Access Webgui from WAN location
I googled.. and read and tried several tricks non working
how do you access the webgui from a remote location using the https since right now OpenVPN Remot Access doesn't work right now
It's not allowed by default. You would have to create a rule on the WAN tab to let you in that way. But it's an awful idea to open that up wide to the Internet.
If you must, then setup a restriction so that it can only be reached from a specific remote address you control.
For a specific example, see https://www.netgate.com/docs/pfsense/firewall/remote-firewall-administration.html
ah ok reason i ask is i have a pfsense on at my house and my sisters house

and or would it be better to setup a vpnserver to access her house... but ill check out that link.. as i wanna be able to remote change her server and not have to drive couple hours to her house
A VPN would be best, but you can do something like this as a backup:
- Setup Dynamic DNS on both so you have a hostname that tracks whatever your current WAN IP address is
- Setup an alias called
RemoteManagementor something along those lines, and put in the dynamic DNS hostname from the other end. The firewall will periodically check and update the alias.
- Setup a remote access firewall rule using this
RemoteManagementalias as the source.
