access to webmin via xp


hi
my OS is fedora core 1
I've install webmin ok

i'm trying to give my self access from a XP browser.

setup adsl-hub-server to hub, xp to hub

I read this from webmin pages

How can I change Webmin's list of allowed IP addresses from the shell?
The file you need to modify is /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf , in particular the allow= or deny= lines. If the allow= line exists, it contains a list of all addresses and networks that are allowed to connect to Webmin. Similarly, the deny= line contains addresses that are not allowed to connect. After modifying this file, you need to run /etc/webmin/stop ; /etc/webmin/start for the changes to take effect. Naturally, the file can only be edited by the root user.


I've edit the file it says by adding allow=10.x.x.x

i restarted webmin and i cant contect to it.

here is what i have done
[root@www downloads]# ls
webmin-1.121-1.noarch.rpm
[root@www downloads]# rpm -Uvh webmin-1.121-1.noarch.rpm
warning: webmin-1.121-1.noarch.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 11f63c51

as root with your root password.

blockhost_failures=5

passwd_uindex=0
passwd_pindex=1
passwd_cindex=2

passwd_mode=0

allow=10.1.1.4


[root@www webmin]# /etc/webmin/stop
Stopping Webmin server in /usr/libexec/webmin
[root@www webmin]# /etc/webmin/start
Starting Webmin server in /usr/libexec/webmin
[root@www webmin]#

I am at a lost why it wont let me see webmin, but it show my fedora core test page..

just wondering if i have to let my eth0 though

No i dont, i use my IP of the server

because i cant view my URL address via XP box, webserver is on another box next to me.127.x.x.x

I've only been able to view my URL address via http://10.x.x.x

if i view my URL on the linux box when i had the GUI side, i was only able to view it if i added my eth0 IP and my hostname to the hostaddress using webmin.

that make sence ?

I'm just checking if you connect to http://10.x.x.x:10000
the :10000 is very important as that's the port webmin runs on.

Are you running squid? What message do you get? Is it "can't find server" or is it "access denied"?

Cheers,

Cliff

In the simplest of things, can you ping the private IP assigned to the box from XP?

Cool
