GUI: How can I enable remote management (e.g. HTTPS Management) on the SonicWall?

If you want to enable remote management of the SonicWall security appliance for an interface, select the supported management protocol(s): HTTP, HTTPS, SSH, Ping, SNMP, and/or SSH. You can also select HTTP for management traffic. However, bear in mind that HTTP traffic is less secure than HTTPS.
NOTE: The HTTPS service cannot be used with the firewall's WAN IP address to pass traffic to an internal web server when allowing remote administrative access. Regular HTTPS rules can be written for an HTTPS server using any other WAN IP address.
CAUTION: The SonicWall will not respond to HTTP/HTTPS management traffic on a published Static ARP IP address.
The following example demonstrates the procedure to enable HTTPS management on the WAN Interface, however the same steps apply to HTTP, SSH, Ping, SNMP, and/or SSH:
Click Edit icon for an interface (e.g. WAN / X1 interface) .
Select HTTPS in the supported management protocol(s) section. NOTE: If you want to allow selected users with limited management rights to log in to the security appliance, select HTTP and/or HTTPS in user login.
Click OK. You may substitute another interface for the WAN in the above instructions. You will now be able to access the SonicWall using the WAN IP address. In the browser, use https://publicIP of the SonicWall .
