Knoppix 5.1 and BitDefender 1.5.6 Help - localhost and Port 10000 Access Errors

Hi,

Thanks for Your Help.

I've attempted to use the following and get the SAME Error when using them:
Knoppix 5.1
BitDefender Live! v. 1.5.6 CeBiT
BitDefender Security v.1.0

Knoppix 5.1 will not let Me download BitDefender.
The Actual BitDefender CDs run their version of Knoppix and
EACH ONE will NOT Allow Me to open the Webmin.
I followed the instructions for using it:
Open Root Console,
Become Super User: su -
Reset Password passwd
etc., etc., etc.

The Errors are that I CANNOT Access:
localhost:10000
(of which, is the DEFAULT for BitDefender.)

Yes, I AM using a Router.
(LinkSys)

When the BitDefender Security CD loads,
It shows Errors of not being able to access the localhost:10000 port.
This is ON LOAD!

My Concern is that I want the Knoppix 5.1 and BitDefender 1.5.6 CD to WORK
WITHOUT These Crazy Errors.

Any Ideas?

Thanks in Advance for All of Your Help!

PS.  I HAVE gone through the FAQs and Help files with knopper.net and the knoppix sites,
and ALL of the instructions say the SAME Thing...
Same instructions to follow.
I've Attempted Their Instructions and they don't even have the errors listed.
(that I can find.)
Example:
They tell You that You need to perform a certain action.
Yet, they don't say that there was an error previous to performing this action and
that it SHOULD Work.
AAArrrrggghhh!

try this

In order to use the BitDefender webmin module you must first install Webmin from http://www.webmin.com.

Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix.
Using any browser that supports tables and forms (and Java for the File Manager module), you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and so on.

After you succesfully installed Webmin you must: - open the panel into a browser (http://hostname:10000/) - go to Webmin / Webmin Configuration / Webmin Modules- select the From ftp or http URL radio button - enter the following value in the textbox

ftp://ftp.bitdefender.com/pub/unices/RemoteAdmin/webmin/BitDefender.wbm.gz- Press Install Module

Hi ssvl,

Thanks.

I'll have to check this out 'cause I thought that BitDefender had it's Own 'Webmin' type module Already Included/Installed?

There is an Icon on the Desktop for it when You load up BitDefender, so You'd THINK that it was already installed?

I'll let You know within a few days.

Also, Am I supposed to open up a Port on the router (port 10000) to make this work or something?  As You can tell, I'm a bit lost.

Again, Thanks for Your Help.

Hi ssvl,

k... I've figured out what I was doing wrong.

I don't need to install the webmin package as You described above.
All I had to do was set the proper root password and I was able to
access the BitDefender Webmin section.

The REAL problem now is that I set the drive to scan with their
virus scan, and it won't run when clicking on the 'scan' button.

Everything else works with it.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Hi Netminder,

Thanks for Your Help in Closing Out This Q.

Not sure what You mean by:
"ASKER: If you have not responded to the comments left by the Experts, you may or may not receive a refund based on the responses to this post."

I've got Unlimited Expert Points being a Paid Member,
so not sure how a 'refund' fits into this.

... anyway, Here's the Answer:

When attempting to Scan the Windows Partition using the BitDefender CD,
AND when Attempting to access the Partitions on the HDD using Knoppics 5.1,
BOTH of them would not view the Files (and no access to them, either,)
when using one of the mounted drives.

Problem is, it really DID access the CORRECT Partitions on My HDD,
but I had to access it using the 'hda1' and NOT the 'hda11' that was
set up on the Knoppix Desktop (with Both BitDefender and Knoppix 5.1)

I realized that the 'hda11' was My LINUX Partition that was ALREADY Installed
on the HDD AND that, since I was using Knoppix (and BitD,) that the Drives
Are Not MOUNTED for THAT Particular Linux Installation.
(Because I didn't load up the Linux from the HDD, I did from the CD...)

Ooops...
Well, Live and Learn.

Once I figured that out, it ALL Worked.

:)
