WebGUI Timing out Port is Open & SSH is Up



  • Hi,

    I have lost WebGUI access from the WAN and LAN ports.
    In testing with a port over to the socket used for Web Access Port 5443, I am creating a session.

    The recent changes that have been made to the FW were the addition of a Site-to-site VPN. However, this was added several days before I lost WebGui access.

    I am able to gain access via SSH.
    However, in performing the changes to restart the WebGUI and those listed in:
    https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Locked_out_of_the_WebGUI#Blocked_access_with_firewall_rules EXCEPT Disabling the Firewall rules.
    This is a production FW and I do not want to apply these commands.

    See below for a snippet from the XML. 1.2.3.4 to signify the WAN Port.

    helpdesk@helpdesk-PowerEdge-SC440:~$ telnet 1.2.3.4 5443
    Trying 1.2.3.4…
    Connected to 1.2.3.4.
    Escape character is '^]'.

    ^]
    telnet> quit
    Connection closed.
