Good day

I have recently setup a base installation for my Endian firewall with all neccessarry rules etc.

I have a netgear DGN200 router configured with port forwarding and a dyndns account assigned to the router.I can get on to the remote management console on the router no probs and have setup a additional port forward rule to the endian firewall from the netgear router.

i.e. Internet--->Netgear Router(Ip address 192.168.10.1 port forwarding port 10443 --> Endian firewall (ip address 192.168.10.2).

This is my problem when I telnet to test.dyndns.org 10443 from the green network it connects no probs but when I telnet outside i.e. at home or outside the lan I cannot connect.

Even if I go to the browser https://test.dyndns.org:10443 outside the LAN doesn't work but inside it does.

Any Ideas or is there another way I can manage to access the EFW web admin console page from the internet?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I would suggest setting up a VPN connection on your laptop or home pc to your company.  Once you have successfully VPN into your company and have aquired a local address you can access your firewall as if you were at your desk or in your server room.

You can enable remote access to your Endian Firewall by going to:

Firewall > System Access.

Select "Add a new system access rule".  For Source address, you can put in IP addresses of specific networks that will be able to access the firewall.  For instance, if you wan to access the firewall from work only, put in the public static IP address of your work.  For the initial test, leave it blank.

For Source Interface, select either RED or ANY. Internal addresses will already be able to hit port 10443, so I would just select RED.

Select TCP from protocol, and destination port 10443. Service will be User Defined.  Select to ALLOW with IPS and apply the rule.  You should be good to go from there but would highly suggest locking down access to only specific public IP addresses or networks.
