This post title says it all, if you are stuck and have access to the pfsense console then get to the Shell with “8” and execute a “
pfctl -d” where the -d will temporally disable the firewall (you should see the confirmation in the shell “pf disabled”, where pf is the packet filter = FIREWALL)
Now you can log into the WAN side IP address and govern the pfsense again.
NOTE: any changes to the firewall rules or reload of the firewall rules will enable the firewall again, you can always disable the firewall from console again if needed. James, same procedure as every year …
