NethServer Version: 7.4
Module: Server manager
tl;dr: The server manager on my Neth 7.4 installation seems to be accessible over the red interface, which doesn’t seem right.
I have Neth 7.4 installed on a Contabo VPS with a single NIC to the Internet. That interface is configured as red. I’ve added a dummy interface following the instructions here, given it an RFC1918 private IP address (192.168.4.1), and configured it as green. I’ve also set up an OpenVPN connection to my home LAN*, and added that network (192.168.3.0/24) as well as my home LAN (192.168.1.0/24) as trusted networks in the server manager.
I first thought it was odd that I could ssh from home to the public IP address of the Neth instance, but didn’t pursue it further. But while traveling last weekend (i.e., away from home, and not connected to the VPN), I found that I’m able to pull up the server manager remotely. Should it be this way? I wouldn’t think so.
- I wasn’t able to get this working through the server manager, so I uploaded the .ovpn file to /etc/openvpn/client/, enabled it with
systemctl enable openvpn-client@pfsense, and started it up with
systemctl start openvpn-client@pfsense. It appears to be working properly, though I’d like to figure out how to manage it through the server manager–but that’s another thread.
