Web interface Pfsense



  • please, I correctly install pfSense on VMware virtual machine I have a LAN address: 192.168.1.30 and WAN: 192.6.6.60.  for the local machine I put a static ip address 192.168.1.10. but I can not log on the web interface with  the LAN address(http://192.168.1.30) … I even tried with the WAN address but it didnt work.I hope you will help me. thank you



  • If you did not revert to HTTP it is HTTPS. Did you try that ?
    Further try to assign the IP address of the LAN interface again, using the console.

    yes I already tried that! :( thank you for your reply Nachtfalke



  • You wouldn't be able to use the WAN address for the GUI without firewall rules and/or NAT translations in place. I'm not too familiar with the VMware side (use Hyper-V mostly), do you have the right interface (LAN and WAN) assigned to the right network card? They should still be separate physical cards unless you have some special config or are trying to use VLANs.

    FWIW I had this exact problem with a 2.0BETA5 build on a firewall I built back in January. After several attempts and reinstalls I grabbed a current snapshot and it worked just fine. Not sure what the problem was, I had used the disc before with no problem so I don't think it was a bug in a snapshot nor do I think it was the disc. I was trying to access it plugged in to the wifi AP with my desktop on wireless but when that didn't work I pulled the firewall to my desk and used a small switch and made my own LAN (on a different range) and still no luck. So all that said, are you using a 2.0 build or 1.2.3?
