Do you have DNS running? If yes, do you have a reverse lookup for your server IP address?

No, DNS is not running.'Tks   everything is set for DHCP-- setup for red and green zone connections.

I just tried to install IPCop here.
It asks you for 'root' password during installation and for 'admin' password also.

For 'web' access user 'admin' is used, the password is what you have entered before.
For 'ssh' user 'root' is used.

After many experiments I've found when IPCop don't ask you 'root' and 'admin' passwords while initial setup.
When you press 'Cancel' at _any_ stage of installation process it does to reboot and everything that was not configured (including passwords) remains unconfigured. You _can_ change root password if you follow tips in installation manual 'B.2. Loss of the Root Password', but some other subsystems will remain unconfigured.

So I recommend you to run installation again and finish it in an expected way.
