From subnets, I can access pfsense GUI by using my public address.

  • Found a strange behavior.. Not sure if this a security issue, or if I messed with something in my configuration.
    From my WIFI vlan, I was able to open the pfsense GUI by using my WAN public address.

    To stop this, I had to create a firewall rule to block WIFI to WAN address.

    Is this a expected behavior?

  • LAYER 8 Netgate

    Yes. Block access to This Firewall (self).

  • Thanks for the reply Derelict.
    I have been configuring my firewall rules since a long time, just blocking access to internal networks, including subnets gateway, ports 80,443,22.
    Now, I will include block to wan address as well.
