  • Add firewall rules as desired on WAN.



  • for security reasons i suggest to use a vpn tunnel.



  • No matter the method, make sure you are using HTTPS to manage the FW, and not HTTP, if using a self signed cert, for better security, install the certificate on each computer that you will manage it from, that way you will get an alert only if the cert has changed
