the default is that the webgui is only available on the normal interface and then only on that same subnet for security reasons.

see if you really want to change this.

if you are thinking about making your nas4free available from the internet in most cases that is not a good idea unless you know exactly what you are doing.
Nas4Free 11.1.0.4.4517. Supermicro X10SLL-F, 16gb ECC, i3 4130, IBM M1015 with IT firmware. 4x 3tb WD Red, 4x 2TB Samsung F4, both GEOM AES 256 encrypted.

I agree with b0ssman that it's not a good idea to have N4F available in this way. Since you're using pfsense, I highly recommend you use a VPN to connect to your infrastructure as it's much more secure this way. PFSense has an OpenVPN config package that makes it very easy. For OpenVPN clients I recommend Viscosity for Windows, TunnelBlick for Mac though not sure for Linux client.

Can we use a commercial vpn with it? or have to work with OpenVPN client.

By commercial VPN I'm assuming you mean a proxy-style VPN, which would not be an appropriate method in this case. What kind of router are you using (I'm not sure if this is a business or residence.)

It is not business, and not proxy though. The ones that provide proper encryption and security. I guess you are not thinking i am talking about a free vpn.
