We have a Smoothwall appliance here which is used for web filtering on our school network. We also have Ubiquiti Unifi access points with an offsite controller. In order to manage the controller, we need to be able to log in to it at
example.net here is the service provider -- me -- that manages the school's network and uses a single cloud Unifi controller for all of their clients).
While the VLAN that the access points themselves have their addresses on is not filtered, the office WiFi itself is filtered through the Smoothwall.
When I try to connect to the controller, Chrome gives me an error
I can connect successfully to plain
https://unifi.example.net/, so I know it isn't blocked by domain name.
When I use the Smoothwall "Policy Tester" tool with the
8443 URL, it says:
Error - Response: 403 Forbidden. Squid error: ERR_ACCESS_DENIED 0
When I put the regular (port 443) URL into the Policy Tester, it says there is no policy that explicitly allows or blocks it.
How can I allow access to the Unifi controller from the office WiFi through Smoothwall?
