Can't seem to open port 10000 on FC6

I'm looking after an FC6 install on a dedicated hosting server for my brother.

I've installed webmin on it, but can't seem to open port 10000 to get at it. I've been using system-config-securitylevel-tui (all tutorials/fixes I've found don't have the 'tui', but that's all I have).
I've checked with the hosting provider, and they say they don't block any ports, but kindly offered to for 90.

I've tried enabling port 10000, enabling port 10000 and editing /etc/services so it says 'webmin', and just turning the firewall off.
But I still get errors connecting to it from home (and anywhere else)

If I SSH in, and lynx http://localhost:10000 it works.

SELinux is switched off, and I'm having no problems with other services (http, smtp, ftp, dns etc.)

Any ideas?

In /etc/sysconfig/iptables add this line.
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT

Restart iptables as root. /sbin/service iptables restart

See if that helps.



fedora, firewall, webmin
