Support » Plugin: Visual Form Builder » Firewall issues

    When trying to use the “Visual form builder” plugin my firewall (Watchguard) says:
    “Request denied by WatchGuard Firewall. Reason: IPS detected for “WEB admin.php access/Access Control”

    When I look this up I get this answer: http://www.snort.org/search/sid/1301

    Have you encountered this before? Have you got a solution?

    A recomended action from snort.og is this:
    “Disallow administrative access from sources external to the protected network.”

    What is best practice for getting the plugin running in a secure manner?

    Sorry, I have no idea how to help you here. I suggest contact the firewall people for help with this.

    OK, I will.
    I thought you´ve heard of someone else with the same problem.

    Does the plugin get access to admin.php? Does it need it? Are you changing that file in any way?

    That’s a generic WordPress page that lots of plugins use. It needs it, yes.
