    I want to have access to http://my_wan_ip:5000/webclient outside from my office but I get an error webpage 403 Forbidden (nginx). Is there any settings to web console to allow connection to webclient using WAN IP?

    Hello @Manos Val

    Please note that Nginx only allows Https connections from external locations for security reasons. So to access your management console using your Wan IP you will need to use https://my_wan_ip:5001/webclient and bypass the unsecure connection warning that you will get as the certificate will not match.
