I recently switched to the FreePBX distro, after many, many happy years of Trixbox. When attempting to harden FreePBX for external internet access, I discovered that https-server is not running. I would normally change “Listen 443” to some other port, and then disable unencrypted traffix (Port 80).
You should not expose the web interface to the Internet under any circumstances. I can’t think of any reason.
Options - Setup an SSL VPN
Option 2 - Use the SSH tunnel option in Putty, (very easy). You open the SSH session and you browser connects to Putty as a proxy. The HTTP requests go across the tunnel. This even works for other devices on any reachable network from the machine you are ssh’ing to.
Option 3 - Only open http to trusted remote hosts using an access list on firewall
Hi, SSL is enabled by default so its a tad odd - however when you redirect 443 you can get some “notice errors”. i usually use a firewall to redirect in order to avoid any internal issues (redirect some oddball port to 443, but ignore inbound 443 requests).
didn’t see another request and its been a week or so, did you get this solved.
