webmin connection 1.270 FC4

Posted on 2006-05-18

I have a fresh install of FC4. I can connect with ssh, and I can ping the FC4 machine and other machines in the network from the FC4 machine.
I installed the RPM for webmin 1.270. It said install successful and that I could log in with the https:\\server:10000.
I've done this before with RH9 with no problems.
Is there some other configuration setting I'm missing? I can't connect with MySQL either, maybe related?
Thanks for any help

    your welcome. Now if you want to keep the firewall running, you would have to open the port 10000 and and whatever is needed for mysql. You can configure the wall with webmin, by the way...
