Mine is set for https access only - this is standard dor my setups.

I do not allow management from the WAN - but I do from all other interfaces.

In the Advanced tab I do have "Allow fragmentedt IPsec packets" checked.

I am at 6 days uptime (added an interface and had to reboot last week).  I 
am setting up a box to capture all packets on the WAN and LAN interfaces to 
reference that to the lockups (try anyway).  I hope to find time to get that 
gear in place this week.
