Overview


To access UTM over GUI from internet or outside of the network, it is required to enable ‘Appliance Access’ features in UTM.


If this features is enabled along with proper firewall policy applied in UTM, administrator can able to access UTM remotely using public IP address which is configured on UTM interface.


Scenario: 



Configuration

 

The Admin page lets you control appliance access over http or https ports, specify the maximum number of login attempts and specify the password strength for the administrator profiles.

 

1. Navigate to System > Administrators > Users. The Admin page is displayed.


2. Check HTTP/HTTPS and save. (You can use any random free ports to access UTM GUI. You must mention those ports)




Note: It’s advised to set strong password for UTM GUI access.


3. We will have to create rule in either inter-zone settings or in custom rule.

 


4. Select ‘HTTPS_WebAdmin_Portal’&‘HTTP_WebAdmin_Portal’ services from existing definition and apply it on WAN Zone to UTM Zone.



5. Open Browser and write down the public IP along with port to access GUI remotely.


HTTP :  http://50.0.0.1:88          [Where, 50.0.0.1 = Public IP  ]



Note: This public IP should be configured as WAN interface of UTM and should be active.


HTTPS: https://50.0.0.1:543      




Verification


1. You can verify if these TCP ports 88,543 are open by accessing this port checker website Ping.eu > port check by entering the Wan interface IP of UTM and these TCP ports.




2. Also you can check by doing Telnet on that Public IP with port.



Note: If you want to take http and https access through LAN then you are not required to configure any rules. You can enter LAN interface IP and port of UTM in browser address bar. Browsers supported Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, IE etc.
