Where is the web GUI on SG-3100?
Sounds like a stupid question, sorry.
Tomorrow morning I will disable the (setup by default) LAN, and I don't want to lose GUI access. (I have a backup of my current config so can restore via console if it goes bannana-shaped, but I would prefer to understand where the GUI "is").
I want GUI access confined to VLAN_123
...imagine 192.168.123.0/24 with pfSense at static 192.168.123.1
If GUI is (default) located on (default) LAN subnet .1, how do I move GUI to 192.168.123.1 ?
The webgui always listens on all interfaces.
If an interface has a pass rule to it, those hosts can access it.
@Derelict Excellent reply.
The hanging question is the "to it": where is "it"?
You need a pass rule on the interface you are connecting from to the firewall address on the webgui port.
This Firewall (self) - Any IP address assigned to any interface on this firewall (pfSense 2.2+)
If I setup e.g OPT1 for GUI access with FW rule
blah blah blah to This Firewall (self), HTTPS
Changing This Firewall to the static IPv4 of OPT1
…does not work
Then you are doing it wrong because it doesn't matter which one you use. Probably post both rules and the method of testing.
Crossed posts: now reading yours
OK, this will be tomorrow (it's bedtime here).
Thanks so far.
You made it clear enough: "The webgui always listens on all interfaces."
This morning: backup, disable LAN, and... YES: I still have GUI access from Cisco over trunk, direct from OPT1, (and temporarily direct from from WAN).
I'm in GUI from WAN (static at 192.168.8.1)
FW rules on WAN:
Pass IPv4 TCP 192.168.8.202 * This Firewall 443 HTTPS * none TEMP GUI over WAN
Pass IPv4 ICMPany 192.168.8.202 * This Firewall * * none TEMP Ping over WAN
Modify the TCP rule replacing
Single host or alias: 192.168.8.1
and it works (as you said it should).
Sorry to have troubled you. I'm switching between nine different IPs on my laptop -- must have been "doing it wrong" when I lost GUI on OPT1 during my experiments.
