The connection has timed out

I'm getting "The connection has timed out" when trying to access https://mysitesip:10000 or


Is Webmin currently running on your server?

You can verify that by executing this command as root on the command line:

/etc/init,d/webmin restart

After running that, are you able to access port 10000?


After running the command I can't access port 10000.

I did change the command to /etc/init.d/webmin restart instead of /etc/init,d/webmin restart.

Sorry, that was a typo. After correcting the command as you showed above, did that resolve the problem?

If not, what is the output of this command:

netstat -an | grep :10000

tcp 0 0* LISTEN udp 0 0*

Okay, so Webmin is indeed listening for a connection. That means something else is causing the problem :-)

Could your ISP be blocking port 10000? Or a firewall? Also, if you're running your server behind a NAT router, you'd need to make sure you're forwarding port 10000 from the router to the server.


Yeah Firewall was blocking it, I added it and now is fixed. Thanks you for the help!
