Can't connect to Server with Webmin


I recently installed Ubuntu server 9.04. It appears to be functioning correctly in that I can acces it from other Windows machines ony my network. I installed Webmin to remotely administer this server, however I cannot connect using Webmin from my other machines. I am only running Samba on this server at the present time.

I attempted to access the webmin conf file at /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf but permission wasa denied, evenas root.

Any help would be appreciated

Have you tried connecting locally and examining the iptables configuration or the webmin configuration?

I'm not sure how to access the IPtables.

I can connect to the shared files from my other computers, I just can't use Webmin.

Thanks

You tried to look at the webmin file as root on the localhost (eg: you walk to console, and type: root[enter]password[enter] then you're sitting at a command prompt and then opened the file in an editor?) and you can't access the file... or you tried to browse to it via the network from your pc using root's credentials? They are significantly different.

I'm attempting to access the conf file on the console with CLI. Root, password, /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf at which point I receive the message permission denied. Nevermind I just got in, but I'm not sure what I should be looking for.

Thanks

You won't be able to run the file directly (as calling it /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf would do) you'll have to use an editor. I'd suggest posting a copy up here so we can have a look at it. While you're at it put up a copy of your iptables (iptables -L -n). You can display the file by typing: cat /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf (you can mail yourself a copy by executing either command followed by | /usr/sbin/sendmail youremail@addr.tld )

Thank you for your response. I had the server configured with a DHCP address. I changed it to Static using the same address, and that solved the issue. Now I'm trying to get my Mac to connect.

Thanks
