PfSense WebGui not accessible from PPTP client
I cannot access my WebGui from a PPTP VPN client. But I can ping the pfSense box as well as other devices in the LAN behind it.
I had Squid installed, which I suspect is mucking things up. There was one occasion where I was able to access the WebGui, and I went to the Services page and stopped Squid. After that, I can again no longer access the WebGui. Wish I hadn't stopped squid and tried something else. I'm off site and can only try to communicate with the box via the good VPN connection.
I tried using PuTTY to ssh to it (over the PPTP) but no success. But I'm not familiar with PuTTy, so I don't know whether I'm doing it the right way. I'm not even sure whether ssh is enabled on the box or not.
So, does anybody know how I can "hack" into this box with just a good PPTP connection? I just want to kill Squid properly so I can have access once again to the webgui and devices I have behind the fw.
If you can get an SSH session to a box behind the the pfSense firewall, Then you can configure a tunnel for 127.0.0.1:xx80 to your pfsense:80 using the standard putty features.
Connection / SSH /Tunnels
Source port xx80 Destination pfSense:80 Add Apply.
Good luck ..
