vCenter 6.5 Appliance Firewall

With Flash Player no longer supported and can't use the vSphere Web Client Flash Version I'm trying to follow the instructions on managing the vCenter Server/Appliance's Firewall Configuration:

  1. On the vSphere Web Client main page, click Home > Administration > System Configuration.
  2. Under System Configuration, click Nodes.
  3. Under Nodes, select a node and click the Manage tab.
  4. Select Firewall and click Edit.
  5. Edit the firewall settings. Option. Action. Add a firewall rule. ...
  6. Click OK to save your edits

These steps no longer work as it simply takes you to https://vcenter:5480 when you click the node link and vCenter 6.5 doesn't have the Firewall tab like 6.7 and later versions. How does VMware expect you to manage the firewall configuration of your vCenter Server/Appliance now? I'd prefer to not have to Putty/SSH into the server and update the firewall config manually, I want a GUI Option.
