Accessing Admin console remotely

Hi:

I installed Wildfire no problem on a CentOS 4.3 box via SSH. How do I access the admin console remotely to configure Wildfire? I have DNS resolving to the box OK but when I try: http://myserver.com:9090 to access the admin console, it can’'t find the console page.

Cheers,

Dave

Hi Dave,

did you start it?

Did you open also the firewall or is it blocking access to port 9090?

You could check that ports 9090 and 9091 are open (netstat -an|grep 909) and probably also the Wildfire log files.

Hi:

Thanks for the quick response…

Yes the ports are open:

netstat -an |grep 909

tcp 0 0 :::9090 :::* LISTEN

tcp 0 0 :::9091 :::* LISTEN

It’‘s also showing in the process list as running. It’‘s actually a clean install and the server is hooked directly to the net with no firewall yet. We’'re pretty much wide open.

Cheers.

Hi:

You were correct. It was a iptables port problem. I just had to get jiggy with CentOS 4.3 default iptables setup. I added the appropriate ports to /etc/sysconfig/iptables and all is well. Just a quicky for future users who have this problem. Just do a ‘‘service iptables status’’ to check to see if the ports are open for wildfire.

Cheers,

Dave
