily.

There are many decisions to make when implementing a VPN solution. Here's some documentation on VPN options and configurations: https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Category:VPN

I would say use wireguard but tis only in beta right now, its apparently very easy to configure and is reasonably fast.
Are you going to be connecting from a smartphone, a windows PC ????
