I am trying to get Webmin working and I think my port 10000 is closed. I have done some reading of previous questions and it appears that I need to edit the port line of miniserv.conf to allow for port 10000 to be used then restart webmin. Also, I should edit the IPtables file and add a line for port 10000.

My problem is that I do not know how to edit files such as miniserv.conf and IPtables from the Putty console.

Please tell me how to edit these files from the console.

the answer is type "vi /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf" and "vi /etc/sysconfig/iptables"

how stupid all these commands are why not make it more logical like the command "edit miniserv.conf"
