Remotely Managing pfsense via SSH Tunneling

#1

Hi all,

I am following the steps from this youtube video you posted.
I typed ssh -L 10443:localhost:443 -p22222 admin@195.12.xx.xx When I go the http://localhost:10443/ I can see the pfSense page but when I type my username and password, I go in an infinit loop where I am prompt to enter my login again and again. I have no error on the pfSense login page and in my ssh console I get

Message from syslogd@pfSense1 at May 14 15:24:17 …
pfSense1 php-fpm[355]: /index.php: Successful login for user ‘admin’ from: ::1 (Local Database)

So it appears that I am login but I cannot see past the login page.

Did I miss something?

Thank you

Maybe remove your session-cookies?

You were right…
I switch to another browser and the issue is gone :slight_smile:
