Connect to Fireware Web UI from an External Network

The Firebox configuration includes the WatchGuard Web UI policy. This policy controls which Firebox interfaces can connect to Fireware Web UI. By default, this policy only allows connections from Any-Trusted and Any-Optional networks. If you want to allow access to the Web UI from the external network, you must edit the WatchGuard Web UI policy and add Any-External to the From list.

In Fireware Web UI:

  1. Select Firewall > Firewall Policies.
  2. Double-click the WatchGuard Web UI policy to edit it.
  3. Select the Policy tab.
  4. In the From section, click Add.
  5. Select Any-External.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Click Save.
