Honey Pot behind an SMB appliance (IP 600)

Hi there,

Network Setup :

- ISP router connected to the firewall WAN interface

- A freshly installed Honey Pot (MHN - Modern Honey Netwok) connected to the firewall DMZ interface.

- My PC connected to Firewall LAN interface

- Firewall policy, NATs and forwarding rules are functional.

From my PC i can ping and connect via ssh to the server DMZ IP address.

I am trying to configure sensors as per the website installation guide and I am facing some (I guess so) https/certificate errors. I am using the --no-check-certificate option with the wget command but I still have issues.

Would you guys be able to help me please?

* here is the command I need to complete:

wget --no-check-certificate "http://<WAN interface IP address>/api/script/?text=true&script_id=14" -O && sudo bash http://<WAN interface IP address> some KEY

* Here is the result :

 Thank you very much in advance for your assistance.

If you want your Honey Pot accessible to be accessible via your WAN interface IP, you need to configure it as a Server object, not with NAT rules.
Further, port 4434 is used by the WebUI of the SMB device for management by default.
You're therefore running a wget against the WebUI of the SMB device with a URL that won't work.
Either change the port used for the admin interface of the SMB device or change the port used by your Honey Pot device.
