Restart Your Firebox from the Web UI

You can use Fireware Web UI to restart your Firebox from a computer on the trusted network. If you enable external access, you can also restart the Firebox from a computer on the Internet. You can also set a time of day for your Firebox to automatically reboot.

Reboot from Fireware Web UI

To reboot the Firebox, from Fireware Web UI:

  1. Connect to Fireware Web UI for your Firebox.
  2. Log in with a user account that has Device Administrator credentials.
  3. Select Dashboard > Front Panel.
  4. In the System section, click Reboot.

Before you can connect to your Firebox to manage or restart it from a remote computer external to the Firebox, you must first configure the Firebox to allow management from the external network.  For more information, see Administer Your Firebox From a Remote Location.

For information about how to schedule a reboot at a specific time, see Define Firebox Global Settings.

In Fireware v12.5.2 and higher, you can restart a Firebox from the WatchGuard Cloud Device Summary page. For more information, see Reboot a Firebox.
