Unhappy Can't Access Webmin in Local network


Hey,

I'm having the same problem here in my local network. When do I try to access my webmin in network using local IP (http://192.168.0.251:10000/), it gives me the following error, --

======================================================================
ERROR
The requested URL could not be retrieved

While trying to retrieve the URL: http://192.168.0.251:10000/

The following error was encountered:

* Connection Failed

The system returned:

(113) No route to host

The remote host or network may be down. Please try the request again.

Your cache administrator is root.
======================================================================

I've set the following rule in my iptables, -

-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT

and restarted the iptables several times but didn't get any luck.

Can anybody say a word to resolve my issue.

Note : Although it's working fine on server where webmin installed.

Thanks.

Well I've never used Webmin but I did have almost the same problem with my hardware firewall. Try adding a s to the http and see if that works. https://192.168.0.251:10000 also make sure you can ping that box.

Tahnks for the reply.

I've already opened a port 10000 in my iptables but it cannot resolve my problem yet. Also I'm not using the SSL module in Webmin. It has been already disabled or not installed.

Is there any config issue at the BIND level ?? I'm not sure but I've installed almost all modules which requires for Server level at the time of Fedora Core 3 installation.

Ashwin.

Hey,

FYI.

I got the solution. I stopped my firewall temporarily and I'm able to access the webmin login through local IP address. But I'm confused around the firewall rule. I've already added the following firewall rule in my iptables but it didn't works, -

iptables -A INPUT -s 0/0 -i eth1 -d 192.168.1.251 -p TCP --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT

Can anybody suggest me what should I do to resolve this issue with firewall.

Thanks.

Ashwin

Might want to try logging all traffic by using
iptables -A INPUT -j LOG
as your first rule in iptables. Then look at the log file at
/var/log/messages

After you hit port 10000 check the above log file and you can see exactly what is going on. This might help you adjust your rule.

Hey,

I followed your instructions but unfortunately it's not so much useful. There are no logs can defined from system at any error message. Could please discribe this thing more so it would be helpful.

Thanks.

Ashwin
