TrueNAS Scale – Lessons Learnt

This Christmas, I’ve been playing around with TrueNAS Scale to create a homelab. Here are some things I’ve learned, just in case they are helpful to someone. I will be keeping this post updated.

Access from your IP is restricted

I locked myself out by adding an incorrect IP to ‘Allowed IP Addresses.’ When trying to access my TrueNAS local IP address, I would get ‘Access from your IP is restricted.’ To fix this, I added a screen and a keyboard to my server. Accessed option 6, ‘Open TrueNAS CLI shell,’ then typed:

system general update ui_allowlist=[]


That should clear all allowed / whitelisted ip addreses and should let you access the config web ui
