Define listen address for webUI

  • I run a pfSense with HAproxy and a lot (tens) of virtual IPs and the firewall disabled. HAproxy listens on port 443 on almost all these virtual IPs, but some are empty for now. When I try to access port 443 on these "empty" IPs, I get the pfSense webConfigurator.

    I would like to give pfSense a list of IPs the webConfigurator can listen on, aka decide which Listen directives are written in /var/etc/nginx-webConfigurator.conf.
    There doesn't seem to be any way to do this in the UI as it is now, it seems to be hardcoded on : <port>and [::]: <port>Does anybody know a way to define the listen address?</port></port>

    No way in the GUI. Move the WebGUI out of 443 and put it behind HAProxy as well.

  • Thank you for your solution!

    I was considering using a different port for the webConfigurator, but I feel it makes my setup a bit convoluted. Is there a feature request to fix this, or should I make one?

    There has been a feature request for so long that I don't expect it's going to happen, ever.
