stop pfsense logon redirect to dashboard



  • When I come back to my pfsense bookmark for LAN firewall rules, I get redirected to logon, then sent to the Dashboard.

    Is there anything I can change so when using the bookmark https:<mypfsenseipaddress>/firewall_rules.php?if=lan , I go straight to the bookmarked location after logon?

    Thanks for your help.

    No, because there are security issues with allowing a client to be redirected to a page after login. In most cases it may be OK but there are still a couple pages that allow changes via GET requests. If someone were to either bookmark a URL that caused a (potentially destructive) change or if an attacker tricked an admin into following such a link, it would be harmful.



  • Ok thanks for the response, and all you do for the project.
