I am trying to make a few changes on a firewall by connecting remotely to a desktop at work. I need to do a change that I think may reset and change the LAN interface.... I am worried about being kicked out and having to travel to work to reset it.
The wan interface doesn't need any change, so, I want to try to enable remote management from my IP, but, I am not having any luck.
Network > Interfaces, the HTTP and HTTPS box is checked for WAN...
...and also when I go to
Firewall > Access Rules > Wan/Wan I see an automatically created rulle for
Now, to diagnose, I had a constant running ping... When I either disabled ping under interfaces, or, changed the source away from any under firewall, the ping stopped.... so I am sure that this is where I need to make the change... However, I just can't seem to connect via SSH/HTTP/HTTPS...
All I can think of is that the WAN port is not a trusted interface, but, surely by enabling management, I overwrite that setting? ... Is there something hidden somewhere I need to do to enable remote management?
