Access webgui (Wan)

  • is there a way to access the webgui through wan I may of removed lan from the interface I do not have a nullmodem cable yet its on order  I have the netgate apu

  • OOPS.  I don't think you're going to be able to hit that box without a serial cable or IPMI (if exists).  Someone correct me if there's another method.  Having this external management ability by default, like many other off-the-shelf firewall solutions, could open the unit up to DNS re-binding type attacks.

    In hindsight, you CAN add a simple rule to allow administrative access via WAN.  Even though I have done this myself at a couple locations on non-standard ports, this is still considered taboo by many security folks (even though the webserver isn't actually bound to the external interface).
