Webmin: connection refused!


I have Webmin on my Gentoo server, but can't access it from my desktop. I have verified that webmin is running. The IP of my server is:

When I try and connect to it using my browser, I am told that the connection has been refused by

I have tried both and

I have also added the line:

webmin: #desktop IP

to /etc/hosts.allow

Also, I have tried accessing from the server itself, but I'm also told that the connection has been refused.

Does nayone have any suggestions? I remember setting up webmin before on Suse and it was easy. Is there a config file which I have to change?

I think webmin runs on port 10000 not 1000 - try:

If that doesn't work then take a look at your firewall rules:
iptables -L

Also check that webmin is listening on all IPs:
netstat -nlp
