Unable to access Web Configurator
I have suddenly lost the ability to connect to the webConfigurator on my pfSense firewall. I can SSH and ping it without issues, but cannot access it via the browser (Safari & Chrome on Mac were tried, as well as IE on Windows).
I’ve tried restarting the webConfigurator and PHP-FPM, no luck. The firewall is also working just fine….I just can’t access it using browser.
Firewall is running as a VM on VMWare ESXi.
Any recommendations thoughts on what else to check?
si your browser pointing to some proxy?
Did you just upgrade to 2.3.3?
I did and the next day, I did have Internet connectivity, but could not connect to pfsense.
It came out to be Suricata blocking my Untangle box (acting as a router after my pfsense box), but why all the sudden?
Seems that new Suricata rules came with 2.3.3 (why were they not there in 2.3.2p1?) that do a lot of checks in TCP, re-transmissions, etc.
So, you either configure Suricata to have one of your PCs, whitelisted, or you wait for the period that Suricata blocks a host, or reboot pfsense and
go check the Suricata blocks and start disablinc the rules that caused the problem.
What pfSense version?
What is the browser response message?
No proxy, upgraded to 2.3.3….and I think Suricata was running. Safari just says it can’t open the page
is there a way to configure or remove Suricata via cli? I will look a the manuals/doc....but if someone know of the top, would appreciate the tip :-)
See my post here: https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=126118.0
The 'pkg update -f' and 'pkg upgrade -f' commands did the trick. I'm back in the GUI and running fine.
Has nothing to do with Suricata if you can ping/access it via SSH. Is nginx running? Does it listen on port you are trying to access?
Perhaps try with a different browser.
