Cant get web access from WAN to work - help!
« on: March 06, 2012, 07:59:30 am »
Read a couple of posts here which said to add a WAN rule.

So added a WAN rule with :
proto:TCP
Source: My office external IP
port:*
Destination (the external WAN ip of the WAN port)
port: 8443 (the port the web gui is on.

Saved etc.

Did not work.

As we normally hit the web GUI through a local ip (e.g. 10.10.10.10), via a VPN, I added a NAT rule to map external wan port on 8443  to the 10.10.10.10 on 8443
Saved etc.

This did not work either.

Any ideas?

Ok, found the problem. Firefox was defaulting to http.  added https://externalwaipip:8443 and it works!

Didnt need the NAT rule in the end.
