Angry Can not access the Webmin on Linux


Guru's

I have installed the Webmin on my Red Had M/c. I am trying to access the webmin consol on my windows m/c and it can't display. Webmin is listining on port 10000 and I can access it on the Linux Consol only. I have another box running Solaris and I have installed webmin on the Solaris m/c as well which I can access through my windows m/c. This way I know that there is no problem on my windows m/c or network.

I have tryed changing the port to 81 for webmin on Linux m/c and that also doesn't works. I have an appache server running on my Linux on port 80 and I am able to access the webpages by http://linux01. If I try to add any of the port no. to it, It fails. i.e. http://linux01:10000 or http://linux01:81 is not accessable from any of the m/c on my local network.

Any help will be great!!!
Thanks
Bal

To access webmin you have to first install a secure webserver such as apache with ssl mod.

If you have this then simply type

https://localhost:10000 and it should work

hope that helps

Thanks for the reply, I can access the webmin on the consol with http://localhost:10000 but not from my NT m/c on the same local network. I have another server running Solaris and I can access webmin on that from my NT m/c by doing http://sun01:10000 but I am not able to access http://linux01:10000 or http://linux01:81 from my NT m/c.

Thanks

Hi again

Unfortunately, i have no idea in how to solve your problem, but maybe someone else will be kind enough to offer some asistance.

I,m slightly worried however that you arent using a secure server to run webmin, as its extremely dangerous not to, for obvious reasons.

Humour me and try https://linux01:10000

i know im kind of late on the post, but i found this post as one of the 1st google resusts and took me a while to figure it out.

the answer to you question is to disable the firewall that comes with SUSE, after i did that it worked fine and i was able to access the webmin web interface from my windows workstations. remember to save settings.
