unable to connect to webmin

I am running a Debian box and am trying to connect to webmin from my windows box. have installed and started webmin in Debian and have gone in and removed the "allow=" line form the miniserv.conf file. I am attempting to connect to webmin by using IE and typing "httpcommand to connect to //iloshorewall:10000/" but its not finding the server, all I get is a page cannot be displayed. I have these two systems connected via a hub which I an using to test configurations so there is no proxy or switching issues that exist. Any ideas?

In some distributions is does, in others it doesn't. Try it both ways.
