How do I access the WebGUI?



  • I have seen alot of people saying to access the WebGUI, but what if you cant?  I have reset the password and restarted the webconfigurator from the console, but still can't get to the web interface.  I have attempted to go to http://192.168.10.254 and also tried going secured to https://192.168.10.254.  I continually get a cannot be found page.  I am not prompted for a username or password.  I am a complete noob when it comes to pfsense and am taking over a client that has pfsense running with trixbox on top of it.  I need to change the passwords on both the pfsense and trixbox, but don't know where to start.  If anyone can point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.

    Also I can ping the LAN side of PF and have already tried resetting the LAN adapter.



  • at the console do option 2.
    keep the settings the same.
    but really resetting the webConfigurator password from console will ask you if you want to revert HTTP settings which will revert it to http with the default port.

    see sticky on this forum

    I have reset the password and LAN adapter.  What default port does it use?  I was just trying the default port 80 and 443 for secure, but neither presented a login box.



  • then i suggest you do one of two things:

    1. contact the person who was managing it before you
    2. run nmap from a local machine using the command: nmap -p- -A 192.168.10.254
    this may take some time, it will scan all tcp ports and try to connect to them to see what is running, look for a port that responds with:
    "PortNumber/tcp open  ssl/http lighttpd"
