Firewall blocking access to admin interface (1 post)

    Hello, we have set up a blog using wordpress but can't access the admin interface due to our firewall.

    I found this link which gives an explanation of the issue:


    However IT are unwilling to create a new header response rule to match the pattern *wp* as it is too general - does anyone know where to find a find a descriptive list of WordPress headers? Or alternatively any other solution to accessing the admin interface through a firewall (turning it off isn't an option unfortunately).

    Our firewall is a “Watchguard x750 firewall with weblocker”

    Thanks in advance
