Disable WAN interface Web UI
The Pfsense WAN interface is accessible over 443. How Can we disable this access to Web UI of the pfsense from WAN public IP
pfSense does not allow access on WAN as long as you do not add a firewall rule manually allowing it.
@viragomann my guess is he is accessing via the lan side..
Which yeah with the any any rule on lan this would be accessible.
If you do not want the gui to be accessible via a lan side network, you would need to block it specifically. Pointless on the lan if the anti lock out rule is in place. But on other interfaces. A good alias to use is the built in "this firewall" this can be used to block access to any IP of pfsense, even if they change - like say a wan IP..
Yeah, that's an option of course. I was thinking of this and reread the part "from WAN public IP" twice and toke it as "from WAN interface".
Also not sure if he added a rule for allowing TCP 443 to WAN to forward it to a server behind. In this case it would be a good advice to change the web configurators port to any other.
