Access to captive portal by wan
I've implemented a captive portal with self registration and payment. This setup is located on location and now I want to see and change something on the CP.
I have external access by WAN to the webConfigurator, the SSH and also pass port 8000 in the pfSense firewall.
The pfSense server is behind a load balancer and the external ports are trigged in the load balancer to the pfSense server: Something like this:
WAN 1 –> LB --> pfSense --> LAN(CP)
xxx.xxx.191.54 --> 192.168.0.1 --> 192.168.0.3 --> 192.168.11.254
But this doesn't seem to work.
So when I go to my WAN IP from somewhere in the world:
xxx.xxx.191.54:8000 it is redirect to http://192.168.0.3:8000/index.php?zone=cp&redirurl=http%3A%2F%2Fxxx.xxx.191.54%3A8000%2F
Does I need to setup a VPN or are there any other solutions?
Thanks in advance for pointing me to the right direction.
Solved the problem by connecting the LAN by OpenVPN and checking the option 'Disable MAC filtering'
