If you've blocked the Solr port, then you can't access Solr at all, 
including the admin UI.  The UI is accessed through the same port as the 
rest of Solr.

The admin UI is a static set of resources (html, css, javascript, 
images, etc) that gets downloaded and runs within the browser, accessing 
the same API that anything else would.  When you issue a query with the 
admin UI, it is your browser that makes the query, not the server.

If you set up a reverse proxy that blocks URL paths for the API while 
allowing URL paths for the admin UI, then the admin UI won't work -- 
because everything the admin UI displays or does is accomplished by your 
browser making calls to the API.
