Remote Administration Access in IPCop not working?


According to the IPCop manual, if you want to control IPCop remotely you have to add port 445 (https) on the external access. I tried doing as instructed but nothing is happening. I also tried to add port 222 but the same thing occurred. When you port scan the machine, it says that the ports 445 and 222 are closed. How do I open this port so that I can access IPCop remotely?

Found a solution on your problem. In IPCop, enable SSH and port-forwarding. And on the external access be sure that you allow port 222. On remote location (your laptop connected to other network), type in the following:

ssh root@ipcopserver -N -L 445:localhost:445

In your webbrowser, what you need to do is type in


and there you go..

I just hope IPCop will enable remote access even without doing the SSH Tunneling.

I am sorry. Use https://localhost:445
