    in short: create a firewall rule on the WAN-firewallrule-tab with
    source any
    source-port any
    destination WAN-address
    destination-port webgui-port

    Are you sure that should work? As I recall it I had to put my pfSense LAN address as the target to get it to work (after also having added NAT).

    NAT
    –---
    WAN  TCP  88  192.168.0.1 88

    FW rule WAN

    TCP  nn.nn.nn.nn/22  *  192.168.0.1  88

    Is the above setup not ok? (I mean it works, but that doesn't mean it's "the right way" necessarily).

    TIA



  • Your attampt should work.
    But dont set a source (i assume nn.nn.nn.nn/22 is your WAN subnet) otherwise you would have to be in this subnet to access the webgui.

    Yes I know, I have access enabled for one specific location and if I'm elsewhere I have to use VPN or RDP to another internal server first.
