Remote Administering pfsense

To open the firewall GUI up completely, create a firewall rule to allow remote firewall administration – do not create a port forward or any other NAT configuration.

Example Firewall Rule Setup

  • Firewall > Rules, WAN Tab
  • Action: pass
  • Interface: WAN
  • Protocol: TCP
  • Source: Any (or restrict by IP/subnet)
  • Destination: WAN Address
  • Destination port range: HTTPS (Or the custom port)
  • Description: Allow remote management from anywhere (Dangerous!)
