Cant connet to WAN (x700)



  • So, I installed the software on an old fireguard x700, it booted and installed just fine. I was able to access the we UI using the LAN port, but as soon as I plug in a live ethernet cable into the WAN port I cant even connect to the web UI. if anyone knows how to fix this please let me know,

    Help is very much appreciated

    See my reply to your PM. Better to post here though.

    Hi Mark.
    That is the expected behaviour. By default all unsolicited incoming traffic is blocked on the WAN interface. That should not stop you accessing wan side resources (like the internet!) from the LAN though.
