Astrisk WebAdmin


I currently setup a Astrisk server all is well internally when I access the web admin using http://xx.xx.xx.xx:8088 

So then I forward port 8088 on my firewall to the LAN IP of my Astrisk server and it does not come up... when putting in http://mywanIP:8088

Does anyone know if I have to config a certain file in the astrisk to allow access in the web admin from the outside? Please advise and thanks!

It could be your ISP only allow port 80 as HTTP port. Check with your ISP first.

All ports on my ISP are open to us...I've already spoken to them regarding any ports being blocked.
Here is the alternative.

Basically, do the port mapping for ssh port to the webmin box on firewall/router. Then use ssh tunneling to access webmin.
on your home machine (you can use putty for Windows box) to setup ssh tunnel
ssh user@MyWAN-IP -L 8080:localhost:8088

Then open the browser and type

1. Make sure you can do ssh user@MyWAN-IP first.
2. Do not close ssh session/tunnel while you still browsing the webmin
