Connect to the Firebox Authentication Portal

Applies To: Cloud-managed Fireboxes

If you add Firebox users or add an authentication domain to a cloud-managed Firebox, users can authenticate to the firewall. This is called firewall authentication. To authenticate, users can connect to the Firebox Authentication Portal on port 4100.

For information about how to configure user authentication for a cloud-managed Firebox, see: 

For information about how to enable users to connect to the Authentication Portal, see Enable the Authentication Portal on the Firebox.

If you configure the Firebox with more than one authentication domain, the user must select the authentication domain when they log in. For authentication to the Firebox database, the domain is Firebox-DB.

To authenticate as a user, from an internal network:

  1. In a web browser, go to https://<Firebox internal network IP address>:4100.
    The Firebox authentication page opens.

  3. Click Login.
    If the credentials are valid, authentication is successful.
