Weird (Firewall Rules) Problem



  • Here is the deal. I just installed v2.0.2 on my box and I'm able to access the box via the LAN port (192.168.1.1).
    All is great and everything works like a charm when it comes to accessing the various drop downs to configure.
    Specifically, the Firewall->Rules section.

    Now when I go to change the LAN interface to 192.168.2.1/24 and log back in via the LAN, all other drop down
    sections come up, except for Firewall -> Rules.  When I click on the Rules under Firewall all I get is an empty page
    that appears to be attempting to load the gui you'd normally see. But for whatever reason, when I change the
    LAN port away from 192.168.1.1/24 to 192.168.2.1/24, the Firewall->Rules section is no longer accessible.
    And when I change it back to 192.168.1.1/24 and log back in, all is fine and I can see the firewall rules section.

    What on earth could be going on?

  • That is strange. Try changing the LAN subnet and rebooting and see if you have the same problem.

    I did that and I got no love. Really weird. I'm gonna mess with it one last time this coming
    weekend and see what is causing this issue.

    Thanks for your response.



  • When I switch to using IE, it works. When I use Mozilla, it won't display anything under Firewall>Rules.

    Weird…  Any ideas on what browser feature/flag might be the culprit?



  • That is indeed odd - normally when I struggle with UI problems its because I'm using IE - switching to Firefox, Chrome, or Safari allows it to behave normally!



  • Sounds like the weird things that can happen with stale cache from previously accessing a different device on that same IP.

    Good one. Let me clear out my browser's cache.  Thanks,
