Allow remote access to GUI through terminal


(United States) #1

I have installed FreePBX on a server located in a datacenter with an external IP address. I was wondering how I could access or make the GUI accessible from outside the local network as I only have experience accessing it locally which can’t be the case here. Thank you

If GUI access is not working, it is likely blocked by FreePBX firewall, or by the cloud provider’s firewall (if any).

You can enable your IP address in FreePBX firewall by typing at a root shell prompt
fwconsole firewall add trusted 1.2.3.4
(replace 1.2.3.4 with the public IP address of your PC)

See your cloud documentation for their firewall.

If you still have no access, check that apache is running.

If still no luck, post details about your observations, cloud provider, including error messages from browser, etc.
