Can you access it from the LAN interface?

Did you do this:

How can I access the webGUI from the WAN?

This is disabled by default for security reasons.

To enable this, first switch to HTTPS if you haven't already (System -> General Setup, change webGUI protocol). Note you may need to change the port number used by the webGUI if you port forward HTTPS on your WAN IP to an internal machine.

Then add a firewall rule on your WAN allowing the appropriate source(s) ("any" is highly discouraged for security reasons) to the destination WAN IP and port your webGUI is using.

by default, you can only access the WebHUI via a LAN NIC. if DHCP is enabled on that LAN interface, access the WebGUI via the assigned default gateway's IP address. Or perhaps via the DNS name "pfsense.local" - I think that's the default name...

If you only give it one interface in the initial CLI setup it will be labelled WAN and it will be open for connections to the webgui.
However that is a special case, as soon as you add another interface it will default back to blocking all incoming connections on WAN.
