Anyone else end up having their pfsense box web UI become available via WAN? Was locked off but after setting up pfblockerng it's now available. How to set up a manual default deny rule? Think I'm being stupid haha
Fyi. If you try to access the web interface from your phone which is connected to wifi you can get into the web interface with your public IP. If you disconnect from wifi you will no longer be able to see it.

@euphotic:matrix.orgEuphoticYeah I fixed it now, turns out in my NAT rule for one host, I left one section as 'WAN Address' rather than specific host. 22:16:59

@monkeybizness:matrix.orgmonkeybiznessHi, on a SG2100 I have configured all my switch interfaces as OPTN , can I disable the LAN interface now as no device is linked to it or is it still needed to support the OPT interfaces?06:50:29

Can you access the web interface with the IP assigned to the opt interfaces? If so you can remove ip assignments from the lan. Check connectivity. If opt is a vlan off of lan port the interface needs enabled but does not need IP if opt is port lan can be shut off. You can always revert config versions via serial console if it breaks
14:46:18
@monkeybizness:matrix.orgmonkeybiznessYes I can access the interface from the opt ip. I have dedicated vlan for each opt port. I'll try first to remove assignment on lan , and then try to disable it. Using the console is a good idea indeed :)14:49:14

A raspberry pi is a nice remote console too. I use a Netgear router running tomato in "bridge" mode with my pi attached with a static IP. If I get cocky and break my router I can statically assign my phone ip, ssh into my pi and use gnu screen to get to the console. It's actually neat to see since the user i ssh into is set up to launch screen then exit in basrc. I came up with that idea after Facebook blew up their network and got locked out of the building.

@monkeybizness:matrix.orgmonkeybizness coryc257: This is my home network so i wouldn't run into that kind of issue. But how to ssh into your pi if the router is fubar? 14:56:26
@coryc257:matrix.orgcoryc257Statically assigned IP. The pi and the phone are both connected to a Linux based router in switch mode (tomato firmware). 14:59:08
@coryc257:matrix.orgcoryc257The Linux router is connected to pfsense appliance14:59:32
@monkeybizness:matrix.orgmonkeybiznessoh, ok so those ip are not behind pfsense. Indeed no dependency there15:00:08
@coryc257:matrix.orgcoryc257Yup. But when the router is up they still comply with pf sense rules and whatnot(ips, firewall blocking)15:01:25
@monkeybizness:matrix.orgmonkeybiznesssounds nice15:03:59
@monkeybizness:matrix.orgmonkeybiznessI just started with pfsense and router/firewall in general. It's a bit of a learning curve :)15:05:07

If your set up pfblockerng-devel or suricata/snort make sure you account for all the disk io.
