WAN access to webGui
I use NAT rule to redirect to server within the LAN the 80/443 TCP/UDP ports. It's possible access from WAN to WebGUI pfSense on another port?
2 things to do(maybe 3):
1. allow firewall rules for the new port.
2. Change the port it is listening on.
System -> Advanced -> Admin Access
Change TCP Port to the new port.
3. Apply settings and restart?(never changed port so I don't know if there is something to do to make the change happen after applying)
If WAN is public / internet connection it is highly discouraged to open it up for WebGUI access. Just asking for trouble. If it is a must have then additional filtering measures are a must. Even then still very much discouraged.
Many people use one of the VPN services to access the LAN. And there by have access to the WebGUI via the LAN side. I use OpenVPN service.
