Update 2.1.5 to 2.2 - no connection to web server
I use 2.1.5(i386),everything works perfectly.
After auto update to 2.2(without any installed packages) i dоn't have access to may web server any more from outside network.
From inside network webserver is reacheble through IP:192.168.2.160
There is a one single rule for webserver in NAT with which worked on 2.1.5
I tried with clean install 2.2 ->restore configuration,no changes
What am i missing?
I tried the same thing on my pfSEnse 2.2.
First, it didn't work …. because the WAN firewall rule (auto-added when making the NAT rule) was added at the bottom of the firewall-rule-list, just after 2 "block all" rules.
Moving the firewall WAN rule to the top did it for me.
I could access the Web interface from the 'outside'.
Assuming the WAN IP in question is the IP you're using to access the forum, it works fine. If I browse there, I get a "Welcome to nginx" page.
How many people would have to visit that to totally make his web GUI completely unresponsive for him?
I always wonder about this. Would it take a DDOS effort or just like 10 guys going to the site and pressing refresh… refresh... repeatedly
how I succeeded:
*moving the firewall WAN rule to the top/down(which makes no sense to me)- not working
*delete/recreate rule in NAT - same result
*change admin access port from 80 to 8080,create rule in NAT(without moving anything)…..working 8)
just for the record:
i don't know how,but if i change again admin access port from 8080 to 80,web server continues to be accessible from 'outside'
anyway,thanks for help,i appreciate it.
-in 2.2 i lost startup/shutdown/login beep
