Getting onto Pfsense from WAN side

  • Hi,

    I'm sure it must be possible.

    But does anyone know if it's possible to connect into your Pfsense box box from the WAN side ie over the Internet?

    If so what changes do I need to make on my Pfsense box to enable me to be able to do this?

    Many thanks in advance.

  • you need to check out "port forwarding" under "firewall" then "NAT".  Add your rule accordingly then go back and verify that the firewall rule is in correct order on the WAN interface.

  • If you mean access to the web interface, it's been covered (lots) before, but…
    Add a firewall rule destination WAN address port 443 (you have switched to https, right?)
    Better still is to limit the source to an alias containing all the ips/networks you connect from.
